Follow the Bengals from the excitement of opening day to the thrill of the post season in three scorching romances from Abigail Barnette! * Long Relief - Successful entrepreneur Maggie Harper has lived and breathed baseball since birth. But when her father leaves her the Grand Rapids Bengals in his will, she's in over her head. Orchestrating a successful season is foreign territory, complicated by a sizzling one-night stand with a player who definitely wants something more. Veteran pitcher Chris Thomas knows his days as a player are numbered, but Maggie's hot-and-cold act is driving him to distraction. Now, he has to make the choice between his love of the game and his love for Maggie. * Double Header - When Javier Vargas was traded to the Grand Rapids Bengals, he didn't just leave his team behind... he turned his back on the love of his life. Now, a year later, Zach Martin is playing for the Bengals, as well, and Javier can't believe he ever walked away from the scorching heat between them. Javier screwed up one chance with Zach, and he's not about to let a second one slip by. With scandals swirling all around the team, he has to choose between his career and his heart, and in the end, he might have to sacrifice both. * Triple Play - It's been an incredible year for the Grand Rapids Bengals. For Eva Colchado, local sports writer, the season is about to get a lot more interesting. She's about to break a major story exposing a gambling scandal that involves the team - while getting involved with two players, herself. When Taylor Coburn made a silly bet with the cute reporter, he had no idea that she would follow through on it. Now, poised to win the league championship, he and fellow player Jeron Curtis have a lot more at stake: a hot, no-strings-attached three way with Eva.
