Can this fake marriage survive real life?

It was now or never for hockey star Donovan Legori. He’d been keeping his head down and his skates on the ice since his painful divorce. Getting traded was the only thing that mattered. Tired of playing back-up— he was ready for a team that would make him a starting goalie. What he wasn’t ready for was falling for his teammate’s spunky sister.

Fiery redhead Tara Laassonen needed a fresh start and a one-way ticket out of Finland. Moving to be near her professional hockey player brother in Anchorage seemed like the perfect escape, especially when his tall, dark and handsome teammate made her forget all about her disastrous break up back home.

Just as things were heating up, Tara found both her heart and her visa on thin ice. And Donovan discovered that a marriage of convenience was anything but easy, especially when forced to choose: Hockey or Tara.


A marriage of convenience turns all too real in the latest in Kat Mizera’s Alaska Blizzard hockey series! In TENDING TARA we get to enjoy a connection between Miikka’s sister Tara and his teammate Donovan and it’s a lot of fun. The storyline is complex with baggage coming at them from all directions, but the relationship between them is super sweet and steamy as all get out. I enjoyed them!

Tara is a bit of a wild card. She’s independent and self-sufficient but she’s quick to decide a man is her answer to all of her problems. I didn’t agree with all of her philosophies, but overall I enjoyed her.

Donovan was a sweetheart. He was hurt in the past and wasn’t too sure about giving his heart away again, but he was all in on helping Tara out when she needed a quick husband.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close knit hockey team who are their own little family as each one finds their happily ever after.
