One Last Hold by Angela Smith #Romance #NewRelease #99Cents


He has a shaded past…


Wesley Webb is at the pinnacle of his auto racing career when his main rival is murdered hours after their confrontation. That, along with evidence found at the scene, shades him as prime suspect. Now he’s under intense press scrutiny, particularly from Caitlyn Daniels, an ex-girlfriend who knows all about his secret past.

And she’s the one woman who could expose him…


Caitlyn thought to never see Wesley again. Now, his life could be in her hands. Ten years ago, a tragedy tore apart everything she held dear, including their relationship. When she’s assigned to do an exclusive story with the reluctant race car driver she once loved, she believes this could be her purging. But chemistry tears apart her resolve to stay strong. Can they work out their differences and fall in love again, or will tragedy keep them apart?


EXCERPT



“What am I going to do?” Wesley poked his head out of the shower and held up one of Caitlyn’s old razors. “I don’t have a razor. I don’t have a toothbrush.”
Caitlyn, clad in a long satin robe, snatched the razor he held and rummaged through her suitcase until she found a new blade. “You can use my razor. I have new blades.”
He touched the fuzz on his face. “A woman’s razor?” he exclaimed.
“What’s wrong with that? It’s a new blade.” She changed the blade and he turned off the shower. He stepped out, dried himself, and wrapped the towel around his waist.
Caitlyn gave the razor back to him. “You going to let me borrow your toothbrush, too?” he teased.
“You could always opt not to shave.” Caitlyn swept her finger over his face and down his chin. “I think your stubble is pretty damn sexy.”
She grinned, snatched the towel from around his waist and stepped back, popping him with it. Anticipating her movement, he shifted his foot and grabbed her arm, bringing her against his very naked body. He touched her, trailing his hands under her robe and across her warm body.
She stepped back. “You’re going to be late.”
Today would be a busy day, starting with a meeting he had with his crew members, practice sessions he had to run through before tomorrow’s race, and an hour long gathering with his fans. “Unless you really do want to borrow my toothbrush, you’ll need to get back to your RV,” she said.
“Yeah, I’ll be late but I have a great excuse.” He wrenched her even closer and moved his hips against her. “I have the pleasure of a beautiful woman’s company. Surely they’ll understand.”
“I don’t want to get you into trouble,” she said.
“Darling, I’m already in trouble.”


Author Bio:


During her senior year in high school, Angela Smith was dubbed most likely to write a novel, and that has been my dream ever since her mother read 'Brer Rabbit' to her and her sister so often that they were able to recite it before being able to read. Before venturing into writing, she fell into the perfect job in criminal justice and later became a certified paralegal. When not caring for her small farm or spending time with her husband of two decades, she loves to craft, read, go off-roading, and dream of all the places she’ll visit one day.
