This is an excerpt from my newest novel, Faith 15, book two in the Men of Faith series.
“A regular guy,” Cooper mumbled. “All I'm hoping is for Cali to see me as a regular guy.” As he ran the tip of his toe over the weathered deck board wondering how much further to expose himself, Jason Aldean's voice cut through the silence with a heated, country drawl promising something about memories and tattoos. Burke smiled at Cooper’s latest choice of ring tones and reached for his abandoned coffee cup before Cooper could manage another word.

Cooper Hensen is back in the Midwest, a place that holds haunting memories for him. Worse, he’s been labeled the newcomer, the guy now responsible for replacing a pro bowl, quarterback superstar destined for the hall of fame. And while the other guy’s name graces everything around the city from a children’s hospital to a golf course and philanthropic foundation, people keep misspelling Cooper’s, driving him crazy. Twice in as many weeks he’s heard his neighbor, a die-hard other guy fan, refer to him as Copper. Seriously?
Cali Carter is a hard charging, no non-sense district attorney determined to clean up the city of Indianapolis. But lately things have shifted and she’s felt torn between her work and the position she fought so hard to achieve, and helping her sister, who’s struggling to manage her own young family and run the small café where she’s invested all of her heart, not to mention her life savings.
When a bossy, quick thinker who likes to fix things meets a man with incredible potential clouded by a haunted past, can two household names find a balance of power within their relationship and share the spotlight?
