Told from dual third person perspectives (Casey and Erik) REBEL YULE is a second chance romance between PA to the Chicago Rebel owner Casey Higgins, and goaltender Erik Jorgenson.

With an invitation from Erik, Casey will discover that Erik has a secret, a secret that kept him from recognizing our story line heroine. What ensues is the rebuilding romance and relationship between Casey and Erik, and the potential fall-out as Casey struggles to move on from the past, and a previous relationship that has affected all of her relationships going forward.

The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including most of the previous story line couples. We are reintroduced to the team owner Harper Chase and her husband Remy DuPre, as well as the introduction of Erik’s extended family in Sweden, and Casey’s ex boyfriend Andrew.
