His Lucky Charm - Baseball Romance
Publisher: American Sports Romance Club
Gloria Sanchez was never a baseball fan. That is until she saw the new pitcher for the Texas Rangers. David Gutierez, on television at least, was handsome and exceptionally charming. As soon as she saw him, Gloria developed a true interest in the sport. When he comes to the taco truck where she works before his first big game, Gloria can hardly believe her luck. Luck, it turns out, is exactly what David is hoping Gloria can give him. He has a tradition that's won him games ever since he was in high school. He always buys two dozen breakfast tacos the morning of a big game. He doesn't eat all of them, but he has to buy them. If he doesn't, the team may very well lose. His ritual seems well founded when he makes trips to Gloria's taco truck a habit. The Rangers have won every home game since they met. Gloria's starting to think that she is the reason David keeps coming back, not the tacos. When David asks her to come on a road trip with him and the team (with taco making material in tow), her suspicion seems confirmed. She's convinced that this is more than an attempt to win on the road. This is a real date. But what will happen when Gloria discovers that David is more interested in winning than he is in her? A Standalone Short Story with No Cliffhanger!
