This morning the wonderfully fun Robin Bielman is paying us a visit and she’s talking about why her newest hero is extra sexy, then she shares about her new book. I had the pleasure of getting an advance copy (thanks Robin!) and I have to say it is fantastic … but I’m a little biased because I loved the earlier books in the series. And I definitely agree that rescue paramedics are hot, especially Mr Troy.
I’ve also included my review below so once you take a peek at Wild About Her Wingman make sure you check it out too.
Hi Julie! Thanks so much for having me here on Romantic Reads and Such. I’m so happy to be visiting with you and your readers and be a guest blogger today.
In my latest Secret Wishes novel, WILD ABOUT HER WINGMAN, my hero Troy is a rescue paramedic. He’s passionate about helping people, about keeping them safe. When it comes to Erin, the girl he’s playing wingman and matchmaker for—and the girl he continually butts heads with—he’ll do what’s right for her. Even if it means ignoring the fact that she makes him feel things he swore to keep at bay.
Troy’s an outdoor junkie who loves the adrenaline rush of rock climbing and sky diving, but he’s also the do-good boy next door who plays it safe. A guy I hope readers will fall in love. In fact, I think there are lots of good reasons to love rescue paramedics.
Six Reasons to Love Rescue Paramedics
- They put others before themselves. These guys have no fear and will protect at any cost. They don’t panic in an emergency and are quick-thinking. Never give up, is their motto.
- Green is their favorite Lifesaver candies color. (Get it? Life savers. hee hee)
- They are experts in the area of mouth-to-mouth. 🙂
- Paramedics know life is precious and shouldn’t be taken for granted, so they live life to the fullest. They’ll take you on the greatest adventure of your life and they understand the importance of partnership and commitment.
- These guys are Safety Studs and can help you danger-proof your life. They’re also wickedly good with first aid. Cut your finger? A paramedic will treat your wound and then kiss you to make it all better.
- They have strong hands. Strong everything, really. They’re physically up to any task you throw at them. And they always maintain their, um, equipment.
So there you have it, my reasons to adore rescue paramedics. What’s one of your favorite qualities in a romance hero?
Wild About Her Wingman
By Robin Bielman
Playing it safe never felt so risky.
Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…
As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.
Robin Bielman lives in Southern California with her high school sweetheart husband, two sons, and crazy-cute mini Labradoodle, Harry. When not attached to her laptop, she can almost always be found with her nose in a book. She also likes to run, hike, and dip her toes in the ocean. Filled with wanderlust, she longs to visit many different places and fulfill her curiosity. She wouldn’t mind indulging her sweet tooth in every location either. She’s a lover of sticky notes, cable television shows and café mochas. Writing is a dream come true, and she still pinches herself to be sure it’s real.
Her Secret Wishes series includes Kissing the Maid of Honor and Her Accidental Boyfriend. Her other novels include Worth the Risk, Risky Surrender and Yours At Midnight. She loves to connect with readers. Learn more and sign up for her newsletter on her website at http://robinbielman.com.

The newest in Bielman’s “Secret Wishes” series, Wild About Her Wingman, is just as sweet and touching and engaging as Kissing the Maid of Honor and Her Accidental Boyfriend. Although it is not necessary to have read these books first, I loved them so much that I highly recommend it. Bielman delivers touching stories with a charming, witty style that makes them seem light-hearted at first but you quickly realize they have an amazing emotional depth that keeps you glued to the pages.
If you have read the previous stories, you know that we’ve met Erin and Troy before and that this trip to a HEA was inevitable. (Again, it isn’t necessary to have read those stories, you’ll easily keep up.) Erin is a bit of a daredevil on the outside but on the inside she’s very afraid to give her heart to a man. And for Troy, a tragedy in his past has convinced him that he needs a more down to earth partner. Both of them have very real and very understandable reasons for thinking a relationship between the two won’t work, but of course the heart has other plans.
These two have to be a couple of my favorite characters. Erin could have easily been unlikeable – she’s somewhat prickly and seriously confident and a little wild (although never reckless) and very closed off – but Bielman makes her very sympathetic and compelling. She’s complex and troubled but through the love of her friends and family she starts to open up more. Troy’s past has created a man who thinks he needs to play it safe and Erin definitely isn’t safe. He’s sweet, caring, funny and sexy. The interactions between the two as they slowly allow themselves to act on their attraction are deliciously fun and the ending brought a smile to my face as they finally figured out how they could get that HEA they both want so bad.
Entangled Publishing wants their Bliss line of books to be uplifting and heartwarming, reflecting the romantic troubles of modern couples, and I think that Wild About Her Wingman does it perfectly. Focusing on two compelling people, with a cast of engaging secondary characters, smart dialogue, and a riveting story, Bielman delivers another winner. She’s definitely going on my Not To Be Missed list.
