Summary

It's normal for rain to stop play in cricket. But that's not all: flying objects, passing dictators, animals of all kinds including a very improbable tiger – they have all had the same effect. But even when the game keeps going, cricket is a magnet for the weird and wonderful. 
 
For the past quarter-century the Chronicle section of Wisden has been collecting the most remarkable events in the game: the eccentric, the extraordinary and the excruciatingly funny. 
 
This is the cricket that reference books would normally ignore, from the village greens of England to the back alleys of Asia. This selection is about Tendulkar-worshippers and angry neighbours; about scoring a thousand and being all out for nought. There are politicians and protesters; celebs and streakers; judges and jobsworths ... and batsmen who really do murder the bowlers.

    Alana had loved hockey all her life. When she attended a game she didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. So, she was shocked when after a game she was asked out by a player. In fact, she had been so shocked she had said No. Little did she realize that that one little word would change her life forever.
     
    Ronan was a star. He was feared on the ice and adored by his fans. He had women falling at his feet. No one ever told him no— Until Alana.
     
    She was about to learn that no one turned him down and got away with it. Ronan always got what he wanted. And now he wanted her.
     
    This book is subtitled as Book One under this collection. However, each book is standalone and not related to each other in their storylines. They are published under the ‘Dark Ice Collection’ title so that readers can quickly identify my books that share the genres of Dark erotic romance and Professional Hockey.
     
     
     
    This book is in the Dark ‘romance’ genre. It contains taboo subject matter that some readers may find disturbing.
