the Incomparable CARIDAD PINEIRO

Welcome back to GLIAS, Caridad. Don't you love this cover? Of course, I'm a baseball fan. I love my Rangers whether they're in law enforcement or playing at the Ballpark in Arlington. I also married a younger man...ooops, my secret's out. Great to have you here, Caridad.


Alicia Santos knows she shouldn’t be tempted by the team’s new rookie catcher. . .
But Joe Fernandez isn’t just your average baseball player. He’s a potential rookie of the year with amazing skills on the field. Smart, sexy and determined, he’s fought hard for everything in his life and Alicia appreciates that kind of focus. But she’s older and wiser, or so she thinks, until Joe sets his sights on winning her over off the field. . .

Joe Fernandez has never backed down from a challenge . . .
Especially when it’s a woman like his team’s beautiful trainer. He doesn’t mind that she’s older or stubbornly refusing to give into her attraction for him. He’s a patient man and little by little he wears away her resistance.

Nights spent together are glorious and forbidden . . .
Alicia and Joe work hard to keep their personal and professional lives apart to avoid problems on the baseball field. When a career-ending injury threatens their newfound love, Alicia and Joe must find the strength to rebuild Joe’s body and restore balance to their lives.
