I’m pleased to announce that Root (Band Nerd 2) is out today!
Until I joined the Marching 300 at Sauvage State University, I was just too-tall, tuba-playing Lena Leblanc. But college changes everything. Suddenly I have friends, and they won’t let me dodge the attraction I have for hulking, Viking-like football player Anders De Groot. He makes me feel; makes me believe that I’m more than a burden to others. That I’m more than just Lena. And for a girl whose mother checked out years ago, that’s the scariest feeling of all.
Before I met Lena, all I had was school and football; study and stadiums full of spectators cheering for “Root!” Now, I can’t get her out of my head. She’s everything I could possibly want in a woman and I need to prove to her how good we’ll be together. I need to show her that, no matter what, she’s perfection. My perfection. And I’ll stand my ground to make sure nothing ever hurts her. Not even her family.
See what I mean? How can he even be real? So impossibly sweet and hot? But with my stepfather threatening us, I’ll have to learn how to step up and fight for what I want. Otherwise I’ll lose the greatest thing to ever happen to me.
By the way, if you haven’t picked up Steady (Band Nerd 1) yet, be sure to do that soon. It’s on sale for just .99 until October 7th to celebrate the release of the second book in the series!
Everyone may call me “Steady” but recently my life has been all chaos. I went from Shaun Decker, NFL star, to being forced to retire and finding out my wife’s having an affair. Coaching for the Sauvage Spartans’ football program will be perfect for getting my life back on track. Then a delicious woman named Katie literally falls into my lap and then, after the best sex of my life, disappears.
I’m Katherine Frost, band nerd turned band director and, oh, apparently a magnet for married men. Discovering I’m the other woman already had me rethinking my life, then my one-night stand turns out to be married too. Gah! I want nothing to do with men ever again. Especially tall, handsome, bearded men named Shaun. I thought taking up a teaching position at Sauvage State was a strategic exit, stage left, but it’s looking more like going from the frying pan into the fire.
Hey, Shaun again. Don’t let her kid you. Fate puts people in the right place at the right time because they’re meant for each other. Football and marching bands go together, just like me and Katie. I just need to convince her of that.
I’m feverishly working to finish Dasher’s story so I can submit it to my publisher in time for the holidays. After that? Well, who knows? Maybe (just maybe) wrap up my sci-fi serial. But never fear, there will be plenty more Band Nerd books in 2017!
