When I started writing hockey romance, I was a new fan of the sport. I didn’t have the extensive knowledge that years of watching and yelling at the television will give you, so I bought NHL.TV and watched as many games as I could. I loved the interactions between the guys on the ice and wanted to bring my readers in on the fun, even if they weren’t die-hard hockey fans.
There’s something about on-ice scenes that move the story along for me. Yes, it’s typically not between the hero and heroine, but I always want to show how the hero grows in each scene with his teammates. To me, that is just as important as his growth with the heroine.
Do you like reading on-ice scenes? Do they move the story along, or do you just want to see the interactions between the hero and heroine? The following review is one of my favorites because as a new hockey fan, I wanted to make sure I captured the feel of the game and accurately depicted it on the page.
5.0 out of 5 stars (Skating the Line)
“As a fan of hockey and fiancée to a former hockey player (local men’s league) the facts and feel of these players and games is spot on. The hockey ass is a true and *WONDEROUS* thing to hold onto. Recommend this series to all – fast, racy, and truly heartfelt.” By Tina SG on Amazon
If you want to learn more about the actual sport, my heroine in Breakout knew nothing about hockey but loved learning new facts, so of course, the hero had to give her a book of hockey terms. Filtering in random facts and terms, without just dumping the information on my readers was a true treat.
You can grab all of my books in Kindle Unlimited and on Amazon today.
Happy reading and happy hockey watching!
