This long-awaited story of the third Wolfe brother introduces the Seattle Skookums baseball team.
Zeke Wolfe, the man who’s written off his entire family, rescues a young woman and three children on a stormy Seattle night. Before he knows it, he has an instant family and a fake fiancé he’s certain he doesn’t want.
Paisley Madison dreams of having a real home for herself and her sister's children. When a handsome baseball player drops into her life, she knows a gift when she sees one and hires herself as his assistant.
As their business arrangement turns into something much more personal, Paisley and Zeke's pasts threaten to destroy their precarious hold on a future together. Can they conquer their demons and find love, or will they run from their pasts and abandon their future together?

If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Tyler Harris from Forward Passes because not only is he sexy, he’s also very handy.
If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
Izzie in Crashing the Net, we’re a lot alike.
What inspired you to write your first book?
I don’t recall. I wrote and illustrated my first book at five years old. I’ve always written, but only for fun. I would have to say that my inspiration to write professionally came from several readers on a fan fiction site about 12 years ago. Some of them are still my readers.
What is your favorite book that you wrote?
Who or what inspired you to be a writer?
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Susan Elizabeth Phillips, her descriptions and characters are the best.
What's your favorite book-turned movie?
What is your typical day like?
I go to work at 7 am, get home about 5 pm, get dinner, and write or do writing-related business stuff until about 8 pm, then I watch a few hours of TV. Not very exciting.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
I usually don’t get it, but if I do, I write the main characters’ bio in first person as if they’re writing it after the book ends.
What is your favorite thing about sports romances?
I LOVE sports. I love the sports parts of the books, the team aspect, which becomes my community.
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
I have a few things in the works. I’m working on my next football book featuring my Native American tight end, Hunter. I’m also planning a new adult series set at a fictional college. The first book will feature Riley from Crashing the Net. Also Brick the goalie’s story is slated for next year.
What book are you reading now?
I just finished Sarina Bowen’s Rookie Moves, and I LOVED it!!!
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
Ebooks. I haven’t read a paperback in about 4 years.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you for reading my books. You are the reason I continue to write when things get tough and life gets busy. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or comments. I love to hear from you.
