I write romantic suspense. I like the action and suspenseful nature of the stories and I’ll admit I’m not much of a sports fan. But, when I was plotting and writing Promising Piper I decided to dip my toe into the sports romance aspect, just a little and created Royce Roman, Quarterback extraordinaire.
Royce is all things you want in a hero; he’s handsome, smart, he has a big heart, and he’s loyal and true. When Royce met Piper, she was in need of a bit of assistance, it wasn’t hard for him to step up and defend her. There wasn’t even a choice to make, he just jumped into action.
I love the way the story turned out and while the sports aspect of Promising Piper isn’t all – sportsy – I’m happy to have mixed my love of romantic suspense with a bit of sports.
Did you read Promising Piper? Tell me what you thought of it.
