Practice Makes Perfect

 

Patrick “Patch” Donnelly has what it takes to be the best goalie in the NHL…if only he could learn to control his temper. When Coach orders him to get his head in the game with private yoga classes, Patch isn’t having it. There’s no way this tough Boston guy would be caught dead downward dog-ing his way to inner peace. But if he refuses, he risks his starting position and the dream he sacrificed everything for, including joining the priesthood.

 

Yoga instructor Margot Kowalski is over men. After yet another toxic relationship, she’s eager to forget love and focus on growing her business. Doing the Hellions head coach a favor by helping out a troubled player can't hurt, and it might give her career a high-profile boost. But free-spirited Margot is soon charming the pants off Patch. Literally. Her sassy combination of sweet and sexy proves irresistible to the goalie. Before Patch can give into temptation though, he’ll have to confess his biggest secret:

 

He’s a virgin.

 

But Patch is hiding more than sexual inexperience, and his dark past soon threatens to destroy his shot at true love.

Baseball star Maverick Jansen and Kelsey Sullivan fall into a complicated game of PR strategy by day and searing passion by night where they both find a new meaning to fast and hard.

STRIKE ONE
Days before the biggest game of playboy pitcher Maverick Jansen's career, his brother is killed in a horrific car accident. Determined not to let his teammates down, Mav pushes through his grief only to lose control of his signature pitch-and the series.

STRIKE TWO
Still dealing with the backlash of his once adoring fans, Maverick learns the team's owner plans to move the ball club to small town America. During a night of hard drinking Mav rails against the move to Hicksville while a fan records the entire tirade. His career takes a nosedive when the video goes viral right before spring training.

Kelsey Sullivan, Media Consultant, returns to her hometown of Pineville, Idaho after a former client implicates her in a drug cover-up. Kelsey is hired by the team's owner to help restore Maverick's image and find a way to get back his mojo. As the daughter of a minor league ball player who walked away from her and her unstable mother, Kelsey breaks her main client rule-no athletes-to restore her own tarnished image.

STRIKE THREE, or...Happily Ever After?
Forced to pretend they're a couple as a last ditch effort to secure his place on the team and fix his public image, Maverick and Kelsey's romance goes from on the bench to rounding the bases in no time.

Maverick knows what they have is more than just soul-shattering sex, but he'll have to overcome his fear of commitment to prove to Kelsey love can save them both. But once burned, twice shy Kelsey might not be able to trust again, unless she can bury her long-held belief that this bad boy baseball player isn't the happily-ever-after type.
As fast-paced and engrossing as any hockey game, Game Misconduct sizzles hot enough to melt ice. Bianca Sommerland definitely scores with this captivating, erotic read.~ Cherise Sinclair Author of Club Shadowlands and Queen of BDSM Romance

Night owl Reviews TOP PICK!- Game Misconduct was an amazing read. I absolutely loved it. I fell in love with the characters from the very beginning.~Tigger9

Give me more Bianca any day! And I will buy her books till I go into the poor house. Expertly executed BDSM play! And you will not be disappointed as a hockey fan, or a BDSM aficionado.~ Sir’s Kitten-Kinky Book Reviews

Ms. Summerland is an amazing writer, immersing you into a dark and dangerous world and making you completely emotionally attached to the characters.  With a delicious storyline and kinky characters outside of the norm, Game Misconduct pushes you outside of your comfort zone and rewards your submission with phenomenally erotic sex.  If you're a fan of hardcore BDSM, then this book is going to top your list of must reads!~ Silla Beaumont-Just Erotic Romance

This book is packed with lots of steamy scenes, some edgy BDSM play and several menage encounters.  The relationship between Oriana and her men goes beyond casual play partners to something deeper.  While I’m not a polyamory fan myself, I think Ms. Sommerland handled the outcome of this unique situation very well. GAME MISCONDUCT is a fabulous start to The Dartmouth Cobras series!~Diana-The Forbidden Bookshelves

Ms Sommerland takes us on an extremely incredible journey as we watch Oriana’s master her own sexuality. She comes to realize that there is more out there that she craves and desires, than she has ever realized.~ Rhayne-Guilty Pleasures


The game has always cast a shadow over Oriana Delgado's life. She should hate the game. But she doesn't. The passion and the energy of the sport is part of her. But so is the urge to drop the role of the Dartmouth Cobra owner's 'good daughter' and find a less...conventional one.

Playmaker, Max Perron, never expected a woman to accept him and his twisted desires. Oriana came close, but he wasn't surprised when she walked away. A girl like her needs normal. Which he can't give her. He's too much of a team player, and not just on the ice.

But then Oriana's father goes too far in trying to control her and she decides to use exposure as blackmail. Just the implication of her spending the night with the Cobra's finest should get her father to back off.

Turns out a team player is exactly what she needs.



He can't have her. And he can't tell anyone why.

Ski racer Dane “Danger” Hollister does not do relationships, though he keeps his reason a secret. The real-life curse he's inherited from his mother will eventually cost him everything: his place on the Olympic ski team, his endorsement income, and his ability to fly downhill at top speed.

Reluctant country girl Willow Reade meets Dane by accident. Literally. Her skidding truck forces him off the road during a blizzard. Stranded together in his Jeep as night falls, the two loneliest people in Vermont find themselves sharing more than they'd planned. And not just conversation.

Yet neither can guess how their unlikely tryst will threaten Dane’s frightening secret and Willow’s tentative peace with her own choices. Only mutual trust and understanding can end their pain and give them a hard won shot at love.

When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . . “Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips

Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.

Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.

Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.

A USA Today bestseller from Sarina Bowen

You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.

Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other? 

I loved this fresh new twist on the billionaire storyline and the absolutely dreamy hero. Nate is everything I could ever want in a book boyfriend - he's smart, confident, and completely smitten! Brooklynaire is sexy and addictive! #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely
