The result will be Katie MacAlister‘s very fun The Perils of Paulie.

As the adventure begins, Paulie’s heart is twisted into a few knots by Dixon who appears to be repulsed by her. Will the race bring them closer together? Or will it bring her closer to rejection? And what about the Russian mafia? Read The Perils of Paulie and find out.
