Free romance short: Suddenly Famous

As a thank you to my wonderful readers, I've written a free short story, Suddenly Famous, as a prequel to the full-length novel, Falling Into Drew.

Drew is twenty-nine when the novel opens. He's a retired world-champion downhill ski racer whose fame and good looks landed him on magazine covers, in ads for high end brands and with his choice of women. It also made him very rich.

But how did he get there? The prequel starts eight years earlier when Drew won his first Olympic gold medal. Women pursue him, but will fame, wealth and meaningless sex satisfy him or does he want something more?

                            She stumbled. He caught her.
She didn’t know who he was until she saw his face in a magazine.

       When New York book editor Kate Porter literally bumps into Drew O’Connor, she has no idea that the man with the drop- dead looks is an Olympic champion skier, the face in the ads of famous luxury brands, and a serial dater of models and actresses. Their attraction is immediate, yet he rides off on his Harley and she returns to her office.
       A few weeks later, they reconnect over a book deal, but sexual tension makes it difficult to maintain a professional distance. Their relationship heats up, but Drew’s fame, dark past, and a life-changing secret test their feelings for each other.

"Mystery, adventure, multiple locales, and a sensuous relationship between two amazingly intriguing characters. All of the many characters were fully developed, and the plot was an intricate jigsaw with pieces that all fit together perfectly. I got this book for free, no strings attached, and I am definitely, positively going to read the rest of the series. The story fully stands on its own, but love the characters so much, really want to read their next adventure."


Sneak Peek

I hope you enjoy this excerpt from my newest book, which is 3/4 written. Kate Porter is an editor at a major New York publishing company and Drew O'Connor is a gold medal-winning Olympic downhill skier who has become wealthy through endorsements and modeling. In this scene from the first chapter Kate is in church and has just lit a candle for a sick family member. I'd love to see your comments, so please add your reaction below. Thanks!!!

"As she rose from her knees she stumbled and backed into something large, solid and warm. “What the hell,” she began, startled as she felt arms come around her waist to steady her.

“Not the best word to utter in a church, is it?” The voice was deep and she could feel the man’s warm breath near her ear. She grasped the arms that held her against a body whose muscles were evident through the butter soft black leather jacket he wore. She turned her head in time to see her rescuer add a playful grin to his comment. “If I let go, will you be all right?”

“I’m fine,” she said, shoving his arms away. “If you hadn’t been right behind me when I stood, I wouldn’t have…well, thank you.”

“My pleasure.”

Kate didn’t know whether her heart’s rhythm had been affected by losing her footing or in reaction to her first look at the man who’d prevented her from crashing onto the church’s hard stone floor. Even in the dim, flickering candelight, she could only think of one word to sum up his this blue-eyed stranger’s looks — magnificent.

Instead of heading toward the massive bronze doors that led to Fifth Avenue, they walked side by side toward another exit, stealing glances at each other. They paused at the door and after he opened it and held it for her, Kate turned toward the nameless knight. “Thank you, but your job is done, Sir Galahad. You don’t need to follow me.”

“Don’t flatter yourself. My bike’s outside. If I’d left it on Fifth, it would have been towed.”

“Oh.” Was that all she could manage to say? This man, with his drop dead looks and confident strut, flustered her. “Well, bye and thanks again.” She bit her lip and watched as he jogged down the steps. He looked back at her and aimed a killer grin in her direction. Then his expression changed and, for a brief moment, it looked as if he wanted to say something before he lifted one long leg to straddle a big black Harley. Their eyes met and Kate’s face flushed as her mouth formed a silent “O” just before his face disappeared behind the protective black mask of his helmet. The machine roared to life and a moment later he was gone, expertly weaving through a street filled with yellow taxis. 

Kate shook her head as if to break the spell he’d cast. As attractive as this man might be — and there was no denying that he was incredibly handsome — bad boys in leather on Harleys were so not her thing. Not anymore."


Book Four Cover?

Now that I've passed the 40,000 word mark, I'm starting to think about book four's title and cover. This is the way I visualize the story's main male character, Drew O'Connor. A small shamrock tattoo would have to be added over his heart to complete the picture.

Romance readers: Would you buy a book with this guy on the cover?
