THE LOVE OF THE GAME
Money. Fame. Endorsements. Blake Carpenter had it all — before his professional football career spiraled out of control. Determined to rebuild his life, he takes on coaching the high school team in his Colorado hometown. Despite a few fumbles, Blake knows he can lead these boys to victory. As long as he can keep his eyes on the prize and off the team’s distractingly gorgeous physical therapist.
Annabelle Turner knows all about the scandal that cost Blake his NFL career, and she’ll be damned if she’s going to let his mistakes hurt her team. What she doesn’t count on is the intense attraction that turns every heated run-in they have into a wildly erotic competition. Point by point, play by play, kiss by kiss, they try to keep things professional for the good of the team. But when the score is this close-and the passion this fierce-it’s anybody’s game.

“I don’t like people interfering with my work, Ms. Turner,” Coach Blake Carpenter told her.
“And I don’t like people telling me what to do,” he added.
“You’re used to having your way, aren’t you?” he asked Annabelle with a tilt of his head.
Always. “Sometimes,” she lied.
“Well, so am I,” he stated.
“No kidding? I never would have guessed.”
This time he did smile. A slow curling of his lips that matched the curling of her toes in. “So who do you think will win, Ms. Turner?”
“You might if you ever stop calling me that.”
He grin grew. “Why would I want to do that?”
Because it turns me on. “Because it’s too formal. Just call me Annabelle.”
“That’s not why you don’t like it,” he countered in a low voice.
They stared at each other like two caged fighters waiting for the other to wave the white flag. Only Annabelle didn’t give up, and she wasn’t about to start now. If Blake Carpenter expected her to admit defeat, he’d better think again.
