He's through playing games.
Antonio Ramirez is ready to leave his wild reputation behind in New York and adopt a more respectable life with the Texas Mustangs. When he spies the woman of his dreams at a Fundraiser—its love at first sight. Convincing Clare Kincaid that he’s sincere is harder than he expected. Giving Clare what she wants could wreck his career and compromise his feelings for her.
When super sexy Antonio Ramirez approaches her, Clare is sure he’s playing a cruel game, but the Mustangs new Center Fielder won’t take no for an answer. She might be convinced of his sincerity if only he would invite her to play the one game she longs to play.
Antonio kisses Clare for the first time:
He moved fast. One arm snaked around her waist, the other around her shoulder. He hauled her body tight against his before her brain could process what was going on and formulate a protest. Then his mouth was on hers, stealing her breath, her last thread of sanity, and her pride.
For a moment, it didn’t matter she wasn’t stick thin or cover girl gorgeous. It didn’t matter they were standing in a hallway and absolutely anyone might see them. All she could do was feel. His kiss was everything she had ever dreamed it would be. His lips were hard on hers at first, then softer, coaxing her to let him inside. She opened for him. His tongue stroked hers, rimmed her mouth then plunged deep.
She was lost. No one had ever kissed her like this before. It was carnal. Hot. Seductive. Cream your panties sexy.
Then it was over. His large hand splayed across the back of her head, pressing her forehead into his shoulder. She gasped for breath against his heaving chest.
“Shh,” he whispered. “Don’t move.”
She couldn’t move, even if she wanted to—which she didn’t. He held her in an iron grip. Blazing heat warmed her front in counterpoint to the cold at her back. When had he backed her against the concrete wall?
His heartbeat—or was it hers?—thudded in her ears. Coming to her senses, she picked out the separate and distinct sound of footsteps. Coming closer. Oh God. She was going to get caught making out with Antonio Ramirez in the stadium!
