Here’s a teaser for ROOKIE OF THE YEAR.
Alicia Santos knows she shouldn’t be tempted by the team’s new rookie catcher. . .
But Joe Fernandez isn’t just your average baseball player. He’s a potential rookie of the year with amazing skills on the field. Smart, sexy and determined, he’s fought hard for everything in his life and Alicia appreciates that kind of focus. But she’s older and wiser, or so she thinks, until Joe sets his sights on winning her over off the field. . .
Joe Fernandez has never backed down from a challenge . . .
Especially when it’s a woman like his team’s beautiful trainer. He doesn’t mind that she’s older or stubbornly refusing to give into her attraction for him. He’s a patient man and little by little he wears away her resistance.
Nights spent together are glorious and forbidden . . .
Alicia and Joe work hard to keep their personal and professional lives apart to avoid problems on the baseball field. When a career-ending injury threatens their newfound love, Alicia and Joe must find the strength to rebuild Joe’s body and restore balance to their lives.
I love baseball and I loved being able to write some books with baseball player heroes. The first book, ROOKIE OF THE YEAR, is now available at various retailers. The second book, A WINNING SEASON, will be out in November! So exciting!
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR is, as you may guess from the title, the story of Joe Fernandez, a young rookie on a fictional NJ expansion baseball team. Joe is a hot shot catcher who is attracted to the team’s female trainer. Besides the issues with the two of them working together, the trainer, Alicia Santos, is a number of years older. The age difference bothers Alicia a lot, but not Joe. He’s determined to find out more about the sexy trainer and prove to her that he’s interested in something more permanent than a one night stand.
My thoughts are still with baseball right now as my Metties make a pitch for the post-season! Starting to get worried. I hope they don’t blow it like they did in 2007 and 2008. After I cried as they lost the last game at Shea, I framed my 2008 Divisional Playoff tickets for the playoff that wasn’t going to happen.
Anyway, today’s hottie is Charlie Culberson from the Colorado Rockies. Charlie is an outfielder/second baseman and sadly, in May of this year, he hit a pinch hit walk off two run homerun off one of the New York Mets closers. That gave the Rockies an 11-10 win over the Mets. Sigh.
I love baseball which is what led me to write two baseball-themed books that you’ll see later in the year as part of the Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance series. I love the strategy of the game. I love that you can be any height or size to play. I love the uniforms, especially on cuties like David Wright.
Last night I got to go to the Mets-Phillies game with my daughter and here are some photos for you! But before I go – It’s also the release day for the Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance Series #1. If you like sensual and emotional stories, I think you’ll like these novels with sexy heroes, smart women, and a glimpse of some very different parts of New Jersey! You can order the box set here:
It’s that time of year when a young woman’s mind turns to thoughts of sexy men in tight baseball uniforms! LOL! Yes, it’s baseball season and my Mets are at .500. Hoping for that and more this year!
Today’s Man Candy is one of the boys of summer: Grady Sizemore. Grady started his MLB career for the Cleveland Indians, but was signed by the Phillies for the 2015 season. Grady is a three-time All-Star choice, has won two Golden Gloves, and a Silver Slugger award.
A lot of writers will tell you they have a playlist of songs in their head as they are creating their story.
Not me. I’m totally into the stories and characters on their own and it isn’t until after that I can match up songs with them.
For sure that’s the story with JUST ONE NIGHT, my contribution to the ONE NIGHT ONLY #Erotic #Romance anthology.
The initial inspiration for Jase, the hero in the story, came from my days at Villanova and awareness of the ROTC program there. It was always lovely to see the men and women in dress uniforms on campus and at other events.
The Jersey Shore location is thanks to my love of that area, but also because I grew up close to the water and spent a lot of time at the beach. I remember driving to Jones Beach, listening to the Beach Boys and later as a teen, to songs like this one by Don Henley. Actually, this is probably my anthem for my days on the shore and Jase is definitely a “Boy of Summer” for the heroine, Nicole.
It’s that kind of Monday and one piece of Man Candy is not enough! I need a whole handful of deliciousness and since it’s my favorite time of year – BASEBALL season – I’m sharing with you a bunch of handsome Boys of Summer. Just click here to check them out!
However, I must take exception to some notable exclusions from the list!
What no David Wright, Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee? Seriously, how can you not like this cuteness?
