Today, I have a guest post by Robin Covington about her novella “Free Agent” in the Hot on Ice anthology. 20% of the royalties will be donated to Home for our Troops. I also like that in the anthology, each team member has their own story!
Can I tell you a secret? I don’t know anything about hockey. Now, I did research to write the story for this anthology but it was the first time I’d ever watched a hockey game. But, I LOVE sports romance – baseball, football, rugby, and even hockey heroes are my catnip. Maybe it’s the alpha maleness of the whole thing or the appeal of a man who works and hones his body to be at a top competitive level. So sexy!!!
In my book, FREE AGENT, DC Washington is a defenseman for the Rage and is fearless on the ice but hasn’t always been so brave when he took off his skates. But, just prior to the beginning of this season, he took a bold step out of the closet and became the first openly gay player in the league. It was a year of ups and downs and he was lucky to have the support of most of his teammates and fans and winning the Cup with those guys was a penultimate moment. He never thought it could get any better.
Now he has the chance to go back to his hometown and play and work with the LGBTQ kids at the youth center where he first learned to play hockey. The only problem is Etienne: one of the medical staff for the Rage, and the man DC has wanted for far too long. The chance to see if their sparks have what it takes to burn is right there . . . just as he’s about to move one-thousand miles away. Bad timing . . .
I’m so excited to offer this book as part of the HOT ON ICE anthology. Twenty percent of the revenue from the sale of this set will go to support HOMES FOR OUR TROOPS – an organization which provides mortgage free homes to wounded veterans and their families.
A great read. A great cause. An unbeatable combination.
About Hot on Ice: A Hockey Romance Anthology…
The New Orleans Cajun Rage professional hockey team just won the Cup. No one thought they’d do it. They were a team of shoulda beens, never coulda beens and a star or two. They’d only been in the Crescent City for three years before this year’s Cinderella run that had them skating off the ice with the championship. Over the following summer, each player gets to keep the Cup for a day. Nobody knows why, but whoever has the Cup falls in love. USA Today bestsellers Robin Covington, Desiree Holt, Kimberly Kincaid, Nana Malone, and Virginia Nelson, Publisher’s Weekly bestseller Angi Morgan, along with Xio Axelrod, Christi Barth, Andie J. Christopher, Avery Flynn, Kim Golden, Lena Hart, Robin Kaye, Katie Kenyhercz, Heather Long, Kate Meader, Susan Scott Shelley, and Misty D.
