Hale Seton is no stranger to the locker room.
After her career crashes and burns on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, ex-snowboard champion, Hale Seton, puts her toughness to the test when she sets her sights on the cutthroat world of professional sports management.
With six overachieving athletic brothers, Hale knows from experience that representing men whose egos are as big as their paychecks is a brutal business, but she never expects to find her first client dead, and her only other prospect at the top of the suspect list.
Hale's got just enough time to make a play for the real killer, but there seems to be an abundance of people who wanted the rookie bad boy dead—including her brother, Denver’s golden boy quarterback.
Pitted against the press, her own doubts, a pair of thugs hired by a less-than-ethical doctor, and the advances of her superstar ex-lover, Hale needs a Hail Mary of her own to keep her boys on the gridiron and herself from becoming the next victim.
