GENRE: Romantic Suspense
Manchester Marauders offensive lineman Jason Stafford has everything going for him until he is blindsided by a calculating woman who names him as the father of her unborn child. Unsure of the validity of her claim, he treads carefully, despite being willing to accept responsibility.
Maude Killion, the younger sister of one of Jason’s teammates, has been sidelined by a crush on Jason. Determined to revise her game plan, Maude asserts her independence from her overprotective brother and a controlling boyfriend.
While working on a charity project, Maude and Jason discover they play well together. But when Maude becomes the victim of a malicious foe, it appears that another player has entered the game—one with deadly intentions who will stop at nothing to win.
Now, Maude and Jason must join forces to defeat their opponent and score a victory for love.
Barely able to keep up with his long strides, Maude followed him down the corridor to an old gym. No overhead lights, along with the gray skies, kept the room dark.
Which might have been a good thing, because her mind blanked the moment Jason shoved her against the wall and kissed her.
In shock, she took a moment to catch up with his hungry lips before shoving against his chest. “What are you doing? What is this?”
He smiled his wicked playboy smile and drew her lower body against his own. “Gratitude.”
“Gratitude for what?” Maude drew a deep breath, fighting past whatever blocked her throat and caused her heart to thunder.
He tucked her hair behind her ear. “For listening to me the other night.”
“I didn’t mind. I don’t want gratitude from you. I want…I don’t know, because I can’t believe this is real. You kissing me isn’t doing anything but confusing me.” She stepped out of his arms. “Plus, you came with Ariel.”
“I didn’t leave with her.”
“Oh, that’s a great line, one I’m sure you’ve used often, but with me…no. Just no. I don’t do lines, and I don’t do grateful kisses.”

With the guidance of the Indiana Romance Writers of America chapter, she’s learned there are many “rules” to writing a proper romance. Being re-schooled has been an interesting journey, and she hopes the best trails are yet to be traveled.

Fire and Ice contest in the Women’s Fiction category.
