Publisher's Summary

Deadly consequences ensue when an eccentric millionaire, crippled in a tragic accident, hires a fallen football hero (and ex-con) to impregnate his wife.

Griff Burkett was a school-of-hard-knocks kid, abandoned by his mother, adopted by his high-school football coach. Under his tutelage, Griff earned a scholarship to play college ball and then a multimillion-dollar contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Griff had a good heart, but his Achilles heel was his arrogance, and his gambling. At the end of his career, deep in debt, a local organized-crime kingpin offers him a chance to resolve his loans by throwing a game. Griff agrees, and walks straight into an FBI sting.

After serving time, Griff finds only closed doors. Then he is summoned to the mansion of eccentric millionaire airline owner Foster Speakman. Speakman, a recluse since a car accident left him crippled, is impotent. He offers Griff half a million dollars to impregnate his wife Laura, discreetly, and with manifold rules. One of which is, if Griff succeeds, he will leave town and never see his child as long as he lives.

Griff has few options. He's still hounded by Detective Stanley Rodarte, who organized the gambling sting, and seems set upon ruining Griff's life. Griff has little means of earning a living, no family, and few friends. So he agrees - only to quickly realize he's been set up.

    "Loved it!"

    This was an awesome book. Jusr enough suspense, romance and a bit twisted. Of course having lived in the Dallas area most of my life, I loved the similar sounding names; such as the airline, and the description of places that made me say "I've been there"!

    You won't regret buying this book. Enjoy!

    "Play Dirty"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book although the plot is somewhat bizarre. The twists and turns of the plot are good,easy to listen to with believable characters. The reader's voice (Victor Slezak)was pleasant and appropriate for the "football" text being read. I have found myself looking for other Sandra Brown books with him as narrator.

    "An excellent change!"

    I am a huge fan of: Grisham, Childs, Deaver, etc... I wanted a change, but not a total re-hab. This book was dead on. Not only is the writing crisp, fast and engaging, but the reader is absolutely perfect for the material...
    I travel extensively and therefore listen to many books; this is a hands down winner - BUY IT and ENJOY!

    "Poor characters"

    The rich, successful business woman falls for a criminal jock because he buys her sexual lubrication? All male readers should buy stock in Astro-lube.
