COVERING KENDALL – On sale October 21, 2014
About the book -
Kendall Tracy, General Manager of the San Francisco Miners, is not one for rash decisions or one-night stands. But when she finds herself alone in a hotel room with a heart-stoppingly gorgeous man-who looks oddly familiar-Kendall throws her own rules out the window…and they blow right back into her face.
Drew McCoy should look familiar, he’s a star player for her team’s archrival the Seattle Sharks. Which would basically make Drew and Kendall the Romeo and Juliet of professional football…well, without all the dying. Not that it’s an issue. They agree to pretend their encounter never happened. Nothing good can come from it anyway, right? Drew’s not so sure.
Kendall may be all wrong, but he can’t stop thinking about her and he finds that some risks are worth taking. Because the stakes are always highest when you’re playing for keeps.
Drew had pulled up in front of Kendall’s townhouse development twenty minutes ago after driving through the streets of Santa Clara. He was more of an LA guy after spending four years of his life there, but he glanced around at a tidy, upscale community drenched in sunshine as he drove. He loved playing for the Sharks and he’d almost gotten used to Seattle’s weather over the past couple of years, but the warmth and blue skies lured him again. He wouldn’t mind spending some time here again soon. He knew the chances Kendall was already home from the office were slim to none. He’d brought a book along to keep him company. He could hang out here on the other side of the street for a little while before the neighbors called the cops. Minutes later, a late-model latte-colored Lexus crossover turned the corner onto Kendall’s street, and he recognized her behind the wheel. He waited until she drove into the garage and the door lowered behind her car before parking his rental car in her driveway. He reached out for the bouquet of flowers he’d bought and patted his front jeans pocket to make sure her phone was still there before opening the car door. He climbed the flight of stairs to her front door, rang the doorbell and waited. He heard her voice a minute or so later through the door. “Drew.” She pulled the door open. Her eyes flew wide. He saw a flush moving over her cheeks. She looked a bit startled, but she smiled at him. “What are you doing here?” “Special delivery.” He held out the bouquet of flowers. “I have your phone, too.” She took a deep, appreciative sniff of the bouquet and said, “You didn’t have to do this.” “I wanted to,” he said. They stared at each other for a few seconds, or an eternity. He told himself to breathe. “May I come in?” “Oh! Oh,” she said. “Of course. Please.”
