Julie Brannagh’s sexy, charming Love and Football series continues …
Star sports reporter Cameron Ondine has one firm rule: she does not date football players. Ever. She tangled with one years ago, and it did not end well. Been there, done that.
But when Cameron comes face-to-face with the very man who shattered her heart—on camera, no less—her world is upended for a second time by recklessly handsome Seattle Shark Zach Anderson.
Zach has never been able to forget the gorgeous blonde who stole his breath away when he was still just a rookie. They’ve managed to give each other a wide berth for years, but when their jobs suddenly bring them together again and again, he knows he has to face his past once and for all.
Because as they spend more time together, he becomes less focused on the action on the field and more concerned with catching Cameron.
A routine interview for Cameron’s TV show lands Zach in some pretty hot water…
At ten o’clock the next morning, Cameron clipped her microphone on, sat down in the plush on-set chair she used for interviews, and referred to the questions for Zach she’d printed onto index cards one last time. She was thankful to lose herself in work before Paige’s wedding, which would be held over the coming weekend. She’d escaped the rehearsal dinner by sprinting out the back door of the restaurant ten minutes after the dessert course.
She glanced up at movement across the set. Zach strolled toward her as if he had all the time in the world. The hair and makeup people had worked their magic with him, too. One would think he spent last night reading a book and turning in early instead of tearing it up with four women at a New York City landmark. His buzz-cut dark honey blond hair was a testament to the artistic use of hair products, and he’d obviously been overdosing on the Visine. There wasn’t a wrinkle or stray thread in sight. He treated her to a smile so dazzling it should come with eye protection.
Her palms were instantly sweaty. Her heart rate sped up. It didn’t matter if they’d stood on the sidewalk squabbling with each other last night; she still wanted him, dammit. She did her best to freeze her features into a politely disinterested expression and told herself not to fidget.
“Good morning, Ms. Ondine.” Zach lowered himself into the chair across from her, crossed his legs, and slung one arm around the back. He eyed her with a smirk. “Did you enjoy your evening?”
Julie Brannagh has been writing since she was old enough to hold a pencil. She lives in a small town near Seattle, where she once served as a city council member and owned a yarn shop. She shares her home with a wonderful husband, two uncivilized Maine Coons and a rambunctious chocolate Lab.
Julie hasn’t quite achieved the goal of owning a pro football team, so she created a fictional one: The Seattle Sharks. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, or armchair-quarterbacking her favorite NFL team from the comfort of the family room couch. Julie is a Golden Heart finalist and the author of four contemporary sports romances.
