Now available - Heart of a Champion!

I've joined up with several other sports romance authors to offer you this boxed set, starting off at .99 until June 20, 2014. It includes my book Offside - if you've already read Offside, still a good chance to try out some other sports romance authors, and if you haven't read Offside, great chance to get it cheap! It is Book 5 in my Heller Brothers Hockey series but it can totally be read as a standalone.

Don't you love the cover? Thanks to Scott Carpenter for such a great job! I love that pic. :-)

He’s impossible to resist…with a ripped body and a heart of a champion…Valued at over $20, take advantage of the introductory price - just .99 thru 06/20/14.
Romance and athletic heroism combine in this ultimate boxed set containing five full-length sports romances by popular authors Cassandra Carr, Kelly Jamieson, Morgan Kearns, Roz Lee and Chanta Rand.

Enjoy football, baseball and hockey heroes in Should've Known Better, Offside, In It To Win It, Inside Heat and The Highest Bidder.

Should've Known Better (Storm Series, #1)
by Cassandra Carr - Sarah Jenkins, a math geek and hockey fanatic, is thrilled when the NHL hires her as an advisor for the Buffalo Storm. She meets Sebastian St. Amant, a young hockey player looking to make the jump from the minors to the big leagues. When Sarah and Sebastian meet, sparks immediately fly. A relationship is out of the question—Sarah’s an influential staff member and Sebastian’s a player, not to mention over ten years her junior. But the impossible becomes the necessary when they can no longer fight their attraction. Will they weather the storm, or should they have known better? 

Offside (Heller Brothers, #5) by Kelly Jamieson - Honey Holbrook’s attention-grabbing antics were tabloid fodder for years. Now she’s trying to leave her past behind her and make a new life for herself. Matt Heller is recovering from a serious injury that changed his whole outlook on life, determined to resume his hockey career. Neither of them are happy to be working together again after their wild and wicked fling eight years ago ended badly...

In It To Win It (Deadlines & Diamonds, #2) by Morgan Kearns - Back in the day, ‘Plain Jane’ Alexander blended into the background, content to watch from the sidelines while Grayson Pierce soaked up the spotlight. Content until he broke her heart. Bitter, she did the college thing, came out of her shell, and never looked back. Grayson loves baseball. It was his pastime in high school, his passion in college, and now…his career. However baseball isn’t the only thing in Grayson’s heart. He likes fast cars, loose women and expensive liquor. When her job as a Sportscaster sends her to Grayson’s doorstep, she realizes that not everything is as it appears. 

Inside Heat (Mustangs Baseball, #1) by Roz Lee - Jeff and Jason are at the top of their game. Jeff is the Texas Mustangs’ closer, revered throughout the Major League for throwing inside heat, while his twin brother Jason is the team’s starting catcher and star hitter. The two have always shared more than their identical DNA, so when they meet Megan, it’s no wonder they both want her. 

Megan doesn’t know baseball, but she does know a sexy guy when she sees one - or two. When a potentially career-ending injury sidelines Jeff, his ego takes a hit, too. Megan finds herself on the outside – the dirty little secret. It doesn’t help that Jeff has gotten the wrong impression about her and his brother. It’s all fun and games until someone falls in love. 

The Highest Bidder by Chanta Rand - Quarterback Tristan Rexford is a hunter both on and off the football field. With a seven-figure income, a dazzling smile, and a body resembling Michelangelo’s David, he’s every woman’s fantasy. 

But Doctor Alexa Kennedy barely has time for her patients, much less fantasies. When it comes to men, she’s short on patience and long on disappointment. When one of the hospital’s board members attends a charity benefit and ends up with the winning bid for a date with Tristan, Alexa is chosen to escort him. 

They share a night of passion before Tristan retreats to his glamorous world, leaving her aching for more. Alexa tells herself it was all in the name of charity. She’s too sensible to fall for someone like Tristan. Or is she?

RT Booklovers Convention

As you may know I was at the RT Booklovers Convention last week. I had a great time! I met new author friends and new reader friends and new blogger friends. I participated in an awesome reader panel about LGBTQ romance. My Nine Naughty Novelists and I also did a panel discussion about group blogs/writing groups, sharing what we've learned over the last five years together. And I attended the Giant Book Fair - it was crazy but I was so happy to meet readers and even sell some books!

After the convention I stayed an extra couple of days with author friends Erin Nicholas and Jennifer Bernard (aka Juniper Bell) and we had some fun touring around. Here are some pics of my week:

On the swamp tour - I actually held an alligator! Okay, a baby, but still...

Big gator...
Our guide was a crazy Cajun - he dove into the water and wrestled with the gators...

The bayou was exactly how I pictured it from the many romances I've read set there.

So here's a cool thing. Amazon now has a way to add things to your Amazon shopping cart from Twitter. Once you link your Amazon account and Twitter, if you see a Tweet with an Amazon link (like, say...a book!) you reply to the Tweet adding the hashtag #AmazonCart, and it adds that item to your cart. You haven't bought it - but it's there for you when you want to. Can't wait to try this out!
