Today it’s my pleasure to welcome author of contemporary romance, Stacy Hoff. She’s going to tell us some more about herself and her latest release, JOCKEYING FOR YOU.
Stacy, please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am an attorney by day, a writer by night, and a mom & wife all of the time. I’m pretty much busy from sunup to sundown. No rest for the weary!
What do you write?
I write contemporary romance, although I vary my themes. My “Desire” series (DESIRE IN THE EVERGLADES and DESIRE IN THE ARCTIC) is action/adventure. LAWFULLY YOURS is women’s fiction. My newest release, JOCKEYING FOR YOU, is sports romance.
What is unique about your new release?
There are not too many sports romances based around horse racing. There are even less with a female jockey heroine. (Or, should I say, a heroine who was a jockey before the accident that made her quit racing.)
How long did it take you to first get published?
Forever! Okay, less than that, but it felt like forever. Certainly it took me a few years of attending classes held by my chapter of RWA (Romance Writers of America) for me to truly understand the demands of the publishing industry.
Do you have any future projects coming up?
I have written two books of a new series, “Building Love.” It’s contemporary romance, centered on the construction industry. Each story will be steeped in family drama, scandal, secrets, and of course love. Book 1, BUILDING LOVE IN VEGAS, will be released in the next few months. Book 2, BUILDING LOVE IN THE CARIBBEAN, will be released thereafter. All I’ve got to do now is dream up book 3!
What’s a fun fact about yourself?
I sketch live models once a month at a local arts studio. I’d love to find the time to paint at some point in the future.
JOCKEYING FOR YOU by Stacy Hoff
Jake Carter is on a mission—to prove his family wrong. He may have bought a troubled horse, but he’s hired Ryder Hannon, a “horse whisperer,” to get his horse back on track. She’s more than just a trainer to him, she’s the woman he’s been looking for.
Ryder Hannon, a thoroughbred horse trainer, has a big problem—fighting her fear of racing again. Her emotional scars run deeper than her physical ones. But her romantic feelings towards handsome, uber-rich, stable owner Jake Carter is a bigger problem. Is Jake truly in love with her or is he using her to get back at his smug family?
When Jake’s jockey gets injured, he wants Ryder to race. He knows deep down she wants to live up to her family’s legacy. So why does she keep fighting him—and her destiny—so hard?
