When sensible schoolteacher Ella Lucas rides into her home town on a Harley and seduces the resident football hero, Jake Prince, she figures she can be forgiven and move on. After all, she's just buried her mother. Winner of the ARRA 2013 Favourite Contemporary Fiction Award

Two years later, back in the city, their paths cross again but this time Jake is in the process of destroying her favourite dive bar. With her home facing a wrecker's ball, her school being closed down and her 15-year-old brother hell bent on self-destruction, it's the last straw. Throw in a dominatrix best friend who is dating a blue ribbon guy so straight he still lives at home with his mother, it's no wonder the sanest person in Ella's life is a dog.

With all this to contend with, the last thing Ella needs is Jake back in her life. But, as fate would have it, Jake is the only chance she has to save her school.

As the school football season heats up, old secrets threaten to surface and Ella takes on greedy developers, school boards and national tabloids. But can she save not just her home, her school and her brother, but also the reputation of the man she's never been able to forget? And, more importantly, does she want to?

Holding Out for a Hero is a quirky, heartwarming tale of unlikely romance, friendship and family.

Finalist in Romance Writers of Australia Ruby (Romantic Book of the Year) Award 2014

From the Author:

I absolutely adored my gorgeous quirky cast of characters in this Aussie romcom. Set in a big city with a real small town feel, Holding Out For a Hero has a sports theme - football -  as well as quirk, heart and humour.

It's a story about misfits and underdogs and finding family in the last place you expect to. I hope you'll be cheering the gang along as they fight to win and fall in love along the way!

From the Inside Flap:

Some favourite reader quotes -

"No buts, Cam. Men just don't talk to women like that. That's the number one rule, mate. Are you a man or a boy? This is where you decide."

"Ella felt a rush of heat and beat it back, deciding to change tack. "You do know that abstinence doesn't kill people, right?" God knew she'd have been dead a long time ago.
Jake nodded. "It sure makes them mighty pissed off though."

"The way she was going, she'd have the tightest pelvis floor around. Which could be a plus. At least when they shut her school down she's be able to get a job as an exotic dancer firing ping pong balls out of her twat."

"Ella had seen enough of them over the years to recognize that if any one group of women could use a bit of gratuitous eye candy from time to time, it was mothers. And Jake certainly didn't disappoint. The man was simply mouthwatering. He was like the Lindt chocolate of eye candy. The Ferrero Rocher. The Tim Tam. Ella could practically feel the fat cells on her ass multiplying as her mouth watered."
