Author: Charlene Groome
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
The Warriors take to the ice again in Charlene Groome’s sensational series about hockey players and the women who love them. But the team’s new addition may have to work for a warm welcome…
Defenseman Devin Miller has bounced from team to team and city to city, but he’s finally ready to settle down—professionally and personally. The Warriors seems like the perfect fit. Now all he needs is the right woman to start a family with—and he’s willing to put in the practice to find her.
Sports anchor Carla Sinclair already doesn’t like Vancouver’s hot new acquisition. So when she’s persuaded to interview him, she’s not prepared for the chemistry between them. But though Devin seems eager to show Carla his moves—on and off the ice—he keeps his personal life off-limits. Frustrated by him in more ways than one, Carla decides to track down Devin’s secrets on her own—and soon must decide if their attraction is worth the hit to her fragile heart…
“What are you doing?” she asks.
“I was tempted and well, the moment felt right.” He pauses, staring into her eyes.
He takes two steps back. “I just thought…that you…that I…” He scratches the back of his neck and keeps his hand there while staring at the crushed gravel. “I don’t know what came over me.” His eyes find hers. There is a pull of desire in his look that captures her.
She doesn’t want him this way.
“Thank you for driving me here. I appreciate it,” she says, matter of fact.
“No problem.” He throws his hands in his pant pockets. “Glad I was there. You’re safe.”
“Yes. Thank you. Well, good night.” She opens her car door.
She pivots before sitting down in her seat.
“I didn’t mean to upset you.”
“I’m not upset.” She tightens her mouth. Why couldn’t he be a lousy kisser? It would make this easier.
“I wanted to see if there was something there.” His eyelids crease and he tilts his head slightly. “You’re not?”
“No…no…I…um…I’m not looking for a fling. I don’t do this. And I’m not what you’re looking for. Trust me.” She sits and starts up her car, watching Devin kick rocks as he makes his way to his vehicle.
She can’t fall for this guy. If only he knew she was looking for a guy wanting to commit and start a family together.
