Forget Fifty Shades of Grey... get ready for Fifty Shades of Football!




The game kicks off early 2013...

'Ryan Fisher is young, talented, and very, very sexy; a professional footballer with the world at his feet he's returning to his native North-East after more than a decade away in a multi-million pound transfer deal to Newcastle Red Star, a big-name local club.  He's got it all - looks, fame, money; women falling at his feet, and a lifestyle he's in no hurry to give up.  But is his return back to the north of England as clear-cut as it seems?  

Amber Sullivan is a beautiful, ambitious Sports Editor for a local North-East news programme.  With an ex-professional footballer for a father she's grown up around the sport, but the one thing she's sworn off is relationships with men who play the game.  For a reason.  As far as Amber's concerned, work comes firstUntil she meets Ryan Fisher...

Jim Allen is a handsome, charismatic, extremely successful, American-born football manager.  He's been poached from a top London club to join Newcastle Red Star in a bid to give them the success that's eluded them for so long, but is the league title the only thing Jim's out to win?
A story of fame, power, secrets and sex, 'Striker' is a hard-edged romance with a kick.  Because, sometimes, the beautiful game isn't always so pretty...'

So, after reading that, do you want more of this story about a hot, sexy, bad-boy footballer?  Hmm? Anyone up for that?  Well, if you can hang on until early 2013 you'll get one, because 'Striker' is now officially on its way!  Yes, within a few short months this sexy romance will finally be ready to hit those virtual shelves, but, in the meantime, watch out for "introductions" to the main characters in 'Striker', and also look out for a blog post later this week which will let you in on the soundtrack to this book - the music I've been listening to as I write it; songs which have inspired me, songs that have - in some cases - driven this story along.  And some of them might surprise you slightly...  

Anyway, I hope this has at least got a few of you wanting to read more, but, be warned, I'm not joking when I call this Fifty Shades of Football... it's going to be hot! ;)  Let the countdown to kick-off begin...




*Update* 'Striker' is  now available to download HERE from Amazon!

  3. Thank you, ladies! :) And, yes, Amanda, this one IS going to be pretty steamy. Maybe not QUITE as steamy as Fifty Shades of Grey, but there's a bit of dressing-room action in there that could easily see the gorgeous Mr Fisher slapped with a three-match ban for mis-use of the facilities... ;)
