Los Angeles, 1954 ... Gangsters, crime, boxing – and young
Jimmy Doherty, a hard-luck
orphan from the south side of Chicago,
was mentored in the sweet science of boxing by Father Tim Brophy, the Battling
Priest of St. Vincent's Asylum for Boys. Jimmy’s fists were good enough to take
him to LA where he has begun his rise up the local fight-cards. He has big
plans to be a contender and even bigger plans for Lindy – his trainer’s only
daughter, who's sweeter than apple pie and harder to resist.
But when Lindy is arrested for
killing a boxer with ties to gangster Mickey Cohen, Jimmy is forced to join
forces with the arresting detective – who would like to do much more with Lindy
than put her in handcuffs – in a desperate search for the real killer.
Carol Malone successfully
combines her three passions – writing, sports, and romance to become the very
first woman to climb into the boxing ring of a male-dominated series called
Fight Card. Think Rocky meets The Untouchables, Carol’s written a mash-up of
happily ever after with kick-in-the-pants, fist-pounding action.
If not hammering out new tales to
entice her readers to scramble into a front row seat for thrilling tales of
physical endurance and tender passion, Carol’s reading, watching sports on TV,
or hanging with her end-of-the-world author husband on the cool coast of California. To talk
sports and amour, and learn about Carol's latest book releases, visit Carol on
