Who Can Resist a Hot Athlete?
by Tracy March
Not me! When Stella kindly invited me to visit today, she asked me to chat about my favorite subject…EVER—the appeal of the athlete hero! I’ve swooned over many more athletes than Hollywood actors, hands down. No contest. Game over!
Take those incredible attributes and give them to a romance hero, and wanna-be-heroines will line up like eager teenagers at an American Idol audition! What woman wouldn’t want to experience the raw intensity of being involved with an accomplished athlete? Give him some sensitivity, a sense of humor, a dose of humility, a kind heart, and a forgivable flaw or two, and you’ve got an irresistible hero. A little swagger is required, too, but no overblown egos are allowed unless our lovable hero is set to become humble during the story.
How about you? Are you game for athlete heroes? What about them makes you swoon?
Look for Tracy's contemporary romance debut, , in March 2013, and her romantic thrillers, , in April 2013, and A SHOT OF RED in spring 2014, all from Entangled Publishing.
Always up for travel and adventure, Tracy has flown in a stunt plane, snowmobiled on the Continental Divide, ziplined in the Swiss Alps, and been chased by a bull in the mountains of St. Lucia. She loves Nationals baseball, Saturday date nights, and Dairy Queen Blizzards—and rarely goes a day without Diet Coke and Cheez-Its.
Tracy lives in Yorktown, Virginia, with her superhero husband who works for NASA. They recently spent two years living in Washington D.C., and enjoy visiting often—especially when the Nats are in town.
Book #1 in the Suddenly Smitten series
Liza Sutherland isn’t looking for love. Not from a -auction date she didn’t even bid on and especially not with Nationals first baseman Cole Collins, the guy she obsessed over as an awkward teenager. She won’t get involved with a notorious player, no matter how attractive Cole is.
Cole Collins is up for contract renegotiation, but after too many late-night parties, he’ll need some positive publicity before he can make the roster. His agent, Frank, pitches Liza as the perfect prop…only Cole didn’t account for Liza no longer being just a teenager with a crush. She’s gorgeous and smart and he’s instantly hooked.
When Frank makes Liza a deal she can’t refuse—a bet she will fall in love with Cole or a cool half mil goes to —the game is on. But neither bet on the real feelings that surface. Could a fake fling turn into an official forever?
