 #Synopsis:

 

Win the game. Lose your heart.

 

Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That’s supposed to be the “per” of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.

 

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

 

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.

 

I’m done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

Author Dennis Hetzel Hits a Home Run with Baseball-Political Thriller 'Season of Lies'

There is nothing unusual about Hollywood celebrities speaking out on behalf of their favorite presidential candidates, but not so much Major League Baseball players. Until now, in author Dennis Hetzel’s new thriller Season of Lies (Headline Books, Inc.). 

 

 

 

Enter Trey Van Ohmann, a star pitcher hired by the Chicago Cubs, to help the team build a new baseball dynasty, following their recent World Series victory. But just as the baseball season gets underway, so does a heated, three-way presidential race, and that’s when things start getting nasty.

 

You see, President Luke Murphy, the incumbent Republican, has been keeping a secret since his college days, until one of his opponents decides to leak the dirty details to a talk radio show. With his campaign—and his marriage—in jeopardy, Murphy, a loyal Cubs fan, enlists Van Ohmann’s endorsement, much to the chagrin of his teammates and the team’s owner, who happens to support one of the other candidates.

 

What follows is a complex story about a dirty presidential campaign and a baseball team striving for another championship, told from different characters’ perspectives. With such issues as sexual politics, religion, terrorism, fake news and scandals, “Season of Lies” has more twists and turns than a curve ball.

 

“Season of Lies” is a sequel to Hetzel’s debut novel, Killing the Curse (with Rick Robinson), which also was about the Cubs. No surprise there, considering that the author is originally from Chicago. He is also a journalist, having worked for The Capital Times in Madison, Wisconsin; York Daily Record in Pennsylvania; and the Cincinnati Enquirer. As such, he brings a reporter’s perspective to the political aspects of the novel and a sports fan’s passion to the baseball portions.

 

Like a tied baseball game with bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, Season of Lies is full of suspense. It would make an excellent summer read, not just for those who love baseball and politics, but anyone who enjoys great thrillers.

 

Season of Lies is available on Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com and

other outlets. For more information, visit HeadlineBooks.com and DennisHetzel.com.

Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia (I Can Read Level 2) - Peggy Parish,Wallace Tripp

I personally grew up reading Amelia Bedelia when I was younger. My mom would read this book to me and I would read this book all myself. Amelia is a funny character that loves to do thing you tell her to do but literally. I can share this book with my classroom just to have a book to giggle at and to have fun with.

Cover Reveal - Salvation's Inferno

salvation_banner_cr

 

Take a look at this HOT cover for Salvation's Inferno! Releasing on March 21st, you don't want to miss this amazing book!

 

salvations-inferno-web

 

Blurb:

 

Baseball superstar Dante Lamonte is a broken man. Reeling from the horrific double murder that took the lives of his pregnant fiancée as well as his best friend, he drowns in alcohol and sex, but never finds relief.

 

Becca Hernandez is a sweet girl with terrible luck with men—and worse luck with sex. Her one-night stand with a man who is way out of her league was also totally out of her character. Dante took her out of her comfort zone… she loved everything he did to her, but she knows nothing can come of it.

 

When their paths cross again, they can’t resist each other. One night of passion turns into much more, but they struggle to get through the bases of this new relationship. Dante’s demons may destroy him, and when details of their less than vanilla night are leaked to the press, Becca stands to lose everything—her job, her reputation and Dante. Love may be their only salvation.

 

THIS IS A STANDALONE.

About the Author:

 

 

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she's called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She's never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she'd probably choose the west coast.

 

Kat's a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she's not writing, she's either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) - traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

 

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article--a review of a rock concert--for $10 in 1985. Since then she's been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

 

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There's something enticing about hockey players and romance...

Our Rating

5 Stars

Connor still carries a torch for his old flame Tracy, but she moved on long ago after he left to pursue his baseball dreams.  Now he’s back in town, though, newly traded to the local team, and she’s divorced from her husband, making it the perfect opportunity for him to rekindle their romance.  He’s just got to convince her that he’s a changed man, one who will put her first and take care of her, not chase after his career.  But she’s keeping him at a distance, going out on dates but insisting on getting home early, because when he finds out she’s a package deal with four kids in the mix, he might not be so quick to dive back into a relationship.

 

The Verdict:  Second chance romance plus a hot athlete reduced to all kinds of adorable by a bunch of kids…  What’s not to love?

 

Tracy and Connor didn’t exactly split on bad terms back in the day, but he headed off to pursue his dreams of a career in baseball, and she was left to move on, so that’s exactly what she did.  Fast forward several years, and she’s mom to four wonderful children, but their louse of a father is no longer in the picture.  He’s off making a new life with the family he had on the side, and it’s up to a now divorced Tracy to raise the kids on her own.  But now Connor’s back in the picture, having just been traded to the hometown baseball team, and all those old feelings are coming back strong.

 

Tracy’s reluctant to rekindle things with Connor for a few reasons.  For one, she hasn’t had the best luck with men, and while that hasn’t completely destroyed her faith in happily ever after, it’s definitely made her more cautious.  There’s also the fact that Connor is no longer simply a local sports phenom; he’s a famous athlete who’s dated models and actresses — everything Tracy is not.  He’s used to an entirely different lifestyle, and while Tracy may be looking pretty damned good for a mom of four, she’s not sure she can measure up or hold his interest, given his usual dates.  And of course, there’s also that matter of having four children.  Like any good mom, her kids come first, so she doesn’t want them becoming attached to a man who doesn’t intend to stick around for the long haul.  She’s also not so sure the hot-shot athlete is willing to take on four kids or adjust to her life that pretty much revolves around them.  And so while she gives in and goes on a couple of dates with him, she doesn’t offer up the facts about her family.

 

Normally when a character keeps a big secret like this, it snowballs like crazy and ends up creating some incredible drama that is so over-the-top and unnecessary that I become frustrated with the whole story.  But Tracy doesn’t go to any insane lengths to keep her kids a secret, and Connor is pretty level headed — not to mention dead set on winning Tracy over again.  While he doesn’t delude himself into becoming an instant father figure, he takes everything in stride, which is all it took to win me over.  And I have to say that I understand where Tracy was coming from.  Baggage from a previous marriage is always a potential obstacle, but when it’s four young children, that’s more than most people are willing to take on.  Concern for the kids would have me keeping them out of the picture as well, if for no other reason than so they wouldn’t become attached to someone who might not be around all that long.

 

The Heat is On is a really heartwarming, fun second-chance romance with lots of sweet family moments and some steamy scenes to keep things hot, and the characters are easy to root for and love.  I’d say this one is perfect for both sports romance fanatics and second-chance romance junkies, both of whom will be swooning over Connor within just a few chapters.
