"She's been there, done that-but never with the sexy hockey player next door. "
"Old Port Nights, Book 1"
Dating, marriage, divorce...Audra Leone has been there, done that. These days she's focused on her antiques business and doesn't need a man complicating her life.
Still, she can't help but notice the flirty ex-hockey player who owns the sports bar next door, but he's got two strikes against him. He's her landlord, and he's almost ten years younger-which puts Audra way outside the flock of twenty-somethings vying for his attention.
When Scott Beckett sees Audra hasn't closed shop during a major snowstorm, he checks in on her-to find her shackled to a post. He's more than happy to help and close the distance she keeps firmly between them. He's well over his playboy days and hungering for something stronger, something lasting.
One spontaneous, bone-melting kiss leads to an explosive night of passion, and Scott realizes the quiet antiques lady is everything he craves. But it'll take some doing-and maybe a disaster or two-to convince her to give forever a chance.
Warning: Contains a wounded heroine who's put her heart on ice, and an ex-jock who still knows how to run interference on her defenses. Could have you wishing for snow in July.
