Hottie Hero: Ty Madsen, Trouble with Gold by Melinda Dozier
On the enormous television, Ty prepared himself, tightening his helmet under his chin, his longer hair curling over the edges and around his ears. He wore all white, ski pants, a long-sleeved white tunic with the Olympics logo on the front and a huge US flag on the shoulder.
Nadia smiled to herself as he placed his iPod ear buds into his ears and goggles over his eyes. Deep breaths caused his chest to rise and fall and it reminded her of when he kissed her last – his dark eyes on hers and that naughty smile. She bit her lip, excited to see him in action, but at the same time nervous for him. This could make or break a medal for him.
Enter Ty (Trouble) Madsen from Love and Other Games: Trouble with Gold. A badass, snowboarder from Colorado about to embark on his chance for Gold at the Winter Olympics in Switzerland. Trouble is a hot athlete, muscled, active, and playful. Not only that, but he’s known for his pranks at the X-games and now the Olympics Village. Given the right amount of attention from one sexy Swiss volunteer demonstrates that he’s not always a ladies’ man. Once he sets his eyes on his goal, be it a medal or a woman, he strives to reach it. He’ll do anything and everything to prove his love for his sport and for the woman he loves.
When I began writing this prankster snowboarder, I researched (because I don’t know the first thing about snowboarding), and found US snowboarder Louie Vito. He was cute, fun, always smiling and exactly what I wanted in a hottie hero. It’s always fun to find men for research purposes (*cough *cough), and as Ty developed, I knew he was the absolute best Hottie Hero for my uptight heroine Nadia. Ever heard of the old saying, “Opposites attract?”
Meet Ty and Nadia in Trouble With Gold and get ready for the upcoming Winter Olympics!

US snowboarder and notorious prankster, Ty (Trouble) Madsen is only getting a taste of his own medicine when his Olympic teammates shackle him to a fence wearing nothing but his boxers. Reception and protocol volunteer, Nadia Hoffman, gets up close and personal with the sexy snowboarder to rescue him, but she’s not the kind of girl who lets her hormones get in her way. A professional performance could help her land her dream job at Olympics Committee Headquarters, but her new assignment supervising the rambunctious US Snowboarding Team is making that difficult. Can she see behind the snowman in the community center bathroom and into the warm heart of the man everyone calls Trouble?
“Thank God you’re here,” a male’s voice groaned, in English.
Nadia looked across the path toward the stairs ahead of her and saw a very well built, tall man, light brown hair curled around his beanie, with a chiseled chest and tight thighs. Wait a minute. Why could she see his chest and thighs? It was zero degrees Celsius. Why would a man be standing in nothing but his underwear? Her mother always warned her about sickos.
She dug into her purse, searching for her mace – something she carried since her internship in New York last summer. It settled somewhere at the bottom. Great. When she finally needed it, she couldn’t find it.
“Do you mind?” He said, a little louder. “I could use some help.”
“I have mace.” She answered, still searching. “Stay where you are.”
“Not a problem.” He laughed, a deep laugh that sent tingly sensations from head to toe. God, sleep deprivation must be worse than she thought if she had these thoughts about a sicko.
She shook her head and finally held the mace up. The man remained in the same spot. He had a fabulous smile and a few wrinkles at the side of his eyes, from smiling or being out in the sun. He must be an athlete with that tight physique. “Who are you and what are you doing?”
Instead of answering, he let out a laugh all while his teeth chattered. An ache sat in her throat. Poor guy. If his blue lips and frosted hair was any indication, he was beyond cold.
“Are you okay?” She slowly approached the stairs, not sure what the handsome man would do. But, he looked like he was in trouble.
His eyes perused her from top to bottom and then he looked back into her face. “Better now.” He smirked.
