Synopsis (Goodreads):
A Black Hills Wolves Matchmaker Story...

Riley Morgan, the all-star ace pitcher of the world champion New York Kings, has long hid his secret from his adoring fans and the clamoring metropolitan press. But when Riley is distracted on the mound by a long-distance mate call and the sweet voice from home he couldn't possibly have heard, he suffers a freak, career-ending injury that sends him back to his South Dakota wolf pack to heal.

Stolen from her family along with her twin sister years earlier, Amber Northridge was held prisoner and abused by the crazed former alpha and his henchmen since she was a teen, managing to survive through resourcefulness and wits. Now, at long last the pack has located them and set them free.

Returned home to Los Lobos, Amber recognizes the hunky baseball player she's seen on TV as her mate, but she doubts she can be with any man after all she has suffered.

Can the romantic machinations of Los Lobos' four renowned matchmakers unite the damaged pair?
Thoughts on Amber's Ace: A damaged pitcher and a broken woman. In other words, Riley and Amber have a few hurdles to get around before they can reach a point where they're both all-in on that mating thing. In my opinion, Amber's issues are the weightier of the two. Which isn't to say Riley has an easy time coming to terms with losing his career, but Amber was held a literal captive for a large portion of her life and she has some WALLS to break down when it comes to her mindset about men.

(As tough as Amber has it, I think her sister is even worse off. Poor lady.)

The Northridge family has had more than their fare share of hard knocks in life, but the siblings are slowly coming into their own. Amber and Riley are well suited once she learns to trust him and he trusts her with the secret he's been carrying around. Only Garnet is left to find someone to support her when things get tough.
