The Boys of Summer
Whether you’re a sports fan or not, it’s hard not to find something to like in pro baseball—as in the number of truly hot guys who take to the field during the season. And although I’m not really a baseball fan, I have no problem checking out the guys—all in the name of research, of course!
Some of you may know that in addition to my historical romances, I also write contemporary romance with my husband under the pen name of VK Sykes. We’ve just released PAYOFF PITCH, book 5 in our USA Today Bestselling, award-winning series about a pro baseball team called The Philadelphia Patriots. My husband, who is a baseball fan, takes care of all the sports-related details while I look after the hot guy part of the research. And because I’m such a giver, I’m going to share the results of that research with you today!
Here are some of my top candidates for the boys of summer and why:
1. Dustin Ackley – great eyes
2. Angel Pagan – so brooding
3. Torii Hunter – great smile
4. David Robertson – looks great in a suit
5. Huston Street – no explanation necessary
6. Franklin Gutierrez – gorgeous, soulful face
7. Barry Zito – love a big, brawny guy
That’s my list, folks—do you have one? Who are some of your favorite athletes, or do you not even bother with sports? Two people who comment will win copies of my VK Sykes anthology, THE PHILADELPHIA PATRIOTS – books 1 through 3 in the series!

He’s a billionaire ballplayer…
Noah Cade, pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots, has big problems. He’s recovering from a serious injury and he’s just been saddled with his sick aunt’s crazy dogs. Then there’s his dad, a wealthy oilman who wants Noah to retire from baseball and step into his shoes as CEO of the family corporation. All Noah wants is to pitch again and help his team win the World Series, but his family keeps dragging him in the opposite direction.
She’s a small town girl…
Teddy Quinn moved to the city to start a dog walking business for rich people, hoping the income will pay for law school and help her fight the oil corporations drilling the county where she grew up. When Noah Cade hires her as a full-time dog sitter for his high-energy pets, it seems like the answer to Teddy’s financial woes. But the boundaries get blurred when she starts falling for her boss, who uses all his formidable charm to lure her into his bed.
When Teddy discovers Noah’s father owns Baron Energy, she’s devastated. How can she work for—or love—a man whose family stands for everything she hates?
