Summary

Most hockey players learn to play through the pain, but what about a broken heart? 
 
Christopher Lacey is on top of the world: at only eighteen years old, he’s been drafted in the first round by the Dallas Comets, made it onto the roster during his first professional training camp, and has even been promoted to the team’s top line. But his world crashes down around him when his beloved long-time girlfriend unceremoniously breaks up with him in a text message. 
 
Can she learn to deal with emotional insecurity after an injury has healed? 
 
Helene Michaels’ world changed after a childhood mistake led to a severe burn that took years to heal and overcome. While she still has trouble looking at her scars in the mirror, she hasn’t let that stop her from pursuing her goal of becoming a physical therapist and helping others deal with their own injuries. Helene gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shadow a working physical therapist to learn more about the field before returning to school to pursue her career choice. 
 
Two hurt souls meet. 
 
At the Comets’ annual Halloween party, Chris encounters a disguised Helene and feels his heart come alive for the first time since his breakup. Helene feels the attraction too, but she’s worried that Chris might not like what’s concealed behind her costume. Will she finally be brave enough to reveal what she’s been hiding for years? Will he open himself up again to find out the difference between infatuation and true love? Or will their relationship get off to a false start and end before it can begin?

When King discovers stowaway Sophie, however, the journey becomes anything but boring. 
    War? Or More? 
    He thinks she’s trying to trick him into marriage. She wouldn’t have him if he were the last man on earth. But carriages bring close quarters, dark secrets, and unbearable temptation, making opposites altogether too attractive . . .
