PITTSBURGH - October 9, 2012 -'The Cruiserweight's Daughter,' the second long-awaited novel in author L. Anne Carrington's 'The Cruiserweight' series, was released to the public October 9 as an Amazon Kindle ebook.
"This book centers around Autumn Kerrigan, daughter of Karen and Brett from the first 'Cruiserweight' novel," Ms. Carrington said. "I wanted to focus on her wrestling training and the three most important men in her life - both personal and professional - in addition to her father. The sexual and romance scenes are somewhat more tame and occur less often than in 'The Cruiserweight' (Night Publishing, 2010), but I believe 'The Cruiserweight's Daughter' has more of a variety of characters and subplots."
'The Cruiserweight's Daughter' book description reads as "Autumn is now the grown-up daughter of retired cruiserweight superstar Brett Kerrigan, but in the love stakes she's a heavyweight.
She is searching for two things: success as a wrestler, just like her father, and for the intoxication of intimacy – she longs for an injection of the real love her parents share for each other. Several failed relationships leave her disillusioned and alone.
Three men each play a prominent role in Autumn's pursuit of professional and personal success: Peter Klass, a retired cruiserweight legend determined to help make Autumn a star while trying to reconcile his own personal and professional lives, Mike Stackhouse, the fellow student wrestler who wins Autumn's heart while on the edge of stardom with International, the world's largest stage in professional wrestling, and Marcus Tucker, Brett's personal assistant, the shining star of Peter's cruiserweight class, and one of Autumn's closest friends – and confidant – who once harbored a crush on her.
One night following the graduation show at Brett's academy, the lives of Autumn and one of these men took a turn no one expected – yet affected those around them who cared the most.
Will her relationship with Mike survive the pressures of both their budding careers and that
Or will she once again be a singles performer in the romance division?"
