Harlequin KISS/M&B Modern Tempted author Heidi Rice delves into the world of Grand Prix racing drivers and discovers that Chris Hemsworth can do a really good British Accent. Who knew?
And of course, there was the promise of Chris Hemsworth trying to do a British accent as James Hunt, which I must say intrigued me. As a child of the 1970s I do vaguely remember James Hunt in his heyday: the shaggy blond locks, the plummy accent, the chain-smoking and the playboy reputation. Couldn't remember a thing about his actual career or achievements as a Formula One driver mind you but I was about to be educated. In a big way.
And hats off to Chris Hemsworth, for sounding more British than Prince William!
Dare I say, the film as a whole is a real adrenaline-rush of a movie, but for all the right reasons.
Heidi's latest release - Maid of Dishonor - is currently available to buy in the US in Harlequin KISS and the UK in Modern Tempted and is part three in the fabulous Wedding Season Quartet, which also features books by Aimee Carson, Amy Andrews and Kimberly Lang.
