What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.

Title: Alex’s Destiny
Author: Amy Gregory 
Publisher: Self
Length: 243 pgs (print edition)

Blurb:

Her destiny was written for her, long before she was ever born. She embraced it, wanting nothing more than to give everything within her back to the sport in which she was con- sidered royalty. Her family’s legacy would live on, revered by all. And she thrived on the long work days she spent teach- ing at the academy her blood was tied to. Alexandra Sterling needed that dirt track as much as she needed her next breath. That same track was the one that drew in a young student years before. Alex had given her heart away the day they met, knowing that he belonged to only her. For years she’d waited, knowing without a single doubt that he’d make her his when the time was right.

But…she’d never asked Dallas if he felt the same way.

Her hurt leaves her vulnerable, her days dark and her in- stincts dulled. After one night of hell, Alex is lost. Her world is crumbling around her, and without her lifeline and best friend beside her anymore, there’s nothing to keep her from

Dallas Hunter is a pro rider on the motocross circuit, following in the footsteps of his father Eli. For Dallas, it’s always been Alex, but he’s kept his feelings locked away out of fear, his love for their family, his biggest obstacle. One short and chilling phone call to her puts him on high alert. Knowing something is terribly wrong sends him racing across the country, back home, back to her. But what he finds almost kills him.

Now he’s watching her slip away right before his very eyes. Figuring out how to help Alex before it’s too late, might turn out to be harder than any race he’s ever ridden. And he has to do it with his team and sponsors screaming at him from the other side, trying to pull him back to the world he’s dedicated his entire life to. Dallas knows he has to help his best friend, the woman he loves…and do it without tearing his family apart.

Excerpt


Years of roaming every inch of the Noland property left an intricately detailed map ingrained in her head, memorized for life. Instead, she stayed, not wanting to be rude to her family. As she stood there, the sun gave way to the moon. The dark purple lining the horizon was the only evidence it left behind. She couldnt help but feel her heart break. Not the earth-shattering pain of a sudden loss, or that at the mercy of death, but a slow, piece-by-painful piece kind of heartache.

The kind where emotions whirled around inside her, at war with one another. Feeling stupid, desperate, and confused, she tried to remember when she knew. There wasnt some crystal clear moment. Not a black and white answer. Dallas had just always been hers. She never questioned it, never saw their ages as an obstacle, and until this week, she didnt think he had either. Alex just knew Dallas would wait for her.

That was what hurt the most. Well, two things actually. Being wrong—and being empty.
For the first time she felt hollow and questioned her entire path. Her foot slipped, landing hard on the ground below the fence. She shook her head and closed her eyes. It was supposed to be Dallas. He would retire from rac- ing and join the staff of the academy.

They were supposed to have the big white wedding. Theyd spend their years teaching side-by-side as the fairy tale ending lived on around them.

Thered been no question in her mind over the years. All she knew was there wasnt supposed to be a different woman in her spot by his side. Feeling the sting, she screwed her eyes tighter then swiped at the tears that fell, despite her best effort to prevent them.

The hand on her lower back made her flinch in surprise. Shed been so lost in her own world she hadnt heard him approach. Without a word, she knew the scent, the hold was one shed felt a million and one times. 

Dallas.

She tried to be angry, to hold onto the feelings that made her flee the house in the first place. She couldnt. 

Ahis touch, even through clothing, his warmth melted the ice in her veins that quickly formed during the last few minutes of solitude. Another tearanother swipe at it.

Alex.

She didnt answer, instead she shifted her cheek to rest the opposite direction to avoid him. Alex, talk to me. Please.

Suddenly his touch burned her, seared her. Jerking away from the source of pain left her standing face-to-face with him.

You dont love her, Dallas.Her mouth fired off the accusation before her brain engaged. Either way, the words were spoken. His silence was deafening. The admission painful. However, she knew shed been right, even with- out seeing the narrowing of his eyes or the flare of his nostrils. Hed never lied to herever. And she knew he couldnt start now.

His mouth twisted, his brow knitted tighter. In the glow of the light from the shop, she saw his torment as he searched for words. He didnt have to. Alex saw the answer in the gray eyes she knew so well. Her imaginary world had been just that—totally one-sided and in her head only. The security and love shed felt from him over the years vanished, and the foundation of her world crumbled. The walls started to shift. Her heart was breaking, the cracks deepening at warp speed.

Her only choice—run.

Stepping away from the penetrating gray, she made a half turn, only getting an arms length away as he reached out to stop and spin her back. Dont you dare walk away from me, Alex.

The command was crisp and the deep tone had her body reacting to his order. Frozen to her spot, she stood ab- solutely still. It couldve been because of shock—it wasnt. The pounding in her chest left her reeling. He held her tightly by her upper arms. Unable to move, she shivered in his hold.

Fire sparked again. Dont dare walk away? Excuse me? You have no right—” 

Stop. Now.”
Her eyes flared as she clenched her fists at her sides. You made your choice. She spat out as she twisted in his hold, trying to free herself.

He gave her a light shake, after a long minute she realized she was going nowhere until he decided to let her. Gritting her teeth and panting in anger, she glared at the man shed spent a lifetime loving. It wasnt anger she saw mirrored in his eyes.

Youre too young.

The lines deepened and his head tilted to the side as if he was pleading with her to understand. That wasnt going to happen. Not now, not ever. Bullshit! Im twenty-three, Dallas. Whats your little friend? Twenty?

Stop it, Alex.

Again, his voice stilled her, but only momentarily. Damn it, Dallas. You stop. Look, I get it. I was stupid. I just always thought…never mind. Just let me go.

No. He shook his head, frowning as pain crossed his face. Youre just—”

I know. You said it once. Im not old enough. Whatever. Im old enough to know you dont always get what you want.

Embarrassed, hurt and frustrated, she yanked out of his hold. Turning, she stepped away in the opposite direc- tion, but not before she heard his last comment.

That makes two of us.

Stalling, her shoulders deflated. There was nothing more to say so she continued walking away. Away from her past, her present…and away from her future.
