Racing Savannah: Exclusive Excerpt

Miranda Kenneally

Racing Savannah by Miranda KenneallyThey're from two different worlds.

He lives in the estate house, and she spends most of her time in the stables helping her father train horses. In fact, Savannah has always been much more comfortable around horses than boys. Especially boys like Jack Goodwin—cocky, popular and completely out of her league. She knows the rules: no mixing between the staff and the Goodwin family. But Jack has no such boundaries.

With her dream of becoming a jockey, Savannah isn't exactly one to follow the rules either. She's not going to let someone tell her a girl isn't tough enough to race. Sure, it's dangerous. Then again, so is dating Jack...

Get a sneak peek of Miranda Kenneally's Racing Savannah (available December 3, 2013) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

I hustle over to the Whitfields’ barn, my heels getting stuck in muddy divots. I follow the sounds of crying and barking, which I can barely hear over the band’s music ringing across the countryside.

I find the dogs in a nest behind a toolbox, and when I see them nursing from the mama dog, I let out a low squeal. “Oh my gosh, you’re so cute.”

Not even a minute later, Jack appears in the barn doorway. He stops to light a lantern and carries it toward me. I instinctively take a step back then stop.

I swallow. “You actually came.”

Author Miranda Kenneally on When Friends Fall in Love

Stealing Parker by Miranda KenneallyToday Heroes and Heartbreakers welcomes author Miranda Kenneally, whose Catching Jordan and new release, Stealing Parker, out now, both feature strong friendships that just might lead to more... A fan of Friends to Lovers as a reader as well, Miranda's here to share her thoughts on and favorite examples of the trope. Thanks, Miranda!

(Be sure to stick around 'til the very end of the post to learn how to enter for a chance to win a copy of Stealing Parker!)

Several years ago, my boyfriend (now husband) asked me to go out on a double date with his friends. We loaded up in his friend’s car, and five minutes down the road, I became terribly ill and got sick in a Dunkin Donuts parking lot. (Sorry… too much info, I imagine.) Anyhow – my husband stuck with me, and so did his friends!

The best relationships are built on friendship… I think all of us are a little bit in love with the idea of falling for a friend. Friends see us at our best and our worst—They see us laugh when we’re watching funny movies together. They see us cry. And yes, they see us get sick.

I think readers enjoy stories where friends fall in love because we all hope we’ll find true love. I bet that everyone has had a crush on a friend at some point, and sometimes the friendship becomes more, but sometimes it doesn’t.

[How do you know when it's right?...]
