Release day: Drive Me to Distraction

1 November 2012

Today is the official release of Drive Me to Distraction by Caitlyn Nicholas (ebook, Momentum). Here’s the blurb:

Sometimes life or death decisions are easy. Alex Radford has a choice – borrow the money to treat her mother’s rare and aggressive cancer from sleazy moneylender Hamish MacCameron. Or do nothing and watch her die.

MacCameron has an agenda. He wants Alex in his bed, and he wants her to help him exact revenge on his sworn enemy, Robert Dryden. He is only too happy to lend her what she needs, but the strings attached form a tangled web from which Alex has little hope of escape.

It’s not all bad. Since she was a girl Alex has had one dream: to become a Formula 1 driver and show the boys how to drive a race car. MacCameron’s money gives her a shot at fame, and in a move that scandalizes the F1 racing fraternity she becomes the new driver for Rob Dryden’s struggling F1 team, Prometheus.

Alex tries to keep her distance from Rob, knowing that one day she will need to betray one of the few people who ever had faith in her. But things begin to unravel when Hamish MacCameron is murdered and she and Rob are the top suspects on the list …

Caitlyn dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Six years ago I had a dream. To write a book and have it published in Australia. So I wrote a book. But it ended up being published in the USA. So I wrote another book and another. Things changed. The publishing industry embraced the digital era, and in early 2012 Pan Macmillian announced its new Aussie based digital imprint, Momentum. I submitted one of my books to Momentum right away and was beyond thrilled when they jumped at the chance to publish it. So here it is, dear readers. My first novel to be published in Australia. It’s fun, fast and fabulous, and the fulfilment of a dream that’s been a few years coming.

You can find out more about Caitlyn at her website or blog and buy the book at Amazon or iTunes.

All ARRA members who comment on this post will go in the draw to win a copy of this book.  Giveaway closes 21 November. (The winner was Lyn)
