Women are already throwing themselves at his feet, but Robert only has eyes for his manager, Marisol. He’s a gentleman on the street, pure alpha between the sheets, and determined to show the all-business Marisol that romance is alive and well and good men are even better when they’re given permission to be bad.
--DIAMONDS AND DUST (Pike)
Pike Sherman is a legend in Lonesome Point, a hometown boy who made it to the big leagues. Literally.

After a few days back in Lonesome Point, Pike can't imagine life without Tulsi, the girl he left behind, but when Tulsi's secret is revealed, his heart is broken all over again. The only thing worse than losing the woman he loved, is losing six years with the daughter he didn't know he had.
