Blog Tour + Teaser + Giveaway: A Numbers Game by Tracy Solheim

Author Bio:
Author Tracy Solheim has written her share of best sellers and note-worthy books. Unfortunately most of them line the shelves of dusty government offices around the world never to see the light of day. She hopes to change that with her series of contemporary romantic fiction novels published by Berkley Books.

“I guess you could say I’m a frustrated sports writer at heart, but I love writing—and reading—books centered around sports. I can thank my dad for that. He introduced me to Dick Francis novels when I was a teenager and I was hooked. I am also a big fan of the happily ever after endings of romance novels, so it was only natural that I combined the two elements in my fiction debut.”

Love is worth more than the sum of its hearts…

CPA Merrit Callahan learned early not to let passion unravel her orderly life. Back in college she fell hard for a football player, only to be devastated when she discovered he’d been duping her all along—dared by his teammates to score with his bookish tutor. Now, after her back-stabbing fiancĂ© breaks off their engagement, Merrit flees to Baltimore to escape the fallout.

After eight years in the pros, a series of concussions have forced Heath Gibson out of the NFL. The transition from player to coach for the Baltimore Blaze hasn’t been smooth, but finding himself face-to-face with Merrit Callahan makes the ride even rockier. He’s been filled with regret ever since a stupid team prank caused Merrit to run away from him a decade earlier.

Merrit’s stunned to reconnect with Heath. And despite the authenticity of his reignited feelings this time around, Merrit’s got her mind set on payback. She’ll give Heath a night he won’t forget and then walk away. But Heath’s hold on her heart—and the rest of her body—is difficult to break…

Includes a preview of the next Out of Bounds novel, Risky Game.

Teaser from A Numbers Game:

Heath rubbed his hands through his hair, squeezing his throbbing temples as he tried to come up with a plan to get Merrit alone.
“Heath.”  There was that siren’s song again.  He turned to face her; surprised she hadn’t finished her escape.  Her getaway ten years ago had been immediate and unexplained.
“It was great to seeing you again.  Maybe we can catch up some more after dinner?”
He wanted to slap his head.  Her abrupt role reversal made him think his brain was playing tricks on him again.  But she was standing there, three yards from him, her brother waiting at the ballroom door.  Heath searched her face for some indication of why she’d suddenly changed tactics.  Merrit had been the most genuine girl he’d known.  Until he’d ruined her.  Her eyes gave nothing away and Heath decided he might not get another chance. 
“That sounds great.  How about we meet back home?”
A slight tremor passed through her body.  Someone who didn’t know her intimately wouldn’t have picked it up, but Heath knew her—and her body—too well.  She jerked her chin up and gave him a nod before retreating into the ballroom on the arm of her brother.

Don't forget:


  1. I honestly haven't read any recently that stuck with me. Of course, I haven't read any of Tracy's books, so maybe that's the problem. ;-)

  2. Glenda, I hope you'll give my books a try! Thanks for hosting me, Melody!

  3. I'm not a big sports fan so that scenario won't be the first thing to make me pick up a book but I am partial to Bianca Sommerland's Cobra series and anything to do with MMA. Thanks for sharing your books with us :)
