Red Zone Blog Tour: Guest Post from Sherri Hayes & International Giveaway

It's no secret that I'm a massive fan of Sherri Hayes' Finding Anna series, it was one of my favourite discoveries of 2012 and I can't wait to get my hands on the third book, Truth, later this year. Anyway, as a fan of Sherri's writing I jumped at the chance of taking part of the blog tour for Red Zone, the second book in Sherri's Daniels Brothers series. I really enjoyed the first book, Behind Closed Doors (read my review here) and I loved Gage's story even more (watch out for my full review which will be posted later today UPDATE - you can now read my Red Zone review here)!

Before I hand over to Sherri who is going to tell you a little more about our leading man Gage I want to share a bit more information about the book:

After a case ended badly for Rebecca Carson, she’s losing her mind sitting around her apartment waiting on her superiors to allow her to return to work. Since she was a teenager, the only thing she’d ever wanted was to join the FBI. Now that dream was in danger.

Gage Daniels has made a pretty good life for himself. A nice house. A career he loves. As a professional football player, he’s used to getting almost everything he’d ever want with just the snap of his fingers. This includes women. A well-timed smile is usually all it takes to attract the opposite sex, especially in Nashville.

When a stalker threatens Gage, the team owner calls an old friend, Rebecca’s ex-partner Travis Hansen, to help protect his star quarterback and find the person responsible. Hansen offers Rebecca the job, and she jumps at the chance. It’s work, and it will get her out of her apartment. How bad can it be?

Posing as Gage’s girlfriend, however, isn’t as easy as it seems. The man is relentless. Rebecca must work to protect Gage while staving off his advances. She’s there to do a job, nothing more. The last thing she wants is to be another notch on a hotshot athlete’s belt.

As the stalker continues to up the ante, Rebecca finds it harder and harder to keep her distance from Nashville’s star quarterback. He isn’t what she expected in one of the city’s most notorious playboys. Now all she has to do is keep him safe until they can find his stalker, and hope she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.

Now I'm sure you're all dying to learn more about Gage so please give a warm welcome to Sherri so she can tell you all about him!

Character Profile: Gage Daniels

Gage is the baby of the family at twenty-six. He’s also a star quarterback. Both of these things mean that he has no problem with being the center of attention. His mother raised him right, however, and while he is a little on the cocky side, he is also a gentleman.

One of my favorite things about Gage is that no matter how full of himself he seems, he’s never mean, and he doesn’t tear down others to get what he wants. He’s confident in his abilities, and isn’t afraid to let others around him know it. Who doesn’t like a confident man who goes after what he wants in life?

His confidence spills over into his love for women. Being a professional football star, he has women throwing themselves at him regularly. He has a bit of a reputation as a ladies man. Although he’s not averse to settling down one of these days, he’s not in a hurry, and he has no intention of turning down what is offered.

Gage’s first love is football, and he counts himself lucky to be able to play professionally. He enjoys swimming, and spending time with his family. This sexy athlete is also playful, and enjoys letting loose and having fun.


So what do you think of Gage? Does he sound like your kind of hero? Trust me, he made me look at footballers (just to clarify for my fellow Brit's we're talking about the American kind in this case!) in a whole new light :o)
