Intro to Moving Too Fast
From Author Helen Conrad

“Winning isn’t everything-it’s the only thing.”

Injured racecar driver Grant Carrington lives by those words and Carrie Harlow is afraid he’ll end up dying by them. She resists him at first, instinctively seeing that he’s dangerous to know. He needs her skill as a physical therapist, and she lives to heal. But he lives to win. That puts them at odds right from the beginning.

Grant is probably the hardest hero I’ve ever written. He puts on a gruff, rough shell to protect himself from the vulnerability he feels after being injured. His past is littered with old emotional pain and a history that makes him think he doesn’t deserve to be loved by a woman as good and loveable as Carrie. It takes patience and courage for her to work with him—but she heals his heart at the same time she heals his body, and in the end, he realizes that accepting and giving love makes him the biggest winner of all.

I hope you enjoy these books—and be on the lookout for the next three which will be released soon!

Adult Romance

A sweet old-fashioned girl

isn’t what Grant Carrington is looking for. A man who lives for speed and danger, he’s only slowed down because he’s been forced to by an injury. Carrie Harlow isn’t his type, but he needs her in order to heal. She knows she’s playing with fire, but she feels she can help him and she goes for it—even though she knows she’s endangering her own heart as she fixes his.

Recipe for Carrie's Chicken Picatta included.

Purchase from Amazon.
I received Moving Too Fast in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by Prism Book Tours. Carrie has moved back home, she’s started her own physical therapy business but she just hasn’t been able to get her first client yet. Life since moving home has been like Cinderella she’s got the perfect boyfriend he’s successful, handsome, movies in the right social circles. Life should be perfect for Carrie but at a party she lays on eyes on Grant Carrington and she can’t deny there is something about him. After running into him in the wine cellar and he kisses her everything in her life changes.

Grant has his own issues he hasn’t talked to his family in years and after a fatal racing wreck ended his racing career. He’s hanging out in an old mansion in Destiny Bay avoiding people and pushing him knee to get better. When he decides to take Carrie up on her physical therapy he didn't know she would heal his heart in ways he didn’t know it would be fixed.  When Carrie takes on Grants case she didn't intend to fall in love with him and most of all she knew it wouldn’t last forever. Will Carrie be able to help him return to racing that he loves?

I love Carrie she’s just a sweetheart, and I like the sweet innocent girl who’s real not some made up socialite. Grant has issues but maybe that’s why I like him so much he’s very much a broken guy who needs a girl to heal his heart. I like the connection between the two it’s sweet romance which is my favorite. We also get to see the prior girls from the prior books as well as more of Mickie. I keep hoping she finds her happy ever after.

Moving Too Fast is the third installment in the Sweet series which is based on Carrie and Grant. After reading all three this is clearly my favorite there is just something about these two I just loved. The characters are easy to connect with you can’t help falling in love with them. I loved that the story is also a clean sweet romance it’s one of my favorite themes in romance. The author has created a clever story between a nice girl and bad boy but putting her own unique spin. Moving Too Fast is a fast paced romance that captures the imagination as well as the heart. I actually read the whole book while sitting at the base hospital with a friend having surgery, and made her wait while I finished the last couple of chapters. The book is well written it flows from start to finish, I think the author did a fantastic job and I can’t wait to check out her other book.

A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"
