Happy Release Day to Love And Other Games

Okay y'all, listen up. Not one, but FOUR of my writerly-friends banded together to give us this new adult anthology of winter-sports-themed romances. From the collective minds of Melinda Dozier, Kara Leigh-Miller, Ana Blaze and Aria Kane, comes Love and Other Games. It's set against the backdrop of the Olympic Games in beautiful Switzerland, and it's giving me all kinds of smiles. Once upon a time, I coached skiing in the Swiss Alps, and as amazing as that experience was, I only wish I'd run into some of the delightful book boyfriends these ladies have cooked up!

Be sure to visit the all day Facebook Party these golden girls have going on. (No, not those golden girls. The new crew.) And check out their sweet giveaway!

Love and Other Games: 
Worth More Than Gold by Ana Blaze
Amy Pierce, the klutzy sister and manager of America's Skating Sweetheart, is used to being invisible. But when a friend drags her to a party near the Olympic Village, Amy catches the eye of a sexy Norwegian ski jumper. It's a magical night, but an awkward next morning has her running. Everyone knows Erik Andresen's best shot at an individual medal was back in 2010, before an injury pulled him from the competition. He's been there for his team, but a hot night and a remarkable final training session have him wondering if a gorgeous good-luck charm could give him another chance at the podium. With a little bit of luck, these two might have a shot at something worth more than gold.

Trouble With Gold by Melinda Dozier
US snowboarder and notorious prankster, Ty (Trouble) Madsen is only getting a taste of his own medicine when his Olympic teammates shackle him to a fence wearing nothing but his boxers. Reception and protocol volunteer, Nadia Hoffman, gets up close and personal with the sexy snowboarder to rescue him, but she's not the kind of girl who lets her hormones get in the way. A professional performance could help her land her dream job at Olympics Committee Headquarters, but her new assignment supervising the rambunctious US Snowboarding Team is making that difficult. Can she see behind the snowman in the community center bathroom and into the warm heart of the man everyone calls Trouble?

The Girl Behind the Gold by Aria Kane
Greek aerial skier Lia Milonas' parents are about to lose the family farm. Saving it means medaling and landing a huge sponsor. While her no-nonsense attitude has her well on her way to a medal, it hasn't won her a place in fans' hearts. "Come back with a story that will make readers cry, or don't come back." This is what Brandon James' boss told him before he left New York to cover the Winter Games for Moment Magazine. With a wink and a smile, he can charm his way into any invite-only party, but that career-making story is nowhere to be found -- until he meets Lia. The two strike a deal that should get them both what they want -- but neither would have guessed they'd also find what they need.

Ice Gold by Kara Leigh Miller
Colton Campbell thrives on the fast paced, adrenaline rushed lifestyle of being an Olympic hockey player. Despite Brenna Jessup's abhorrence for the games and the athletes, she's hand-picked as the official photographer for the US Olympic Hockey Team. When a faux pas by Brenna almost costs Colton his career, she owes him. Too bad for her, Colton doesn't want apologies -- he wants retribution! And he knows just how to get it -- and her -- in the process.
