A widow and a bad-boy hero with PTSD find healing in a fake engagement in this sexy stand-alone baseball romance!


Drew Marshall, the Raleigh Rockets' bad-boy shortstop, is about to be cut from the team.  In the midst of spring training, his baseball skills are slipping, and his recent scrapes with the law have put him in hot water.


Drew's agent hires spin doctor Jessica Barnes to save the shortstop's career.  Although she knows nothing about baseball, she is determined to work day and night to save Drew. Then, maybe, she can prove she's over the death of her risk-taking husband.


The new-image campaign spirals out of control when a well-intentioned teammate announces Jessica is Drew's secret fiancée.  Now trapped in the same hotel room, the couple crafts a fake engagement to satisfy ravenous reporters, all the while doing their best to resist a mutual attraction that's hotter than the Florida weather.


Can their relationship possibly survive when it's built on secrets and lies?


This spicy stand-alone HEA with no cliffhanger is the sixth book in USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky’s Diamond Brides baseball series.
