She’s sworn to protect…

But does that include a speeding celebrity?

Violet Hawks is a by-the-books police officer—so when she catches a man speeding, she arrests him. Only, the man is famous race car driver Josh Stevens. To make amends, Josh launches a charm campaign, and it works on the small town…and on Violet. But when Josh is connected to an investigation, Violet begins to wonder—can she trust her instincts when her heart is involved?

Guest Post by Author Catherine Lanigan

I have always been fascinated by cars. A great deal of that interest, delight and awe, comes from the fact that I AM from Indiana. Historically, Indiana was the birthplace of many of the first automobiles being manufactured in the United States. Long before there was The Motor City of Detroit, there was Studebaker in South Bend and the Duesenberg in Indianapolis. The Austin. The Cord. These were history makers.

In my hometown, La Porte, Indiana, in early June we have “Cruise Night”.  There are so many antique car owners around here that they traditionally, parade up and down the Main Street in town for several hours. The side streets are blocked off and we all stand around and see the refurbished old cars and trucks, which have been warehoused all winter; cleaned, waxed and lovingly restored some more. It’s so fun to see cars from the 1920’s to the muscle cars of the early 70’s and the drag racing cars of the 1950’s.

And from the early days, the cars were tested on the race track. That race track is the Indianapolis 500. My editor and publisher wouldn’t let me “say” Indianapolis 500, we had to use “the race”, but I am assuming everyone will get the idea.

I first introduced this world of antique cars and their collectors in KATIA’S PROMISE. I brought Austin McCreary back in HERS TO PROTECT as Josh Stevens’ friend. Josh is an international Formula One driver. He’s famous, rich and a bit arrogant when the story begins.
Josh has everything, it appears, except happiness. Though it’s been decades, he’s still grieving over his parents’ death.  When Violet Hawks, young rookie cop with her heart set on becoming detective, pulls him over in his ultra expensive and luxurious Bugatti Chiron, for speeding, neither of them are prepared for the antagonism they create in each other. As career focused at Violet is on the drug lord her detective team is hoping to bring down, she finds that Josh’s charming smile and enthusiasm for her town, is a cover for the lonely man he really is.

Violet is blessed with a large, loving family who care about each other and their community. When Josh spends time with her, his heart learns to trust.  But love is another issue all together.
