*COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. My winner of the download of COLE, chosen by from comments below is bookattict. An email is being sent to the winner. Thank you to all to participated and to the sponsor blogs who organized this great event Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews AND Under the Covers *


There are lots of different sports in the world, and each one has their standout athletes as well as their standout hotties. It doesn’t matter if it’s Football. Baseball. Rodeo Cowboys. Swimmers. Soccer–I dare any woman to tell me she didn’t sigh a little when soccer great David Beckham’s underwear commercial came on during the Super Bowl. Even though I’m not a sports kinda gal, I certainly can appreciate looking at a nice ‘tight end’ in a team uniform. I’ve even written an athlete or two. Since it’s July, let’s talk baseball and let me introduce you to my small town pro ballplayer, Cole Ryan.

COLE Red, Hot & Blue, Book 5


One night can leave a trail a decade long.

Ten years ago, a wicked curve ball and a scout for the major leagues gave Cole Ryan his big break. Before he set foot on the bus to training camp, Lizzie Barton gave him everything…then inexplicably broke his heart.  Now he’s back in Pigeon Hollow with a bum arm and a cancelled contract. Lizzie is still there, still keeping her secrets. Still haunting his dreams.

To make sure Cole would have the future he wanted, Lizzie kept her crush on her older brother’s best friend to herself. But in this small town, there was no hiding the results of her one and only night in his arms. With Cole away playing ball, it was easy to pretend he would never know. But now that he’s back it’s only a matter of time.

Right about the time Cole figures out what he left behind, cameras for a reality TV show arrive to film Lizzie’s brother. And suddenly Cole is scrambling to keep the spotlight out of his and Lizzie’s private life…and to convince her they can still make both their dreams come true.

This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release.

Warning: Contains love that conquers a decade of sitting on the bench…and one night of sex that resulted in a big change in two lovers’ lifetime stats.

You definitely don’t want to miss the lead in to Cole,  JARED featuring hot horseman Jared Gordon, or the follow-up story, BOBBY featuring that brooding sexy deputy sheriff Bobby Barton, to find out what happens to the people of the town of Pigeon Hollow when Hollywood camera crews move in!

  1. With the Olympic trials going on right now, I am loving Olympians – especially Ryan Lochte, swimmer. But I have been stuck on cowboys for a bit now – so horse riders, bull riders, etc.

  2. If you’re throwin PBR riders in there….they are definitely on top of my list! But I love me some football & i enjoying reading all sports books! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂 raynman1979 at yahoo dot com

  3. I’d say lacrosse players! Thanks for the giveaway, Cat! I love your books!
    Kanya 😉

  4. An unassuming one, I can’t stand the over inflated egos of most athletes. I also like them very fit, not fat like so many. That narrows it down to soccer or lacrosse players ;).


  5. Hockey guys are my favorites, absolutely. I tend to fall for the ones who have to struggle and work extra-hard to make it…the flashy ones who make it look too easy turn me off. And I love Ryan Lochte as well!

  6. I love to watch baseball but when Rugby’s on TV I’ll be watching it!

  7. I’d say all of them. When they run around getting all sweaty, wanting water and/or a towel, needing help off with their uniforms. I could help them with that.

  8. I’d have to go for – all of the above, baseball, football, soccer, swimmers, NASCAR drivers – you name it – I like-y!!

  9. I got it already, but might as well answe anyway…I LOVE me some FOOTBALL players!!!! All those yummy muscles, man I’m a goner!!!!

  10. For me it’s hockey players. The grace with which they move across the ice to the somewhat animalistic displays when they tangle with other players. Also, who wouldn’t want to get body checked by a hunky hockey player? 😉

  11. I have to say it would be NASCAR and Rodeo…I always feel the need for speed and what is more sexy than a Cowboy shirtless in his spurs! They are both just so swoon worthy IMHO!!

  12. Tennis players soccer skaters,Olympic swimmers divers ,track & field foot ballers wat over size they can come N any & every exotic colors((yum)) they all appeal 2,sexy nonstop wicked HOT. I loveem all alOT!

  13. I’m going to say football players… But I have a feeling that you’re going to make me say baseball players, after I read this book.

  14. Any sport athlete works for me. They all look hot and yummy.


  15. With the Olympics coming I get to drool over male gymnasts and the swimmers yummy! Carin mawmom(at)gmail(dot)com

  16. I forgot about Cowboys 🙂 , but I love football, baseball, swimmers, wrestlers I could go on LOL.


  17. Tennis and Rugby players.
    Being in the UK I don’t get to see much of American sports on TV but the superbowl is usually shown here!

  18. I dirty sweaty Jock lol I’m versatile, if they are muscle bound, shirtless and sweaty, I’m drooling

    forgot my e-mail


  19. Oh so many to choose from. Hockey players, cowboys, baseball players. I choose not to discriminate and will take one of each 😉

  20. One who plays at 110% all the time, uses all his muscles. He must also be confident, smart, honest, loyal, be a bad boy, have a sense of humor and respect his partner.

  21. Football players do it for me…I love butts and those bums in the uniforms…YUM! As a teen, I loved Ted Simmons from the Milwaukee Brewers because he had a nice bum in his uniform! Yep, I’m a bum girl!

  22. I actually don’t watch sports. But I have been known to watch bull riding. Something about a bull rider is just really hot!

    Oops forgot my email.
