“Katie Rose writes sexy, skilled sports heroes who know how to treat a woman right!” raves Wendy S. Marcus. Now the award-winning author of the Bad Boys of Baseball series introduces a team of soccer stars who score on and off the pitch. New Jersey Hurricanes striker Logan Hart lives for the grind of training, the adrenaline of competition, and all the perks of the road—until his ex hands him a baby and tells Logan to raise her on his own. He’s eager to pass this bundle of joy into more capable hands and get back to his hard-playing, hard-partying ways. But when a beautiful, blond drill sergeant of a nanny turns Logan’s life upside down, he sets a new goal: winning her heart. Isabella Bennett takes pride in teaching the rich and famous how to become loving families. Her no-nonsense style is just what Logan and his crying, copper-haired cutie need. So why can’t she get the image of Logan’s tanned, muscular body out of her head? Isabella’s here to whip a new father into shape, not fall for a sexy ladies’ man. But their chemistry is too tantalizing to ignore, much like the temptation to trust someone with her deepest secrets—and embrace a loving family all her own. Praise for Hard to Hold “Fast-paced and scintillating with plenty of romantic angst, this novel is an ideal read for anyone who likes their romance on the steamy side.”—Publishers Weekly “An entertaining read and I’m looking forward to more in this series. Bring on the hot soccer guys, please! Preferably shirtless, when possible.”—Becky on Books . . . and Quilts “I would recommend Hard to Hold by Katie Rose—TOP PICK”—Harlequin Junkie “Hard to Hold, overall, is a classic contemporary romance that will give you everything you want from a good book: swoony moments, cute babies, sexual tension, and a happy ending!”—The Book Disciple “Hard to Hold is a wonderful beginning to Katie Rose’s new Hard to Play series. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait for the next installment.”—Always YA at Heart “A sexy trek into the world of major league soccer with Katie Rose! I really enjoyed this story and the characters.”—Thoughts of a Blonde “Five stars—I loved reading this book. The heat between Isabella and Logan is hot but this book doesn’t have an overabundance of explicit sex and the story itself kept me interested enough I didn’t want to put it down. . . . I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.”—Xtreme Delusions Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
I've worked too long and too hard to abandon my business and home for some sick freak.” Nick snapped back to the present. “At least you're finally prepared to accept he is sick, that this is something more than a sad obsession.
