The Year of the Female Fictional Athlete!

rooster-crowing-2It’s not too often an author gets to brag they got a mention in USA Today‘s online publication, but thanks to Roz Lee, who did a little name-dropping in the right ear, my sports romance, Points on a Curve rates a mention on Elley Arden’s It’s the year of the fictional female athlete

Points on a Curve ebook revisedIn case you haven’t met Taylor “Tay” O’Brien, she’s a former European Point Guard darling, playing in the Italian B-1 League, who gets caught up in a scandal and runs home to the States with her tail between her legs.

But not for long. Tay might be down but she’s not out. Sure she made some bad choices, especially the one that had her hitching her wagon to con man Michael O’Brien, but as Tay says, “You don’t have to marry young to marry stupid.”

With the help of friends, Tay is staying out of the limelight and working on turning her life around. That is, until her best friend Cordie decides to do a little match-making with her younger brother as the plus one.

Hello Rob van Horn, a sports journalist with a nose for news and a very special fondness for ladies with wingspan and solid moves in the paint. It’s not exactly a match made in the Garden, but after a while Rob wears Tay down and convinces her to give him a chance. The only problem is, Rob’s following a story that threatens to put Tay back in the news, and not in a good way.

Points on a Curve combines suspense, hot basketball action, and the kind of one-on-one moves that take dinner and romance to a whole nother level.


About Nya Rawlyns

Crossing boundaries, taking no prisoners. Write what’s in your soul. It’s the bass beat, the heartbeat, the lyrics rude and true. Nya Rawlyns is the pseudonym of a writer who cut her teeth on sports-themed romantic comedy and historical romances before finding her true calling in the wilderness areas she has visited but calls “home” in that place that counts the most: the heart. She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or two pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
