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

The love of your life might be hiding in plain sight...

Photographer Jamie Martin gave up her fast-paced New York career and moved to Raleigh, NC to raise an unexpected blessing: her daughter Olivia.  Desperate for clients, Jamie is thrilled to land a job with the Rockets baseball team...until she discovers she must work with her ex-fiancé, who doesn't know he's fathered her child.

Career-driven second baseman Nick Durban broke up with Jamie at college graduation so they both could follow their dreams. Seven years later, he gets a reality check when he learns about Olivia.

Jamie is so determined to keep Nick out of her life that she tries online dating, never dreaming he is her perfect electronic match.  Can this out-of-sync couple get past their second thoughts and learn to trust each other again?

If you can't stand the heat…

Chef Ashley Harris wants to own a restaurant—that's why she attended culinary school, and that's why she tolerates working for the world's most lecherous restaurateur.

The Raleigh Rockets' third baseman Josh Cantor wants to launch his investment restaurant with the family recipes he loved growing up. Josh has been promised that treasure trove—but only if he can convince his grandmother that he's dating again, after a traumatic divorce.

When a cooking reality show comes to Raleigh, Ashley and Josh must compete against each other to achieve their dreams—even when the flames in the bedroom roar higher than the ones in their kitchens.  In the end, only one cook can win Who Wears the Apron.  Will their relationship survive this trial by fire?

A hot contemporary baseball romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.The girl next door is something more…

Adam Sartain is the face of the Rockets baseball franchise, a long-time left fielder with an easy-going attitude and a reputation for helping out in the community.


Haley Thurman is literally the girl next door; she and Adam grew up like siblings, raising hell and sneaking out for late-night hijinks at the neighboring Reeves Farm.  Now, Haley dreams of buying the farm for her no-kill animal shelter.


Haley's plan is perfect, until Adam learns the farm is for sale.  His unscrupulous manager has cleaned out his bank account, and the only way he can regain his fortune, save his reputation, and continue to fund a charity for underserved kids is to buy the farm and develop it as high-end condos.  


Sparks fly as Haley and Adam fight over the farm—and neither is prepared for the heat when they realize they aren't just neighbors any more…

 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?

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?
