You guys, this week is so exciting. On Wednesday I’m flying to San Antonio for the Romance Writers of America’s annual conference, where I’ll get to take part in my first book signing, and where Mine Under The Mistletoe is up for a RITA award.
So what better way to start the week than with a cover reveal for my next book? Hurrah!
Tempting the Player comes out on November 10 (but you can preorder it now), and it’s book 3 in my London Legends rugby series. I have to admit, this is my favorite cover of the series (don’t tell Spencer and Liam that, though 🙂 ). And I absolutely LOVE this story. It combines some of my favorite things: a friends-to-lovers story with a hero who’s strong but vulnerable and a heroine who rescues him. What’s not to love?
For those of you who have read the rest of the series, you might be wondering who the hero of Tempting the Player is. Let me introduce you to Matt Ogden, a reserve player who’s fighting to be the team’s starting fullback. He’s only mentioned briefly in Playing It Close, when he and the rest of the players strip down for their calendar photo shoot.
He does a lot of stripping in this book, too. 😉
So are you ready to see Matt? (Seriously, he’s just so HOT.) Here he is – but you’ve got to put him together!
If you want to see him but don’t have the time or desire to do the puzzle (boo!) then head on over the Tempting the Player page and you can see him in all his muscular glory.
Here’s more about Matt and Libby’s story.
Tempting the Player
Book three of the London Legends
Best friends make the best lovers.
Libby Hart and Matt Ogden are perfect for each other—as friends. They’ve known each other for ages. They act as each other’s plus-ones. They even share custody of a dog. And if there’s always been a little spark between them, so what? It’s never been worth jeopardizing their friendship.
Professional rugby player Matt is fighting for a starter position with the London Legends—and that’s not the only thing he’s fighting. A crippling fear of flying means he’s struggling to get his career off the ground. He has no time for a relationship, even if Libby does make him ache. As an airline pilot, Libby’s looking for a stay-at-home husband so she can have a family without sacrificing her high-flying career. Matt’s certainly not that man.
But just because they don’t have a future together doesn’t mean they can’t have a right now. When Matt asks Libby for help overcoming his fear, they agree to take a vacation from their platonic relationship—whenever they fly together, they can have sex. It’s the perfect way to resolve all that built-up tension. As long as they can avoid getting a little too comfortable…
