Threatened with dismissal, newspaper reporter Bailey Stoddart hopes a story on Olympic gold medal rower Connor Freeman will prove to her boss she doesn't need to write gossip to produce interesting articles.
Except this national hero doesn't give interviews, not since the euphoria from his Olympic win faded and reduced his enthusiasm for rowing. Gorgeous Bailey is involved in his sport and has enough eagerness for them both, so could she renew his passion?
Past experience has taught Bailey to be wary of sportsmen on a personal level but Connor's attraction grows. Will convincing her to stay and support him prove more challenging than winning his Olympic gold medal?
About the Author
Jena Petrie is a New Zealander who writes contemporary, heart-warming romance books like Gold Medal Hero, the first in her Hero series.
Fuelled by chocolate, regardless of how it comes—drinks, bars, cookies or brownies, and interspersed with the slightly healthier alternative of mochas to ease her guilt— Jena works most mornings on her writing. Having lived in several different places in both the North and South Islands of New Zealand, Jena has set her stories in a variety of locations around the country.
When she isn't at home in front of her computer developing her latest story, Jena can usually be found tending to her flower garden, or enjoying a ride on the back of her husband's motor-bike as they explore some of New Zealand's rural areas.
This is Jena's first published book. Over the past few years Jena has completed several university papers on creative writing, taken numerous on-line courses on fiction writing and developing stories, and attended many Romance Writers of New Zealand conferences, all aimed at improving her writing skills to bring you, her readers, the most captivating, enjoyable, satisfying stories possible.
