From the Author
Hot, buff, Aussie rugby dudes running around being all macho wasn't exactly a hard task and I hope you love all the ensemble cast of the Sydney Smoke - Dexter, Lincoln, Bodie, Ryder and Donovan. They'll all eventually get their own books too. As will Valerie, the coach's daughter, and Griff, the big grizzled hardass coach himself with a heart of stone and a tragic backstory that'll have you rooting so hard for his HEA!
So, buckle up for some hot times Down Under.
Yes, that is a total euphemism :-)
