About this ebook

Alexander “Rush” Markov has been given an ultimatum by his team—shape up or ship out.

Alex is celebrating his biggest season in professional hockey, and he’s enjoying every minute of it—perhaps a little too much. He’s been non-stop partying like a rockstar since his team won it all, and management isn’t pleased. Next thing Alex knows, he’s been exiled to a remote island with orders to lay low, stay out of trouble, and avoid one-night stands.

Rosalind Newcomb is the quintessential good girl, and she’s fine with her role. Sure, she gets lonely and wishes for a special someone, but the choices on Madrona island are slim to none. When a panty-melting mystery man disrupts the peace and quiet in her bookstore, it’s dislike at first sight. The infuriating man turns her ordered life upside down and inside out and has her thinking about hot summer nights and tangled sheets. Only Alex isn’t who she thinks he is, and love isn’t all hearts and roses.

As Alex battles who he pretends to be and who he really is, he also resists falling in love for the first time in his life. His intense feelings have him ready to bolt, and only he can decide if love is worth fighting for.

Alexander “Rush” Markov plays professional hockey, hard, fast and parties even harder. Alex is also a closet reader and he often escapes into the world of book. After over celebrating his teams Stanley Cup win, he knows he needs to ease off his partying ways. When management decides he needs an intervention, Alex is packed off to Madrona Island with instructions to keep a low profile and to get his life and his future back on track. Rosalind Newcomb owns a book shop and she is annoyed when Alex begins to turn her life upside down. Alex really is the quintessential bad boy, hot, alpha and so sexy that women find him hard to resist until he meets Rosalind. She wants nothing to do with him at first but as she gets to know the real Alex, walls begin to tumble and the chemistry builds although she has no idea who he really is. From the start of Deflected I wanted these two to get together and remain that way. However lies told, even by omission can pollute and destroy a relationship before it can become established. What will happen when Rosalind finds out the truth? Will Alex take a chance on love or will he run before he can get to involved?
