He's a Special Forces veteran making his pro hockey debut. She's a dogged sports reporter determined to get a scoop. She's also his best friend's widow . . .

Fans can't get enough of Levi Hunt, the military veteran who put his NHL career on hold to serve his country and fight the bad guys. So when his new Chicago Rebels bosses tell him to cooperate with the press on a profile, he's ready to do his duty. Until he finds out who he has to work with: flame-haired, freckle-splashed, impossibly perky Jordan Cooke.

The woman he should not have kissed the night she buried her husband, Levi's best friend in the service.

Hockey-stick-up-his-butt-serious Levi Hunt might despise Jordan for reasons she can't fathom--okay, it's to do with kissing--but her future in the cutthroat world of sports reporting hangs on delivering the goods on the league's hottest, grumpiest rookie. So what if he's not interested in having his life plated up for public consumption. Too bad. Jordan will have to play dirty to get her scoop and even dirtier to get her man. Only in winning the story, she might just lose her heart ...

In this standalone romance, first in the Rookie Rebels series, a new generation of players take to the ice and learn that all's fair in love and hockey.


Kate Meader has a wicked way of wrapping every man she creates around a reader’s heart … and I absolutely love it! With the first look at her new hockey spin-off series Rookie Rebels, she brings us the story of a decorated war hero who sacrificed a lot in his service to our country, but just sees himself as an average Joe as he starts his NHL career. His world is about to go up in flames when he reconnects with the widow of his best friend who he’s had a thing for since the day he met her. The story line is fresh and fun, the characters took a little longer to connect for me, but once they did it was magical. Really enjoyed the first duo of the series … so looking forward to more!

Former Green Beret Levi Hunt wishes the media attention surrounding him would die down. He thinks of himself as the furthest thing from a hero, but everyone seems to be latching on and wanting a piece of him. He wants to settle into his new career as a hockey player … and just live for awhile. He isn’t happy when his new bosses decide he needs to cooperate with a media expose … but he especially isn’t happy when he sees who is doing it!

Sports reporter Jordan Cooke isn’t really into using the “who I know” card to get a leg up in her career, but she knows it might be her only chance, so she let’s it be known that she knows the man that everyone wants a scoop on. Her husband was best friends with him. He might have never liked her, but she knows she can get him to talk … if they can get past the kiss they shared the last time they saw each other … the day they buried her husband.
