Book Description:

Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.

Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn't fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.

In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.

When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.

Raine has been so kind as to write up a guest post for us! Here are her writing tips..
Writing Do’s and Don’ts

This is a more challenging topic to address than it seems on the surface. Who am I, really, to tell people what does or doesn't work when it comes to writing? The truth is, what one person says not to do might just work for another person. Are there any really hard and fast rules? If there were, wouldn't we all be following them and achieving confetti-tossing success?

Well, perhaps I’m reading too much into it. Let’s just go with a few things I've learned in the course of publishing seven novels and a couple of short stories. Hopefully this will prove helpful to someone!

When writing, do:
- Listen to constructive criticism. No one’s perfect, and good critiques will strengthen your work.
- Write the story that’s inside you.
- Introduce compelling conflict in your stories.
- Surround yourself with fellow authors and readers, offering and accepting encouragement.
- Believe in yourself.

When writing, don’t:
- Listen to the negative nellies.
- Be afraid. (And even if you are, write it anyway).
- Cave into what you think people will like if it doesn't fit with what you want to write.
- Overlook the importance of good editing.
- Ever, ever give up.

You’ll notice that I don’t really go into the mechanics of writing, as what works and what doesn’t changes regularly and varies by author. Whatever you write, write it bravely and with conviction. That in and of itself will help you on the way to success!
