My sports romance novella, Defending the Net (DTN) is being released on 11/10/18. Today, I will be introducing the cast of DTN. Because this is a spoiler-free post, not all cast members will be introduced. The reason being is that I would be unable to effectively discuss any of them without giving away key plot points. I’ll begin the introductions with the MC and leading man, Brighton Rabalais.
Brighton Rabalais, or Bry as he is called by his closest friends, is a rookie goalie, newly recruited to the Saint Anne Civet hockey franchise. He’s a first-round draft pick with loads of talent and a humble heart. All he wants is to play hockey. His confidence is swayed, not by a lack of talent, but due to the politics behind his recruitment. It’s dirty. He’s there to undermine payment negotiations with veteran goalie, Gatien Glesseau.
Gatien Glesseau is a three-time national champion with good looks, great moves, and a bite every bit as severe as his growl. He’s able to turn on and off his emotions quicker than most blink. His goal (literally) is to be treated fairly, but he understands that’s a slim chance of happening with Brighton in the Brighton. Gatien is handsome, smart, and some years older than Brighton. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t learn things from his junior. It also means his Brighton is a real threat.
Next up is Semien Metoyér, the Civets center, and Brighton’s best friend since college. Semien is a type of enigma to the hockey stereotype with his mild-manner, clean-cut, and non-foul mouth. One might mistake him for a video gamer than a hockey player—though they’d be very wrong. Already in the national league, Semien is sure to have Brighton’s back.
Dylan is Brighton’s roommate and the antithesis of Brighton. While Brighton is quiet and humble, Dylan is boisterous and breaming with confidence to the point of arrogance. Not only is he the opposite in personality, but physically he’s much smaller—shorter, thinner, and not very strong.
Dr. Janesen is Brighton’s warmhearted, nurturing, down-to-earth physician. She tells it like it is. Although always professional, she cares deeply for Brighton as if he were a member of her family.
Christophe Fortenot is the team’s captain and might as well say, the welcoming committee. Team members follow Christophe’s lead. Therefore, having his acceptance is necessary and more important than the owners. Christophe is … well, Christophe. He has his own flare.
Finally, Nicco Bale is another veteran player. On the ice, Nicco adds power and muscle to the team. Off the ice, he’s a bit of a busybody and instigator. However, he means no harm, and characters tend to laugh when he around … sometimes. Nicco doesn’t take himself seriously, and that works for him. But he’s more complex than he seems.
And that’s it for the cast. Read about them all in DTN.
