Eden Christiansen never imagined her role as her younger
brother Owen’s cheerleader would keep her on the sidelines
of her own life. Sure, it feels good to be needed, but
looking after the reckless NHL rookie leaves little time for
Eden to focus on her own career. She dreamed of making a
name for herself as a reporter, but is stuck writing
obits—and starting to fear she doesn’t have the chops to
land a major story. If only someone would step up to mentor
Owen . . . but she knows better than to expect help from
team veteran and bad-boy enforcer Jace Jacobsen.
Jace has built his career on the infamous reputation of his
aggressive behavior—on and off the ice. Now at a crossroads
about his future in hockey, that reputation has him trapped.
And the guilt-trip he’s getting from Eden Christiansen isn’t
making things any easier. But when Owen’s carelessness leads
to a career-threatening injury and Eden stumbles upon a
story that could be her big break, she and Jace are thrown
together . . . and begin to wonder if they belong on the
same team after all.
