Comedy, murder, mayhem and mystery, set against the backdrop of a national racing circuit. When an otherwise healthy Big Ed Corbett drops over dead, it's left to his niece, Desi, and his driver, Brandon Turner, to pick up the reins of his racing empire and fulfill Big Ed's dream of a national championship.
But, there's someone determined to see Desi and Brandon fail and it's going to take all the speed they can muster to find out just who. Is it Eula Jean, the not-so-bereaved widow, who goes through men faster than the speed of light? Or is it Beau Stevens, the champ whose biggest desire is to see Brandon fail and sees Desi as the latest notch on his gear shift? Or is it that mysterious mountain of a man who seems to be following Desi wherever she goes?
The flag's dropped, the race is on...will the Grim Reaper take the checkered flag as well as the daring duo of Desi and Brandon?
A runaway casket races past an open grease pit and plows into a fully-loaded buffet table .... Leta Nolan Childers is at it again, this time with a mysterious romantic comedy set in the world of Nascar racing. When Big Ed Corbett suddenly drops dead of a heart attack and leaves Corbett Conquers Racing to his niece, Desi, and Brandon Turner, the young man he has groomed to be his driver and heir apparent, neither is pleased. There are conditions to their shared inheritance - if they don't win the championship trophy, Corbett Conquers will be sold and the proceeds will go to Ed's widow, Eula Jean. Desi has always resented Brandon. She wanted to be the one at her uncle's side. Now that she's actually at the track, she's not about to back off and let Brandon run the show. Especially not when she knows more about what's actually going on than he does. Recommended. mm--Romantic Notions--http://romanticnotions.com

"Suspense and sexual tension expertly mixed with the high octane world of racing cars -- SPEED OF LOVE is a fast-paced, heart pounding read."--Karin Huxman, ENTANGLED.
This book combines humour, mystery and romance in a superbly written story. Rating **** Sandy Cummins, Editor/Webmaster Writers Exchange Ezine
With "Speed into Love", Leta Nolan Childers has created a novel with a delightful blend of romance, murder, and mayhem. Lead characters Brandon and Desi are adversaries in the best sense of the word and each can hold their own in their pursuit of love and the happily ever after. Peopled with secondary characters both chilling and laughable, this story will stay with you long after the last page is turned. I highly recommend it for pure fun, drama, and the joy of being around the car racing institution. Holly Lynne Rose, author of "The Scent of Orchids"
