Originally from Ireland, Kate Meader cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Harlequins thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron, a fire hose, or a hockey stick, and she's there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines (and heroes) who can match their men quip for quip. Visit her at KateMeader.com.
And—wait for it—cursed with a deadly allergy to erecto-plasm. As in she’ll seriously swell up and die if seminal fluid even touches her. Which means finding the perfect guy to punch her V card is literally a matter of life and death.
She wants a no-strings summer fling, but she needs someone she can trust. A puck buddy who isn’t going to get overly emotional. Someone who’s as savvy in the sack as he is on the ice.
That’s where I come in. It’s a simple request, really—and one I would be happy to honor.
If it weren’t for the whole life-and-death thing.
If I hadn’t just been traded to a team thousands of miles away from this girl who makes me think not all relationships are a losing game.
If I wasn’t already crazy in love with her.
This arrangement is a disaster waiting to happen, but the heart wants what it wants, and mine wants Bree, danger and all.
PUCK BUDDIES is a sexy, standalone romantic comedy from USA Today bestseller Lili Valente.
