Celeste canít believe it. She is engaged again. This makes the third time and she is giving the ring back to Craig. She doesnít love Craig. She didnít tell him no because he informed her at the country club in front of her parents. Oh, her dad was very happy about it as it seems Craig can help him in his political career.


Celeste doesnít work for a living but she does volunteer at various places all over New York. One of them is giving private tours at the museum, which is where she was headed right after she eats breakfast with her friend Jackie. It seems there is a celebrity in the midst, Beau Lansing, NASCAR driver. She knows she is in trouble and must leave before he sees her.


Beau came to New York to bring Celeste back to Daytona Beach with him. He has some very private business that deals with Celeste and she is the only one who can help him. He isnít sure that she will but he is determined to make sure she does. It is a matter of life or death for a very dear friend of his, Travis.


Celeste reluctantly agrees to go with Beau, it is exactly what she needs, escaping her life for a little while and trying to find out what she really wants and seeing if she can really help Travis. It seems that Cece is now a part of the Chastaine racing team, as the Sponsor Liaison. Travis doesnít know who she is and that is how she wants to keep it, she wants to be around him before she can make her decision.


It seems that more forces are at work besides Cece getting to know Travis. We have Beauís fan club and one woman in particular after him, even though she is married. Someone is out to stop Cece for good. Someone is following her around from track to track and threatening her even in the motor coach she shares with Beau.


Can the stalker be stopped before it is too late? What about the attraction between Cece and Beau, will all the traveling and the close quarters bring them closer together? What about the secret that was hidden for years and that no one wants to come to life after all these years? What will be the outcome for Cece regarding Travis?


Ms. St. Claire has given us another marvelous story. The story is as fast-paced at times as the speed on the track and will keep you wondering just who is endangering Cece and just when Cece and Beau will finally stop fighting their feelings for each other. Killer Curves gives us some of the behind the scenes activities and the feeling of family with the drivers and their families. It shows that even though they might be enemies on the track, they are friends off the track. If you are a fan of NASCAR you will love this story, I know I did.
