“A stunning debut!”
The heart of change is the change of heart.Life is about never-ending choices. Yet some people never have the courage to choose change.CJ Fallon has struggled with a family that she’s never quite fit into and a negative body image poisoned by her toxic, emotionally-distant mother. CJ’s mom finds fault with every choice CJ has made in her 27 young years. From earning her degrees; to climbing the corporate ladder; to her love of competing in Ironman triathlons; it’s all been one mistake after another according to CJ’s mother.And now that CJ has won her ‘age group’ in an Ironman race as an amateur, she’s on the radar of the world’s athletic elite. Nick Madison, a former Tour-de-France star and coach of an up-and-coming Ironman team, wants her to join his outfit and become a professional. A real pro!CJ struggles with her decision but once she commits to something, there’s no turning back, even as she fights her attraction to her sexy and charismatic new coach.PASSION’S SPIRIT – ABOUT:
Life is about the risks we take and the courage we display. For Natalie Walsh, switching from orthopedics to sports medicine lands her a job with team Fear US and Fear US2 setting her on a journey toward her true destiny.
She’s a lone-wolf runner extraordinaire who’s running from her past and searching for her proper place in this world. The annual team trip to Guam allows her to put the most distance between herself and her troubles, but places her face-to-face with the one person who challenges her ability to trust.
Mike Dawson, owner of the resort where the team stays, is known as the island’s surfer-dude playboy. He’s happy to show the beautiful tourists a good time, because he’s all about the short-term. No risk. No commitment. He vows to help the buttoned-up doctor relax and learn what island life is all about.
Even with spiritual forces at work, she still believes running will keep her safe. Physically. Emotionally. And though Mike continues to fight the magnetic pull, he’s more drawn to her each day.
For these two, things are not always as they appear, but will they listen to the Universe and have the courage to change for a better tomorrow?
