Killian Bosch knows he’s his own worst enemy – he just doesn’t give a damn. The star forward of a minor league hockey team, he’s unstoppable on the ice. His reckless behavior, devil-may-care attitude and complete disregard for consequences have made him a major source of headaches for the Fenway Flyers’ brass.
But the new Flyers owner is more steel than brass. Sidney Stahl is a disciplined woman who parlayed earnings from a college job into a real estate empire. She’s determined to transform the Flyers from marketing nightmare to hockey powerhouse. Once she gets Killian in line, she knows the rest of the team will follow his lead.
The seduction of his sexy new team owner is a challenge too forbidden for Killian to resist. Sidney plays into his attraction as a means of controlling him, but soon finds that she’s the one surrendering. It’s all on the line as Killian and Sidney are forced to choose - business or pleasure?
My anger drained away. I couldn’t deny the sincerity on his face. “Alright,” I said softly. “I apologize for jumping you before letting you explain.”
“You haven’t jumped me yet, Sidney. But you will.”
A thousand butterflies took flight in my stomach as his eyes held mine. His gaze was intense, sexy and sincere. Instinct told me to fight back – stand up for myself. But the words wouldn’t come out of my mouth.
“You intrigue me like no one ever has,” he said, looking down at me. “So I’m trying.”
I nodded, my skin heating under his inspection. I needed to take control of this conversation but Killian saved me the trouble.
“I have to get to practice,” he said, taking a step back. The spell was broken, and I rose from my chair.
I followed him to the door and he paused with his hand over the handle. I wanted to reach out and touch him. Any part of him would do. I just wanted to lay my hand on his arm and feel the warmth of his skin and the strength of the muscle beneath. It would relax and incite me at the same time.
But one touch would only make me want more, so I stepped back.
“Have a good practice,” I said.
He met my eyes one more time and then turned the handle, opened the door and left. I went back to my desk and flopped into the chair with a sigh, wondering how the hell I was supposed to focus on work now.

Bennett Morse devotes his time to chasing two things: an NHL career and women.

One night is all she wants from the left winger who seems to have all the right moves. Soon circumstance draws her back to Bennett, and the sparks between them become a fiery blaze. But with the stakes high, will they risk it all and put their hearts on the line?
