The Las Vegas Sidewinders

Dominic (Book 1)


Sometimes age is just a number…

Dom Gianni takes a lot of punishment in the hockey rink and it's a welcome penance for the guilt he lives with. Getting traded to the new NHL expansion team in Las Vegas sounds like the next level of hell in his already crumbling life, but he doesn’t have a choice; this is his last shot. 

Molly McCarran is barely hanging on, certain her life will be cut short at the hand of her abusive husband. Death would be preferable to what she’s endured the last twenty years. So when she's rescued by a sexy hockey player, who's more than a decade younger, she's confused about her feelings and skeptical of his intentions. 

When Dom witnesses Molly getting beaten up by her husband, he’s ready to throw down his gloves and fight for her. If he can save her, maybe he can salvage himself too. But Molly isn’t about to trust another man—and Dom is already skating on thin ice with his NHL-mandated probation. If she can learn to trust him and hold on, they could find the peace they've been missing. If not, it might be the final buzzer for them both.

Cody's Christmas Surprise (Book 2)

The magic of Christmas is in the air and Cody Armstrong has a big surprise for his wife of seven years. Surrounded by their friends and family, he’s hoping this will be a Christmas Eve she’ll never forget.

Suzanne Armstrong finally understands that her sweet, handsome husband didn’t just marry her because she was pregnant. This is their first Christmas as a real couple and she has a special surprise for him too.

When an old acquaintance shows up on their doorstep with a surprise of her own, it could be the end of the happily ever after they’ve waited so long to find. Cody will have to prove that Suze is the only woman he’s ever loved and she’ll have to search her heart to decide whether she can put her faith in him. Facing their biggest obstacle yet, will they come out the other side or will the past shatter any chance for them to have a future? 

Drake (Book 3)

Looks can be deceiving... 

NHL defenseman Drake Riser is a tough guy on the ice. Out of the rink, he's more teddy bear than grizzly. But Drake secretly longs for someone to share his life with. Even after a failed marriage, he’d try again if the right woman came along. When she finally does, he's determined not to let anything stand in his way, even her. 

U.S. Marines Major Erin Gentry carriers the physical and emotional scars from war everywhere she goes. No amount of glitter can camouflage the ugly Erin feels inside. When she meets a hunky hockey star at a masquerade ball, she tries to convince herself that she’s too damaged to get involved, even though he makes her feel things she wishes she didn't. 

Drake thinks they’re perfect for each other, but Erin is stuck in the past, struggling to put her demons to rest—demons that are back and threatening to destroy her. Drake is ready to do anything to give them a shot at love, but Erin will have to learn letting someone help you fight your battles doesn't make you weak. Time is running out as they race the clock to win the game--and each other.
