The Lucky Charm
Beth Bolden - 2014
. . Izzy Dalton’s about to strike out. Her new job as the sideline reporter for the Portland Pioneers major league baseball team is problematic on several levels: 1.

Her last experience in front of a camera was in college. Six years ago. 4. The Pioneers’ second baseman has a wicked sense of humor and even wickeder blue eyes. AND A FULL COUNT. . . Jack Bennett couldn’t be more uninterested in a little sideline action. He just wants to show up at the park and win baseball games. Izzy is the one woman he should steer clear of, but she’s also the key to his success–and his heart, too.
