Can you read just one? From award-winning author, Anna Sugden, comes a mouthwatering selection of five holiday-themed, bite-sized romances featuring players from her popular hockey romance series, The New Jersey Ice Cats.
A Perfect Contest (July 4th)
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 (Halloween)
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 (Thanksgiving)
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 (Valentine’s Day)
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 (Easter)
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?
