is but a substance that must yield to you.’
Pericles, Act 2, Scene 1
Loren Mackenzie has held herself apart, honing her body and her mind to overcome self-doubt and the physical challenges that go with being a professional cyclist in the European peloton. An accident at the Philadelphia International Cycling Classic brings the chance for Loren to lead her teammates to victory. However, she has spent a lifetime hiding from the spotlight, burying her feelings and concealing secrets of her past from those closest to her, and from herself.
While a chance meeting with a famous actor brings a love she could never have imagined, the whirlwind romance threatens to unravel her tightly wound life. As their relationship intensifies, so does the media attention, dredging up Loren’s fears that her life isn’t as idyllic as it seems.
As the Women’s World Tour continues with races across Europe, Loren and her cycling team face defeat and achieve victory together. But, intimidation and jealousy stalk her, conspiring to put not only her chances at the World Championship in jeopardy but also force her to confront the phantoms buried in her past.
Can Loren face the trauma of her past and vanquish the demons within, or will betrayal and obsession ultimately defeat her?
