Just for you...a quick description of FOR THE LOVE OF THE DAME, and an excerpt for you to enjoy.
FOR THE LOVE OF THE DAME
Major League baseball star Car Bradford wants one thing; to get his son away from his unfit ex-wife. In order to do that, he needs the help of her dad (and his boss) who demands a strange ransom; pretend to be having a affair with a beautiful, curvy opera singer to get her the media attention she needs to nab the part of a lifetime.
Italian opera singer, Sofia de’ Medici wants one thing: to sing Carmen in a first-rate New York opera house. She has escaped the clutches of her domineering father and come to America to achieve her dream, but can she overcome her own sweet nature and innocent but voluptuous beauty to take on the role of opera’s greatest femme fatale?
The trouble is they have nothing in common. She’s quirky; he’s conventional. He hates her shoes; she hates his truck. She loves food; he sees it as food.
But as they spend more time together, their awkward charade grows into a passion neither of them ever expected.
Can the star athlete and the sensuous diva get past their differences long enough to realize that they’ve both found the one thing they never knew they always wanted?
