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.

    "entertaining"

    This is another great book by Sandra Brown. I am a new listener and have made it my goal to have all of her audio's. I have never been disapointed... ever.

    "Summer Fun"

    Enjoyed this entertaining read with a football twist. Current events feature fallen QB's in the news, you would think Ms. Brown ahead of the game. Escape and enjoy.

    "I should have known better...."

    than to buy a book by a female author with a football star as one of the main characters. Not to say it can't be done. But with the title, I just don't know what I was thinking. I'm guessing high school and college girls might enjoy this one.

    I got it because of the Dallas location and thought it might be interesting from that perspective because of the Dallas Cowboys and Southwest Airlines. But it was incredibly predictable and written, it seemed, at a high school level.

    But I do admit, I listened to the end with a lot of fast-forwarding.

    "Hard to put down"

    Sandra Brown is by far my favorite author and each new book is better than the last. I had a little bit of trouble bonding with the hero and the nature of the book made it difficult to feel the romance between the two main characters, but the storyline kept me glued to my Ipod.

    "Like most of Brown's books - a great "read"."

    Not my favorite, but still attention getting and enjoyable! Not as many twists, turns, who done it nor how but like always, I loved the characters. I could also listen to Victor Slezak all day long. :]

    "Typical Sandra Brown..."

    I've read several of her books now and she is quickly my favorite thriller/mystery/ romance author! Great story with twists, great romance, and surprises to keep you enthralled! Victor Slezac is so expressive in his narration, perfect match to Browns's tales...
    if you love any of her books don't miss this one... great for a first too

    "Loved it!!"

    I'm female and love well written romance. So the ending was happy and had hope but the story woven from beginning to end did not disappoint. Audible fan and as long as it's a good story I typically don't pay as much attention to the narrator but consciously enjoyed this narrator. first time I hearing him.
