Celebrating The Release Of Erin McCarthy's New Fast Track Novel - THE CHASE

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we are celebrating the release of the fourth book in Erin McCarthy's ongoing Fast Track series - THE CHASE!!

NYTimes bestselling author Erin McCarthy sold her first book to Kensington Brava through author Lori Foster's website contest in 2002, much to her continued amazement. Thirty-something books later, Erin is entertaining both Brava and Berkley readers with her sassy, sexy tales of contemporary and paranormal romance. Her Las Vegas Vampires series debuted in August 2006, with HIGH STAKES hitting #1 on the B & N trade romance list. Erin also writes dark paranormal in her Seven Deadly Sins series and paranormal young adult novels under the name Erin Lynn.


THE CHASE - A Fast Track Novel by Erin McCarthy

Kendall Holbrook is determined to make it to the top, even with the challenge of being a woman on the male-dominated racing circuit. She doesn't have time for romance - especially not with racing rival Evan Monroe, the man who nearly crushed her dreams years ago. Forced into meeting up with him, Kendall is experiencing all those old feelings again - and she can't deny that they still have more than enough chemistry to set fire to the track.

After getting dropped by his biggest sponsor, Evan is watching his racing season go up in flames. Now, the only replacement available is completely humiliating: a co-sponsorship for his-and-her deodorant with Kendall Holbrook - the girl who once broke his heart. Acting like Kendall doesn't still get him all hot and bothered is bad enough, but the biggest challenge awaits him on the track - where Evan has to decide if a second chance at love is more important than making it to the finish line...

  3. Hi Erin!
    congrats on your newest release - I absolutely love your Las Vegas Vampires series, but I haven't read your new series yet... have to change that soon, because I've heard fantastic things about it!! a friend loves those books and she is telling me for quite a time now that I have to read them *g*
    and I didn't know you're writing another series (I definitively have to check it out) - is it difficult to switch between the genres?
    wish you all the best, Ina

  4. Are you a racing fan?

  5. Erin,

    Since you are writing about racing, I'm going to assume that you know a little something about NASCAR.

    My question: Who is your favorite NASCAR, Sprint Cup Racing, driver?

    Go Tony!

  6. Hi Erin!
    Have you ever been behind the wheel of a racecar?

  7. Have any drivers or their representatives contacted you thinking that one of your characters was based on them?

  8. Obviously, winning Lori Foster's contest was no fluke. What a neat way to start a writing career! I would love to read this story. I have a couple of stories with racing as the setting. I have enjoyed them. Thanks for the contest!

  9. Hi Erin i love your books especially Mouth to Mouth :)
    Do you enjoy racing yourself or just write about it because it makes a good book?

  10. Congrats on the release. Enjoyed the excerpt, sounds like a fun and sexy read.

  12. Hi Erin, I'm so excited to read the 4th installment in the Fast Track series! Will any upcoming installments include updates as to the prior characters' lives? (ie. Imgen/Ty and Susan/Ryder, etc)

  15. Hello Erin!
    Congratulations on your new release! I really enjoy romances where the couple starts out as adversaries or rivals. I like the conflict between them because it always creates sparks. The fact that they used to be an item is even better. It sounds like a great read!

  22. I've been reading your Deadly Sins series. It's excellent. I haven't tried the Hot Track series yet. How hard is it to write different series concurrently? Do you do it to keep your writing fresh?

  23. COngrats! I have not read any of your books yet but sounds like I need to give them a go! Best of luck!
