Intro to Moving Too Fast
From Author Helen Conrad

“Winning isn’t everything-it’s the only thing.”

Injured racecar driver Grant Carrington lives by those words and Carrie Harlow is afraid he’ll end up dying by them. She resists him at first, instinctively seeing that he’s dangerous to know. He needs her skill as a physical therapist, and she lives to heal. But he lives to win. That puts them at odds right from the beginning.

Grant is probably the hardest hero I’ve ever written. He puts on a gruff, rough shell to protect himself from the vulnerability he feels after being injured. His past is littered with old emotional pain and a history that makes him think he doesn’t deserve to be loved by a woman as good and loveable as Carrie. It takes patience and courage for her to work with him—but she heals his heart at the same time she heals his body, and in the end, he realizes that accepting and giving love makes him the biggest winner of all.

I hope you enjoy these books—and be on the lookout for the next three which will be released soon!

Moving Too Fast
Destiny Bay Romances - Forever Yours
(Sweet Edition #3)
by Helen Conrad
Adult Romance
Paperback & Ebook, 165 pages
March 28th 2014 by Doorknock Publishing

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!"

My Review:
I loved that these books were "cleaned up" so that a larger audience could read them. The author has created a great series with characters that could be my neighbors. The Carringtons are definitely sought after men. The cast of characters in the beginning of the book helped me keep track of who was who. Since this is book 3, I am sad to see the books come to an end. However I did really like the end and I have hope that there will be from these characters. I liked the recipe at the end and I cannot wait to try it out. My favorite part was how the siblings all got along, even with the in laws. Destiny Bay is full of fun and interesting characters. I would love to visit there. Carrie and Grant have to find themselves before they can decide if they are right for each other. I am giving this book a 3/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
