Review

Winner - 2016 Golden Flogger Award for Best BDSM (light) Romance
Winner - 2016 Passionate Plume Award for Best Historical Erotic Romance 
Finalist - 2016 HOLT Medallion Award
5 Stars - A Purest Delight - Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews - "Suspended Game features everything I look for in a romance; an intricate plot, characters I want to know and care about, interesting dialog, just enough drama to make it interesting without bogging down the story, steamy intimate scenes and a relationship that develops out of respect, communication and deep feelings. Author Roz Lee offered all that in this book making it one hell of a story."
5 Stars - Manic Readers - "...the way that Lee presents Evelyn's heroine's journey from prudish preacher's daughter to wanton sex addict, is certainly well done. Tutored by disgraced professional ball player Jimmy Doyle, as he seduces her mind & body with gifts & letters, Evelyn finds that sex between two lovers is not the sin that her father had drummed into her head.

From the Author

I hope fans of the Mustangs Baseball series will enjoy this step back in time to 1936 when baseball truly was America's pastime. America was still reeling from the great stock market crash and dealing with a heat wave that destroyed lives and livelihoods (the dust bowl). Amid the turmoil and heartache, baseball provided a much-needed distraction.

Ballparks didn't have lights, so all games were played during the day so attending a game was a special treat. Most listened to the play-by-play via radio (no television yet!), read about their favorite team in the newspaper or stood on the sidewalk where innovative news outlets posted play-by-play information as it came through via telegraph from the ballparks.
The hero of Suspended Game, Jimmy Doyle Walker, is the grandfather of Doyle Walker, the manager of the Mustangs in my present-day series. Readers might recall (Strike Out, Mustangs Baseball #6) that Doyle has a bat in his office that his grandfather used during the 1936 season. Jimmy Doyle walks a fine moral line. An upstanding guy, he's struggling to revive his career after being falsely accused in a gambling scandal while protecting his personal life from those who would condemn him. The BDSM lifestyle is not a 21st century  invention. People have been practicing kink since the beginning of time, albeit, behind closed doors. In 1936, small, secret communities of like-minded people existed all across the country. The group of which Jimmy Doyle is a member is a figment of my imagination, but is nonetheless accurate in its depiction of the secretive nature of the members.
The heroine of the story, Evelyn Gardner, reflects the reality of women during that time. The roaring twenties brought a degree of liberation for women, but for the most part, they were subject to the whims of the men in their life and societies moral strictures. A woman's value remained tied to her virtue, and that was subject to her marital status. Divorce wasn't unheard of, but it was a stain on a woman's character, as was any expression of sexual desire. Women had earned the right to vote, but sexual fulfillment was still a man's right.
Finding the romance of this era was a challenge, but one I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope you do too.
Roz
