love-of-the-gameA sexy sports superstar discovers his body isn’t the only thing that needs healing in this newest Stardust, Texas novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde.

With major league good looks and talent, Dallas Gunslingers relief pitcher Axel Richmond was living the good life.

But now with an injured shoulder and his career on the line, Axel is stuck recuperating at a ranch in Stardust, Texas . . . striking out only with his gorgeous physical therapist.

Kasha Carlyle has one week to get Axel back in action or she can kiss her much-needed job with the Gunslingers goodbye.

She quickly learns that Axel’s guarded heart also needs healing . . . requiring all kinds of sneaky plays and sexy moves in extra innings.

Why I LUST After Love Of The Game? 

Even though I wasn’t a huge fan over the story, the cover is just so beautiful!!! I love the kiss over the lake with the candles, so romantic and sweet. And it does fit a scene in the book, and I just love that when publishers make sure the cover matches the story in those little ways.
