Trying to get a grip on his life and career since Gia turned his life upside down.
The star player. The chosen one. Tyler Kidd ruled the hockey league. He was driven hard by a hatred for losing. Yet behind his on ice persona he was damaged. Betrayed by the one he loved, he battled his demons with alcohol and women. One fueled the other and spiraled out of control. Losing his spot on the team was not on Tyler’s agenda, until it was. Faced with ruining his career, he had one chance to make things right and not lose the one thing he lived for. Hockey.
Charged with taking hold of Tyler’s career, Paige Martin never dreamed her new job as Renegades PR assistant meant cleaning up after his mistakes. She never imagined she would see a side of him he showed to no-one. And she definitely never thought she’d end up in his bed.
She was everything he never knew he needed and he was everything she knew she should never touch. Lines blur, careers are on the line. But what happens when you have no other choice than playing the game?
She’s a Hockey Romance Author and Pittsburgh Penguins fan.
Melody was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she lives with her husband, son and two dogs. She is a hockey fan-for the game and the players and loves her Starbucks Iced Mochas more than she should. The cashiers have finally learned her name and the correct way to spell it. (They now sing it “Melody”)
Her whole family are avid Pittsburgh Penguins fans and like going to hockey games when they get the chance. Melody enjoys taking her son to meet the players on game days. It’s no secret that meeting the players is just as exciting for her as it is for her son; especially when it comes to her favorite player!
Melody has loved writing since she was small, in school she never met a creative writing assignment that she didn’t love. She is lucky enough to have a wonderful husband who encourages her to write. When she was laid off from her job of 14 years, he was supportive about letting her stay home and take care of their son. During that time she discovered hockey-romances and found a renewed love of reading as well as a passion for writing.
Melody spends her spare time reading hockey romances. At holiday time she really enjoys any romance about Christmas. When it is the hockey off-season, she enjoys swimming and spending her days out in the sun.
Her first novella is a steamy beach romance – Until You. Her second book is the first in her hockey romance series about the Renegades, Score On Me. Book two of the series is Unsportsmanlike Conduct. Dive in and meet the Renegades. They are hot on and off the ice.
