Nobody but You
St. Martin’s, Mar 3 2009, $6.99
Caitlin Lawrence and Cameron McBride fell in love. They became engaged, but Caitlin failed to show up at the altar. The jilting destroyed Cameron’s soul. He even found his vocation as a NASCAR racer no longer satisfying and vows “no” to love.
Five years later, though not passionate about car racing like he was before the jilt, Cameron is back as one of NASCAR’s best drivers. He has adhered to his personal pledge of no relationships as nothing will ever take him off his game again. That is until he is hurt racing and is at Mercy Hospital for treatment when he meets Caitlin; who is there because her four and a half years old son Joshua injured his shoulder. The child Cameron never knew he sired until now. The precocious boy has his stamp on his visage.
Although the device of hiding a baby from the father has been overdone, fans of the Grayson Friends saga will relish Francis Ray’s NASCAR second chance at love romance. The story line is as fast as Cameron drives on the track while focusing on the lead couple reconciling (abetted by Joshua) rather than accusing. Readers will enjoy the second lap.
