Nash Dingmen aka â€˜The Dingerâ€™ didnâ€™t earn his nickname by dominating the hockey rink. No, heâ€™s notorious as the biggest seducer in hockey. It doesnâ€™t help that he carries the sexy, mesmerizing exterior that causes sane women to drop their panties at the curve of his smirk.
No Mr. Nice Guy. No girlfriends. No second date.
Or any dates â€“ itâ€™s all between the sheets.
After my first encounter with Nash Dingmen â€“ Iâ€™d hoped I would never see his face again. It was the interview of a lifetime, a chance that it ended up with my dream shattered and becoming the next internet sensation â€“ for all the wrong reasons.
With my career all but gone, I am barricaded to the house to shy away from the jokes and jibes. Drowning in ice cream and Cheetos but itâ€™s time to get back on my feet â€“ and get my head in the game. One thingâ€™s for damn sure, being his next conquest is not my game plan. My sister Charlie persists thereâ€™s got to be more than â€˜The Dingerâ€™ reputation precedes – and being a reporter, Iâ€™d have to say Iâ€™m not entirely against investigating what all the fuss is aboutâ€¦
When hurdle after hurdle comes my way, why does Nash always seem to be there?
Every nerve is screaming at me to run as fast as I can away from him â€¦ however, do I really want to? The temptation to play the game to see what the real scoop is beneath â€˜The Dingerâ€™ may be too strong to resist.
As a writer and photographer for publication such as magazines, television and radio, I find it easy to write an article or a jingle, but I always longed to write a romance novel. To have a challenge thatâ€™s longer than five hundred words. To really dive deep into all emotions that one gets from reading a killer novel. I can only hope Iâ€™m doing it right so that people will enjoy and feel the raw grit that I draw from in my personal experiences, that I indeed put into my work.
Though Iâ€™m starting this adventure late in my career Iâ€™m confident that this has always been the right choice and Iâ€™m thankful I finally grew a pair to make it happen. Once I started there was no stopping this crazy train!
A few tidbits about myself is I love classic cars, motorcycles, going on crazy motorcycle runs, photography, writing and my puppy Bowie Brexlee Birtie, my dude of fifteen years, Mr Birtie who is a huge supporter of all the crazy things I get into, and of course I love reading romance novels!! Definitely not in that order. My girl Bowie is my number one above all things. She listens to all my book ideas, which basically makes her my writing partner. This is just some of what makes me who I am and I hope we all can form a rad writer/reader relationship!
