Sophia Moretti I've been abused by my husband, Lazzaro, for nearly the entire time of our twenty-five years of marriage. When my eighteen-year-old daughter, Isabella, saw my most recent injuries, she suggested we both leave my abusive husband while I was still able. She feared I wouldn't survive the next beating. After deciding on a location that was nothing more than a speck on the map, we packed up as much as our car would hold and left Nebraska for Seashell Island.
I knew starting over wouldn't be easy, but maybe island life could offer some peace and tranquility we both desperately needed. When we arrived on the island, it was everything I dreamed of and everything I needed. But I didn't expect to meet a man who had the potential to change my life. Tony Romano Since my wife died of cancer several years ago, I've spent every day mourning her and the loss of the life we had.

I didn't know for sure what caused her injuries, but my age and wisdom told me someone was responsible. The more I got to know Sophia, the more my attraction for her grew. The only problems were that I couldn't let go of my deceased wife and Sophia's husband wasn't ready to let go of her.
The New York Times bestselling author of Big Girl Panties and The Sweet Spot is back with a funny, sweet, and sizzling novel about the game of love, in which a hot quarterback must figure out how to score big with a beautiful and talented media analyst after a heartbreaking fumble.
