Time moves fast on the racetrack. 
It moves even faster when you’re being chased.
 
Kinsley
 
It’s a transpacific flight, my fresh start thousands of miles away from the danger that’s imprisoned me. Producing a new Formula 1 docuseries is my way out. I’m done cowering, hiding, and being afraid of what lurks in the shadows.
 
Nothing can touch me now.
 
Except maybe him…
 
Embedding with this Texas racing team just became a lot more attractive. The way he’s looking at me, with eyes so blue they should be illegal? I recognize a sexy smolder when I see one. Can sixteen hours on an airplane really change my life? Let’s find out…
 
Alexandr
 
This chick is insane. Hot, but delusional.
 
She’s prattling on about some documentary, says she’s moving in with me. 
 
I’m an F1 racing driver. I’ve heard every pick-up line there is, but this takes the cake. 
 
It’s a long flight in tight quarters. The way she’s blushing is doing things to me. 
 
She’s just a stranger on a plane. I’ll never see her again. 
 
She doesn’t know the real me, the monster that I am.
 
She’s being hunted.
 
I’m being chased.
 
Neither of us anticipated what started on that flight. Neither knew the stakes were so high.
 
Now, hearts, families, and lives are on the line. We’re in for a hell of a collision when the lights go out.

When she isn’t writing, she’s exploring isolated corners of the world or curled up with a wool blanket and a stiff whiskey trying to warm up her perpetually cold toes.

Publisher: Luminosity Publishing LLC
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance

BLURB
Desperate times call for desperate measures. 

When the bad boy of the NHL, Zack Parker, lands himself in a public relations nightmare, his manager hatches a foolproof plan to get him out of trouble. With Zack’s hockey career in limbo, he reluctantly agrees to compete on a reality TV show called The Stars of Ballroom. 
At the end of the day, Zack figures he’ll slog his way through the first week, get voted off and everyone will forget about his latest scandal, plus he’ll score a brand-new contract with the Vegas Royals. 
What he doesn’t bank on is his tough, no-nonsense dance partner, Hannah Thorne from the UK. After missing the show last year due to an injury, Hannah is back and ready to battle it out to the end. She’s won the show twice and if she takes home the top prize again it will make her the only three-time champion of The Stars of Ballroom. 
Hannah is a fighter and has zero patience for Zack and his bad-boy ways. Her future depends on this victory, and she’s willing to risk everything to win. 
Go big or go home!

Zack 

“You totally fucked up this time,” my manager, Greg, huffed into the phone. “What the hell were you thinking, Zack? Jesus Christ, first you get ejected from the game, then kicked out of Drai’s After Hours Club? Was it not enough to ruin the team’s last chance to get into the playoffs, you had to cause a scandal in the process? It’s all over the news, ‘Hockey’s bad boy, Zack Parker from the Vegas Royals, urinates in a potted plant. Drai’s cries foul.’ This is a PR nightmare.” 
“Are you through?” I heaved, not wanting to listen to any more of his bullshit. “My head is killing me and I’m fucking tired.” 
“Through?” he bellowed. “I’m just getting started. You’re lucky Drai’s only kicked your ass out and didn’t press charges. You need to make some changes or—” 
“Or what?” I spat back and hurled myself out of bed to get water or whiskey, whatever I found first. “I was the Royals’ leading scorer this season. So we didn’t make the playoffs. Big deal. There’s always next year.” 
“Don’t you get it, Zack? There won’t be a next year if you don’t clean up your act.” 
I halted in my tracks. “What the fuck are you talking about?” 
After a pause, Greg sighed. “The owner of the Royals, he’s pissed. This isn’t the first time you’ve been in the press with this kind of crap. They’re seriously considering dropping you from the team. You’re in between contracts. Last night might’ve been the final straw. What’s going on, man? What happened to you? You used to be a fighter, the king of teamwork.” 
“Maybe I just don’t feel like I have anything left to fight for.” 
I gave up everything for hockey. I kept telling myself the injuries, the things I missed out on, would be worth it someday. Then, my parents were killed in a car accident last year. What’s the point of playing by the rules? What’s the point of anything? 
“Listen, Zack,” Greg said in a less angry tone. “I know you haven’t been yourself, but you’re going to have to help me out here. Do you want to call it quits?” 
“Fuck no. What the hell would I do with myself? Although, the thought of a long off-season isn’t the worst thing in the world. I can get out of the states and party abroad where no one knows me. Finally, have some damn fun.” 
“They’ve got paparazzi and camera phones abroad too. One more slip-up and I won’t be able to get you signed anywhere for next season.” 
“That’s not true. Last week you said the Warriors wanted me back.” 
“They rescinded their offer early this morning.” 
“Jesus Christ. Fucking assholes.” I grabbed a bottle of water and flopped on the sofa. “Okay, bro, I’m all ears. What do you suggest?” 
“Rehab. Now, before you curse me out, just listen. There’s a nice place in Malibu you could chill for a while until this blows over. It’ll show everyone you’re making an effort, then we can get you signed for next season.” 
“That’s a hard no. The prick that killed my parents was a drunk. I’m not like him. Hell, last night was practically the only serious partying I’d done all season.” 
“Well, I’ve got one more suggestion and you’re not going to like it.” 
“Then, I can hardly fucking wait, hit me.” 
Greg cleared his throat. “We rehab your image. I got a call from that show, The Stars of Ballroom, Marcus White had to pull out. He tore his Achilles.” 
“I’m going to stop you right there. There’s no fucking way I’m going on some goofy dance show.” 
“It’s not a goofy dance show,” Greg argued. “Marcus was an all-pro football player, a real athlete in his day. He said in some ways it was tougher than spring training.” 
“The answer is no. I can’t believe the producers would even want me. Isn’t it a family show?” 
“Yeah, a squeaky clean family show. And for the record, they didn’t contact me about you. They wanted Holmes, my other client. I had to talk them into you.” 
“You’re wasting your breath, man. The Stars of Ballroom is out. What other bright ideas have you got?” 
“That’s it, Zack. I got nothing else. Think of it this way, the first live show is a week from Friday and it only lasts six weeks. It’ll keep you out of trouble and in shape. I spoke to coach Gerard today. He told me if you do the show, he’ll personally go to the mat to keep you on the team. Think of the press, nothing but positive G-rated shit to get you out of this mess.” 
I rubbed my forehead, pissed that I found myself in this mess. Was there a way to make the best of it? “So, what do they do? Pair me up with a hot dancer? I do love a dancer’s body. What’s my partner look like?” “She’s pretty in a refined way, not the stripper way you’re thinking about. Which brings me to my next point. You can’t fuck your partner. It’ll ruin everything. Your relationship with her has to remain a hundred-percent professional.”

Today I killed a man I’ve always admired.

Super model fiancée, check.
Internet famous, check.
Bad boy rep, check.
Hate it all… double check.
I have worked toward the Championship since I was ten years old, doing whatever my publicist asked. I party with athletes, rock stars, models, actors, politicians— all the elite. When I walk into a room, people take notice and cheer.
But none of that makes me happy. Fame brought the followers, money, and a chance at a title, but it didn’t bring me the one thing I truly wanted. Angel.
So when she walks into my gym, a few weeks before the biggest fight of my life, I see an opportunity to show her the man behind the beast. Things don’t go as expected, though.
To get the girl, I accidentally murder a man.

Excerpt

Copyright 2020 @ Nancy Chastain

Waiting on my opponent to enter the ring, I bounce and punch to keep my muscles limber. This fight is the next step to becoming a champion, years of hard work validated by the big promotors with a win. This will launch my career to another level.

My opponent’s music starts, and I look in the direction he’s entering the ring. I catch a glimpse of a woman standing with her back to me, her dress sliding up her thigh as she bends to retrieve her bag from the floor, bright red ink peaks from under the hem of her form-fitting, yellow dress as it clings to her seductive curves, teasing me with a flash of what looks like a rose tattoo.

There is something familiar about her, if only she would turn around so I could see her face. I drag my attention away from the woman to concentrate on the task at hand: winning this fight.

“You have three five-minute rounds in this match, keep it clean. Touch gloves and come out swinging.” The referee tells us when he calls his fighters to the center of the ring.

The bell dings, and it’s time to go to work. The first-round ends with me connecting with a right, left, and an upper cut. My opponent falls to the mat, his head bouncing as it hits the floor. The referee begins to count him out. The crowd roars to life as I’m announced the Superlight Weight Champion.

I scan the crowd, trying to catch a look at the red head in the yellow dress. I push away from the reporters and make my way to the side of the ring. She’s gone; the chair where she had been is empty. I’m scouring the arena to no avail.
She vanished.

Kim Debois, my expensive, pain-in-the-ass publicist wiggles her finger in the air to get my attention. She’s done wonders for my publicity, but she is a force to be reckoned with. She walks up and shoves my pretend super model girlfriend, Amber Davis, into my arms.

Luckily, I see Amber falling in my direction and reach out to catch her in the nick of time. I may not like the girl, but I don’t want her to land flat on her face in front of all these people. I can’t stand the way Amber allows Kim to manipulate her and push her around to do her bidding. As if I could ever be with someone so weak.



 

About Nancy

I’m a wild child trapped inside a responsible adult. I found a release for my fun loving disobedient self-inside my characters. I love tequila, dragons, and wizards. I have a collection of the mythical creatures that decorate my office.


Finally allowing myself the time to go after a lifetime dream of writing. My characters are stubborn, strong, full of emotion and cuss like sailors. (Just like me.)

I’ve always had an interest in paranormal. Reading anything and everything I can on the subject of psychics and mediums. The theory that the average human only uses ten percent of their brain has always led to the question of; What could a person be capable of if they tapped into the other ninety percent?

I enjoy meeting new people and spending time with them discussing books. If you see me online or in person be sure and say hello.

“Last time I saw you, we didn’t leave it on the best terms…” 

“A bit of an understatement, I’d say.” 
“Yeah well. Someone told me that the best part about fighting was the makeup sex.” 
“Oh.” 
“Yeah. But we don’t do that.” 
“No, we don’t.” Although right now I was second guessing why the hell not. He was fucking adorable when he was nervous, and it wasn’t a side of him I saw very often. 
“But I didn’t think you should miss out, so…yeah. Batteries.” 
It took a second but then it hit me like a freight train. “You bought me batteries for my vibrator?” 
I laughed. 
I laughed so hard I snorted. And possibly peed a little bit. 
“It was dumb…” 
“It’s fucking genius.”
