Georgeanne Howard leaves her fiancé at the altar when she realizes she can't marry a man old enough to be her grandfather, no matter how rich he is. Hockey superstar John Kowalsky unknowingly helps her escape, and only when it's too late does he realize that he's absconded with his boss's bride. This bad boy isn't looking to be anybody's savior but his own. Still, a long night stretches ahead of them—a night too sultry to resist temptation.

Seven years later, Georgeanne and John meet again. She is on her way to becoming Seattle's domestic darling and he is past his hellraising days. Shocked to learn that he has a daughter, John's determined to be part of her life. Georgeanne has loved John since the moment she jumped into his car, but will he risk the wrath of his boss, and one final chance at glory, to prove that this time his love will be everlasting?

 

A quirky story of life, lust and eventually a happily ever after! The main characters are fairly well developed, but there was a side plot of Mae/Ray that I found to be a bit distracting. For a hockey romance, there wasn’t really much of a hockey context involved, but it was an entertaining read.

The moment Georgeanne Howard decided to run out on her wedding, her life was changed forever! Her unknowing hero whisks her away into a night of temptation too steamy to be denied.

When hockey player John Kowalsky realizes that the woman he helped into his car is none other than the soon-to-be bride of his boss, he’s fit to be tied! Heads are going to roll if this ever gets out … namely his!

Seven years later, their lives are in totally different places when they meet by happenstance again. John has settled down from his wild ways that somewhat stemmed from a past that she knew nothing about back when they were first together … and Georgeanne has made something of herself in the culinary world. When John accidentally finds out about the daughter they share, Georgie is determined not to let the guy that hurt her do the same to her daughter. She doesn’t need his help and doesn’t appreciate him trying to insinuate himself into her happy life! John isn’t going to take no for an answer when it comes to a kid that is just as much his as hers … will the fireworks lead to a feud worthy of the tabloids, or will they figure out a way to work together towards a better future?
