There’s something about those college years that’s super exciting… dorms, sororities, fraternities, parties, football games, March Madness and the Frozen Four, all those hot players–especially the hockey jocks.
What is it about the hockey players that make them especially appealing in romance novels?
Maybe it’s that hockey players are understated in their cocky confidence. Or maybe it’s that they’re in killer shape–talk about stamina!!
Did you know hockey players need to eat 6,000 calories a day to make up for all that energy they expend on the ice?
And that doesn’t even count the Big D energy...
My newest release, Your Kiss Is On My List , all about a hockey player at St. Paul U and his best friend from childhood. She’s all grown up now–too grown up not to want a new grown up relationship with him.
But neither of them claims to want the distraction of unwanted attention or a relationship, so they embark on an ill-fated fake girlfriend-boyfriend pretense.
Of course there’s a whole lot more to the story, but here’s a little TEASER:
“Come with me to my dad’s house in New York for the weekend. I need the moral support.”
“What’s the catch?” Because the way she’s looking at me, I know there is one.
“We’ll have to share a bedroom because I told him we were… serious.”
“Serious? Seriously?” I’m stalling to get my sh*t together because I’m not sure if she’s inviting me to sleep with her or if she expects me to sleep on the floor. There’s no way I can sleep on the floor with her in the bed in the same room. No sleeping would be involved either way.
“Well?” she prompts and I’m still afraid to ask about her intentions…
