First book in the New Jersey Ice Cats series

September 2013

A face-off—head vs. heart

For Jake Badoletti, this year is all about his career. He has a rare second chance to make the most of being a pro hockey player, so no parties, no scandals. Too bad he's met a woman who could sideline those plans. Maggie Goodman is not his usual type—right down to being a single mom. Still, the sizzling connection with this gorgeous brunette can't be ignored.

With a little juggling and a lot of focus, Jake manages to have the game and Maggie. Then his performance on the ice suffers and a scandal erupts. Now he can't afford the distraction of Maggie…even if she is perfect for him.

RT – 4 stars! “This nicely written first novel contains well-drawn characters and Sugden's use of detail makes the story come alive. Her descriptions of Maggie's ex and the hockey players are particularly good.”
