Racing Heart by June Moonbridge
Release Date: 1st July 2015
Publisher: Safkhet Soul
Genres: Romance / Contemporary Fiction

Desiree Hart in desperate search for her kidnapped son, does everything in her power possible to find him. Due to a letter she receives after official search was closed, she changes everything; her appearance, her hometown and even her name.

When she meets Lorcan Shore, the Five Times F1 World Campion, their encounter is everything but ordinary. Out of pure fear for her life, she loses her temper and spits over everything he is absolutely certain he can do the best; how to drive.

Leaving him alone on Grand Corniche she is certain she would never see him again. But the next morning proves her being totally wrong. He was no quitter and no matter how she tries to run and hide, her heart desires at the end come back to the surface…

Will the man of her dreams be able to fulfil them all? Including the most important will he help her find her missing son?

I was extremely lucky to be one of the first people to read this book long before it was published and I feel honoured that the author trusted me with it. In Racing Heart our main character Desiree Hart is a complex and secretive woman. She has had her heart broken in the most unimaginable way possible.............her child has been stolen. Desiree has tried to rebuild her life with a new identity but at the forefront of all she does is her frantic search for the little boy who was cruelly taken away from her. The last thing she needs is an added complication in her life in the form of a gorgeous racing car driver Lorcan Shore. Despite her attempts to build barriers around her heart, Lorcan is persistent in his pursuit of her.

June Moonbridge has created an interesting background to Desiree who has so many elements to her life and personality. She is outwardly strong, independent and a no nonsense person but it is obvious that the grief that comes from missing her son is slowly destroying her. June Moonbridge is clearly knowledgeable in all aspects of the Formula One Circuit and I found glimpses into this crazy way of life and the playboy millionaire lifestyles associated with it very interesting.  The over-riding message conveyed in the book is that you really cannot race away from your past as it always catches you up. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more from June Moonbridge.

The person behind the name of June Moonbridge, has many names and many faces too. Although living in the same area, she was born and raised in one country  and now living in another.
She studied economics, and quickly realised she hated it. Afterwards, she found herself working in mainly male businesses; at first in automotive and later - steel products productions. She can choose for you the best steel you need, but don't, please don't, ask her which lipstick to use.
She started to write in her high school and was negatively criticised by her teacher. Stubborn as she is that didn't stop her. Under different pen names for her stories she tried to get some independent opinions, which came back as good reviews in magazines and later she published three books.
Giving birth to two children, and learning that her second child has Autism, she married the father of them and continued to work. All that together took all of her free time. But the desire to write didn't die. When life somehow sorted itself out, she decided to write her novel in English and her first submission to Safkhet was rejected… 
For what happened later… read third paragraph, second sentence.
