High Heat and Screwball to be published by Berkley!


I can’t share a lot of details yet, but my baseball-themed contemporary novels set in a small town in Indiana will be published by Berkley! The first book, High Heat, will be out next summer. It deals with Tom Cord, a hotshot major league pitcher who is down at the minors rehabbing an injury with the Plainview Thrashers. Sarah Dudley, the owner’s daughter, is assigned to keep him out of trouble, but that proves to be a bigger challenge than she expects.

About Linda Morris

Linda Morris is a multipublished writer of contemporary and historical romance. She writes stories with heart and heat, and a joke or two thrown in. When she's not writing, working, or mommying, she's doing yoga, reading, working in her flower garden, or baking delicious things she probably shouldn't eat. A beat-up old copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss's "Ashes in the Wind" that her mom bought for her at a garage sale years ago was her "gateway drug" into the world of romance novels. Her all-time favorite romance writers include Laura Kinsale, Patricia Gaffney, Elizabeth Delancey, and Marjorie Ferrell. Current favorites include Julie Anne Long, Erin McCarthy, and Shannon McKenna.

  1. Congrats~I love books about baseball and I love that it’s set in a small town. I have written some short stories under my pseudonym, Vi LaNance, (one is out now, one comes out 9/16) about the fictitious Cincinnati Red Wolves. One is about the new manager and the other is about a player who’s known for stealing bases and hearts, and the team mascot.

    I enjoyed High Heat. I was lucky enough to read an ARC. In the book his name is Tom Cord but in your September 3, 2014 above it shows his name is Tom Ford.

      Hi, Joanne. I’m glad you enjoyed it! You are very right about the hero’s name. He was originally Tom Ford, but my editor asked me to change it because there is a real-life fashion designer/director named Tom Ford. Guess I should update my website, huh? :O)


      • JoAnne says:

        Probably a good idea. Those are the kind of inconsistencies I’m always surprised get missed.
        My review should be posted on RomanceJunkies.com soon. I look forward to reading more of your books.
