Chantal and I have contributed Swoon, a teammates to lovers story that's part of our Love & Rugby series.
When proud firefighter Gage gets stuck in a tree while rescuing a kitten, his secret fear of heights is thrust into full view of his rugby teammates and the guy he’s crushed on all season. Taking part in the rescue, tree doctor Valentine glimpses the vulnerability behind the tough mask Gage wears and is determined, quirks and all, to pursue the intriguing man. Caring for the kitten, the men form a connection that feels like the solid foundation for a relationship, but will Gage's worries of how his phobia could color his teammates', and in turn, Valentine's opinion of him and Val's doubts over whether he can trust Gage to keep his word when others haven't, keep them from the promise of new beginnings they've found in each other?
The anthology will only be available for a limited time. You can purchase it at Apple Books, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo now through July 14th: https://books2read.com/LIAV5
