Brody Mitchell is a damn good hockey player with the NHL contract to prove it. He loves the game, but he hates the hype, the spotlight and the puck bunnies who only want to score an athlete husband. He’s been burned before. He’s not looking to repeat that mistake. But a one-night stand with a beautiful brunette may change his mind. As a brand-new sports reporter for the Philadelphia Record, Tara Downey should be more interested in tracking down a hot trade rumor than in how many times the hot stranger can rock her world. But after bombing out on an assignment, she can't resist a taste of him as a consolation … even if it’s only for one night. In the light of day, they find themselves on opposite sides of the boards. Can she trust him to hold her heart safe? Or will tensions tear them apart?
