He’s a hard hitter, she’s a straight shooter. Can they stop the sparks from flying? Do they want to?
Zane Winchester is a beast on the ice, known for racking up penalties and delivering hard blows. No one would suspect the complicated nature of his personal life, or just what it entailed. And no one, not even him, would have suspected what one unexpected encounter with a remarkable woman would do to his life.
Mara Matthews is a regular woman with a regular job and a regular life. Then she meets the father of one of her little students, and regular becomes the last word to describe her life. Zane is intense, funny, charming, and drop dead gorgeous; he shouldn’t pay any attention to someone like her. But Zane isn’t giving up, and Mara doesn’t want him to.
Welcome to Northbrook Hockey Elite!
Six professional hockey players used to play on an elite club team together, but have all separated and now play in the pro-hockey leagues. Not all of them were friends, yet circumstances bring them together, and for the greater good, maybe they can put aside their differences.

I’m loving these sports romances! It’s so fun that they all fit together. I love the characters and how they really have each other’s backs, even though they’re not on the same team any more.
This one features Zane and Mara. Zane is probably my favorite Northbrook Elite player so far! I love the way he takes care of his sweet daughter, Hope. He’s a big guy, but he’s really putty in her hands. And it was really funny that all the other guys were too.
Mara is a nurse/Zumba instructor. In fact, she’s Hope’s Zumba instructor. That was one thing I really loved about Mara. She is around kids an awful lot and she’s amazing with them.
I really loved the way these two characters just fit together. As I was reading the places in the book where they were separate, it just seemed like something was missing. When they were together, it just worked.
I loved everything about this one! And now I need to watch some hockey!
