Razor sharp between the pipes, mysterious off the ice, Malakai Petrov is the Chicago Fury’s notorious goalie.
The 6’5 Russian giant is hiding an entire world behind the bars of his mask. He thinks his secrets are buried deep enough so that no one can ever crack the ice guarding his stone heart. Until he meets a certain teammate’s sister who’s got a knack for sticking her nose in places it doesn’t belong.
Charlotte Greene met the man behind the mask years before anyone knew his name. The punk chick with calloused fingers from the strings of her violin never could shake the memory of him.
Stealing his dog, leaving her panties on his stairs, batting her silver-eyes, forcing him to question everything he ever knew. These two are skating on thin ice and it won’t be long until it shatters.
Kai is a man with so many parts as he protects the goal for his hockey team, is a great teammate and a loyal friend who would do anything to help those he cares about without any regard to the consequences to himself. He also hides a devastating past, so he allows few people close and even with those he holds something back or at least he did until Charlotte.
Charlotte is the sister of Kai’s roommate, teammate and best friend. She is an accomplished violinist who has a past of her own that she is trying to overcome, and she too puts everyone else first. She and Kai share an abbreviated past that had long reaching effects on both of them and now that fate has brought them together, she is determined to have a future with this complex man.
Charlotte is fire while Kai is ice so although they shouldn’t work together, they are exactly what the other needs. There is no denying the physical connection between them, but it is the emotional connection that makes their story so special.
