The New Orleans Cajun Rage professional hockey team just won the Cup. No one thought they’d do it: they were a team of shoulda beens, never coulda beens and a star or two. They’d only been in the Crescent City for three years before this year’s Cinderella run that had them skating off the ice with the championship. Over the following summer, each player gets to keep the Cup for a day. Nobody knows why, but whoever has the Cup falls in love. USA Today Bestsellers Robin Covington, Desiree Holt, Kimberly Kincaid, Nana Malone and Virginia Nelson, Publisher’s Weekly Bestseller Angi Morgan, along with Xio Axelrod, Christi Barth, Andie J. Christopher, Avery Flynn, Kim Golden, Lena Hart, Robin Kaye, Katie Kenyhercz, Heather Long, Kate Meader, Susan Scott Shelley, and Misty D. Waters bring you 18 romances with smoking hot heroes—both on and off the ice.
HOT ON ICE: Good reads, great cause
CAGED, USA Today Bestseller Virginia Nelson, Oliver Tremblay, right winger for the Ragin’ Cajuns, plans to visit his parent’s graves and give his hometown a little good attention, but instead finds himself embroiled in Maisie’s constant escapades. Maisie has other plans—she intends prove to him that she’s just the girl to go skate to skate with him, whether he likes it or not.
A note from Virginia Nelson: the heroine in my Hot On Ice story, is like me. She’s from a family who proudly served our country and that dedication to service is reflected in her personality. Although she never served in the military, she helps out in her local area. She makes quilts, volunteers for the Red Cross, and even helps out at the meals prepared for the elderly in a local church she does not attend.
Those choices were made because she was raised by a family willing to literally sacrifice anything, and she’s not rewarded or otherwise given anything but peace of mind for her time and ability to care about others.
When people sign up to join the military, they’re not expecting anything big in return. They’re willing to risk their lives and their well-being for something bigger than themselves. When they come home, like Maisie, they’re often forgotten. But they shouldn’t be, and that’s what is great about charities like Homes for Our Troops. They make a difference for families and service members who sacrificed, not expecting anything in return. They give them homes that they can live in comfortably and, although nothing can repay what they gave up in their service, it shows them that we appreciate what they did and what they continue to do each and every day.
I’m proud to be part of something that will help a charity dedicated to helping our troops when they come home. And, to all the military families out there… thank you.
About Kate Meader’s story in the anthology, IN SKATES TROUBLE, a prequel novella in her brand new Chicago Rebels hockey series . . .
Right winger Ford “Killer” Callaghan can’t believe he let the anonymous woman who blew his mind slip away into the night. He’ll track her down because once could never be enough—even if discovering Addison Williams’s identity places her strictly out of bounds. Stolen kisses. Secret hook-ups. Deliciously forbidden in every way. Can a passion that started in the dark find a lifetime of love in the light?
He’ll give her what she needs . . .
Addison Williams isn’t looking for romance, but when she encounters an eavesdropping stranger on an adjoining hotel balcony, she figures she’s due a little fun. She just hadn’t reckoned on the “fun” escalating so quickly to “out of control.” One minute she’s flirting with a whiskey-graveled voice in the dark, the next that same voice is telling her to do things. Hot, wicked things.

The problem is, that also means going back to his hometown and seeing January Sinclair, a.k.a., the woman he left behind. Will Finn and January learn to build new trust—or will their ghosts keep them from falling in deep?
RANSOM, USA Today Bestseller Nana Malone, Money, power, prestige…reject. Ransom Cox is —The Player. His whole life, hockey player, Ransom Cox, has watched the people he loves the most reject and leave him. He’s learned it’s better to be on his own. After the scandal of his wife walking out on him right before the championships, citing his bedroom “over” prowess as the reason, he can’t seem to escape the spotlight. The last thing he wants is to be stranded in a cabin with the one girl he’s always wanted. The one girl who could destroy him.
BLADE, Avery Flynn – Bad girl Gillie Pike has gone straight, but someone with a lot of money wants to bring her out of retirement to steal the Cup and make sure it’s found in star goalie Flynn Kazakov’s possession. They call him Crazy-kov for a reason and nothing makes him more nuts than his best friend’s sexy little sister who swears she’s the only one who can keep him out of jail and on the ice.
COURAGE, Lena Hart – Newly appointed head coach Mason “The Rage” Courage is in for the fight of his life. What should have been the biggest night of his career turns into the worst moment in his life when his wife Jules serves him with divorce papers.

PENALTY BOX BLUES, Robin Kaye – Stryker Gyllenhaal, enforcer on the Ragin’ Cajun’s, knows that once he hits Boise, his time spent in the penalty box is nothing compared to the payback Karma Kincaid has in store for him. When he finds out she has hired a handler, Trish Reynolds, his old college tutor, he’s not sure who the real enforcer is. Karma, because she owns him for an entire week, or Trish, the only woman who knows his secret, and can slam his heart against the boards with a sideways glance. He is so pucked.
