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?

    A lonely wedding chapel built as a tribute to lost love just might hold the long-awaited secret to hope and reconciliation. 
    For sixty years, the wedding chapel has stood silent and empty. Retired football hall-of-famer Jimmy “Coach” Westbrook built the chapel by hand, stone by stone, for his beautiful and beloved Collette Greer, whom he lost so many years ago. The chapel is a sanctuary for his memories, a monument to true love, and a testament to his survival of the deepest pain and loss. 
    Photographer Taylor Branson left her hometown of Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, to make a new life for herself in New York. She had lots to run away from, not least of all a family history of broken promises and broken dreams. Love catches Taylor off guard when she falls for Jack Forester, a successful advertising executive, and their whirlwind romance leads to an elopement—then to second guesses. Jack, in spite of his very real love for Taylor, is battling his own demons and struggles to show her his true self and the depths of his love for her. 
    Taking a photography assignment in Heart’s Bend, Taylor is thrown back into a past of family secrets buried deep beneath the sands of time. When Taylor and Coach’s journeys collide, they each rediscover the heartbeat of their own dreams as they learn that the love they long to hold is well worth the wait.

    I have to get my wife pregnant. I know what you’re thinking, boo hoo, poor me, right?
