The Journey Begins...

The Race of a Lifetime

The first book in the Relentless Pursuit Series, The Race of a Lifetime follows 17-year-old James Holiday as the the tensions of war in the mid-1800s force him to leave the military academy in central France – his only home during his formative years. The death of his grandfather leaves James no refuge in England, and so he turns his attention to America and the hope of tracking down his father—a man he barely remembers—with only a few clues to lead him. James will risk everything on the slim chance of reuniting with his past...and finding a new life out West.

A Thrilling Series

“There is a lot to love in this story. It begins with a bang, and the opening is dramatic, intense, and immediately introduces one of the major conflicts in the story. It’s a huge promise, but the fulfillment of that promise is executed with skill and elegance.”
