Fast Break: Brooklyn Monarchs, Season 1, Book I

The only way to win is to lose control …

It’s 24/7 money, fame, and game on-and off-the court. But the real action is behind the scenes in Patricia Sargeant’s sizzling pro basketball series, where the stakes are everything and winning means playing for keeps. . .

He’s a two-time MVP and three-time championship winner. He lives to be the best. And now that he’s a first-time coach, DeMarcus Guinn will lead the NBA’s worst team to the top his way – or no way at all. But the team’s fiery franchise owner, Jaclyn Jones, is fighting him at every turn. And their unexpectedly seductive one-on-one is the kind of game time he can’t resist.

Turning her family’s team into winners is Jaclyn’s only hope of saving them and her community. She’s used to being in control, but DeMarcus’s determination – and the way he makes her feel – are like no moves she’s ever seen. And with everything they care about on the line, they’ll have to play to win . . . or lose their hearts.

Smooth Play: Brooklyn Monarchs, Season 1, Book II

One-on-one is the hottest play …

A passion for the game is what it takes to win. But off the court, it takes a different kind of savvy to heat things up. . .

He’s part problem-solver and part dream-maker. There’s not a crisis he can’t avert. And handling the NBA’s most explosive team has put public relations ace Troy Marshall at the top of his game. It also gives him a chance to give back to the community. But one determined reporter is messing with his flow. And he’ll need way more than skill and charm to win this tempting one-on-one.

Andrea Benson’s instincts tell her that something major is going on behind-the-scenes with this franchise. And a headline story is the only way she can regain the career and good name she let slip away. But Troy’s sincerity is throwing her for an unexpected – and very seductive – loop. Can they trust each other enough to uncover the truth – or will too many secrets be their breaking point?
