Here’s a book for lovers of both motorsport and romance, if Harlequin’s series of NASCAR-themed romance novels just doesn’t hit the mark for you.

    Clearly tongue-in-cheek – the author’s nom de plume is Anita Driver, after all – this Daniel Ricciardo-themed romance novel is available on Amazon.

    Overtake My Heart: Thicc Ric Races For Love is called both the first in a series of 69 books in the Daniel Ricciardo Erotic Adventure Series, and “makes a great gift for mom”.

    The paperback is only 50 pages long, so it must reach its… ahem… climax quite quickly.

    You can preview one of the precious few pages in the book on Amazon, but here’s the blurb:

    “Rev up your engines for a sizzling, high-octane romance! ‘Overtake My Heart’ will take you on a heart-stopping ride filled with passion, speed, and heartbreak.

    “Follow Emily, a smart and independent woman, as she navigates the thrilling and glamorous world of Formula 1 racing and tangles with the irresistible, charming playboy, Daniel Ricciardo.

    “Will Emily’s love be enough to tame the notorious heartbreaker? Will Daniel risk his career and reputation for the woman who’s captured his heart?

    “Buckle up for a love story that’s as unpredictable and exhilarating as the race itself. You’ll be on the edge of your seat until the very last page!”

    You could buy a longer and ostensibly more serious Harlequin novel, but none of those have an exaggeratedly jacked Australian race car driver on their cover.
