Tori Chazov isn't exactly the girl next door. For one, if the neighbors found out she's an FBI asset and the daughter of a KGB defector, she'd have to grab her go bag and run. Then there's her day job: making magic happen under the hood of big beautiful muscle cars. She's more likely to be wearing engine grease than mascara, and most guys don't fantasize about their mechanics.
But then most girls don't fantasize about FBI tech geniuses, either, and Tori has it bad for Emery Martin. Emery has a past. She can see it in the way he keeps his body honed like a weapon, in the mysterious scars under his snap-button shirts. She can see it in the way his eyes follow her around the room, even though he never says a word.
He's going to have to start talking now, though. A vicious Russian hit squad is on the way to Miami to take Tori out for good. And without Emery's help, she might not make her last great escape . . .

An FBI agent falls for one of his team members, who has an assassin hot on her trail, in Bristol’s smart second Hot Rides contemporary romantic thriller (after Drive). Emery Martin is leading a team of undercover operatives working as mechanics at Classic Rides, a muscle-car restoration garage in Miami. After completing the primary objective of bringing in a major player in the Miami drug market, Emery believes that their mission is almost complete. Then he learns that there is a hit out on two members of his team, Tori and Roni Chazov, daughters of a KGB spy who became a U.S. informant. Roni is out of town, but Tori and Emery must frequently change locations to keep the assassins off their trail, and their mutual attraction ignites into one night of intense passion. Emery can’t get Tori out of his system, and he must do all he can to protect her before the assassins find them. The suspense is as captivating as the romance, with plenty of surprising twists and turns along the way to the satisfying conclusion. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency. (Aug.)
