Have a Little Steam With Your Hockey

Hot hockey playerSteamy hockey romance, that is. Because of course. Who ever heard of a sweet hockey romance?

That was a serious question asked of me the other day by a writer who wondered if there were any readers out there who might want to read her books. She’s writing sweet hockey romance. Frankly, my answer to her was that I have no idea.

But I DO know that readers love a little steam with their romance when it involves a hunky hockey player.

Because that’s the payoff with a hunky athlete for a hero, right?

But I felt bad about not having a better answer for this author, so I did a quick survey of the top 100 sports romances on Amazon to see if I could find a sweet hockey romance book on the list anywhere.

The answer: a big fat ZERO

Which makes sense to me. We all have our reasons for choosing what we love to read, but there are those universal fantasies that hold true for many of us and one of them is to be ravaged by a big strong man–in no uncertain terms. These romances come in many tropes and subgenres from dark mafia to motor cycle club stories. And somewhere in there fit the sports heroes.

And within the sports romances, hockey romance reigns supreme. And by that I mean, the readers are dedicated and the books sell like hotcakes–or hot hunks.

If you have that fantasy about a rich rugged hunk who could have anyone choosing you, then steamy hockey romance will check that box. Every time.

You’ll know from the opening lines from He Has Charm that it’s a steamy one:

“Being blind isn’t a problem, sugar. I can smell and feel my way around you.” She giggles as I sit up in bed and rip the blindfold off.

That’s when I realize being blind actually was a problem. A big problem. Because I’m faced with three lovely naked ladies—and one of them has a camera…

College + Hockey + Romance = Yikes!

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...

Your Kiss Is On My List

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…
