Now that Trey's dad is dead after a fight between Cardin's
father and grandfather and now Cardin's parents are

their problems. She convinces Trey to pose as her fiancé,
Trey only agrees because he wants to know why their family
had been fighting.
A LONG, HARD RIDE is part of Harlequin Blazes 0-60 Series.
It's one of my favorites so far. The relationship Alison
Kent develops between Trey and Cardin is magical. The two
have known each other, ran in the same circles, but never
really had a conversation until later in life. The
chemistry is undeniable and burns up the pages. Both
Cardin and Trey have their own agenda, but they find
themselves falling in love with one another, but can either
of them give up their lives for the other? And how will
Cardin's family react to their "engagement"? Will they
still want each other once Trey learns a dark secret about
Jeb, Cardin's grandfather? Kent has weaved a story so rare
and so true to the heart and to the characters. It's a
very erotic tale, but is different than any normal erotic
romance. The hero and heroine are the only ones together.
Cardin Worth is ready to tune up her engine—with Trey, her
former crush! However, he's a Davis—one of her car-racing
family's bitter rivals. But she might be able to create
peace, and also get some sizzling sex on the side...
…if Trey pretends to be her fiancé, that is!
Having a little fun on those steamy Southern nights seems
like a great idea. Just to patch up the feud, of course.
Then Trey'll be leaving town again—this time for good.
But Cardin's not sure she can relinquish the superheated
sex…because Trey's the most talented, uh, mechanic to ever
look under her hood!
