Baseball And Harlequin: So Nice I'm Doing It Twice!
Last year, in an inexplicable burst of creative energy (I probably should have bottled it) - I came up with this great (OK, in my mind) idea to celebrate the return of baseball, America's pastime, by putting unsuspecting players for the Detroit Tigers in Harlequin category romances. Because what does Wendy possibly love more than the Tigers and Harlequins? Not a whole lot. Plus, I didn't get sued last year - so decided why not press my luck?
For those of you who missed last year's extravaganza, here is a recap:
Miguel Cabrera in The Venezuelan's Sexy Bodyguard (Harlequin Presents)
Justin Verlander in Bring the Heat (Harlequin Blaze)
Prince Fielder in Daddy Doesn't Love Me (Harlequin SuperRomance)
Phil Coke in Good Time Phil (Harlequin Kiss)
Austin Jackson in Action Jackson (Harlequin Desire)
Victor Martinez in The Single Dad's Home Run (Harlequin Special Edition)
Six players, and Prince Fielder is the only one not on the current roster (having been traded to the Texas Rangers in the off-season). At this rate I might run out of players - just not this year. So sit back, relax and get ready to enjoy a return to my insanity all this week. Same rules as last year - I'll take a kernel of truth about the players, mix in an exorbitant amount of fiction, and viola! Four new players, four new stories, all new lines. And yes, y'all are getting a secret baby this year.....
