ON THE SURFACE

NHL player Tim Hollander lost his temper one time and threw a water bottle at an abusive fan. After "Bottlegate," he's traded to the San Diego Barracudas, where he'll need to keep the bad publicity to a minimum while proving he can still compete with the younger guys on the ice. When pediatric nurse Erin Collier is threatened by an obnoxious fan, Tim rushes to defend the pretty stranger, throwing a punch in the process. The chemistry between Tim and Erin is palpable, but unless he can convince her to see beyond the hockey-thug surface to the good guy underneath, their relationship won't last longer than a single season.

ACROSS THE LINE

Calder Griffin needs to get back in shape. Sidelined last season by a knee injury, he's determined to get back on the ice and play the best hockey of his career. Becca Chen has poured all her energy into the restaurant she owns, desperate to prove that she can succeed in the career of her choice, not her parents'. But one five-hour plane ride flirting with charming, magic-on-the-ice Calder and suddenly she can't keep her hands off him. They live on opposite coasts, and they're both too devoted to their careers. It can't last. All they have to do is prevent their feelings from crossing the line from lust to love…

OUT OF THE GAME

Alex Sullivan may be the San Diego Barracudas' resident playboy, but he hasn't been able to forget the woman who kissed him like her life depended on it ten months ago. When he sees her again at a teammate's wedding, he can't think of anything but spending more time with her. Preferably naked. Claire Marzano lost years to an overbearing husband, and she's not going to answer to anyone ever again. A hot fling is just what she needs to get back in the game, and that's exactly what sexy Alex offers—one wild long weekend away, no promises or obligations. Until a surprise announcement and an on-ice accident threaten to derail everything…or cause Alex to finally ditch his old ways and become the man Claire needs him to be.
NEW IN THE SANTA FE BOBCATS SERIES!

Sometimes the best defense is a good offense…

Aileen is a sports reporter trying to make a name for herself without relying on her looks, And what better way to do that than to break a scandal about one of the fastest rising stars on the Santa Fe Bobcats? Killian seems too good to be true, so she knows he must be hiding something…

It’s hard enough breaking into the NFL—even more so when you’re a single dad. Killian isn’t proud that he’s keeping his son a secret, but his ex has a reputation that could tarnish his squeaky clean image for good. So when Aileen starts sniffing around, Killian decides to distract her by any means necessary.

But Aileen is more than capable of giving as good as she gets…

Includes a preview of Jeanette Murray's First to Fight
