Payoff Pitch Now In Stores for Only 99 cents!!


Many of my readers know that I write sexy contemporary romance with my husband under the pen name of VK Sykes.  I’m pleased as punch to announce that we have a new book out today in our USA Today Bestselling series of sports romances, The Philadelphia Patriots.  Payoff Pitch is book 5 in the series, and it’s one of our favorites.

Even better, we’re running a special release deal:  until July 16th, Payoff Pitch will be available for ONLY 99 cents.  After that date, the book will convert to it’s regular price of $2.99.  Honestly, how can you resist such a bargain?!

Here’s the blurb:

He’s a billionaire ballplayer…

Noah Cade, pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots, has big problems. He’s recovering from a serious injury and he’s just been saddled with his sick aunt’s crazy dogs. Then there’s his dad, a wealthy oilman who wants Noah to retire from baseball and step into his shoes as CEO of the family corporation. All Noah wants is to pitch again and help his team win the World Series, but his family keeps dragging him in the opposite direction.

She’s a small town girl…

Teddy Quinn moved to the city to start a dog walking business for rich people, hoping the income will pay for law school and help her fight the oil corporations drilling the county where she grew up. When Noah Cade hires her as a full-time dog sitter for his high-energy pets, it seems like the answer to Teddy’s financial woes. But the boundaries get blurred when she starts falling for her boss, who uses all his formidable charm to lure her into his bed.

When Teddy discovers Noah’s father owns Baron Energy, she’s devastated. How can she work for—or love—a man whose family stands for everything she hates?
