In LOVE BATS LAST, the first book in The Heart of the Game series by Pamela Aares, get ready for All-Star alpha males and the strong women they come to love!
A stormy night changes their lives forever...
The baseball diamond isn't the only field for all-star player Alex Tavonesi; he also runs his family's prestigious vineyard. What he can't seem to run is his love life. He's closing in on the perfect vintage and the perfect game, but so far the perfect woman has eluded him.
Veterinarian Jackie Brandon is eluding her aristocratic past and memories of a soccer star who jilted her just before their wedding. She devotes herself to a marine mammal rescue center on the northern California coast, where hundreds of seals and sea lions are washing up dead.
A chance meeting in a midnight storm brings Alex and Jackie together to rescue a stranded whale. Watching her work, he realizes she's the passionate, courageous woman he thought he'd never find--he just has to overcome her deep distrust of jocks. Jackie’s passion and courage lead her to discover what's killing the sea mammals. The culprits want to silence her, and Alex is the only one standing in their way. What will he sacrifice to save the woman he loves?

After a break from reading due to personal issues I was worried I'd lost that little spark with finding enjoyment from reading. However, this is not the case.
Pamela so far has got me addicted to reading again and I'm so relieved about that.
I am in love with the book so far and if I have nothing to do or can manage multi-tasking I'm reading: eating, waiting for people, before bed, waking up, just going for a drive to somewhere quiet and sitting with my kindle!
Loving Jackie, Alex, Gage and the Seals :)
Awww, I am so in love with these two! I think it's the fact that they don't jump straight into bed together and there isn't no cheesy chat up lines (which i'm not against) but it was nice to see true love develop between normal people.
I never saw the twist coming... Well, I did... But not over that... If that makes sense, I guessed that certain people were involved and that it was based were it was.... Just not the cover!
The flow of the story is perfect, I never got bored or thought about skipping ahead... the whole book was written perfectly. Pamela, you're a genius!
I'm excited to get started on book two tonight :)
Everyone must read this book!!
