|One of my bull riders...|
What's the allure of the sports romance? Well, I think a lot of that lies with the hero, though stories with female athletes can be very hot too. But what's not to like about a man who's really, really good at something and makes a lot of money doing it? Yes, there have been stories in the news about guys like Tiger Williams who think the world is their personal orgy opportunity, but by and large athletes are decent people.
Why do I write sports romance? Because I love sports, particularly hockey, though I write bull riders and will be expanding into some other sports in the next year or so. I know for a fact there are millions of female sports fans, so it follows that at least some percentage of them are also readers. BAM! A market for what I want to write. Yay!
|Yep, sports heroes are pretty hot...|
They love the Alpha males who tend to show up in sports romances.
So here are my questions - IF you read sports romance, why? IF NOT, why not?

Now I need to go. I'm in the middle of revisions on...a sports romance!
