KILLIAN (On the Line, #1)
Killian Bosch knows he’s his own worst enemy – he just doesn’t give a damn. The star forward of a minor league hockey team, he’s unstoppable on the ice. His reckless behavior, devil-may-care attitude and complete disregard for consequences have made him a major source of headaches for the Fenway Flyers’ brass.
But the new Flyers owner is more steel than brass. Sidney Stahl is a disciplined woman who parlayed earnings from a college job into a real estate empire. She’s determined to transform the Flyers from marketing nightmare to hockey powerhouse. Once she gets Killian in line, she knows the rest of the team will follow his lead.
The seduction of his sexy new team owner is a challenge too forbidden for Killian to resist. Sidney plays into his attraction as a means of controlling him, but soon finds that she’s the one surrendering. It’s all on the line as Killian and Sidney are forced to choose - business or pleasure?
Killian was waiting outside my office, and I was killing time because I was pissed at him. I was also trying to banish the giddy sensation that was making my stomach churn nervously.
I’m pissed at him. I’m pissed at him. I’m more pissed than excited.
I repeated the words to myself, closing my eyes so they could sink in. As the Flyers owner, it was my job to reform this team, not get starry-eyed over its captain.
I pushed a button on my phone. “Barb, I’m ready for Bosch.”
“I’ll send him in.”
When the door to my office opened, I told my heart to stop pounding like a jackhammer. So his blond hair had recently been cut into the super short style I loved. So his shirt was full of muscled chest and bicep muscles. So he had a black eye which, on him, was sexy. So what? I was pissed at him.
“Mr. Bosch,” I said, my tone icy. “Please sit down.”
He sighed as he sank into a leather chair in front of my desk.
I cut him off. “Don’t start with me. I had hoped we were past this BS. Another citation for disorderly conduct? How low do I have to set my standards before you can conform to them? Is this just so you can show me how much of a pain you can be?”
He stood and leaned on the front of my desk, his big hands spread out on the dark wood surface.
“It was a misunderstanding,” he said. “I wasn’t looking for trouble.”
I sighed with aggravation and glared at him. “You’re just going to keep ramping it up, aren’t you? I’m betting that eventually you’ll be showing up to games drunk and then screwing groupies in the arena.”
“I don’t do shit like that, Sid. But since you have such a low opinion of me, maybe I should show you just how bad I can be.”

He learned the hard way that choosing only one leads to heartache.

One night is all she wants from the left winger who seems to have all the right moves. Soon circumstance draws her back to Bennett, and the sparks between them become a fiery blaze. But with the stakes high, will they risk it all and put their hearts on the line?
