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.

Wilde's heartfelt third Stardust, Texas contemporary sports romance (after Rules of the Game) pairs an injured ballplayer with an emotionally damaged physical therapist for an explosive romance. Dallas Gunslingers pitcher Axel Richmond's shoulder injury could mean the end of his career and of pursuing his dreams in memory of his baseball-loving son. Enter Kasha Carlyle, a no-nonsense physical therapist. She was adopted by a loving family after her birth mother murdered her birth father, and she has just found out she has a biological half-sister, Emma, who has Down syndrome. Determined to get custody of Emma, Kasha takes on the challenging job of getting Axel back on the mound a job that will give her the stability and generous paycheck she needs, if she can just ignore her explosive chemistry with her patient.
