Wheeler Series Book 3
It’s the start of a new year for World Champion cyclist Loren Mackenzie and already,
her luck has taken a nosedive. Tensions rise at training camp in
Mallorca, Spain, with the arrival of team sponsor, Ryzak Sports.
There’s something familiar about Maksim Ryzak’s charm, and while
Loren can see through it, she can’t shake the attraction.
Fingers are pointed at Loren when a reporter hints at her involvement in a doping scheme
allegedly begun by Felix Lalonde. She denies it, but her fears that
no one will believe her drag her down. When pictures of Graham with
another woman are published by the tabloids, a match ignites that
could burn their relationship to the ground.
The Spring Classics begin with races in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Italy, where rivals
become allies and friends become adversaries. Loren is tested in both
mind and body, but she is determined to prove herself worthy of being
a World Champion.
But, as one fire is put out, another takes its place. Loren is still haunted by Felix,
and it’s his voice in her ear in competition, whispering she’s
not good enough. Even with her friends and family rallying behind
her, can Loren free herself once and for all?
