This cowboy plays to win
Rockford James was raised as a tried and true cowboy in a town crazy about ice hockey. Rock is as hot on the ice as he is on a horse, and the NHL snapped him up. Now, injuries have temporarily benched him. Body and pride wounded, he returns to his hometown ranch to find that a lot has changed. The one thing that hasn't? His feelings for high school sweetheart and girl-next-door Quinn Rivers.
Quinn had no choice but to get over Rock after he left. Teenaged and heartbroken, she had a rebound one night stand that ended in single motherhood. Now that Rock's back—and clamoring for a second chance—Quinn will do anything to avoid getting caught up in this oh-so-tempting cowboy…

What People Are Saying About Jennie Marts:
"An absolute delight."—Harlequin Junkies TOP PICK for Romancing the Ranger, 5 Stars
Marts (Catching the Cowgirl) spins an appealing story of love rediscovered in her newest Western-themed contemporary. When Rockford "Rock" James left the small ranching town of Creedence, Colo., to follow his dream of being a professional hockey player, he broke the heart of his high school sweetheart, feisty Quinn Rivers. Nine years later, after suffering a severe concussion on the ice, Rock returns home to recuperate and falls back in love with Quinn, who's ably navigating single motherhood. He also gets along well with her brainy, charming eight-year-old son, Max, the result of a rebound one-night stand shortly after their breakup. Both Rock and Quinn are starting to let their guards down and dream of a future when Max's thoroughly unlikable deadbeat dad, Monty, returns to town. Quinn's justifiably suspicious about his motives, but Rock wonders whether he's impeding the reunion of a family. Marts throws in a few twists along the way, some more believable than others but none too distracting. The ending is no less satisfying for being thoroughly predictable. Marts's fans will enjoy this tender tale.
