I never know whether to torture you early with blurbs for books that won’t be out for almost a year, or whether to wait awhile. This is the book I’m writing at the moment for Berkley Heat, and having tons of fun with these characters. I’m torturing them, they’re torturing me, so I figured I’d torture you, too. :giggle:

THE PERFECT PLAY. Berkley Heat. February, 2011

Football pro Mick Riley is an all-star, both on the field and in the bedroom. But a sexy, determinedly single mom just might be the one to throw him off his game…

For years Mick has been taking full advantage of the life available to a pro athlete: fame, fortune, and a different girl in every city. But when he meets and beds confident, beautiful event planner Tara Lincoln, he wants much more than the typical one-night stand. Too bad Tara’s not interested in getting to know football’s most notorious playboy any better.

As the single mother of a teenage son, the last thing Tara needs is the jet-set lifestyle of Mick Riley; even though their steamy and passionate one-night stand was unforgettable. Tara’s life is complicated enough without being thrust into the spotlight as Mick’s latest girl du jour. Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and she doesn’t intend to put herself out there again, especially with a heartbreaker like Mick.

But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind.


This is the first book in my new sports series. Tell me what you think.
