Release Date:
April 19, 2022
Christian Contemporary Romance

Trinity Knight is not a fan of professional wrestling. But with her husband gone, it falls to her to give their son the father-son trip they daydreamed about when he was alive. After Trinity causes them to miss a meet and greet with Jay’s favorite wrestler, a random act of kindness saves the trip and starts Trinity on an unexpected path.

Universal Wrestling Organization Champion Blane Sterling hears whiny children at photo ops all the time. However, overhearing a young boy comfort his mother piques his interest. Touched by their story, Blane works with the UWO Public Relations team to give Jay the experience of a lifetime. As they learn each other’s stories, Trinity and Blane are drawn to each other. 

But they don’t just come from different states. They live in different worlds. Trinity might learn to fit into his life, but can those in her world look beyond Blane’s profession to see his heart? Or will a lack of acceptance cause Trinity and Blane to lose their shot at love?

Excerpt from Love in the Squared Circle

Blane fastened the heavy belt around Jay’s waist and watched him preen and pose in the dressing room mirror. Stopping suddenly, Jay frowned into the glass before turning to Trinity.

“I need to take off my shirt,” he announced.

“And why is that?” Trinity looked skeptical.

“Mom,” he said with a roll of his eyes. “You know why. This is wrestling.”

“I don’t know, Jay,” she reasoned. “I may not have watched with you and your dad, but I think I’ve seen wrestlers with their shirts on.”

“They may start the match with a shirt, but they always come off by the end. Especially the champion. He doesn’t ever wear a shirt. You can ask Blane. He’ll tell you. Please, Mom.”

“Don’t drag me into this.” Blane threw up his hands in surrender.

A momentary look of disappointment was aimed at him before Jay’s attention returned to Trinity. “Please. Can I? I’ve got to look like a pro.”

Trinity rubbed her lips together, and Blane had the sneaking suspicion it was intended to stifle a laugh. But would Jay’s persistence pay off?

“Fine. Hand it here.”

With his shirt removed, Jay once more began to strut in front of the mirror. The child’s powers of persuasion were impressive. As Blane watched her using her phone to take pictures of Jay looking like a real wrestler, Blane doubted that if Jay asked for the moon, she wouldn’t make it happen.

Author Interview with Heather Greer

What was the inspiration behind Love in the Squared Circle?

Heather: The inspiration was two-fold. The biblical inspiration was the story of David. He wasn’t what was expected for the king, but God looked beyond the physical to his heart. I believe that’s what we should each strive for. The character of Blane and his career as a professional wrestler came from the biography of Shawn Michaels, a professional wrestler who is also a man of faith. The biography was all about his journey to find a relationship with God.

Q: How long did it take you to write this story?

Heather: From idea to publication, it probably took me nine to twelve months of focused writing. It’s actually the first book I wrote without working full-time outside of writing. Because of that, it didn’t take as long.

Q: Do you have a favorite quote from this book?

Heather: “That’s the most amazing part. God needs each story.”

It’s amazing to me how not one person is an extra. God weaves all our stories together to show His truth and love to those who need it most.

Q: What do you hope readers take away from Love in the Squared Circle?

Heather: I hope readers come away from Trinity and Blane’s story with encouragement to look beyond what’s obvious to see people the way God sees them. I pray they come away more open to getting to know those who might challenge their ideas of what a Christian looks like and learning how God is working in their lives.

Q: Would you share something about yourself that most readers would not know?

Heather: I’m pretty open about what I like and don’t like. But I was at a writer’s conference last week, and I found out there is something about me that is apparently surprising. I have never been on a plane, train, or boat.

Q: What are you reading now?

Heather: Rocky Mountain Rendezvous by Misty M. Beller is at the top of my TBR list.

Q: How many bookcases are in your home?

Heather: Fifteen. But I have to be completely honest. I have two filled with crafting supplies, one with DVDs, one with shoes, and one with all my television and movie related collectibles. So, I only have, at most, ten filled with books. Oh, and one of those is filled with journals.

Q: What is your favorite thing about being a writer?

Heather: I love that God has allowed me to use something I enjoy so much to share His truth with others. Reading Christian fiction has always encouraged and challenged me in my faith, and I’m blessed God has allowed me the opportunity to do the same.

Q: What do you like to do when you are not writing?

Heather: I love all things crafty. I got a Cricut for Christmas and am learning how to do all sorts of cool things. I make cards and any other craft that catches my eye. I also enjoy baking and decorating cakes. And I love spending time with my husband, kids, and three grandkids.
