The Scoring Series #9.5
This novella was originally included In the On the Line anthology.
I've been called up from minor league hockey to play in the bigs. It's a dream come true until it isn't. I return from a road trip to find my beloved dog Wrigley has been dognapped from the boarding kennel. Before I know what's happening, I've been dragged into a social media storm after my vindictive ex is caught on camera dumping Wrigley in a deserted cul-de-sac on a snowy night. Not only am I being crucified on every social around, but Teddi, the nurse who's rescued Wrigley, refuses to relinquish him. I'm fighting to salvage my reputation and hang onto my hockey career while convincing Teddi that I'm not the uncaring guy my ex claims I am. The last thing I expected was to fall for Wrigley's self-appointed guardian on Christmas Eve.
