About the Author

A native Texan, Alison sold one of the first of her over fifty published works live on the "Isn't It Romantic?" episode of CBS 48 Hours. The resulting book, CALL ME, was a Romantic Times finalist for Best First Series Book. Alison's book, A LONG, HARD RIDE, part of Harlequin's 60th Anniversary celebration, was nominated for an RT Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Harlequin Blaze of 2009. STRIPTEASE, a 2003 release from Harlequin Blaze and part of her popular gIRL-gEAR series, was also an RT Reviewer's Choice Award nominee.

Her 2005 Kensington Brava release, THE BEACH ALIBI, was a nominee for the national Quill Awards, sponsored by Reed Business Information. Alison is also the author of THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO WRITING EROTIC ROMANCE, and her 2009 novel, NO LIMITS, was a Cosmopolitan Magazine Red Hot Read. THE SECOND CHANCE CAFE, the first in her Hope Springs series from Amazon Montlake, was a 2014 RITA finalist in contemporary romance.

If there's a better career out there than writing, she doesn't want to know about it, as she's quite happy putting pen to paper in the backyard of her Texas home. That's where she lives with her petroleum geologist husband, three rescue dogs, and a colony of not-quite-feral cats, battling the heat each year to raise a bumper crop of tomatoes and jalapeno peppers.

Racing car pit crew chief Trey Davis takes a leave of absence to deal with his late father¿s affairs. He plans to sell his dad¿s Tennessee home amongst other assets, but has one overarching goal: to learn why his father attacked a highly regarded person.

The man attacked is the patriarch of the Worth racing family. He refuses to discuss the fight he had with the late Davis; not to his family or Davis¿ son. His granddaughter Cardin sees the incident dividing her beloved family especially her parents. She fakes an engagement to Trey knowing her parents will unite in opposition to her marrying a racing car employer. She did not expect to want her sham engagement to turn real after meeting Trey for the first time in years as she still is attracted to him.

This is car racing¿s modern day equivalent of the family feud as the Davis and Worth broods are more than rivals; they detest each other. In that environs, Trey and Cardin fall in love, but will their relationship survive their families or go the way of the Montagues and Capulets? Fans will enjoy tuning up their engines; as racing cars Romeo and Juliet deal with love and feuding families.

Ok. Admittedly I am a fan of racing. Cars. Boats. Motorcycles. Pretty much anything with an engine. There's something about the vibrations of a powerful engine rushing through my body that gets me twenty two different kinds of excited. You know what else gets me twenty two different kinds of excited? High school crushes that FINALLY get a happily ever after. I am a total fool for those sorts of romances. Alison Kent's A Long, Hard Ride has racing AND a high school crush that gets a chance at a happily ever after. Bliss! Cardin and Trey's romance is heated, tender and delicious. I had a smile on my face and a heart full of love at books end. If you're looking for a sexy and passionate read, pick up a copy of A Long, Hard Ride!
