A sweet old-fashioned girl

isn’t what Grant Carrington is looking for. A man who lives for speed and danger, he’s only slowed down because he’s been forced to by an injury. Carrie Harlow isn’t his type, but he needs her in order to heal. She knows she’s playing with fire, but she feels she can help him and she goes for it—even though she knows she’s endangering her own heart as she fixes his.

Recipe for Carrie's Chicken Picatta included.

Purchase from Amazon.

A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"

Here's an Excerpt from Moving Too Fast:

“You’ll have to accept it, Carrie.” His voice was rough, but gentle. “I don’t know who I am when I’m not racing. I need it. I have to go. And I may never be back.”

She was living her own worst nightmare. “I can’t accept that,” she repeated.

He stepped back. “Then I guess it’s over.” He didn’t really believe that. He waited for her to do or say something that would change everything.

But she didn’t. With the last shreds of her dignity she turned away. “Yes.” She wouldn’t let him touch her again. “This is it.”

He couldn’t bear to see her like this, but he couldn’t give in. She was asking him to change his life completely, and he couldn’t do that. Maybe if he gave her some time to think it over, she’d come to her senses.

“I’ve got to go into town,” he said gruffly. “I’ll talk to you later.”

She shook her head slowly. “No,” she whispered, staring out the window. “I won’t be here.”

For a moment he stood helpless. Finally he turned away. She watched him walk to the car through a misty haze of tears. He got in and started the engine, and she bit her lip, thinking of the dangerous machine he would soon be driving at speeds of over two hundred miles an hour. The tears spilled down her cheeks. She could barely make out his form any longer. But she could feel him, hear him, smell him. How was she going to live without him?
