Overview

He's fast. She's furious. They're in for the ride of their lives.
Rising star Roxanne St. Claire puts the pedal to the metal in a story of intrigue and passion that will get your heart racing!
When sexy NASCAR racer Beau Lansing tracks down high society debutante Celeste Bennett, it's a matter of life or death. Stunned at the secret Beau reveals, Celeste is forced to make a life-altering decision. But with her love life on the skids and her family life in a tailspin, escaping incognito into Beau's world is just what she needs -- especially if she can get answers about her past.
Beau needs Celeste to save a man's life -- he never expected a high-octane attraction that could wreck his well-protected heart. And when Celeste's life is threatened by someone who clearly knows her real identity, Beau has to risk everything -- including his own life -- to save her. With menacing forces in the driver's seat and time ticking too fast, the two must win the biggest race of all...the race for their lives and their love.

    Wow

    ## AWESOME ## Very rarely do i find a book with no faults. This time i did. It's absolutely fabulous. The two leads had tremendous chemistry. Another problem i tend to find is that i dislike the heroine frequently (whiny, clingy....etc). Not this one, she's amazing. And the hero was fun, sweet and oh so HOT! I loved the way the author let their relationship build. And the ending was very satisfying. A must read for sure!

    Killer Curves by Roxanne St. Claire Celeste Bennett knows a secr

    Killer Curves by Roxanne St. Claire
    Celeste Bennett knows a secret and when someone else finds out about it she has to make a choice. While the one choice will save a life that same choice will destroy a family. She must enter a world unknown to her to help her make the right decision. Going from the her high class and structured world in New York to the world of stock car driving. What first seems like culture shock quickly begins to feel like home.




    Beau Lansing had lost his father to a drunk driver when he was a teenager. He would do everything possible to help the man who had stepped into those shoes twenty years ago. He is determined to get this debutante to help him. She may not be his type of woman, but he finds himself enjoying her company while trying to help her make the right decision.




    There is more at stake then Celeste’s decision and she ends up in charade that she’s falling deeper into each day she’s around Beau, and that’s not all she’s falling into. Not to mention a supposed curse that is causing all kinds of issues for the racing team. More mystery and mayhem is happening off the track as well as on it. A story line that holds on and keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next.
    **Sexual content and language  Roxanne St. Claire has two more racing related books in the Harlequin NASCAR Library Series as well; A NASCAR Holiday: 'Tis the Silly Season and Thunderstruck.

    This book is a keeper


    This isn't your ordinary NASCAR romance. Not by a long shot! When I began this book, I thought it was a racing romance with a twist. But, it's so much more. It's romantic suspense at it's very best. This book is a keeper.

    Wonderful!

    Wow -- this is a fantastic romance novel with suspense, family drama and humor. Yes, there's a lot about NASCAR and it's fun if you follow the sport, but what is incredible about this book is the emotion, the humor and the tug at your heartstrings for these characters. This is my first book by Roxanne St. Claire and I will read everything she's written. Highly recommended!

    Killer Curves I predict will win many awards!

    Killer Curves takes one on the fast track at lightening speed when the rich, classy and beautiful Celeste meets head on with the sexy, charming and powerful Beau. At each turn, the story takes twists and takes the reader into the world of auto racing and NASCAR. To describe the book would ruin the story for the reader. But let me just say this, you won¿t be disappointed with this wonderful Roxanne St. Claire book. Killer Curves is a ¿real killer¿.

    Va-Va-Va-Voom!

    Roxanne St. Claire writes a killer story! Secrets, danger, plot twists, sexual tension, and a really hot hero -- throw that all together and you can bet good money that you'll race through this book with no thought of making dinner or going to sleep until you're done. Roxanne's an author to note: 'Killer Curves' isn't a fluke. Her other novels are all winners, too! Her books are not only worth your money, they're worth your precious time!

    Zoom, Zoom

    When bad boy racing legend Beau Lansing shows up in NYC and personally requests her as a guide at the Guggenheim, socialite Celeste Bennett knows that something's up. Before long, she finds out that Beau knows the secret she's kept since she was a teenager. Beau's mentor, Travis Chastaine, is dying and only Celeste can save his life. And now Beau must convince Celeste to make the sacrifice necessary to do so. He asks her to donate a kidney for Travis. But before she'll consider it, Celeste wants to learn more about the man who fathered her and then took a huge pay-off to disappear from her life. She takes a position with Chastaine Motorsports, working incognito as a sponsor liaison. Celeste becomes Cece, Beau becomes enamored of this woman who's his total opposite and they both become very concerned when someone threatens her. Roxanne St. Claire is living up to last year's 'Publisher's Weekly' prediction that she would be one of the next big names in writing. She blends NASCAR, high society, romance and suspense and then runs flat-out across the finish line for a checkered flag.

    Entertaining contemporary romance

    Guggenheim Museum volunteer docent Celeste Bennett escorts rich patrons on private tours. However, her clam world is shattered when NASCAR champion Beau ¿Lightning Bolt¿ Lansing specifically asks for her to serve as his guide because no one ever name requested her before. When she confronts him on why her, Beau explains he wants her to donate a kidney to save the life of her biological father NASCAR legend Travis Chastaine. She wants nothing to do with the man who deserted her pregnant mother before she was born................ Beau cannot understand why she would refuse as he sees Travis as a kindhearted father figure. He persuades Celeste to at least learn first hand that Travis is not the irresponsible SOB she thinks he is. Her condition is to work undercover at Chastaine Motorsports, which Beau agrees to help her accomplish. As they argue over Travis¿ merits, Beau and Celeste fall in love; neither wants the deep feelings as he enjoys 'Beau Babes' and she has broken three engagements because she has doubts about relationships................. This entertaining contemporary romance is at its best when Beau defends his beloved mentor while Celeste judges her sire as lacking. As they battle over Travis, fans get insight into the motives of this pair as the child makes the adult loud and clear in this fine tale. A subplot involving a crazy person with homicidal intent adds suspense but that also feels like an unnecessary hairpin turn to a story line that moves on full cylinders from the start to the finish line...................... Harriet Klausner

    make a pit stop to buy this book!!

    Beau Lansing and Celeste Bennett are on a collision course to love against the backdrop of NASCAR... Ms. St. Claire has successfully captured the pressures and behind the scenes glory of America's favorite motor sport. You can read a synopsis of the story in other reviews...I'll just say that the characters personalities come alive through their actions, reactions, and gestures. The action is non-stop, and you can just visualize the wheels turning as the author lets you inside the characters heads. I'm not a NASCAR fan, but this book made me want to watch the upcoming Daytona 500 to see what I've been missing :)
