Portland Storm : The Second Period
Delay of Game With her father's health in question, Sara Thomas is focused on reducing his anxiety. That's no small feat considering his high-stress job. Everyone knows Sara's single; no one knows she's pregnant. There's never a good time to unexpectedly get knocked up, but now is not it. But when Jonny, one of her father's players, seeks vigilante justice on the ice, everything gets tossed out the window. Cam Johnson's role with the Portland Storm entails more than scoring goals. He ensures other teams don't take liberties with the Storm's star players. Cam will always fight for his team-even if he has to break the rules. He's used to taking penalties, but he never meant for anyone else to suffer from his choices. When Cam's actions cause Sara's worst fears to be realized, he blames himself. Suddenly Cam is taking penalties at every turn...at least where Sara is concerned. He's got to think on his feet or he'll end up with a Delay of Game. Double Major It's the NHL's draft day, but the whole Portland Storm team is back together for an entirely different event. Complete with a double wedding, an unanticipated guest, overdue apologies, unexpected goodbyes, and fresh starts, this big day has the potential to get them all called for a Double Major. In the Zone It was supposed to be a night of fake names, half-truths, and anonymous sex. Keith Burns, star defenseman for the Portland Storm, was just looking for a way to pass the time. Brianna Hayden wanted to find herself after health issues changed everything. Anonymity is the name of their game; the rules were laid down at the outset. A chance encounter brings them back together long after the game should have ended, shattering their initial rules. It isn't long before things complicated. Their physical chemistry is off the charts, but it isn't enough. They both want a future, but Keith has an unspeakable history he can't share with anyone. Brie needs the truth if they are going to have any chance at moving forward. If he can't give it to her, it might land him a permanent spot in her penalty box. If Keith can get In the Zone, he'll be on the forecheck-but Brie's heart is the goal he's seeking.
