Conor Nash has lived his life with a single purpose—to pitch in the Major Leagues. He’s been released from professional baseball contracts ten times over a sixteen-year career, but he’s overcome every obstacle to finally reach The Show when he’s a decade too old.

As he faces the specter of injury-forced retirement, he becomes a man neither he nor his wife recognizes. During his career, Conor avoided the trap of alcohol and drugs because his drug was baseball. And what can an addict do when he realizes he will never get that high again?

Conor climbs treacherous Camelback Mountain, drinks a bottle of Champagne, recalls people and events, and seeks an answer. Who is Conor Nash if he can’t pitch?

The Conman is based on the Life of Keith Comstock. Keith pitched professionally for sixteen years, including Major League time with The Seattle Mariners, the San Diego Padres, the San Francisco Giants and the Minnesota Twins. Following his retirement in 1992, Keith has held minor league coaching and managing positions with several organizations.  For the past decade he has served as the rehabilitation instructor for the Texas Rangers.

Excerpt

Sunday



"I really enjoyed our dinner. Thank you for going with me." Bo
paused. "Crap, that's my dad's voice, come on." He wrapped Sunday's
hand in his and pulled her forward just as his father and the group of men he
was with rounded the corner, Bo sank deeper into the bushes, pulling Sunday
against him. She glanced up; they were so close, she could feel his warm breath
on her face, smell the toasted sugar from the Crème Brûlée they had shared. As
swiftly as he had reacted and pulled her into him, he lowered his mouth to
hers.

The breeze whipped through her hair, the branches of the shrub poked into her
skin, but nothing was going to make her pull away. She couldn't believe that
she was acting so scandalous, so unprofessional, so Adeline.

That lost thought made her smile.

Bo didn't break their connection as he opened one eye to stare at her. Sunday
wondered if his father had walked past yet.

"Your dad?" She tried to whisper around his lips that were still on
hers.

"He's right behind you," Bo whispered against Sunday's lips before
resuming his assault on her mouth.

Sunday used these last few seconds, however long she had to examine him, feel
him, how firm were his muscles, his chest? She ran one hand along the placket
of his shirt, her fingers lightly slipping between the buttons to touch his
undershirt. She had been expecting warm skin. The disappointment was like
picking up a glass and expecting to drink soda, but after you swallowed,
discovering it was plain ole water. It was startling enough to pull Sunday back
to her senses. She looked up and realized that Kai was long gone. Her cheeks
turned a rosy pink. Bo noticeably stiffened. He must have been bracing himself
for her rising anger. But she refused to give it to him--she had wanted that
kiss just as much. Instead, she let out a huff and marched off, no shouts, no
witty comebacks, nothing.

"Come on, Sunday, please. You can't tell me you didn't like it. It was
wonderful. Admit it. I mean . . . I liked it. I wanted to kiss you. I've been
wanting to kiss you.”


***


Bo



He stood under the scorching hot water flow over his body. Maybe it would wake
him up and make him realize that sharing a room with Sunday Prescott was a big
mistake. The woman had no clue that her innocence was a turn on, making her a
bit beguiling. He was allowing the lower half to think for the upper half. But
he needed to relieve this pressure, this ache he had for that infuriating
woman.

Thoughts of her fiery temper and her bright smile filled his mind as he slid
his hand down his growing penis. Squeezing the base, he released a guttural
moan. The water sloshing over him aided him as he stroked from the shaft
upward, his thumb capturing at the underside of the head.

Her laughter. He stroked slowly and steadily and then quickened.

Her damn scent. He stroked faster as the release built inside him. The way her
lips felt on his. The storm that had brewed inside him thundered out with each
thrust of his hips into the air, no warm woman, no Sunday.

Rider by L. Wilder

Title: Rider
Series: Satan's Fury MC - Memphis Chapter
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: December 10, 2019
Cover Design: Mayhem Cover Creations
Cover Model: Blake Johansson




I’d spent years trying to put the past behind me. I wanted to forget the mistakes I’d made, the dreams I’d lost, but they were a part of me. They made me the man I’d become—a brother of Satan’s Fury MC.


I wore my cut with pride. It was a constant reminder of how far I’d come and who’d helped me get there. I thought I had my life all figured out when Darcy Harrington, a blast from my past, came walking into the Satan’s Fury garage. 

I'd grown up with the strong-willed, foulmouthed beauty and even then wanted to make her mine. But she had her guard up, never letting anyone get too close, including me. 

That was about to change. Come hell or high water, I was going to break down her walls and prove I was a man she could trust.

I’d learned to fight for what I wanted, and I wanted her.


  
  




Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.
