Hearts Racing Cover Art is Here

I’m pleased to announce that the world’s only cycling/CrossFit romance novel is not only complete, but has a cover art image. It was a challenging process. I’m lucky in that Cheryl, who handles cover art for the book’s publisher, is very patient and capable. I appreciate her help a lot.

Also complete is the book’s front matter/blurb. Here’s the text of the blurb:

Riding in a near-future America languishing under the oppressive jackboot of the conquering French, Buck Heart is a professional cyclist on the New Lyon (formally Atlanta) team. Onward for the glory of New France, he charges. Losing is not an option.

Left shoulder injuries force him to seek the training expertise of CrossFit instructor Faith Racing; his career and his life are crashing over the handlebars.

Instructor Faith has her own troubles. Concerns include her brother’s incarceration for stealing wine and a forced wedding to the soon-to-be mayor of New Lyon. Kindness is not her fiancé’s forte, but Faith must go through with the marriage to stay her brother’s execution.

In secret, though, Buck and Faith work with cyclists from Miami, as well as their mysterious benefactor from Mexico, as they compete against Buck’s former team and their own growing desires for one another in order to save Faith’s brother and Buck’s career.

New France may stand; New France may fall. Get on the team and hear their cry: “Vamonos!”

I should have information on pre sales soon, and I’ll be pushing hard to get as many of those as I can, so get ready to get romantic.
