While writing IN IT TO WIN IT,
I discovered Grayson Pierce needed a friend,
a class-A jerk, a simple placeholder to give Jane a hard time.
The guy didn't even have a first name.
Then one day, this came in from a reviewer:
"However, Xavier, what a nice piece of raw meat, he is Grayson's teammate and needs his own story A.S.A.P."
Since a writer's mind never stops, I began to wonder.
Why was Xavier such a jerk?
And what the hell was his first name?!
*drum roll please*
Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to introduce
Matthias Xavier III
Back Cover Text:
Xavier is a jerk with a capital A.S.S. and he offers no apologies. If a woman is willing to give, he’ll gladly take, walking away without a backward glance. He’s not looking for commitment and the only diamond he’s interested in has three bases and a home plate.
Dr. Frances Holden knows all about fixing broken bones and taming arrogant athletes. As the Team Doctor for the Las Vegas Rockets she deals with stubborn ballplayers every day. But nobody is more stubborn than Left Fielder, Matthias Xavier III.
When a shoulder injury takes Xavier out of the game, it’s Frankie’s job to get him back on the diamond. His rehab turns out to be more than either of them bargained for, and when she promises to help him face his scarred past, neither of them are prepared for the fireworks that come Out of Left Field and threaten to scorch them both.
