First & Goal [Queen of the League #1] by Laura Chapman Published: September 9, 2015 Format: Kindle purchase Publisher: Marching Ink Rating: 5/5 Synopsis When Harper Duquaine’s no-nonsense approach to work unintentionally ruffles the wrong feathers at her new job, she joins her co-workers’ fantasy football league to prove she can hang with the guys.
