GAME ON — (Out of Bounds Book 1)
There’s no such thing as out of bounds…
Shane Devlin, known as the Devil of the NFL, has made a career of breaking records on the field and breaking rules off it. The son of a football icon who abandoned him as a child, Shane has spent a lifetime blackening his pedigree every opportunity he gets. Now, in the waning stages of his career, another player’s freak accident gives him one last season to surpass his estranged father in the record books. The road to the record books is not without pitfalls, however. His new team comes not only with a moral code book chock full of rules, but a sexy staff member, who’s been charged with keeping Shane’s renegade reputation in check.
In her job as assistant to the General Manger of a professional football team, Carly March is determined to make the best of it–even if it means dealing with arrogant jocks, their cunning bridezillas, and a stalking sportswriter. After surviving a childhood played out in the tabloids, Carly just wants to fly below the radar and live a quiet life. She has no intention of succumbing to the attraction of a brooding, hard-bodied quarterback.
What is it they say about the best of intentions….?
FOOLISH GAMES (Out of Bounds Book 2)
Bridal gown designer, Julianne Marchione knows better than to lose her head at a client’s wedding. But much to her embarrassment, a mix of migraine medication and a smoking hot football player lead to a steamy one night stand resulting in a surprise pregnancy. Julianne has every intention of leaving
her NFL hookup far in the past until her son, Owen, is born with a life-threatening blood disorder that requires a transfusion—and Julianne is not a match.
Will “William the Conqueror” Connelly grew up tough shouldering the stigma of being a bastard child born on the wrong side of the tracks. He refuses to let any child face the same discrimination. When he finds out about Owen, he’s furious that Julianne kept his son a secret. But when he sees her again at the hospital, he realizes that his feelings for her go far beyond anger.
Will insists that Owen recuperate at his home in North Carolina, and he’s adamant that Julianne become his wife—even if it’s only a temporary marriage in name only. But will their simmering attraction ever lead to a real connection? Or are they just playing foolish games?
COMING APRIL 15, 2014 — A NUMBERS GAME (Out of Bounds 2.5) An e-book Novella
CPA Merrit Callahan learned early not to let passion unravel her orderly life. Back in college she fell hard for a football player, only to be devastated when she discovered he’d been duping her all along—dared by his teammates to score with his bookish tutor.

After eight years in the pros, a series of concussions have forced Heath Gibson out of the NFL. The transition from player to coach for the Baltimore Blaze hasn’t been smooth, but finding himself face-to-face with Merrit Callahan makes the ride even rockier.

Merrit’s stunned to reconnect with Heath. And despite the authenticity of his reignited feelings this time around, Merrit’s got her mind set on payback. She’ll give Heath a night he won’t forget and then walk away. But Heath’s hold on her heart—and the rest of her body—is difficult to break…
