All wrapped up . . .
One more game. That's all that stands between NHL star Asher Westmore and a major career milestone. But then his brother bashes him against the hockey boards, sidelining him for months. Over Christmas holidays, no less. If staying off the ice doesn't drive him crazy, staying with his family will. The only bright spot amidst the mistletoe and twinkle lights: His best friend, Emma, is a physical therapist. And working out with her improves his body and his spirit.
One last time. Emma Callaway was in trouble the minute she and Asher added benefits to their friendship. How is she supposed to resist a funny, caring guy who makes her toes curl? Her heart was safe while he lived in a different state. Now that he's back home recuperating, though, it's only a matter of time before she blurts out her feelings. Emma's only hope is that with a little holiday magic, she'll get the best Christmas gift of all.
"With the perfect blend of hockey, heart, and heat, Maybe This Time is a winner!" -- USA Today bestselling author Debbie Mason
In Snow's latest Colorado Ice novel (after Maybe This Summer), a professional hockey player must come to terms with what is most important in life. Asher Westmore is nearing a career goal of playing 1,000 games, if only he can skate through the pain of a debilitating knee injury. When he visits home in Glenwood Falls, Colo., he enjoys celebrating Christmas with family and friends and reuniting with his best friend and lover, physical therapist Emma Callaway. Then his knee injury sidelines him and he turns to Emma for help, and Asher is forced to ask whether hockey matters more than pursuing romance with her. The attraction between Asher and Emma is always sensuous and intense, but Emma realizes that she wants romance as well as sex and also contemplates starting a graduate-level PT program in Florida. The romance of the Christmas holiday season is enhanced by the backdrop of small-town Colorado. The sweet, touching emotions will resonate with readers.
