Glad to see you back for another installment of What I Wrote Wednesday. Please help me welcome Katie Kenyhercz, my guest today. She's sharing a peek at her work, Fair Trade, which is due for release in December. This is book five in a hockey romance series set in Las Vegas. And after reading the selection Katie is sharing, it sounds like it's getting hot in Vegas. Take a look...
“Oh. Thanks.” She stepped around the desk and took it from him, glancing at the label on the front. “Welcome to the team, Grayson.”
“You, too, right? The guys said you were new.”
“I am, thank you.”
He made no move to leave, and the one hand was still cradled against his chest.
“Can I do anything else for you?”
His gaze lingered on her lips but he blinked, seeming to have caught himself staring. “Um.” He glanced at his hand and hesitated. This close to playoffs, it took a lot for a player to admit to an injury, but he already had whether he realized it or not.
“Can I see it?”
Another second’s delay, and then he extended his arm.
She offered her best reassuring smile and took his big hand gently in both of hers. With a soft touch and most of her attention on his expression, she manipulated his fingers first. Not a wince. Then again, with the way he was looking at her, she might be able to drop an anvil on his foot and he wouldn’t notice. It’d been so long since a man looked at her that way. That wasn’t true. They’d looked. She hadn’t been interested. Wasn’t interested now, but there was no denying the spark of attraction. Admitting it to herself was okay. Acting on it was not.
Dylan gained national attention in his early teens and went on to become the NHL's youngest captain and leading scorer in his second season. He breathed new life into a sport that had been dying in the States, but it's lonely at the top. Now the captain of the Vegas Sinners team is feeling the pressure and looking for something more.
America's ice princess might be the only one who can help his current slump-and Dylan's way of expressing thanks could undermine everything Lori has worked for. Can two people who spend their lives on the ice thaw just enough to let each other in?
I've been writing since I was twelve! It started with X-Files fan fiction, branched into contemporary romance, and finally blossomed into hockey romance. A weird progression, I know. Everyone always said, "Write what you love." I'm a hopeless romantic who loves hockey, so there you go.
I have a BA in Professional Writing and Editing, a MA in English, and MFA in the Writing of Popular Fiction. On the Fly, the first book in the Las Vegas Sinners Series was my thesis novel. It's being published through Crimson Romance.
While hockey is my true love and the focus of my writing life at present, I'm also into urban fantasy and may experiment with that in the future.
