Keeping secrets can shatter hearts…

Against her better judgement, Carrie Rodgers pretends she’s her twin sister while being escorted to a children’s hospital gala by Rick Marshall, an up and coming real estate developer in Atlanta. What she didn’t count as her sister’s substitute is a night of passion.

Rick doesn’t tolerate liars but he’s willing to imply his and Carrie’s relationship is more than it is to close a career defining deal. Having the right woman on his arm could tip the scales in his favor, but he’s not prepared for his heart getting caught in the balance as well.

A great sexy and sweet novella from the Magnolias and Moonshine series! It’s fast paced, easy to follow and enjoy … the characters are down to earth and easy to like. Really enjoyed Rick and Carrie’s story!

Teacher Carrie Rodgers begrudgingly agrees to secretly switch places with her twin sister Cathie to go out on a date with real estate developer Rick Marshall. There is absolutely no malice intended, she just finds it impossible to say no to her sister when she selfishly wants to do her own thing instead of keeping a commitment she made to accompany Rick to a charity event.

Rick didn’t think he was going to enjoy his date with Cathie all that much, but the woman he picks up seems different. More genuine, fresh and subtle. The date turns into an exciting time, ending up in what is just supposed to be one night together, but turns into a weekend of fun. When the truth comes to light, will Rick be able to forgive the deceit that he abhors so much in order to be with the woman who has taken his breath away?

He's used to winning, but now he's playing with his heart.

Jude Braddock. Hockey god. That's how everyone sees him now. But when they were teenagers, Zoey knew him as the kid who didn't have enough nerve to make a move on their one and only disastrous date. Seems he doesn't have that problem anymore, though. According to the rumors, he's with a different woman every night. After a rough divorce, the last thing Zoey needs is more heartbreak. But Jude's cocky, playful attitude is mighty hard to resist.

Jude knows he isn't built for long-term relationships. But he's getting sick of women pounding on his door in the middle of the night looking for a rematch. When Zoey comes back into his life, it's like fate has given him a second chance. He'll do anything to make her happy again. Is this what love looks like? He has no idea. All he knows for sure is that this time, he's playing for keeps.

A great kick-off to a new hockey series by Victoria Denault! I enjoyed the characters and the plot a lot … there was a slight disconnect occasionally, but overall a solid book . I look forward to more in the series!

Jude Braddock is one of the “it” guys in hockey right now. They’re coming off a Stanley Cup win and he should be flying high, but he’s just not feeling it. Life is getting old. He’s getting a little worn down on life in the fast lane with a different chick every night and living up to his player reputation. He knows he’s not cut out for a relationship, but as crazy as it sounds, it’s lonely out there!

Real estate agent Zoey Quinlin is coming out of an unexpected and discouraging divorce when Jude steps back into her life again. She can’t believe the childhood summer fling that she has never forgotten about is here in front of her .. sexy as all get out! She knows she shouldn’t, but she has never been able to resist the pull that Jude seems to have on her. He’s a great guy, even if he has the love ’em and leave ’em reputation these days … and she finds herself unable to walk away.

Is another heartache in her future, or will she be just what Jude needs to make him see that there’s love out there for him … love that is worth all of his devotion … love that will last … love that will set him free.
