I write exactly what I love to read, and Breaking Cage is no different. If you’re a die-hard romance reader like me, check out the top ten facts about Breaking Cage, and make Derek and Hannah and their irresistible love story your next one-click.
10) JAW DROPPING COVER
Have you seen the cover for Breaking Cage? I’ve always loved Scott Hoover photos and swore one day I’d have one of his models on the cover of one of my books. That day has arrived and thanks to Hang Le, the cover is exactly what I would one-click on visuals alone: a set of ripped abs, a striking color, a mysterious vibe.
9) EPIC LOVE STORY
Meet Derek Cage, an enigmatic NFL quarterback whose privacy is sheathed in armor, and Hannah Black, a rookie reporter determined to get Derek’s story. Their attraction is immediate, but they’re fighting a losing battle trying to deny it. As with all great love stories, these two fall, and they fall hard. It seems like a fairytale . . . until it becomes their worst nightmare.
8) MURDER MYSTERY
Okay, so this isn’t in the recipe for all romance novels, but Breaking Cage is a romantic suspense, and when Derek Cage’s past is revealed, so is a decade old murder that is directly linked to this superstar hottie. Could Hannah have just given her heart to a cold-hearted murderer?
Just when you think you have Breaking Cage figured out, a twist will throw you off course and make you question everything you thought you knew.
6) WITTY BANTER
One of my favorite parts of every romance read and the most challenging to write is witty banter between the two lead characters. Derek is aloof, he’s private, and the last thing he wants or needs is Hannah Black digging into his past. But when she comes up with off the wall questions and a funny and light-hearted approach to grab his attention, Derek can’t stay away.
Derek is the youngest member of the Cage dynasty, a high profile family famous for their political accomplishments and far-reaching power, created by unmatched wealth. But, as with every political family, secrets, lies, and deceit are embedded in the structure of who they are, and this Illinois family is no different. The question in Breaking Cage is if Hannah can free Derek from the web of lies his family has encased him in or is he doomed to a life of seclusion and secrecy?
4) ALL THE FEELS
Breaking Cage has it all. You will fall in love with a hot athlete and a bright and witty heroine. You will laugh out loud with them, your heart will break simultaneously, and then you will fall in love alongside them.
3) LOVABLE HEROINE

Athletes love to see their name up in lights, they love the attention of the crowd, thrive on victory, the notoriety of their names. Getting Derek Cage to talk should be easy, or so she thought.
From their first encounter, Derek makes it clear that Hannah’s not getting his story. Wrapped up in his devastatingly good looks, and rock solid body, Hannah’s not prepared to take on the superstar athlete. But as the weeks slowly pass, and she learns more about the elusive quarterback, Hannah finds a way to break through that stone exterior, uncovering a man hidden from the rest of society.
2) HOT ATHLETE
Escaping from a past characterized by heartbreak and deceit, Derek rebels against the Cage name becoming an NFL quarterback and building walls impossible to penetrate. Having watched a public persona destroy everything he’s loved in life, he despises the media and makes sure everyone around him knows it . . . until he meets Hannah Black
