Take it away Simone!


There’s glamour, sex, and sabotage on the International Grand Prix circuit as investigative journalist Stephanie fights for her story, her life, and the man she loves.
Investigative journalist Stephanie Beauman takes an undercover job helping dangerously attractive Jeffrey Caroway make a documentary on the glamorous International Grand Prix circuit, only to find that former lover Gabriel de Romanos is now an owner of the Argentinean team.
Gabriel will stop at nothing to win both the championship and Stephanie, and sees French driver Jean-Luc as the biggest obstacle to both. Jeffrey, having already rejected her once, now seems intent to keeping an eye on her as they race toward the glittering climax at the new Texas Circuit of the Americas.

Stephanie’s uncovering of murder and corruption involving both Jeffrey and Gabriel puts her own and Jean-Luc’s lives at risk. She must decide who she can trust and who she loves, but will it be too late to save Jean-Luc and find happiness?

Writing this was lots of fun- so was the research! You don’t need to be into motor sport to enjoy this, part of the reason for the topic was because it’s big money and power (and therefore a great basis for corruption in a story) – as well as going to twenty different locations around the world. It’s actually based on this season which doesn’t finish until November- there is a lot of real action from the races up until Monaco and then my fictitious teams take over! This year the GP is in Texas for the first time, and that’s where this story has its spectacular climax (with a ball only Texans could do!).

It’s the third and final with a HEA ending but stands by itself so you don’t have to have read the others. In Embedded Stephanie falls in love with the enigmatic Gabriel, who in this book is one of the owners of the Argentinean team, in the second book Expos√© she falls for the dangerous film producer Jeffrey, whom she is working for in this book. She is torn between the two, though wonders if Jean-Luc (the French racing driver pictured on the cover) might be for her, until she sorts out her story (after nearly dying in an accident designed to kill Jean-Luc)- and who she really loves!


All books are available at www.bookstrand.com/simone-sinna, the first two are also on Amazon as Ebooks and Embedded is in print.

I would also like to take a minute to tell you about a new anthology that supports a foundation called Musicares.

Music Speaks is an Anthology of 11 individual stories of differing genre's put together to benefit Musicares Foundation.

Here is a blurb from author Laurie Sorenson's contribution to the anthology.

Music Heals All Hearts 

Martin plays guitar and sings for the patients at St. Vincent’s Hospital, disfigured on purpose during his teenage years, he wears an eye patch to cover an unseeing eye. While singing in the emergency room one day, Melissa is brought in screaming and in pain covering her eyes. There was an immediate connection to the woman for Martin and over the weeks of recovery that follows, they fall in love while she can’t see his disfigured face. Once her eyesight come back, he fears she will reject him, as she fears he will reject her once he sees her without the bandages covering her own scars. The fear is unfounded for both of them as they realize that music connected them in all ways and love conquers all.
