From USA Today bestselling author, Pamela Aares, four captivating, full length romances about sexy sports heroes and the amazing women who challenge them to love.

"Pamela Aares spins tales of love resisted and love well-won. Not since Nora Roberts and Barbara Freethy has an author written such engaging characters and unusual, heart-wrenching challenges to love." ~ EarthLovingLens

In LOVE BATS LAST, All-Star first baseman Alex Tavonesi has his hands full: he inherits the family vineyard and?is fighting to win one of baseball's most coveted honors, the Triple Crown. But when he meets veterinarian Jackie Brandon by chance in a midnight storm and helps her rescue a stranded whale, the love she ignites derails all his careful practices and plans.
In THROWN BY LOVE, ace pitcher Scotty Donovan has been traded from his longtime team--and hates it. But to his surprise, he now finds himself in the sweetest game of his life: winning the heart of smart, sexy physics professor Chloe McNalley. But when she inherits the team he plays for, following his heart could ruin his career.
In FIELDER'S CHOICE, All-Star shortstop Matt Darrington has more than a problem. His wife died, and now he's juggling a too-smart-for-her-britches six-year-old and the grueling pace of professional baseball. Worse, his daughter is mom shopping. When they explore a local ranch, she decides the beautiful, free-spirited tour guide is premium mom material. Matt thinks the sexy guide looks like Grade-A trouble. When love's in the game you can't play it safe...
In LOVE ON THE LINE, heiress Cara Barrington fled the opulent world of her rich and famous family to carve out an idyllic existence on the California Coast. In the sleepy town of Albion Bay, she's embraced the simple way of living she's always craved. No one knows her identity, and she's free from the pressures of wealth . . . until her sexy new neighbor threatens the unpretentious world she's worked so hard to build.

Four very different romances regarding a common demniator, baseball. All four stories covers the love stories of four baseball stars on the Giants' team; Alex, Scott, Matt, and Ryan. The first four compkete stories in the series of 10. An offer for an additional free book next in this series is offered. Alex was a seasoned veteran who was established and looking at his twilight years in baseball while juggling his responsibilities as heir to his family's successful vineyard and wine.. He had no intention of adding love into his jyggling act. Scott was traded from the Giants to a new team. He understood that he was bought and his new owner could give him orders, but he was flummoxed because he wanted the owner to give him orders... in bed! Owners having personal relationships with their players were verboten, but Scott could not break away! Alex's cousin inherited the community from her grandmother. Alana did not want the responsibilities nor the commitment. She enjoyed her butterfly life, and she just did not want the simpler life required by the orchard and the other projects' goals. Matt was a single father whose wife's death dropped him into the role of an only parent for a daughter who he never had to deal with before. Alana was not his ideal for a mother for his daughter, but she made him think of sex... everywhere and all of the time! Finally, Ryan was the son of poor folks. His mother gave him her support in his quest to play baseball. His father wanted him to get an education to give him a realistic chance to escape poverty with an education, definitely NOT on depending upon the ublikely chance he would play on a major league team. He realuzed his dream, but he sacrificed his willingness to trust women. He found that the women were not interested in who he was. They wanted the outer trappings, at all cost. Cara had secrets. Ryan wanted to trust her, but he couldn't get past the discrepancies he saw in her life. Explicit sex. Four different stories but with one core characteristic. Love will have its way. It is not in your time, convenience, or plans. When you try to schedule live, you lose. Either accept the dictates of live or suffer the consequences. I recommend these stories for mature adult readers.

Awkward transitions, spotty character development and lack of flow make story had to read. It isn't enjoyable reading and I stopped reading about half way thru. Tried the 2nd book same issues and read only 2 chapters. Won't attempt other books. Disappointed

Really enjoyed these first four books. Loved the character development. Never enjoyed the sport of baseball, I thought it was long and boring. Now I want to watch a game with new insights for game gained from reading these books about how the players have to be able read pitchers and batters. Very interesting. This was my first read by this author, but I can't wait to the rest of the series. Highly recommend. Mjw
