Free July 4th NJ Ice Cats Short Story!

Now that the Stanley Cup has been awarded, hockey fans have a long wait through the summer until the puck drops again on the new NHL season. Roll on October!

In the meantime, it’s a good time to catch up on hockey romances.

Some lovely readers and fans of the NJ Ice Cats have asked to see a holiday-themed short story for July 4th. Always happy to please, I wrote one for you.

So, here it is … A Perfect Contest … and it’s FREE for you to download during July!

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?

Remember, this is only free during July, so download it before it’s gone!

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.

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?

This time, it’s Will Hardacre’s story.

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?
