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.
You can get ROOKIE OF THE YEAR at the following retailers:

I have to confess that I really love Rafe from STAY THE NIGHT and since many of you don’t do Facebook, you’ll have missed him during last week’s #ManWars so I’m sharing him with you today.
What I love about Rafe is that he’s a big strong Navy Seal and seemingly invincible and yet inside, he’s so vulnerable and so in love, but battling it out of fear of being rejected. He feels as if he’s been left behind in the five years that he’s been at war while his wife has become someone whom he barely recognizes.
I also loved tackling a story where the romance is about two people who are already married. Let’s face it. Marriages have ups and downs and you can fall in love all over again sometimes.
You’ll see more of Rafe and his wife Elena in ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE that I hope to have out for you in mid-February. That is if I can get past post-holiday blues and work issues. I’ve been outlining the story and hashing out some language with my daughter. She liked what she heard, so I hope that’s a good thing.
In the meantime, I hope you like sexy Navy Seal Rafe.
Today we’re doing a shout out to Jersey Boy Mike Trout! Mike plays for the Angels (who knows what city they are really in!) and was named the 2012 American League Rookie of the Year and won a Silver Slugger Award! You go, Mike!
2013 was another awesome year for Mike when he again won the Silver Slugger Award and finished second in the voting for American League MVP.
Mike was born in Vineland, NJ and attended Milville High School in NJ. That’s why his nickname is the “Milville Meteor”, especially since Mike also had a league record for stolen bases in 2012.
