Under the Lights: Exclusive Excerpt

 Under the Lights by Shannon Stacey

They Were the Golden Boys of Fall

Stewart Mills High School’s legendary championship winning football team. Fourteen years later, they’re back to relive their glory, save the team—and find themselves again…

Chase Sanders’s life has taken a lot of crazy turns lately. But returning to his hometown to help his old coach keep his high school football team afloat might be the craziest thing to happen to him yet. That is, until he starts falling for the last person he should—Coach’s gorgeous daughter…

Kelly McDonnell learned the hard way that cocky, charming men are nothing but trouble, so she knows Chase is bad news. Still, she can’t resist his smile—or the rest of him. But when his loyalty to her father conflicts with their growing attraction, any hope for a relationship might be blocked before it can even begin…

Get a sneak peek at Shannon Stacey's Under the Lights (available May 26, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Coach ran his finger down the menu, making sounds of indecision as he read. “I usually have the hash and cheese omelet since the wife won’t let me have them after my cholesterol check, but I’m not that hungry this morning.”

“Me neither, to tell you the truth.”

Amusement crinkled the corners of Coach’s eyes. “Make sure you tell your mom we said thanks for the pie.”

Action! Adventure! Larger-than-Life Heroes in Romantic Suspense

No Place to Hide by Shannon StaceyToday Heroes and Heartbreakers is delighted to welcome author Shannon Stacey. Shannon's No Place to Hide, the fourth book of her Devlin Group series, is a thrilling romantic ride with the hero having to protect the heroine from an assassin while he struggles with how important she's become to him. Shannon knows heroes, having written many memorable ones in her various series, so she's here to talk about what makes those heroes larger than life. Thanks, Shannon!

No matter the subgenre, a romance hero is always a little larger than life. When I’m asked why readers love the heroes in my contemporary romance series, I often say it’s because they’re the kind of guys who could be real, and who you could meet at gas station. That’s not really true, though. The chances of running into a smoking hot guy who’s great in bed, has plenty of money, a nice truck, loves and respects his family, and can drink a beer without belching is pretty slim.

The hero of an action-adventure romance, though, takes larger than life to an entirely new level. He’s everything listed above, plus he’s dangerous. His confidence comes from knowing he can and will take on anything that comes his way, and it’s incredibly sexy.
