A hot contemporary baseball romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

 Even good girls break the rules…sometimes!

Actress Lindsey Ormond has always followed the rules: be nice, keep quiet, and never, ever get involved with a bad boy.  But her good behavior has yielded lousy results—she’s been left at the altar for the second time in two years.


Raleigh Rockets center fielder Ryan Green keeps life simple—play ball, have fun, and keep an eye on his recently widowed father.  When Ryan attends Lindsey's disaster of a wedding, another sizzling task hits his to-do list: help Lindsey learn how to break the rules.  


Before long, Ryan is showing Lindsey just how much fun she's been missing—in the bedroom and beyond. But Lindsey's brother Zach is part of the Rockets' management team, and he disapproves of their new relationship.  And Zach just offered Ryan's father the job of a lifetime.


When the conflict moves center stage, will Ryan choose Lindsey?  Or will his obligations to the Rockets and his father send Lindsey back to her stifled life alone?

A hot contemporary baseball romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

Can two wrongs make anything right?

Teetering on the brink of success as a patent lawyer, Amanda Carter is courting financial disaster. She's juggling her family's crippling medical expenses and a huge payment to join her law firm partners—nearly impossible burdens because her father stole her identity. If she doesn’t pay up and win her current case, everything she’s worked for will crash to a humiliating end.


Easy-going right fielder Kyle Norton is mired in the worst hitting slump of his career—until a black-haired beauty in the stands offers him her sunglasses. Slump broken, superstitious Kyle is convinced Amanda is the key to the championship his team so desperately wants to win for its dying owner.


Kyle needs Amanda to give him her glasses at every game. Amanda needs to bury herself in work and win the lawsuit—if she can find the money to buy into the firm. Soon, Amanda and Kyle are locked in battle, united by need, and consumed by passion.


In the end, can either one be always right?

Can an eager "May" land her downright sexy "December"?

At age thirty-seven, Zach is a veteran catcher in the last years of his contract, grateful for a no-trade clause that will let him retire a star in Raleigh.  Twenty-five-year-old Anna has grown up in the Rockets' front office; her grandfather has long groomed her to take over the team.

When Zach finally realizes Anna is no longer a star-struck kid, their passion flares like a game-winning grand slam.  But after a freak accident injures a young phenom and forces the team to land a new player, Anna must sacrifice Zach for the Rockets, convincing him to forfeit his hard-won no-trade guarantee.

There's hell to pay. He's doing everything in his considerable seductive power to make her keep him—on the team and in her bed. How can Anna and Zach live happily ever after when their romance will destroy the team they love?
