With the lockout over and football on the horizon, it’s time for little football, and I have just the thing, my football hero romance, Fourth and Goal.
Keeping this in mind, I wrote a different kind of football hero romance, one in which the heroine loves football and is as knowledgeable as most men. My hero is a struggling football player, attempting to get his game back. The story not only follows the romance between hero and heroine, it also follows the team’s ascent from basement-dwellers to championship contenders.
While most of my research wasn’t as fun as the Football 101 workshop, I enjoyed writing Fourth and Goal. I fell in love with my own characters, and they became as familiar to me as dear friends.
