Title: Crack Shot
Author: Pippa Green
Genre: Sports Romance
Publication Date: Sept. 27th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

I’ve finally achieved my dream of moving back to my hometown and playing for the NHL team I’ve loved since I was a boy: the Minnesota Raiders. It’s a big deal, uprooting my daughter Summer but being in the old family home with my sister will help.

 

Except a lot has changed since I left.

 

Such as my sister no longer being my number one fan and moving her best friend into our basement. Not that there’s anything wrong with Caitlin. She’s sweet as the wedding cakes she bakes for a living and sexy as hell to boot. Oh yeah, and she’s completely off-limits because she’s also the daughter of my coach.

 

Living close to Caitlin is torture for multiple reasons and while we get off to a bad start—turns out I can be an arrogant jerk—she’s still amazing with Summer, who has more than a little crush on her. I know how the kid feels.

 

I haven’t been in a relationship since my wife died, and if I give into temptation, then I’m risking my career and my daughter’s happiness. Once I get a taste of Caitlin, keeping from falling for the one girl I can’t have becomes impossible. How am I not going to crack?

 

Crack Shot is book 9 in the Minnesota Raiders series.

Title: Hot Shot
Author: Pippa Green
Genre: Sports Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

When my sister told me she had hired a new nanny by the name of Esther to watch my rambunctious kids, I expected an elderly grandmother type.

 

I was completely wrong. Utterly wrong.

 

Esther Richardson might have been a child prodigy violin virtuoso in her youth, but right now she’s making waffles like a master and completely showing me up in every way possible. She’s also walking around in sexy outfits and making my life miserable.

 

As captain of the Minnesota Raiders professional hockey team, I’m all business. I’m Puck Daddy on the ice. At home, I’m trying to keep my hands off of Esther—and failing.

 

I haven’t had feelings like these for a woman since my wife died. Esther is my kids’ nanny. It’s wrong to want her this badly. Isn’t it? I no longer know.

 

One thing’s for sure: I want out of the Single Dad Hockey Players Club.

 

Can I convince Esther to give me a chance? To give us a chance to see where this goes?

 

Hot Shot is Book 1 in the Minnesota Raiders series following sexy single hockey player dads on and off the ice.

Cover Model: Philippe Bélanger

I, Alex Hartwell, just screwed up big-time.
Now the hockey team I was traded to, the Las Vegas Wolves, have me on a short leash.
You’d think a hotshot defenseman like me would have known better.
Guess not.
But I’m trying real hard to behave now.
Why else would I agree to stay at my teammate’s house for the next three months in order to keep the team happy?
It should be a breeze, as Sebastian Alderman is cool. Only problem is I didn’t count on his hot sister, Kelsi, staying there too.
FML, as Hockey Code 101 says sisters are off-limits.
Yeah, I can’t take the risk. Even if Kelsi and I are wildly attracted to each other. Not to mention, she’s pretty effing cool.
But I better behave.
Or not only will the Wolves be breathing down my neck, but Sebastian will be too.
Risk on Ice is the eleventh novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Title: Best Match (Arizona Rattlesnakes Book 3)
Author: Pippa Green
Genre: Sports Romance
Editor: Kerry Genova
Publication Date: Aug. 30th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

From the outside looking in, my life is perfect. I’ve made it all the way from Sweden to the USA to be a star player for the Arizona Rattlesnakes NHL team and we’re having our best season ever. The problem is… I can’t take the heat. Literally. I need to get out of the desert as fast as possible.

 

I have a plan and it’s simple: remain detached from my life, as Tucson is just a pit stop, and when we win the Cup, I’ll get myself traded to any other team in a colder climate. My teammates think I’m a grumpy bastard but that’s just my way of keeping them at arm’s length, so I don’t miss them too much when I bolt.

 

I’ve hit another snag in the form of my new next-door neighbor. Elizabeth’s a ray of jävlasunshine—and we know how I feel about the sun—and she can’t seem to take the hint that I want her gone. My stand-offish nature doesn’t seem to stop her from baking me muffins, doing my yard work, and generally driving me insane with her curves as she prances around in yoga outfits and lounges in her bikini by the pool.

 

I need to resist, but every minute I spend with Elizabeth and her three-legged dog makes it harder and harder to remember why I can’t just let myself go and enjoy her warmth. She may be the best thing that’s ever happened to a grumpy bastard like me, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to let the sexy, taco-loving temptress lure me into staying in Helvete, or Hell.

 

If I stick to my plan I’ll be happy…right? But what if I’m wrong?

 

Best Match is the third book in the new Arizona Rattlesnakes series, a spinoff from Pippa Green’s successful Minnesota Raiders series. It can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.

Release Date: October 25, 2022
Cover Design: RBA Designs

Illustrated by: FuriousFotog
From New York Times bestseller L.P. Dover comes a story of passion, revenge, and twisted manipulation.
Ethan Jameson has it all. He’s one of the hottest fighters in the middleweight circuit and is loved by women everywhere. It seems nothing can stand in his way… except for the dragon tattoo that marks him as a target. He knew the day would come when Nikolai Michelson would seek out his vengeance. He even fooled himself into believing he was ready to fight back… until a one-night stand changes everything.
Peyton Emerson; Hollywood starlet and America’s sweetheart. She’s always wondered what it would be like to have Ethan to herself. After a drunken weekend in Vegas, she got the pleasure of finding out firsthand. But being with her comes at a cost. Peyton knows all too well how the paparazzi tear couples apart with their lies.
Still, there’s no denying that their one-night stand sparked something inside of them—a need for one another they can’t quell. Unable to fight their attraction, they work to keep their relationship a secret. Unfortunately, their efforts aren’t enough to keep an enemy from finding out and using that information to manipulate them both. When Peyton and Ethan are approached with a grisly demand, they have no choice but to accept. Those they love will pay the horrific price if they try to refuse…

Everything’s sweeter in the South has always been her mantra and she lives by it, whether it’s with her writing or in her everyday life. Maybe that’s why she’s seriously addicted to chocolate.

Her favorite to write is romantic suspense, but she’s also found a passion in romantic comedy. She loves to make people laugh which is why you’ll never see her without a smile on her face.

NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
A.C. James writes paranormal romance books for adults and erotica, including Eternal Ever After (rebranded as Eternal Lover), which was featured in the bestselling Spice Box anthology. Her Ever Dark Immortals series, which begins with Eternal Lover, has been described as “brimming with sensuality” and “romantic and sizzling hot.” The Isle of Horse Shifters series starts with Ride: Awakening, and is “lighthearted” that is a “joy ride from beginning to end.”
USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
Ann Gimpel is a USA Today bestselling author. A lifelong aficionado of the unusual, she began writing speculative fiction many years ago. Her short fiction has appeared in many webzines and anthologies. Her books run the gamut from urban fantasy to paranormal romance. Once upon a time, she nurtured clients. Now she nurtures dark, gritty fantasy stories that push hard against reality.
USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
Bianca Sommerland, author of the award winning Dartmouth Cobras series, was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. After hitting the USA TODAY Bestsellers list, and being invited to teach several classes on writing in the sports and BDSM genre, they retreated to their writing cave and can still be found there, doing what they’ve always done. Which is writing whatever the characters tell them to.
When not reading neurotically or writing as though the fate of the world rests on their keyboard, they are either watching hockey or teaching their children the beauty of a classic, steel pony while reminiscing about their days in Auto Body Mechanics. Their dream is to one day own enough land to park a few junkers on so they can work on restorations in their spare time. They also wants a pony. And while we’re sharing their wishlist, owning a tank is somewhere around number 5. Not that they would use it unless there’s a zombie apocalypse, but they do like to be prepared.
Their time is balanced with utmost care between ‘normal’ family life, and being lured into the fictional realm where their characters reside. For the most part, they succeed.
USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
“I’m passionate about books and literature. The best books are intense, enthralling stories that readers can get lost in for days. Books delve into what it means to be human and connect us to each other. Books allow us to live all our possible lives. Books open us to loving each other and the world more. I write intense, deeply imagined romance novels for serious readers because the world needs more love.” ~~Blair Babylon
Blair Babylon is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author who used to publish literary fiction. Because professional reviews of her other fiction usually included the caveat that there was too much deviant sex and too much interesting plot, she decided to abandon all literary pretensions, let her freak flag fly, and write hot, sexy, suspenseful romance.

USA Today Bestselling Author Kate Richards divides her time between Los Angeles and the High Sierras.

Wherever she is, she loves to explore all different kinds of relationships in her stories. She doesn’t believe one-size-fits-all, and whether her characters live BDSM, ménage, GLBT, spanking, or any other kind of lifestyle, it’s the love, the joy in one another, that counts.

Logan-freaking-Oliver.

He’s the million-dollar pretty boy who can kick a football. At least that’s what the papers lead us to believe. Me though, I’m not so convinced.

Sure, he’s got a backside you could bounce quarters off, arms you want wrapped around you, dimples you could drown in and hair you’d sell your mother to pull… but is he a nice guy or has he let fame go to his head?

I wasn’t one of his adoring fans, throwing my granny panties at his feet… that was until I met him, and he completely screwed me…

Title: Curveball: A Love Story
Author: Anne Trowbridge
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Sports Romance
Published: July 3, 2022
One bad pitch can change the whole game
Not to mention your life….
Zach Hiller was an ace pitcher for the New York Yankees until the day he lost everything in a catastrophe that he now remembers painfully as “The Curveball Incident”. Then, after two years of hiding from his past— spent mostly in Dublin, serving beer to tourists and throwing a stress ball against the walls of his messy apartment—his life goes up in flames once more, this time when an American named Emma Crawford walks into his pub and immediately takes to his tidy non- existence like a sunshine sledgehammer. How is he supposed to stay depressed, not to mention incognito, when this beautiful, stubborn, and funny woman is tearing down all his defenses? Emma has it all, including a brand-new fiancé, degree, and opportunity to explore every corner of Ireland for a summer. But all it takes is one chance encounter with a mysterious and brooding bartender from Texas to make her start questioning everything she thought she knew about herself. Together they have enough problems to fill an ocean. So why is it impossible to even consider spending the summer apart?

Anne Trowbridge lives in New Jersey with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s working her way through careers like she’s marking off a bingo card, with years spent as a newspaper reporter, book editor, middle school language arts teacher, and now writer. She grew up all over the Midwest and somehow still loves to travel and see new places.

“A slow burn romance with plenty of suspense and action.”

” It checked off so many of my favorite genres including MMA, Mafia, friend to lovers and workplace romance. The ending had me bubbling over with happiness making it the best escape from reality.”

“This is definitely becoming one of my favorite series, it has everything I want in a read to keep me glued to the pages.

L.P. Dover, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who brought you the tantalizing Gloves Off series, presents Gloves Off – Next Generation. This brand-new saga of interconnected standalones unites new characters with beloved originals in dark and sexy stories laced with suspense!
Two months ago, everything changed. The enemy no longer feels the need to sulk in the shadows. Instead, he hides in plain sight and prepares his attack… against Reagan Jameson.
Reagan knew this day would come. She proudly holds the featherweight title and is known as one of the sexiest female fighters in MMA history. She can handle her own, and that’s exactly what she plans to do with Nikolai. Unfortunately, things aren’t as they were before. When given an offer she can’t refuse, Reagan is well aware nothing good will come of it.
They promised her power, prestige, and money… a world full of intrigue and dangerous desires. Not being able to resist the allure, she gives in and becomes a pawn in their game. She’s able to fool those closest to her into believing everything is okay… except for Braden Emerson.
Braden’s reputation as one of the toughest fighters in the circuit hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, it’s his skills that get him lured into the pit of danger. While he vows to keep Reagan safe no matter the cost, his desire for her is used against him. As passion ignites between the pair, they must work together if they hope to survive.
Fighting for a title is one thing, but nothing beats the stakes of fighting for love. This is one TKO that could cost them everything.
