From tight ends to sliding home to running into love, Scoring collects seven sports stories that are scintillating, sweaty, and sexy. Hard bodies on the baseball field, the cricket field, the hockey rink or the track, these are men all about playing sports and scoring, in more ways than one. Of course, they love their sports, they love their fans, and they also love the men who play along.
V. L. Locey's "Goaltender's Penalty" focuses on the harsh world of ice hockey with a seemingly mismatched couple who are just right for each other. M. Durango contributes "Summertime Blues", a lovely piece about baseball. G.S. Wiley writes intriguingly about cricket in 1930s India in "The National Game", and Indra Vaughn's "All That is Gold" focuses on the lone challenge in running track. Jena Wade contributes "The Slide Home", with charming lovers from America's favorite past-time. Katherine Halle gives us "Calling the Shots", a baseball love story. And Sean Michael has written "Balls and Strikes", a BDSM-tinged tale of the men on the diamond. 
Pick up Scoring and score some romantic, sexy tales all about sporting--and loving-- to win.

Cal "Bullet" Thompson is pitching for the San Antonio Missions while he rehabs from a pulled hamstring. It's taking longer than originally planned for him to get back to the San Diego Padres, or The Show.  He's going through the motions, biding his time, until catcher Todd "Dusty" Springfield pulls on a catcher's mask and squats down behind home plate.
Todd is a fresh bundle of smiles, energy, wit, curly blond hair and bright blue eyes. Within a few pitches he's reading Cal like a book and giving him the signals for the pitches he wants to throw. Cal can already tell they're going to work well together and Todd is going to go far in baseball.
But when Cal is given the all clear and gets called back up to The Show, will all the hard work they've put in both on and off the field go to waste? Or will they continue forming the perfect battery together?

It was supposed to be a fun-filled night at the arena, cheering on the Harrison Hawks, ogling the blond Acadian god/goalie in the crease, and maybe, if he was really lucky, catching an airborne puck with his hands and not his face.
Unfortunately for Daryl Hamilton, his first minor league ice hockey game ends with him catching something with his face, but it's not a puck. It's the fist of his dream goalie, Ryan Amirault. But while his nose may not be thankful for the badly timed autograph request, Daryl can't say that the rest of him isn't pleased with how things are turning out.
Not only is Ryan turning himself inside out to make things right with Daryl, the spark of attraction between the two men is slowly blazing up into a roaring inferno. The only problem – aside from two black eyes – is that Ryan isn't out, there's a viral video of the nose-crunching encounter, and a rather curious sports reporter is snooping around the daycare center where Daryl works. If their new love can survive all that, it will survive anything.

Gerry wants to make a life with Ghost, and he's willing to leave the security of his family to create a family of their own. Now Ghost must decide if that new family is a chance worth taking, and the choice seems clear: Ghost loves Gerry too much already to say no.
