In this grudge match, the first to score…

When style columnist Matilda Kent accidentally lets slip that she was once involved with the captain of the Sydney Smoke rugby team, she suddenly finds herself elevated to the position she’s always wanted – feature writer. The catch? She’s stuck doing a six-part series on her ex. Still, there’s no way she can turn down a promotion…or the chance to dish the dirt on the guy who so callously broke her heart.

…could win it all!

Tanner Stone wants to be involved in a feature series about as much as he wants to snap an Achilles. But the thought of seeing Tilly again is a bonus—and has him more worked up than he wants to admit. Only he’s not prepared for how different she is – all cool and professional. His Tilly is still in there, though…and he still wants her, now more than ever. All he has to do is charm her into giving him a rematch. And this time, winner takes all!

Yes, he'd screwed up. Big time. Yes, he had a lot of making up to do. But he hadn't realized how much he'd missed her. Until now.

Playing by Her Rules was a slow, but sexy, second chance romance where the Hero— a hot Australian rugby football player—has to play by the rules of his long-lost, but never forgotten, love so he can score off the field and win the biggest game of all...her.

This time I'm playing to win."

Easily an enjoyable read, and definitely well-written, Playing by Her Rules is a good *kick off for the beginning of the Sydney Smoke Rugby series.

"Time to let go of the past."
