Sports Romance: Stina Lindenblatt

Our Favorite Sports Romances

I think it’s fair to say a lot of us love reading contemporary romances that center around sports, don’t we?  We have our favorite series/authors/sports and generally these books will leave you with a smile on your face.  NFL season is just getting started and maybe you’re feeling that itch to pick up a sports themed book wo we thought it would be great to pick author’s brains and ask them what’s THEIR favorite sports romances and maybe give you something new to read or simply a peak into their reading tastes.  This week it’s all about author recommendations here at Under the Covers and you’ll have daily opportunities to enter our week-long giveaway!

Two series recommendations for you today…

Stina’s picks

Having a home in a city with a NHL team = love of hockey romances. Throw in lots of laughs and sexy times, and I’m all set.

So my favorite series has to be Off Campus by Elle Kennedy—with the Pucked series by Helena Hunting only a shoulder check away.

Off Campus…

One-Night Stand Rule #1: always check the condom’s expiry date.

Career-orientated Holly Whittaker has a plan, and being a mom is not part of it. Her not-quite-a-fairytale childhood involved being brought up by thirty nannies (yes, thirty!), so what the heck does she know about being a mom anyway?

Playboy Josh Hoffer has no room in his life for a family or steady girlfriend. His hockey career comes first. Life is tough when you’re on the road more times than you’re not. Besides, what does he know about diapers and baby yoga and fairytale princesses?

After Holly receives some unexpected bad news, she’s looking to blow off a little steam, and hot sex with Mr. No Commitment himself fits the bill just fine. But sex is never without consequences, and this time it’s more than her heart that is at stake. This time, Mr. No Commitment and Ms. Career need to figure out what’s really important to them and find room in their heart for another—plus one.

Warning: Contains naughty texts, shower sex, and enough profanities to fill an oversized swear-word jar.



About Stina Lindenblatt

Born in Brighton England, I have lived in a number of countries, including England, the U.S, Finland, and Canada.

I have a Physical Education degree from the University of Calgary and a Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology from the University of Alberta, where I specialized in energy metabolism. Definitely cool stuff (seriously, it is!). I also had the opportunity to work with elite athletes through the universities and at several sport-training facilities (you know, in case you’re wondering why I always have athletes in my stories). During my undergrad, I worked in Helsinki (Finland) for one summer, cleaning bathrooms and saunas in a recreation center for the elderly. The seniors were great. The bathrooms, not so much. I eventually became a pharmaceutical sales representative (not a great one may I add) and now I write full time.

In addition to writing fiction, I love photography, especially the close-up variety, and currently live in Calgary, Canada, with my husband and three kids.
