One our favorite authors is Carly Phillips. The very first series of her’s I read was her Hot Zone series. I was quickly a fan and went back and read everything on her backlist my sister in law had, and have been collecting her books ever since. If you’ve never read this series here’s your chance.
Annabelle Jordan and her two sisters were orphans in frilly dresses when they went to live with their sports-lawyer uncle in his world of locker rooms, bookies and gambling.
Now the girls are publicists in their uncle’s firm, The Hot Zone. Despite her upbringing Annabelle is all woman. She’s naturally drawn to real men — like her latest client, ex-football legend and businessman Brandon Vaughn.
The chemistry is potent, undeniable, irresistible. But Annabelle soon realizes that Brandon is much more than just another jock. And that she’d better hold on tight if she doesn’t want to lose her heart.
Micki Jordan, publicist to the brightest stars in the sports world, has decided to end her tomboy ways—effective immediately. While she will still be able to discuss the finer points of the two-man defense, she’s transforming herself into one hot number. With any luck, she will no longer be known as “just one of the guys.”
Now, Micki wants to find a new man to fit her new life. Current leading contender Damian Fuller is a professional ballplayer and a major-league playboy. Will the new Micki have a chance at winning Damian’s affections? Or will the wildest player in the league turn around and steal Micki’s heart for good?
Let the games begin.
Seen On The Sidelines
What star quarterback has been spotted with a new flavor of arm candy? It’s notorious bad boy Riley Nash, but his newest flame is the last person this reporter could imagine — none other than Sophie Jordan, beautiful, buttoned-down co-owner of The Hot Zone, the industry’s top sports management agency.
What’s behind this unlikely team? Some say it has to do with the sudden disappearance of superagent Spencer Atkins. Could there be a connection between the red-hot quarterback and the missing dealmaker? Or has the famous groupie magnet simply met his perfect match in cool, collected Sophie? Watch this space, because the resulting news is bound to be one Hot Item.
Just one short season ago, major league center fielder John Roper had it all: the looks and personal life of a sports hero and the public’s adoration. But this hot property’s lucky streak has run out. After a World Series disaster, fans diss him, shock jocks mock him and his dysfunctional family hassles him for money he really can’t spare. Now it’s up to him, and Hot Zone publicist Amy Stone, to get his life back on track.
Amy finds it’s easier said than done. What with the constant intrusions of his nutty family, a crazed fan playing stalker, and Roper’s refusal to put his own needs first, she’s starting to think that life in the fast lane isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But when the two retreat to a secluded lodge, the sexy center fielder throws Amy a curveball one she never saw coming.
