Indy 500 champion Alex Moretti set the motor racing world abuzz when he proposed marriage to Amanda Cook right on the victory podium, following a tumultuous South Carolina trial clearing him of statutory rape, a charge that was made at the behest of Amanda’s vindictive father.

Substituting for his brother who was recovering from a serious racing accident, Alex prepares to make his first drive in Formula 1 when Amanda is suddenly found missing from their Amsterdam hotel. Foul play is immediately suspected and frustrated with Interpol’s progress, Amanda’s parents hire an unscrupulous former private detective, Cotton James, to find her.

An international mystery takes shape as James becomes strangely connected to the conspiracy involving Amanda’s vengeful sister and Alex’s teammate and erstwhile girlfriend, Evelyn Stevens. As the perpetrator keeps raising the ante, Alex’s father struggles to keep Moretti Motorsport together while Amanda’s family comes to grips with their never-ending personal infidelities.

Racer’s Fiancée is a tale of international intrigue, the dark underworld of human sex trafficking, and personal vendetta against the backdrop of international motor racing.   

Irina Balabanova is a beautiful Ukrainian girl, twenty-seven years of age and heartbroken, abandoned by an American post-graduate teacher who had worked in her country as an intern. Fending off the unwanted advances of locals and co-workers, she reluctantly agrees to a chance meeting with John Masters, a middle-aged American businessman, stranded in pre-war eastern Ukraine following an ill-advised romantic venture. Despite their wide differences of culture, language, and generation, the two are brought together in a whirlwind of love and adventure.

Their dreams of a life together are threatened by the acts of a fanatically jealous Ukrainian State Security officer, who will stop at nothing to stop Irina from leaving their native country to marry an American. When all hope seems totally lost to the point of both facing criminal persecution, John’s perseverance and some ever-present divine intervention keep the unlikely and miraculous romance alive.

Inspired by actual events, Miracle From Ukraine is a story of international intrigue, faith, and romance.

Sprinting Towards Destiny: Unveiling the Thrills of ‘The Race Girl . Third-generation championship caliber racer Alex Moretti drives for his father, Andy, a motorsport legend and now expanding team owner. The team had seemed to hit a grand slam when landing a lucrative multi-year sponsorship with Unibank, a major banking institution based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Just when Moretti Motorsport was advancing toward super team status, the sponsorship relationship explodes when young Alex is involved in a serious car accident, injuring the bank CEO’s youngest teenage daughter, Amanda, who is suddenly comatose in a Las Vegas hospital and aborting a six-to-seven-week pregnancy.

Released from the team, Alex spends two years in motorsport exile while Amanda’s father is hellbent on destroying the Morettis, threatening Andy with a multi-million dollar lawsuit and pushing criminal charges against his son, who now traveled the world for any free-lance ride in a race car he could muster.

When Alex finally gets a chance to resurrect his career, Amanda is pressured to testify against him following new inculpatory evidence from their past relations. As both push back against their feuding fathers, their forbidden romance is forced to a climax while playing out in the courts, the press, and in the corporate suites and backstretch of the world’s largest motor race.

A Big Apple serial killer who preys on young Asian women has eluded capture for years. The NYPD, the FBI, and even the Russian mafia are all after him. But he is a brilliant software programmer and is being mysteriously protected by the White House, even though a patriotic FBI Director refuses to play ball.

As the sitting US President plans to promote her plan for a permanent Middle East Peace Accord to drive her re-election, the young and clever killer threatens to derail everything and bring down the entire administration.

The Programmer is a tale of high crime, political treachery, and international conspiracy.

Extremely entertaining and intriguing tale as I found myself filling Amanda’s shoes and falling in love with Alex and getting angry with him as I read. The characters were all well defined, particularly the old southern lawyer. I just lived his courtroom antics. The book is very well-written and I cannot wait for the sequel.

One of the book’s strengths lies in the author’s ability to create relatable and engaging characters. Both Irina and John are portrayed with depth, allowing readers to connect with their hopes, doubts, and aspirations. The introduction of supporting characters, such as Irina’s family and the enigmatic Colonel Kuznetsov, adds further complexity to the narrative, weaving a web of intrigue and suspense.

Harrison masterfully incorporates cultural differences and the complexities of international relationships into the story, adding layers of realism and believability. The exploration of Irina’s background, her family dynamics, and the challenges she faces with the SSU investigation provide a rich cultural backdrop, shedding light on the complexities of Ukrainian society.
