Welcome to the Hot Summer Reads Giveaway Hop, sponsored by the Insatiable Reads Book Tour. There are over 100 bloggers and authors participating in the hop, and each is offering a giveaway on her blog. And there are two Grand Prize, too:

Nice, eh? But it’s not all about the prizes, is it? It’s about the books, too–all those wonderful reads that can steam up your summer and make it a whole lot of fun! And what better for a hot read than the Boys of Summer, themselves?
In addition to my historical romances, I write contemporary romance with my husband as V.K. Sykes. As you can imagine, writing romance with hubby leads to some interesting developments–plot developments, that is. You see, hubby is something of a baseball fanatic, so he thought it would be fun to write a series centered around the players of a pro ball team. Thus, The Philadelphia Patriots were born.
Our USA Today Bestselling series features classic alpha male athletes as heroes, and the women who tame them. These guys are smart, sexy, and very hot, as our heroines find out sooner rather than later! Here’s the blurb for our latest book in the series, Curveball:
Taylor Page has never wanted anything but a career in major league baseball. Through talent and guts, she’s finally landed a position as Assistant General Manager of the Philadelphia Patriots. The only problem is that most men in baseball still don’t take a woman exec seriously, so she needs to do something big to convince her bosses she has what it takes to run a team.
Veteran Pittsburgh outfielder Ryan Locke’s career is in jeopardy when a suddenly unreliable throwing arm comes on top of rehab from a major injury. A single parent with a troubled daughter and an alcoholic mother to provide for, retirement is out of the question.
When Taylor needs a replacement for an injured first baseman, she comes up with a risky idea: convince her boss to make a trade for Ryan Locke, and then convince the still talented slugger to play first base for the Patriots. With Ryan dead-set against that plan and both their careers on the line, neither Taylor nor Ryan can afford the explosive physical attraction between them. But despite Taylor’s best efforts to resist Ryan’s campaign of seduction, she’s not sure she’s got the willpower to keep from playing along.
You can read an excerpt from Curveball and my other contemporary romances on my V.K. Sykes website.
