Hearts Race - Anneka Ever - New Release





Blurb

When it comes to adventure, she’s stop and he’s go. When it comes to romance, he’s yes and she’s no.

Can billionaire Dylan Delaney overcome his adrenaline addiction with life coach Greta Larsen’s help before he loses his technology empire? Can she move past the death of her husband to find love again?

When Greta finds herself attracted to her very rich, very handsome new client, she sees it as a betrayal of her late husband. Despite her feelings of guilt, she can’t walk away from Dylan, especially when she learns he harbors his own grief.

His secret sorrow is the key to Dylan’s love of danger. Greta is determined to unlock his mysterious past so he’ll stop courting death. What she doesn’t count on is the passion she frees.

Dylan’s never met a woman who could slow him down. Until now. Greta teaches him to be mindful of the moment, but soon his every moment is filled with thoughts of her. Has he replaced one addiction with another?


Hearts Race is the follow-up story to Riverswept and the second book in the Burns Class of Love series. The story returns readers to the small town of Burns, Virginia and also introduces them to the Blue Ridge Mountains around Charlottesville, Virginia.


Excerpt

She sat in an overstuffed chair and rested the water bottle on her knee. “I’m glad we crossed paths. Ben said it would be hard to get scheduled time with you. He suggested I take any opportunity that presents itself. Now seems as good a time as any.”

Dylan had dreaded this moment and now it was here. He dropped onto the couch and extended his legs. “A good time to do what?”

“The easiest thing we can start with.” Her wedding ring flashed as she swept her hand out before her. 

“This place is perfect because it seems distraction-free.”

“Perfect for what?”

“Your first lesson in mindfulness. We’re going to do some mindful meditation.”

Sounds like a bunch of hippie dippy hooey, he thought. He must have made a face because she frowned at him. “You look skeptical,” she said.

“Meditation. I don’t know. Don’t you have to be a Buddhist or something?”

She shook her head. Her hair fell across her eyes and she shoved it behind her ears. “No. All kinds of people meditate and there are different types of meditation.” She rose and walked to the wall. She switched off the overhead light. The inside lamps and outside lights were enough to light the room with a gentle glow. “That’s better. Now we have an environment more conducive to meditation.”

“So, are you going to hypnotize me or something?”

Greta laughed. “No. This is a technique you’ll be able to use to work on being in the moment.”

“In the moment?”

“Yes. Ben told me that you tend to be thinking ahead to what you’d like to be doing, rather than focusing on what you’re doing at the moment. That’s one of the reasons you get so antsy in meetings and are easily distracted.” Dylan realized she was referring to her job interview.

“So what will this meditation thing do?”

“This should help you learn to be present in the moment, no matter what’s happening.” She reached toward him with one hand and said, “Give it to me.”

“What?”

“You know what. The phone.”
