Blurb:

New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde welcomes you to Stardust, Texas . . . where dreams come true and love is always right around the corner

Wanted: ghostwriter. Must be female, a baseball fan, and have a great pair of legs.

Ex-pitcher Rowdy Blanton never saw a woman he couldn't conquer or a team he couldn't beat. And now that he's off the field he's ready to tell all about when he played the field. So he chooses Breeanne Carlyle to do the job-she's got the requirements, but more important, there's something about her that makes him want to be a better man.

Convinced there's more to Rowdy than a good fastball, a wicked smile, and a tight pair of pants, Breeanne can't help but be tempted. After all, it's boring always being the good girl, and Rowdy dares her to be just a little bad. The stakes are high, but win or lose, this time Breeanne's breaking all the rules playing the game of love.

 Excerpt: 

Her inner fan-girl drooled.
Instantly a funnel of humanity swirled toward him, surrounded him, went crazy over him. Breeanne longed to join the rush, but her feet grew roots, anchoring her to the earth. People pushed and shoved to get at him, especially the women, as they all shouted at once.
“Rowdy, Rowdy can I have your autograph!”
“We love you Rowdy!”
“I want to bear your children!”
“I wanna get rough and Rowdy with you!”
The driver of the SUV, a big bald beefy bodyguard-type moved people aside, lining them up like he’d done this a million times. Once he had everyone somewhat organized, he took a box of baseballs from the vehicle and started passing them out to excited kids.
While Bodyguard Dude handled crowd control, Rowdy stood beneath a security light, signing autographs, shaking hands and clapping backs. His laughter burst the dawn, warm and friendly.  He wore a baseball cap embroidered with the logo of the Stardust Drillers, the local high school baseball team cocked jauntily on his head. Tight fitting Levi jeans hugged muscular thighs, and a simple white T-shirt accentuated his tanned skin. He moved with the impertinent, nimble-limbed strut of a man fully at ease with life.
She couldn’t take her eyes off him. What she wouldn’t give to be one of those kids again.
Rowdy glanced up, and stared through the crowd. 
Heated estrogen cruised Breeanne’s veins, settled deep in her pelvis. Her stomach pinched, and her heart gave a funny stutter that had nothing to do with the medication she was on. Soon, she’d be able to go off even that, prescription free for the first time in her twenty-five years.
For one heartbeat of a second their eyes met. Full on freight-trains-on-the-same-track-speeding-straight-toward-each-other collided. Bam.
Oh.
My.
God.
She could almost hear the screech of metal, smell smoke, feel the jolting impact. She ceased breathing. Ceased thinking. Ceased doing anything except staring at him.
Cool blue eyes, the arresting color of a clear mountain stream, gave her a startling shock. Cheekbones like flint rock. Chiseled chin. Knockout jaw dusted with beard stubble. One corner of his mouth lifted, telegraphing her a gorgeous lopsided grin. Slowly, he winked as if they shared an intimate secret.
And for that sweet second, no one else on earth existed.
