Race for Love by Nana Malone(The Donovans #3)
Publication date: July 27th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Up and coming racecar driver, Kisima Jennings, is all alone in the world and that’s just how she likes it. After all, she has her career, who needs family? But when a near-fatal crash jeopardizes her future, she’s forced to lean on someone for the first time in her life.
As an athletic trainer, Derek Donovan is driven and has always kept his eyes on the prize, never letting personal entanglements come between him and his dream of becoming a head trainer for the New Orleans Jaguars. That is, until one misstep costs him everything. Now he’s starting over, but with a client as tempting as Kisima, is he destined to repeat the mistakes of his past? Or will letting someone close bring him everything he’s ever wanted?
Welcome to What to Read Wednesday! I’m excited to have you here. Tell us five things about you the person, not the author.
Oh I’m just your average Ghanaian/American girl who lives in sunny San Diego with an American husband who thinks my family is crazy. My Big Fat Greek Wedding has nothing on us. In my infinite spare time, I chase around my two year old trying to tame her wild mane of hair, try and corral my spunky Scottie and occasionally let my hubby pamper me.
Tell us your favorite comfort food?
Plantain. Pretty much any way you can make it but it’s my favorite thing in the world. In Ghana we have a version called Kelewele. Super ripe plantain cut into tiny pieces and spiced with pepper and ginger and garlic and deep friend. OMG, makes me homesick.
If you ruled your own country, what would be the first law you’d put into effect?
First law, all men must do the dishes. Anyone who makes over a million in salary, must “adopt” a family living in poverty and bring them to middle income.
What genre (s) do you write?
Paranormal Romance, Multicultural Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance
What are the first 3 sentences of your book?
Derek Donovan shoved his hands in his pockets and leaned up against the far wall in Kallie Wintor's sun-lit penthouse apartment overlooking the French Quarter. The building only had seven floors, but the view was spectacular. He'd expected some dramatics but the venom in her voice was unexpected.
What’s the hardest part of the writing process for you? The easiest?
Edits. Anyone who knows me knows I hate to edit. In my brain the story is done. (Even though it’s not) The first flush of the story idea. I have ideas ying yang. Just need the cloning machine to write them all. Lol.
Describe your writing space.
Space? Ha! Anywhere I can have access to Drop Box and can get ten minutes to write. With a five year old, you find your time when you can.
What’s the easiest part of a book to write for you…the beginning, middle or end?
The meet. I can always see it in my head. It’s almost always the moment I think about first.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on the next Donovans books. I’m also working on the next In Stilettos books. And as always a novella here, a side project there.
Do you have one piece of advice you’d share with a newbie author?
Listen to your gut. You know best for your story.
And finally, where can we find you and your book(s)?
Thank you so much for having me!
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
