He's an instigator on and off the ice...
Derek Flaherty can goad any opponent into throwing down his gloves with a few well-chosen words. Off the ice, he can talk a woman into dropping her inhibitions (and her panties) in seconds. His teammates love him...when they don't want to gag him. From the moment he sees Sophie, Derek discovers what it's like to be struck dumb. For two seconds. Then he does what he does best. He charms his way into her bed. But can he charm his way into her life?
Who's about to take a slapshot to the heart...
Sophie Tsoukalos is well acquainted with chaos. As a waitress in her parents' bar and favorite aunt of her four sisters' kids, she's used to dealing with drunks and toddlers. But she's never met a man like Derek. His panty-dropping smile entices her to let loose and invite him into her bed. She never expected this playboy to want to stay.
But when Derek pushes for more than she's prepared to give, will Sophie give him heart? Or let him slip through her fingers?
