They can resist their attraction…until their hearts rocket them across the blue line.
Timing. Hockey careers are made or broken on it, and mine has taken exceptionally broken road. I’m not a star. I’m a grinder, I work hard, and I’m finally at the point I can put the past behind me and get the fat, long-term contract I deserve.
But my agent–the man who stuck by me through every crash and burn–has had a heart attack. I need another agent now, or my one chance for the good money will slip through my fingers. Kate’s a rookie, but she loves the game like I do, so I pick up the phone. And I wonder if she remembers that one night in Cancun as vividly as I do.
Hockey. All my life I’ve lived it, breathed it, played it. Now it’s my business. As an agent, I’m tied to my phone at all hours, but nothing prepared me to hear Hunter’s voice. The last time I saw him–three years ago–there was a lot of bare skin and horny hormones involved.
I’ve handled it all in my short career–sexism, harassment, being broke, being laughed at. Resisting the attraction between us should be easy. Until it isn’t. And Hunter’s past shakes his confidence hard enough that he could make the worst decision at the worst possible time…
Take a peek inside a Blurb Wizard’s brain…if you dare! Thanks to Romancing the Blog for having me.
The ton views widowed baroness Lady Madeline Mulborne as a renowned hostess of society parties. In reality, her flighty manner disguises an encyclopedic knowledge of art, a bone-deep distrust of men, and a dangerous secret.
Lord Arthur Carmichael, Marquess of Brighton, is at a crossroads. His wild reputation was the perfect cover for the spy missions he undertook for the Crown. Now, that reputation could keep him from settling into a cabinet position—unless he takes a wife.
Before he can embark on the dreaded wedding quest, he must complete one last mission: catch a thief who’s stolen four of five priceless French jewels. If the last one disappears, the fragile peace between France and England could be damaged beyond repair.
Whom should he encounter on the French Riviera but Lady Mulborne, who never forgave him for vanishing during their long-ago courtship. Arthur suspects her nimble fingers are adept at more than just fluttering a fan, because he knows of one item she’s already stolen: his heart.
Warning: Contains a mysterious baroness with a secret identity, a marquess who’ll bite the matrimonial bullet to get what he wants, and a marriage that’s anything but convenient.
