18 Reasons Why We Love Athletes

Today we welcome not one, not two, but six authors to talk about why they love athletes. This week, Carina Press published six new sports romances, each featuring a different sport: football, tennis, baseball, hockey, mixed martial arts, and rugby, and we're happy to welcome Rebecca Crowley, Rhonda Shaw, Kate Willoughby, Michele Mannon, Allison Parr, and Kat Latham to discuss why they love athletes.
