Francesca "Frankie" Cuttino relocated to the baseball-obsessed town of Kingston, Rhode Island to start a new life. She's been taking refuge in her teaching job and indulging in binge watching TV. Welcoming the break from her three-time ex-fiancé, she takes comfort in the much needed alone time. But her sexy new neighbor has her rethinking the single life.

Professional baseball player Jed Silver is on the hitting streak of his career. He's the newest member of the Kingston Crushers and the town's latest obsession. He's enjoying his rookie status and all the attention it earns him with the women. That all changes when he stumbles onto his gorgeous next-door neighbor who doesn't have a clue who he is.

As baseball fever overtakes the town these two heat up the sheets, making for one explosive summer, until Frankie's past catches up with her.

Jab by A.K. Layton

Mixed martial arts fighter Silvio Almeida does not fit the bill, no matter how infuriatingly irresistible she finds him.

In training for an upcoming MMA fight, women aren't on Silvio's radar. Seeing firsthand how easily life can change in a single moment, he's decided to live life not looking too far into the future. But his path keeps crossing with Sabrina's, and he can't get the beautiful blonde off his mind.

When love throws them from their determined paths, they will have to discover if the best future is the one unplanned.

Soccer Mum by Lisa Knight

When Maggie's ten-year-old son joins a soccer team she hopes it will be an opportunity to meet new people and move forward from the disastrous past months. After all, a broken marriage and returning home to live with her parents wasn't quite how she'd envisioned her thirties.

Agreeing to play soccer herself as part of the parents' team, Maggie's lack of skill requires a little extra coaching. Leo is happy to assist, and Maggie becomes captivated by the former professional player, who ignites feelings she thought had disappeared forever.

But as her ex-husband pressures her to re-kindle their relationship, Maggie's guilt reaches overdrive. How can she possibly consider a future with Leo when there's a chance of putting her family back together?

Kelly Atkins has dedicated her life to caring for the horses at her off-track Thoroughbred rescue. When she's forced to sell part of her land to cover mounting expenses, she's shocked by who steps in to buy it—her high school sweetheart, Dustin. She didn't even know the man had moved back to town. Seeing him brings back memories of the most painful time of her life. Not only had she lost the man she thought she would spend forever with, she had also lost her twin brother. And for years she held Dustin responsible for his death.

Dustin, a former rodeo bronc rider, has plans to start a retired rodeo horse rescue. As he and Kelly start to rekindle the love they once shared, he fears what will happen when she learns his secret. A secret that could drive her away forever.

She was resistant, but he was insistent. A heart isn't safe when you fight dirty.

Leena Clark is independent, fierce, and most importantly, always in control. As an event planner those are excellent qualities to have. Carrying those into a personal life doesn't translate well, but that isn't something that concerns her. She's content living blissfully in her spinsterhood. However, when temptation and foolish curiosity clash, she allows the one man she shouldn't to get close to her. After insisting it was a mistake, she finds herself relying on the fighter for help out of a difficult situation. But his help comes with a price.

Gavril Alenin has been waiting for the opportunity to get close to the beautiful, self-assured, and guarded Leena, and her moment of weakness is his chance to fight for the future he wants. Now in his fifteenth year as a professional MMA fighter, he's ready to get out of the game, but not without a very specific plan: fight for the title one last time, then settle down with the reluctant Leena. But when he finally gets close to the girl of his dreams, everything else in his world falls apart.

When life turns their world on its head they have to decide if what they have is worth the fight, or will they lose it all because of fears and broken dreams?
