American figure skater Carrie Parker's Winter Games dreams
were dashed when her philandering partner
caused one of the greatest scandals in skating history.
Blacklisted from competing in the United
States, her career is overâ€¦until she receives a mysterious
invitation and is paired with the most
infuriating, talentedâ€”and handsomeâ€”skater she's ever met.
Russian champion Anton Belikov knows sacrifice. He gave up a
normal life and any hope of a
meaningful relationship to pursue his dream. And he's come
closeâ€”with a silver medal already under
his belt, the next stop is the gold. All he needs is a
partner. While he's never forgotten the young
American skater he seduced one long-ago night in Amsterdam,
he never expected to be confronted with
their pastâ€¦never mind share the ice with her.
When what starts as a publicity stunt grows into something
real, Carrie and Anton's partnership will
test their loyalties to family, country and each other. With
only a few months to train for the
competition of a lifetime, can they master technique and
their emotions, or will they lose their
footing and fall victim to the heartaches of their pasts?
