Slam dunk? Not in their season of desire

"Fast-paced and funny but soulful and deep.... Just right. That's what I thought of Hoops." -- 5-star review

The Coach and the Professor…
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to becoming the perfect professor of English is hijacked the day she is appointed academic advisor to the Ashton University men's basketball team.

Especially when she meets C.J. Draper, the team's infuriating, irreverent, and sexy new coach and discovers he’s the hijacker of her careful plans. She thoroughly disapproves of her beloved Ashton’s jump to big-time basketball, but how can she say no to safeguarding the academic progress of the players? As for saying no to the coach… surely she’ll get better with more practice.

C.J. has never lets adversity stop him -- if he had he'd never have gotten this far. He's not about to start by letting enticing Professor Trent derail him. He has goals. And Ashton is just one rung on his ladder up. If he chooses to rattle Carolyn’s ivory tower, it’s for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . isn't it?

When logic clashes with ambition in the game of love, will anyone win?

Hoops, Book 6 in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's The Wedding Series, also introduces you to a younger version of Brad . . .before all-grown-up Brad, as an assistant coach in The Surprise Princess, volunteers to be Katie's improbable knight. Despite what it will cost him.

“My favourite part was how he kept trying to define the colour of her hair. Actually, I'm lying. I also like that the woman was REAL. Not a size 2 model with the perfect body. But still beautiful.” -
