Summary

The Academy is an International Sports Mecca for teen athletes. There  are only two ways in.  Deep pockets or enough talent to score a  scholarship.   
 
Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come  true when she earns a scholarship to The Academy. Plucked from her small  town, Maya moves to the sports training facility/boarding school to  (hopefully) start the beginning of her pro career. But Maya's fantasy of  The Academy doesn't quite match the reality. Because where there are hot, talented teens, there's a lot of drama. Meet the players: 
 
Nicole: A tennis star who feels threatened by Maya (but she'd never admit it). 
Cleo: Maya's rebel/punk roommate who is nearing the top of the golf world. 
Renee: The gorgeous swimmer with enough money to buy her way into The Academy. 
Travis: The son of The Academy owner--perfectly groomed to be the next NFL star.  
Jake: Travis' younger brother--the bad boy to his brother's good.

    The #1 New York Times bestseller and the true story behind the film: A rugby team resorts to the unthinkable after a plane crash in the Andes. Spirits were high when the Fairchild F-227 took off from Mendoza, Argentina, and headed for Santiago, Chile. On board were forty-five people, including an amateur rugby team from Uruguay and their friends and family. The skies were clear that Friday, October 13, 1972, and at 3:30 p.m., the Fairchild’s pilot reported their altitude at 15,000 feet. But one minute later, the Santiago control tower lost all contact with the aircraft. For eight days, Chileans, Uruguayans, and Argentinians searched for it, but snowfall in the Andes had been heavy, and the odds of locating any wreckage were slim.   Ten weeks later, a Chilean peasant in a remote valley noticed two haggard men desperately gesticulating to him from across a river. He threw them a pen and paper, and the note they tossed back read: “I come from a plane that fell in the mountains . . .”   Sixteen of the original forty-five passengers on the F-227 survived its horrific crash. In the remote glacial wilderness, they camped in the plane’s fuselage, where they faced freezing temperatures, life-threatening injuries, an avalanche, and imminent starvation. As their meager food supplies ran out, and after they heard on a patched-together radio that the search parties had been called off, it seemed like all hope was lost. To save their own lives, these men and women not only had to keep their faith, they had to make an impossible decision: Should they eat the flesh of their dead friends?   A remarkable story of endurance and determination, friendship and the human spirit, Alive is the dramatic bestselling account of one of the most harrowing quests for survival in modern times.

    The Dark Ice Collection contains books that are about Professional Hockey players that have very dark sides.
     
    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.
     
    Due to the content, this book is intended for adults 18 years and older.
