RFTC Hall Pass Event with Kat Latham

Kat Latham is a California girl who moved to Europe the day after graduating from UCLA, ditching her tank tops for raincoats. She taught English in Prague and worked as an editor in London before she and her British husband moved to the Netherlands. Kat’s other career involves writing and editing for charities, and she’s traveled to Kenya, Ethiopia and India to meet heroic people helping their communities survive disasters.

There’s nothing better than falling in love, and when I open a good book to find a man who’s honorable, funny and intelligent, I can’t help falling a little in love. Oh, and I might just have a thing for athletes.

I’ve chosen a few heroes who fit that bill for me, and I’d love to know what traits make a romance hero a keeper for you!

1. Gabriel Bishop from Rock Hard by Nalini Singh

This one’s a no-brainer for me. I’m a sucker for rugby players (heck, I’ve written a whole series about them!), and Gabriel is not only a retired rugby player but happily admits that strong, intelligent women are his catnip. Swoon!

2. Dan Calebow from It Had to be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

I think It Had to be You was probably the first sports romance I ever read, and it filled me with such joy that I wanted to write one of my own. Football coach Dan sees past team owner Phoebe’s cotton-candy exterior and connects with woman she truly is. He encourages her to be stronger than she thinks she can be. I love that in a man!

3. Matt Scanlon from The Winning Season by Alison Packard

If you haven’t read this book, run to your ereader and buy it. It’s one of my all-time favorites. Matt is a pro baseball player who has a snarky relationship with the team’s publicist. But as the two spend more time together, Matt’s gentle side begins to show, making him unforgettable.

That’s it! Three sporty heroes with hearts as big as their muscles. Now tell me: What qualities make a romance hero a keeper for you?

Book 3 in the London Legends Series

Best friends make the best lovers.

Libby Hart and Matt Ogden are perfect for each other—as friends. They’ve known each other for ages. They act as each other’s plus-ones. They even share custody of a dog. And if there’s always been a little spark between them, so what? It’s never been worth jeopardizing their friendship.

Professional rugby player Matt is fighting for a starter position with the London Legends—and that’s not the only thing he’s fighting. A crippling fear of flying means he’s struggling to get his career off the ground. He has no time for a relationship, even if Libby does make him ache. As an airline pilot, Libby’s looking for a stay-at-home husband so she can have a family without sacrificing her high-flying career. Matt’s certainly not that man.

But just because they don’t have a future together doesn’t mean they can’t have a right now. When Matt asks Libby for help overcoming his fear, they agree to take a vacation from their platonic relationship—whenever they fly together, they can have sex. It’s the perfect way to resolve all that built-up tension. As long as they can avoid getting a little too comfortable…
