Growing up, Ace Dalton had dreams of playing in the NFL. Today, he’s a wide receiver for the California Predators. With a multi-million dollar salary and a playboy reputation, he can have any woman he wants—except Sylvia McMasters. Everybody tells him she’s out of his league, but twelve years ago, they shared an erotic encounter that he’s never been able to forget.
Recently widowed, Sylvia McMasters spends her days raising money for her philanthropic efforts. Her late husband left her with wealth, connections, and an empty bed. When she sees Ace at a charity event, she realizes the attraction she felt for him over a decade ago burns even hotter than ever. The problem is he’s a womanizer who can’t be trusted. She’s not trying to be another notch on his belt.
When Ace offers Sylvia a staggering donation in exchange for one night with her, she sees the chance to get the money her charity so desperately needs. She agrees, telling herself it’s for a good cause. Can Ace convince her he’s that good cause? Or will she continue to think she’s out of his league?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love reunion stories. This one started with two kids in college who met 12 years later. I wanted readers to see their story and how they'd changed, yet remained the same over the years. Their passion for each other never died.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Ace Dalton is a character from one of my other novels centering around a fictional football team. I like writing about athletes because they make such great anti heroes. They're often misjudged and misunderstood. Beneath all that alpha dog personality is a beta male waiting to burst out. My heroine, Sylvia McMasters is classy, cultured, and rich. She reminds me of a black pearl. But part of her wants to take a walk on the wild side. She needs a man like Ace to take her there. When they come together, their conflict fuels their passion.
