New Release: Love Notes and Football (The Blake Boys #5)


Dear Readers,

     Thank you for inspiring me to give Morgan and Seth another story!  Love Notes & Football picks up immediately after Texas Heat.


 New Baby. New Adventures.  Love Deluxe.

Philadelphia Titans quarterback Seth Blake couldn’t be happier. Toddler Jake is growing like a weed, and Seth’s wife Morgan is expecting another baby. He’s just signed a new contract to play football for five more years and has a plan for retirement. Things couldn’t be better…until an unexpected family crisis turns the world upside down for them all.

Morgan Blake is ecstatic to become a mom again. The bookstore owner is happily balancing work life, home life, and love life while preparing for their new arrival. But the family is keeping a secret from her. And the secret will threaten the very happiness she’s worked so hard to find.
