Gold Medal Hero

Reporter Bailey Stoddart’s been threatened with dismissal. The only way to avoid the calamity is to write a high profile story, so who better to interview than the darling of the national rowing squad, Olympic Gold Medal winner Connor Freeman?

Except Connor doesn’t give interviews. At least, not since the euphoria from his Olympic win faded and left him with only minimum interest in his sport. He needs a shot of enthusiasm before training starts again or risk being replaced. What if Bailey – gorgeous Bailey – could revive his passion, in more than one way? A little persuasion, a little pampering, a few rewards, and… anything could happen.

Couldn’t it?


Jena writes sweet, heart-warming romances set in her home country of New Zealand. Gold Medal Hero is the first book in her Hero series.

About Jena’s Writing

Most of the stories I write are contemporary romances, splattered with conflict before the hero and heroine resolve their differences and realize and confess their love.

The characters are ordinary, everyday people, living normal lives and facing problems that any single person might face in today’s world.

There are stories where the hero antagonizes the heroine and she finds herself battling against the odds, trying to prove her worth and the strength of her convictions.

Sometimes the characters have met earlier in their lives. Now they’ve changed, their circumstances are different and they find love where it never was before.

Some stories involve kids, helping or hindering the budding romance.

The conflict and the way the characters react will keep you guessing until near the end of the story, wondering how these two will ever resolve their differences.
