For the Love of Football

"It Had to Be You" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Once upon a time I was sitting in my car, mesmerized by the thing on the radio, well in my CD player anyway. It was Susan Elizabeth Phillips's (SEP) first book in her Chicago Stars series "It Had to Be You." Then I read every single one of those titles until I caught up. I don't even claim to understand football, but I was willing to look up terminology and pester my husband until I understood what the heck they were talking about. So I was looking for another series just like this one, and I think I found it!

A few years ago I was trolling the back, way back discussion boards of SEP's website when I found an aspiring writer trying to get her book published. Recently I meandered onto "Romantic Times" site where I was excited to see her again! I can say I knew her (virtually) when she wasn't almost famous, but I know she will be. Julie Brannagh debuts her Seattle Sharks novel "Blitzing Emily" in 2013, available in ebook format. Her second book in the series "Love and Football" was a 2011 Golden Heart Finalist. Watch out for this one!
