Hoops (The Wedding Series, Book 6, prequel to The Surprise Princess)
Slam dunk? Not in their season of desire
Full-length novel prequel to THE SURPRISE PRINCESS
Every plan encounters obstacles, but few are as sexy, as irritating and as irreverent as basketball coach C.J. Draper.
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to reaching the top of her field as a professor of English is hijacked the day she becomes academic adviser to the Ashton University men's basketball team. The hijacker is C.J. Draper, the team's new coach.
C.J. never lets adversity stop him – he'd never have gotten this far if he did. He's not about to start by letting Professor Trent derail him. If he chooses to rattle her ivory tower it's just for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . isn't it?
In this game of love, will anyone win?
