From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Pamela Aares comes THE HEART OF THE GAME, the sixth book in the Tavonesi family series featuring passion, mystery, and well-won love!
Italian heiress Zoe Tavonesi’s idyllic life has been turned upside down. Her grief-stricken father has uprooted the entire family to the California wine country, shattering Zoe’s plans to open the art gallery her late mother always wanted. But when Cody Bond, the hot catcher for the Giants walks into her life and agrees to ride in her charity polo match, the intriguing American soon has Zoe reconsidering her plans and her dreams.
Estranged from his family, Cody is determined not to screw up his career with relationships, especially when Zoe and the loving, tight-knit, aristocratic Tavonesis remind him of everything his dysfunctional American family isn’t. Cody may be a master of control on the baseball field but his iron will can’t shield him from the desire Zoe ignites.
When Zoe’s family is caught up in a dangerous web of Mafia crime, Cody must swallow his pride and enlist the help of his estranged father, a former CIA operative, to protect her. But will Cody’s inability to trust, and the criminals threatening to destroy Zoe’s family, kill any future for the fiery passion they’ve discovered? Or will Zoe's love free Cody from the past, and help him believe in the power of love?
