FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!
There's more than one way to win in the debut of the First to Fight series...
Athletic trainer Marianne Cook is ready to do whatever it takes to turn the men of the Marine Corps boxing team into fighting machines. After all, her ultimate goal is to land a job training professional athletes. But when she notices a certain hard-bodied marine trying to hide an injury, Marianne realizes that she'll have to use covert tactics to get him talking.
First Lieutenant Brad Costa has waited years for the chance to fight for a spot on the Marine Corps boxing team, knowing he has to push twice as hard to get half as far as his younger counterparts. Brad tries to downplay his injuries to the attractive trainer who has his dreams in her hands, but Marianne isn't buying it. Maybe it's time to deploy some targeted flattery.
As Brad and Marianne's attraction turns red-hot, there's more than one person having a hard time keeping their eyes on the prize...
The author of Below the Belt continues her First to Fight series with a novel of one Marine's battle to come out on top--in life and love... As a troubled teen, Gregory Higgs channeled his energy into boxing instead of breaking the law. The ring gave him purpose and something to strive for. So did the Marines. Combining the two seemed like a natural fit. Another natural fit? Reagan Robilard, the sweet athlete liaison who keeps all the fighters out of trouble and manages their PR--a job that gets more challenging when someone digs up the truth about Greg's not-so-shiny past after equipment is vandalized at the gym. Even if it wasn't her job, Reagan can't let Greg take the fall. Because passion doesn't pull any punches when it comes to matters of the heart...
NEW IN THE SANTA FE BOBCATS SERIES! Sometimes faking it is your only option...

Luckily for Stephen, he does have a housekeeper.

They’re not on the same page in the playbook...

As a Santa Fe Bobcats running back, Josiah wants to make his mark on the field, not on the earth. A serious conservationist, he’s all about saving energy. So why is he wasting so much on the flighty fashionista in his best friend’s wedding? One kiss leads to another--and more. But when Josiah discovers that Anya has just as much substance as style, their harmless little fling may go into overtime...

From the author of Romancing the Running Back and the First to Fight series comes the latest in the Santa Fe Bobcats series!
Teamwork improves the chances of scoring . . .
When the Bobcats’ fate on the field is sealed, and they would rather give their starting quarterback, Trey Owens, a break, they call in Josh Leeman: “The Backup.” But after Trey is placed on the disabled list for the season, all eyes are on Josh to lead the team. Josh’s sudden superstar status thrusts him into the spotlight, and garners plenty of attention from the ladies--except for one.
Carrington Gray is delighted to see her father released from the hospital--but not so much to see Josh at the celebration. Their mothers have long tried to set them up, although it’s had the opposite effect. But under the circumstances, Carri and Josh would rather go on fake dates to appease their mothers than rock the boat. Yet the more time these two work together on their little lie, the more they see the surprising truth . . .
