Heart of the Game | The Tavonesi Series, Book 6
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!
When Cody Bond, the Giants’ hot new catcher, agrees to ride in a benefit polo match to help heiress Zoe Tavonesi, he falls hard for the Italian beauty.
Cody’s 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. But while he may be a master of control on the baseball field, Cody’s iron will can’t shield him from the desire Zoe awakens.
Zoe wants nothing to do with her family’s new home and vineyard in the California wine country. Every day spent in exile from the world she loves in Rome feels like an eternity. Her heart’s set on returning to Italy and opening the art gallery her late mother always wanted. But the passion Cody fires has her second-guessing her plan and her dreams.
Just as they open to love, Zoe’s family is caught up in a dangerous web of Mafia crime. To protect her, Cody must swallow his pride and turn to an ex-CIA operative for help—his estranged father—even as he suspects that Zoe’s family is involved in foul play.
But will Cody’s inability to trust, and the criminals threatening to destroy Zoe’s family, kill any future for the world-altering passion they’ve discovered? Or will Zoe’s love free Cody from the past, and help him believe in the power of love?
