Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He's had one failed marriage and doesn't have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can't comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn't listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi's house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt's forgiveness?

 

Opposites attract … and steam up the house!! It’s always a pleasure to start a new Seattle Sockeyes book, but this one was even a little more sweet than usual. It has the forbidden aspect of having him fall for a bad girl type instead of the straight-laced wholesome woman his head wants hime to like, it has adorable kiddos that simply make the story and it has a wounded soul that got the short end of the stick from the people who should have protected her most … and all of those aspects rolled into one make for a great story!! It’s intriguing, it’s sweet, it’s super sexy and overall it’s really heartwarming. A little light on the hockey side of things, but overall a really great read!

When star defenseman Matt LaRue finds himself in desperate need of temporary help looking after his kids, he turns to his former nanny for suggestions. He’s not thrilled with her suggestion … her best friend, wild child Vi! He has nothing against her personally, but she’s most definitely not the type of person he wants around his impressionable boys … purple haired, pierced, tattooed … but what’s a guy to do when he has no other options??

Violet Strider can’t explain why she finds extremely irritating Matt LaRue attractive, he’s a jerk in the highest form who is always looking down his nose at her with a sneer on his face … but man does he tickle her fancy! Close quarters lead them to come to a temporary arrangement … hot sex, nothing more! When their steamy trysts lead to them feeling more than either of them ever expected, it makes for a dangerous situation when hearts become involved just as Vi’s secrets could tear Matt’s world apart.

It’s the season for giving…and starting over?

She and Chris need to find their way to a meeting of minds and hearts to make this truly a season for second chances…

Fisherman Chris Allen never quite got over Marissa walking out on him, and seeing her again brings it all back. A decade has passed since they went their separate ways, but it feels like just yesterday that she was his. Will their past take them for a ride down memory lane or will it all just fester up and make them realize why they couldn’t make it work in the first place?

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

 

Sizzling chemistry, hot sex and deep emotional connections! With book three in the Forbidden Desires series, we get Cooper’s story. We met him and already adored him from the first book or two in the series, and now we go along for the ride as he comes back home to pick up the pieces of his life. He never expects to meet a woman who takes his breath away, but watching it all go down is pretty magical!

Cooper Kinglsey left Boston heartbroken 6 months ago to sow some oats and party some things off his mind, but now he’s back and ready to start adjusting to real life again. One look at his new assistant has his jaw dropping and his pulse racing, so he won’t be bored while at the office that’s for sure!

Corinne O’Neil isn’t so sure about working for the sexy man that propositions her straight off the bat, but she needs the job and benefits so what’s a girl to do! With a haunting past and a boat load of hangups clinging to her, she sets out to live a little and not miss the opportunities standing right in front of her!

Three estranged sisters struggle to sustain their late father’s failing hockey franchise in Kate Meader’s sizzling Chicago Rebels series. In this second entry, middle sister Isobel is at a crossroads in her personal and professional lives. But both are about to get a significant boost with the addition of a domineering Russian powerhouse to the Rebels....

Isobel Chase knows hockey. She played NCAA, won Olympic silver, and made it thirty-seven minutes into the new National Women’s Hockey League before an injury sidelined her dreams. Those who can’t, coach, and a position as a skating consultant to her late father’s hockey franchise, the Chicago Rebels, seems like a perfect fit. Until she’s assigned her first job: the man who skated into her heart as a teen and relieved her of her pesky virginity. These days, left-winger Vadim Petrov is known as the Czar of Pleasure, a magnet for puck bunnies and the tabloids alike. But back then... let’s just say his inability to sink the puck left Isobel frustratingly scoreless.

Vadim has a first name that means “ruler,” and it doesn’t stop at his birth certificate. He dominates on the ice, the practice rink, and in the backseat of a limo. But a knee injury has produced a bad year, and bad years in the NHL don’t go unrewarded. His penance? To be traded to a troubled team where his personal coach is Isobel Chase, the woman who drove him wild years ago when they were hormonal teens. But apparently the feeling was not entirely mutual.

That Vadim might have failed to give Isobel the pleasure that was her right is intolerable, and he plans to make it up to her—one bone-melting orgasm at a time. After all, no player can perfect his game without a helluva lot of practice...

 

A powerful hockey team in the making! With the 2nd book in her Chicago Rebels hockey series, Kate Meader continues to bring us the story of three estranged sisters who have come together to take over the hockey team their father owned after his death. Each sister had her own issues to deal with regarding their father, and watching the fireworks surround them as they feel their way through being a family and trying to keep a sinking team afloat makes for a desirable read. Throw in a few sexy hockey studs and it’s even better! The brotherhood that is starting to build between this team is fun to watch and the chemistry off the ice is becoming explosive! Looking forward to more!

Isobel Chase had her small taste of hockey glory before it all came falling down around her in a career ending injury. Left to pick up the pieces of a life she had devoted to one thing and one thing only, she has her heart set on coaching the team she’s part owner of. While she waits to earn her dues, she finds herself being tasked with the job of working one on one with their latest acquisition … who just so happens to be her old teenage beau who tried to rock her world, but unknowingly failed!

Vadim Petrov is less than thrilled to find out that he’s going to be working with the woman who tied him up in knots all those years ago and then hung him out to dry. He just wants to recover from this knee injury that has had him sidelined and get on with playing the game, but when the word on the street is that he failed to please a woman, he will not stand for that! Bella might as well get it through her head right now … he wants a do-over!

“This little job is the difference between you playing and not. Dancing with the Stars, Vaddy baby. It’s where all the washed-up pros end up.”

Annoyed at his reaction to her, he skated away, throwing out over his shoulder, “I will be playing, Isobel. You will have no say in that. I spoke with Moretti—it is clear why you have this job.”

Her brow crimped. Naturally, it was adorable. “Please. Enlighten me.”

“He is new and no doubt under pressure to bow to the owners. You can write your own ticket.”

“If that’s the case, I’d just appoint myself as head coach and be done with it.”

“You are also conscious of what the fans and media think, so you are starting small. Really, you could have called or texted, Isobel. Buying my contract seems like a lot of work to bring me back into your world.”

“You weren’t my first choice. But luckily your poor play this season meant Quebec was happy to offload you.”

He ignored the brief stab. The last six months had been difficult. Isobel understood this, yet they could not resist these little cuts.

“I think you wanted to be closer to me. Just like before, right, Bella?”

A blush crept up her cheeks on hearing his endearment for her.

He would test her. Make her angry and emotional. Make her cry. Because angry, emotional criers were not the stuff of coaches. If she was serious about a career in the NHL, she would hear worse.

She would get him game fit. He would get her battle ready.

He continued to needle. “Yes, I think that must be it. It seems that the female owners of the Rebels would like to abuse their position and use the players for their personal pleasure. Your sister and Remy DuPre—that is interesting.”

“Is it?”

“Harper may have duped a Rebel player into her bed, but please don’t imagine you and I will be renewing our acquaintance in a similar manner.”

That got her attention, at last. Her creamy skin blazed, her crimson mouth twitched, and even from a distance he could see those melted-shamrock eyes darken. She looked like she wanted scream at him. Burst into tears. Slap his face.

Yes, Bella. Let us see if you can handle the barbs of every player, coach, and fan who will dismiss you. Let us see if you can handle me.

Fury powering her stride, she skated over, skidding to a halt mere inches from his face. As before, she was magnificent.

“You’ve found me out, Petrov.”

“I have?”

“It’s all an elaborate ruse. We bought your contract even though you really haven’t been performing well this season. Let’s face it, you’ve sucked donkey balls, Vadikins. But I convinced my sisters that I alone could bring you back to top condition. Make you a valuable asset to the team. I also made sure I’d be the only one working with you . . .” She leaned up on the tips of her blades, a balancing act that required great skill and remarkable ankle strength. Close enough that he could have slipped his tongue between his lips and tasted hers.

Her breath was a hot puff of temptation. “So we would have all this alone time.”

With that fiery gaze, she held his own.

Unerring.

Unflinching.

Until her mouth creased, and she broke into a laugh. He remembered that laugh. Just as before, it hit him right in the balls.

She used the edge of the iPad to poke him in the chest. “You thought I’d go to all this trouble to try to get into your hockey shorts, Petrov? I’m a team owner—I can have any of these Rebel boys with the click of my fingers!” She chuckled, clearly enjoying herself. “Despite what that supersized ego of yours thinks, the only performance I want from you is on the ice. Maybe if you spent less time carousing—”

“Carousing?”

“Yes, it’s nicer than calling you a club-hopping, vodka-sodden manwhore. Less of that and more effort on your day job, please. And don’t worry yourself that I’m interested in ‘renewing our acquaintance.’ I’ve had better lays with the Ukrainian delegation at the last Games.”

He had to say he enjoyed this sharp-tongued, quick-witted version of Isobel. But not enough to admit it to her.

“There is nothing you can teach me.”

“So sure, Russian.”

“I am positive.”

“We’ll see.” She skated back to the edge of the rink. “Again.”

Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

 

A cold-as-ice hockey god meets his match! This story is a bit unorthodox in that a good portion of the beginning of the book is already familiar if you read the previous book in the series LUCAS. It shows some common scenes only from a different perspective and with added happenings. It wasn’t my favorite way of going about it, but it worked and built on the information we already had gotten in the last book. I love the characters in this series and they are always good for a fun read with lots of angst and a ton of sexy tension!

Carolina Cold Fury enforcer Van Turner isn’t a warm and fuzzy kind of guy. He’s hard and cold and doesn’t have time for anybody’s nonsense. Give him a puck and some ice and he’s as happy as he’s going to get. A brutal past that no one knows about has held him back from putting down too many roots or getting close to his teammates, but when a pesky brat of a woman sets her sights on him, he’s going to rue the day he ever met her!

Simone Fournier is used to being around hulking hockey studs. Two of her big brothers are Van’s teammates and put her in close contact a little too much for his comfort. She set her sights on him the night they met, and if she wants him, she’s going to have him!

Conflicted in the depth of her feelings for bad boy Gavin Kingsley, lonely librarian Emma Bell knows he’s all wrong for her—yet the heart wants what it wants.

But if she gives into his dark, erotic desires will she lose herself completely?

Passion, drama and suspense combine in the highly-anticipated conclusion to Emma Bell’s love affair with the alpha and enigmatic Kingsley brothers. Secrets will be exposed, sides will be chosen, and nothing will ever be the same.

This is book two in the series, following Dirty Little Secret.

 

Angst filled drama with a boat load of steaminess! When we left off from the first book in the Forbidden Desires series, we were left with a shocking cliffhanger. This book picks up shortly after and deals with the aftermath. I wanted a little more from the book personally and felt like it was a bit of a let down after the first. I still enjoy the characters … but the plot could have been spiced up a bit to match the first book. Still an enjoyable group of people though, and I’m looking forwarding to what the future holds! I recommend reading this series in order or you will miss some key points along the way.

Conflicted librarian Emma Bell can’t decide what to do. Does she say the secrets she’s discovered about Gavin Kingsley don’t matter to her, or does she turn her back on his bad boy hotness and say that nice guy Cooper is more her style? Gavin pushes her hot buttons like no other, but will giving in to her carnal desires only lead to heartache in the end?

From partners to parents!

Dr. Gabriel Jackson and paramedic Penny Davenport make a great team—despite driving each other crazy! She's Manhattan Mercy's daredevil helicopter pilot, who thrives on adventure after a childhood spent wrapped in cotton wool, while he's the cautious flight doctor who, after a disastrous marriage, will never take risks again.

But after the elation of surviving a storm explodes into passion, Penny discovers she's pregnant! This could be an unforgettable Christmas—if they listen to their hearts and take the greatest risk of all!

 

Sexy, sweet and tension filled! If you’ve been reading along with the Christmas in Manhattan series at all, you will recognize the Davenport family. It’s been a great series, and Penny might just turn out to be my favorite one yet! She’s sassy and doesn’t act like she comes from the glamour and prestige that we know she does. She’s definitely one of those characters that is a breath of fresh air where what you see is what you get. I really enjoyed going on this journey with her and her sexy doc!

Paramedic/rescue pilot Penny Davenport leads a daring and fun-filled life, but for her partner in the air Dr. Gabriel Jackson, she’s a whirlwind that is hard to keep grounded! When a risky turn of events lead them stranded for the night, they have a slip up in the resistance they had built around their attraction for each other and spend a passion filled night together. No harm no foul, they decide to forget it ever happened … until she finds out their romp has left them with a baby on the way!

Gabriel guards himself with a wall around his emotions after a disastrous marriage in his past, so he has to work really hard to let himself get closer to Penny … and the fact that she’s a daredevil who doesn’t want to be reigned in doesn’t make for an easy-going transition into parents-to-be. Will they find that the baby isn’t the only thing drawing them towards each other in the end?
