Overview

Can an ordinary woman make a billionaire bachelor fall in love with her…so she can dump him as soon as he’s hooked? Lara Dixon sets out to make it happen with infamous international playboy Clay Creighton.

Lara embarks on a mission of justice, certain that Creighton’s Fast Lane media empire, with its philosophy of “fast women, fast cars and fast living,” encourages men to stray from happy homes. And by “men,” Lara means her ex, a Fast Lane devotee who turned out to have had not a single shred of respect for women.

Lara finds backers to help her get revenge on the notorious, but decidedly handsome, tycoon. With new fabulous clothes and a glorious makeover, she infiltrates Clay’s inner circle and uses her research about his likes and dislikes to charm him into believing she’s not just another L.A. woman looking to romance a rich guy.

But as she becomes steeped in the Fast Lane culture during a weekend involving an exhilarating ride in a very fast car and passionate moments in Clay’s very exotic Palm Spring resort, “Heat,” Lara discovers nothing is what she expected. Especially Clay. Women’s perceptions of him, it turns out, are based on fiction—the products of a skilled public relations team. Lara’s startled by how well Clay treats her, how much they have in common—and how much she’s falling for him.

So now Lara has a new problem: Can she put the brakes on her plan to destroy Clay and make the turn toward a happily-ever-after instead?

This light-hearted romp into today’s jet set includes a cast of wacky assistants, bubbly fashionistas and unexpected enemies—and friends.

Palm Springs Heat is a fast, fun read—a contemporary romance with a touch of intrigue and a reminder that nothing, not even a waterfall, is exactly what it seems.

Romance author Donna McDonald (Never Too Late series) says Palm Springs Heat is as intriguing as it is romantic. “As a writer, I have high standards. My phone kept ringing and I pushed everyone away because they were interrupting my reading. The first Fast Lane book kept me turning pages to find out what was really going on.”

Katherine Lowry Logan, author of The Ruby Brooch, says Palm Springs Heat is a “fun, fun book. Strong women, great descriptions. Very well-written.”

Meet the Author

I'm a journalist who wrote several screenplays before I started writing the Fast Lane Romance series to fill a lull in my freelancing business--and I've never enjoyed writing anything more. Oh, and I'm a guy. My wife is a professional editor, and I never release a book without her approving the final manuscript. And she is tough.
