Can you read just one? Sixteen holiday-themed, bite-sized romances featuring the New Jersey Ice Cats players!
A PERFECT SELECTION 1:
A Perfect Party
Just good friends? Ice Cats defenseman, Taylor ‘Mad Dog’ Madden wants more than friendship from Lizzie Martin. Much more. So when a Christmas party provides the chance to kick their relationship up a gear, should he take it or will he lose her completely?
A Perfect Lucky Charm
There’s no such thing as luck! Despite his name, Ice Cats’ forward, Patrick ‘Paddy’ Mullroney, isn’t Irish and doesn’t believe in lucky charms. For sure, they won’t help him get out of his scoring slump. But when a shamrock from the ear-ring of a green-eyed beauty drops at his feet, he wonders if St. Patrick’s Day might be lucky for him after all.
A Perfect Disguise
Who’s the lady behind the mask? Ice Cats’ forward, Jamie ‘Blade’ Wilkinson thinks his neighbour, pretty schoolteacher, Daisy Carturo, is too good for him. She deserves better than a man with his dark past. When he meets sexy Catwoman at a team charity event, he thinks he’s found a more suitable woman to date. So why does she make him think about Daisy? If only he could have the best of both worlds.
A Perfect Reunion
A day of thanksgiving? When Ice Cats’ defenseman, Troy Davidson, sees his ex-fiancé at his parents’ Thanksgiving party, he’s determined to make things right. He screwed up five years ago, when he ditched their engagement party to elope with a movie star. Now divorced, he realises he’s only ever loved one woman. Charlotte Daniels claims she’s forgiven Troy. But can she trust him enough to take another chance on him and love?
A Perfect Storm
Snowbound! When Ice Cats’ forward, Vladimir ‘Vlad’ Ralinkov, gets caught in a snowstorm, on his way back from a game, he seeks refuge in his favourite diner. Could this be the opportunity he’s been waiting for to heat things up with lovely diner owner, Poppy Lambert, or will she leave him out in the cold?
A Perfect Bouquet
Anything, but red roses! Ice Cats’ back-up goaltender, Chaz ‘Monty’ Montgomery, fell in love with florist Kayla DeMarco the first time he met her. Unfortunately, then she was married to one of his former team-mates. Since Kayla’s divorce, Monty has waited patiently, hoping that one day she’ll notice that he’s more than just a great customer. Can he convince her with a special bouquet that Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to take a chance on a different hockey player?
A PERFECT SELECTION 2:
A Perfect Contest
Secret crushes … unfinished business! The last thing Ally Finnon wants is to strut her stuff in a swimsuit and patriotic head-dress for the annual Miss Firecracker contest. But she’ll lose her job if she doesn’t. The last thing recently divorced, Ice Cats’ forward, Jordan ‘Match’ Matcheson, wants is to interrupt his summer break and judge a beauty contest. But he drew the short straw, literally. Could this finally be the chance for the former high school friends to get together and make sparks fly?
A Perfect Plan
Who says zombies aren’t romantic? Ice Cats’ forward, Drake Spencer, hopes his plan to take his nephew trick-or-treating will finally break the ice with his lovely neighbour. Unfortunately, Gertie Noakes is having a bad Halloween; she burned the cookies she promised to bake for her daughter’s class. The last person she needs to find on her doorstep is the sexy, hockey player she’s been trying to steer clear of. Can a quick change of plan help Drake win Gertie over?
A Perfect Picnic
No turkey, no pies and no power! When a Thanksgiving snow storm knocks out the electricity, Ice Cats’ forward, Will Hardacre, and his sexy, but workaholic neighbour, Amelia Norris, are stranded on the 45th floor of their apartment building. A traditional festive feast is out; the best they can do is pool the sparse contents of their kitchen cupboards. Could a candlelit picnic help them discover that they have more in common than their address?
A Perfect Date
Can the wrong guy make things right? Zoe Coombs’ perfect Valentine’s date has turned into a disaster. Stood up at the best restaurant in town, with her ex-fiancé and his latest fling two tables over. Perhaps she should have accepted Ethan Blackmore’s invitation instead, even if she won’t chance her heart on another hockey player. But when the sexy, Ice Cats’ defenseman comes to her rescue, she wonders if he’s worth the risk, after all.
A Perfect Chance
Making an Egg-stra Effort! Ice Cats’ defenceman, Hank ‘Vexer’ Delecchio, knows he needs a game-changer to get lovely nurse, Elise Arnett, to look past her dislike of professional athletes and take a chance on him. Will dressing up as the Easter Bunny, to entertain the kids on the children’s ward, be the play that finally helps him score?
A PERFECT SELECTION 3:
A Perfect Tribute
Never forget. For wounded military veteran, Naomi Como, Memorial Day is about more than barbecues and beer. She’s all for celebrating life and freedom, but she wants to mourn her fallen friends her own way. Can a hot hockey player convince her that living her life to the full is the perfect tribute to those she’s lost?
A Perfect Pumpkin
No tricks—just a treat! When sports’ journalist, Frankie Ellerton, agrees to help her sister at the pumpkin festival, the last person she expects to see is the sexy hockey player with whom she had a one-night-stand. Ice Cats’ forward, Logan Halliday, knows the Stanley Cup celebration he shared with Frankie was special, but she insists their relationship must now be strictly business. With his niece as chaperone, maybe he can carve more than the perfect jack o’lantern—a fresh start with Frankie.
A Perfect Favor
Lights, Camera . . . Turkey! Cooper ‘Coop’ Johansen doesn’t expect his fresh start with his new team to entail being Mr. November for the Ice Cats’ charity calendar. Food photographer Becca Emory’s Thanksgiving shoot could win her a contract that will stabilize her business. But her best friend’s in a jam and needs her to produce a calendar page for the Ice Cats asap. Combining the jobs should be a piece of cake. After all, how much trouble can a shirtless hockey player and three kittens be?
A Perfect Gift
Found: A heart in need of love. When Ice Cats’ forward, Tom Adamson, finds a forlorn, vintage sweetheart pin cushion at a Manhattan flea market, he doesn't expect to have to battle lovely antiques’ collector, Karly Jacobs, for it. The decorated sawdust heart will make the perfect present for his grandmother. But could a change of plan make it a perfect Valentine’s gift instead?
A Perfect Rescue
Be careful what you wish for... New Year's Eve hasn't been kind to Ice Cats' forward, Nate Gallison. This year, he's responsible for the team's loss. All he wants is a quiet night. But when a sexy brunette in a red dress needs help escaping from the date from hell, he wonders if a little festive hide-and-seek can lead to a magical midnight for them both?
