Wrecking ball (Playing for Glory nr. 6) – Francine Beaton
198 x 128, 325p.
One feisty red-head. One stubborn Scot. One chance meeting.
When Richie Campbell arrives in Pretoria, he has a reputation a mile long. After yet another brawl with a member of the British press, the Flying Scotsman has no choice but to leave — there’s no longer a place for him in the national team. Richie hopes to find peace and the ability to enjoy his rugby again on the other side of the world. What he did not expect was to meet and fall hard for his Scottish teammate’s sister. Not that it matters. Sarah Mackay appears immune to his best efforts.
Sarah has two rules. One: never date a client. Two: never date a professional sportsman. They have way too much testosterone. She should know; she’s been on the receiving end twice. Sarah adds one more nickname to Richie’s repertoire: Wrecking Ball. Getting involved with him spells disaster. But for how long can Sarah resist his charm, especially when she discovers his secret? And was Richie’s Nan right? Do things happen for a reason?
