"Behind the Pitch" is a novella set in the "Chasing Serenity" universe and is told in Declan Fraser's point of view. The release date is set tentatively for December/January.
Expat Irish rugby player Declan Fraser only wanted to play the sport he loves. He
didn’t want to be stuck in this middle-of-nowhere town at this all too quaint
university. He didn’t want his team captain to be an entitled jackass who switched
Declan's position on the squad just to make himself look good. And he sure as hell
didn’t want to fall in love with graduate student Autumn McShane.
Autumn is stubborn, but gorgeous; she bristles at any hint of dependency on
anyone or anything, but she’s also a survivor. She’s everything Declan didn’t know
he wanted. When Autumn finds herself in the middle of a challenging bet with her
ex-boyfriend - who just happens to be the arrogant team captain that Declan hates - he feels honor bound to help her out. But he didn’t expect to fall for her in the
“Behind the Pitch” reveals the most twisted and erotic thoughts in Declan’s head as
he navigates through his on again/off again, frustrating and deeply erotic
relationship with Autumn McShane.
And lordy, does he have a filthy mind.
“I…it’s too much.”
Autumn didn’t like losing control. She didn’t like being weak. I understood that, but that moment wasn’t a time to close herself up. I knew she wanted to let go. I knew there was no way I could stop touching her, bringing her closer and closer to the brink. So I gripped her tight, went deeper into her, smoothed my hands down her arse, squeezed, dipped my finger between her cheeks. “Look at me, love.” When my finger went lower, dipped further, her eyes flew open and a slow, lazy smile made the dimples in her face deepen. “There, that’s it.”
“How are you doing that?”
I didn’t answer, not at first, too caught up in the low moans working out of her throat. “Like that, McShane?”
“Ye…yes. Oh God—”
Her body loved how we moved together, how I touched her and when she came, clamped down harder, firmer, I wanted to climb inside her, stay locked with her in that moment, just the hot air of the room and weak whines of her voice keeping us grounded to the earth. I needed her, I knew that, like I never needed anything in my life. “I want you to say my name… like you mean it,” I said, steadying her face between my fingers. “I want you staring in my eyes, looking at me while I fill you up with nothing but my name coming off your lips.” Another pound into her, then two, each harder than the last and then I lowered my voice, latched my teeth onto her earlobe. “Do you mean it, McShane?”
“I…I do,” she said, her voice cracking when I pushed deeper.
“Then say it. Say it for me, love.”
“Declan.” She said my name like a promise and anything I felt before, any hope I ever had of never looking back, fell away completely.
Yep. Definitely in love with her.
The scent and taste of her, the feel of her around me, gripping me, touching me, was my undoing and I knew I’d explode soon. My eyelids lowered, then Autumn tightened her hold on me just a bit further when she touched my face. “I need to see you too.”
Completely, ruddy done for.

Graduate student Autumn McShane has had her share of heartbreak. She's been
abandoned and betrayed and she lost her beloved mother in a tragic car accident
five months ago. That loss damaged her body and fractured her spirit but she's
learning to recover, until her ex-boyfriend returns to town, intent on making her life
Declan Fraser hates her ex as much as Autumn does, but the last thing she needs is to put her trust in the hands of another man, especially one like Declan: his hard
body and lulling Irish accent makes more than a few girls weak-kneed. The talented
rugby player is rude and sarcastic, with tattooed, muscular arms and a cocky
attitude, but he's the only one who can help Autumn win an ill-advised bet that, if
lost, could cost her more than she's willing to pay. The reluctant alliance between
Declan and Autumn stirs up cravings she doesn't want to admit, but Declan is a
hard man to resist.
Just when Autumn starts letting down her carefully constructed walls to the sexy
bad boy, he betrays her when she needs him most. Autumn suspects Declan has
secrets, and she is determined to uncover what drove him away from her, even if
that means fraternizing with the enemy. But will the truth return Declan to her arms
or add to the scars on her heart?
