She wants to save the Knights…

When Miranda Callahan’s father, principle owner and hands-on dictator of the Georgia Knights, has a heart attack, the responsibility to make the team an independent success becomes solely hers. Though everyone expects her to fail in her new role, Miranda is determined to take her team to the top and earn her father's love and respect on the way. The only other obstacle is the League's consultant – a secret crush from her past – the man trying to take over the team, and the one person who can save them all.

He wants revenge…

Lucas Wainright is a turnaround consultant, hired by the League to save the Knights and so many other teams – only this time it’s personal; before being ousted by Seamus Callahan, Lucas' family had been the owners of the team. Now, he has the perfect opportunity to regain his rightful position with the Knights, if he’s willing to suppress his scruples and his attraction to Miranda Callahan.

Can Miranda and Lucas let go of old grudges and hold on to their new love?




I loved the different way this story took place in the second Knights of Passion novel. This is a sports-theme romance, but it not about the players. This book is set behind the scenes with the running of Georgia Knights. Miranda Callahan is in charge of the club after her controlling father, Seamus, has a heart attack. He also order to to make sure the team wins the series.
     This is a good character driven story. Miranda is smart and talented with a knack for knowing how to make deals and who the best players are for the team. She also wants to prove to her father that she has what it takes to bring the team to victory. A huge challenge comes when the league assigns her a consultant. He just happens to be someone that she knows, Lucas Wainwright.
     Lucas and Miranda know each other and their families have some history. They used to have crushes on each other, but life changed things. Now they are wary of each other because of the baseball business. They sport a lot of tension off of each other and the chemistry was pretty darn hot. The story kept me riveted because you see Lucas do a lot of soul searching. His father used to own the team and one side of him wants revenge for his father. Ms Ryder keeps you wondering if Lucas will do the right thing...for the team and for himself and Miranda. All in all, this was another exciting story in the series and I can't wait for the next book!





"Really? So you think that I'll be here, ready to kiss you whenever you want?"
The smile that crossed his face was one of pure male arrogance, confident in his own sex appeal. "Oh yeah. No obligation here."
He stood and stalked around the desk. Too late she realized that she'd poked the tiger and he was deadly serious about his intentions. He swiveled her chair so she faced him, her chair bracketed between his knees. He braced his hands on the arms, trapping her neatly so she couldn't escape. Only she had no intention of trying to get away. That kiss had replayed in her mind several times in the few days since the event and she wanted to see if it was exhaustion that had made it so great, or something else.
She tilted her head to the side and relaxed her body, allowing a small smile to spread across her lips. "So now you're going to prove it was a good kiss? Give it your best shot, lover boy. Let's see what you got."
He leaned forward and gently brushed his lips across her, lightly, as if drawing a feather across her skin. She shivered and he chuckled, a low male sound deep in his throat. His lips skimmed her jaw line, brief, barely whispers of a touch, designed to tease, to taunt, to increase her desire. She moaned and went to reach for him.
"Oh no. Stay still for this." He grabbed her hands with his, and placed them on the arms of the chair, imprisoning them with his own.
He nudged her face up with his nose then rewarded her with a deep kiss, soul stirring yet innocent. After a moment, his tongue slid along the crease of her lips and she opened them, welcoming him in. The kiss quickly turned deeper, hotter, their tongues entwining and exploring. His mouth tasted of coffee and sweetness, like the butter-cream frosting of cake, and she couldn't get enough of it.
Slowly, chest heaving with exertion, he pulled back, resting his forehead on hers while they both caught their breath.
"Still think it was obligation?"
