Personal and professional goals intersect in this sports romance by author Michele Lenard.

The world sees a millionaire playboy, but she sees me. How can my total opposite read me better than I read defenses?

Colt – Life tackled me when I wasn’t looking. One minute I’m in the zone, preparing for what I hope will be another winning season. The next I’m struggling to keep my focus on the game instead of the prim and proper beauty my agent hired to help me plan for life after football. Usually women flock to me, but this one I have to chase, and I can tell she won’t be easy to win. That doesn’t scare me. It terrifies me. I’ve disappointed every woman I’ve ever known by putting the game first, and now that I found something I want more than another ring, I’m not sure I’m man enough to win off the field.

Samantha – I’m no stranger to overbearing men. In my line of work they come with the territory, and I’ve been around long enough to hold my own. That’s why the cocky football player with a reputation for scoring on and off the field is such a surprise. On the surface he’s the kind of guy who could ruin my credibility, but when he sets his focus on me, he lets me see the person behind the persona, and it’s someone I respect. Like even. I swore never to mix business with pleasure, but the perfectly imperfect ball player is hard to resist, which begs the question; is he worth breaking my one and only rule?

Thoroughly Innocent Intent is written as book five in the Mile High Romance Collection, though it can be read as a stand-alone. It contains a lovably flawed athlete and a sheltered businesswoman with a heart of gold, as well as a colorful cast of characters who help these two opposites find common ground.


Burying my nose in a book is one of my favorite pastimes!

While I love everything from suspense to fantasy, chick-lit to historical fiction, my go-to genre is romance. However, I had trouble finding stories that gave equal weight to both the emotional and physical aspects of the relationship.

I like steamy stories, but I like the steam to be accompanied by emotion, not just lust.

Though a handful of authors have achieved this balance, more often than not I find that stories give more weight to either the emotional component or the sexual component.

I’d like to fill this void with romances that are both sweet and steamy, transporting readers into the mind of my characters so that you fall in love with them as they fall in love with each other.

Emotional transportation is a term used to describe one’s ability to “transport” oneself into another’s shoes, as readers often do. Emotional Transportation sums up what reading means to me. I love when a book doesn’t just entertain, but imprints itself on me in some way. I hope my books have that effect on you.

Shh… it’s a secret.

Was it a lapse in judgment or cosmic intervention?

Nic and Kaylee shared an epic one-night stand. We’re talking up against the wall, ice cubes, genie in a bottle, epic.

Now they’re forced to spend a week together at his sister’s wedding. How are they going to keep a lid on their physical attraction? The hardwood floors are buckling beneath them as he gives her a simple whispering kiss across the swell of her lips. Neither can breathe before Nic walks away.

Soon, they’re both catching feelings, but Nic Mancini doesn’t know how to be in a relationship. He’s hot—pick your tongue up off the floor hot. He’s a television sports announcer with the world at his feet. However, Nic has a secret too painful to reveal and an ex-girlfriend who haunts him.

Kaylee’s a wannabe fashion designer working in a couture boutique. She’s everyone’s “go-to girl” because she would give you the clothes off her back. Still reeling from her ex’s betrayal, she knows it’s a risk, taking the leap with commitment-phobe Nic, but it’s one worth taking.

That is, until photos leak of Nic, shattering her trust and breaking her not yet mended heart. Then, when she confronts him, his heart rips once again as his secret erupts from the depths of his throat, leaving Kaylee confounded.

Nic says, “Kaylee, I’ll give you what you want tonight, but tomorrow, I’m walking away…for good.”
