  1. Hi Everyone! I am so excited for you all to read my newest contemporary romance Knockout love. Here's a little preview...
    Maggie shielded her eyes, hiccupping loudly. “It’s so bright!”
    “The moon is too bright?” Sean laughed, pulling her into his chest to shield her eyes.
    Without thinking, she wrapped her arms around his waist and looked up at him with a tipsy smile. “It’s not too bright for you?”
    “No, I’m Superman.”
    “Superman?” Maggie giggled again drunkenly, ending in another hiccup. “Superman would have been able to drink his own drink and not require me to do it for him. It’s your fault I’m this drunk.”
    “Is that so?” Sean responded with another smile. “It had nothing to do with the fact you ordered another two drinks on top of that, and had nothing in your stomach.”
    She looked up at him again and smiled. “Oops.”
    “No kidding, oops.” He cupped her face in his hands and looked into her eyes. “Lucky for you, you’re a pretty cute drunk.”
    “Thank you,” she responded, the world spinning around her. For a moment she felt as though she was dreaming. The air felt thick and heavy. Sean’s hands were like magic on her face. His sexy lips inched closer to hers. Then suddenly he was kissing her softly, sending spirals of electricity racing down her spine.
    Maggie sighed, standing on her tiptoes, pressing her body closer. She felt his white bandage scratch at her nose.
    “Ouch!” Sean jumped back and readjusted the bandage on his face. “Easy, girl.”
    And just like that, the spell was broken. Suddenly Maggie realized she had just kissed a man she barely knew, with a broken face, and some parts more broken than others.
    “Sorry.” She pressed a hand to her swollen lips—still tingling from Sean’s touch.
    “Don’t be sorry.” He made up the distance between them—smiling—his eyes hooded, predatory. “Just take it slow, let my face adjust.”

    1. Hi I normally don't read this type of fiction, but love Wrestling. Is your characters inspired by anyone specific? Such as Antonio Inoki, Somoa Joe, or The Great Muta? AABenM

    2. Great question! I based my male character off several different pro wrestlers. Two of the being Dean Ambrose and CM Punk. Having been a huge wrestling fan my whole life, I find most pro wrestlers and their lifestyles fasinating.

    1. Thank you:) If you liked Swept Away I think you'll enjoy Knockout Love. Just replace crab fishermen with pro wrestlers. Lol.

  4. I am super excited that this book is finally released. Swept Away was awesome and this one looks to be just as entertaining. I love how you write about unconventional male leads. It's refreshing and a new take to romance. Makes me smile every time :)

  5. I don't think I have ever heard of a romance featuring a pro wrestler. Where did you get the idea? And can you tell us a little bit about the leading man? Thanks.

    1. I've been a fan of pro wrestling my whole life. Pro wrestlers are always on the road, traveling to different states, and living their craft. In order to endure a schedule like that, you have to have a deep passion for what you do. In my opinion, a passionate male lead is always a good thing to have in a romance. My lead character, Sean, is a man who knows what he wants in life, and is determined to get it.

  6. I just wanted to say how pumped that this came out the day before Wrestlemania. What a way to get ready for the big event.

    1. Yes! Wrestlemania tomorrow. I'm so excited :) I don't think my publisher knew when we scheduled this book release it was the day before Wrestlemania, but good timing. Maybe it's a sign!

    Bought it. Read it. Loved it! (I'm a fast reader) What's better than a road trip romance? Being stuck together in close confines, sexual tension zinging all over the place. This it the kind of book I'm looking to read. And the characters are flawed just enough to make you fall in love with them. I found myself rooting for them to make it, but not wanting the story to end. Sue, you make me laugh out loud and bring a tear to my eye. Please tell me you have another book coming...?

    1. You just brought a tear to my eye! Thank you for reading Knockout Love. And so fast. In my opinion there is no better compliment than that :) I do have more books coming out. Four more actually. I have a YA fantasy romance due to release in June. A romantic thriller due to be released end of this month. I also have a contemporary three book series that will release this summer. Keep your eye on this blog calendar for my dates. I will be advertising quite a bit on this site.

      Thanks for the info. I'm always looking for new romance authors and I get really excited when I find someone that writes unique stories while also staying true to what I love about the romance genre. I'll be waiting for the next one.

  8. Love to see romance stories with atypical characters or story setting. Your last book "Swept Away" using the TV show's Deadliest Catch as a setting was particularly satisfying. This story using a wrestler as your leading man was great, although I thought a better fitting title would have been "Body Slam Love" :-)
    Keep up the good work.

    1. Body Slam Love! Hilarious. Maybe I should hire you to write my titles?

      I'm glad you enjoyed both Swept Away, and Knockout Love. Thank you for the support :)
