Can this fake marriage survive real life?
It was now or never for hockey star Donovan Legori. He’d been keeping his head down and his skates on the ice since his painful divorce. Getting traded was the only thing that mattered. Tired of playing back-up— he was ready for a team that would make him a starting goalie. What he wasn’t ready for was falling for his teammate’s spunky sister.
Fiery redhead Tara Laassonen needed a fresh start and a one-way ticket out of Finland. Moving to be near her professional hockey player brother in Anchorage seemed like the perfect escape, especially when his tall, dark and handsome teammate made her forget all about her disastrous break up back home.
Just as things were heating up, Tara found both her heart and her visa on thin ice. And Donovan discovered that a marriage of convenience was anything but easy, especially when forced to choose: Hockey or Tara.
About the Author:
USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.
Kat’s been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

Donovan is a member of the Alaska Blizzards and although he is happy there what he really wants is to be a starting goaltender so his future with the team is uncertain. He may be attracted to Tara but due to his past he doesn’t believe his career and a relationship will work but when she needs a husband he is willing to be that man.
Tara came to Alaska to be near her brother but with every passing day her chances of remaining in the country diminish as well. Romance hasn’t been kind to her the past either but the best way to ensure she can stay is by marrying a citizen and Donovan is willing to be that man. It isn’t long before their arrangement starts to feel genuine but will the challenge they face bring them closer or tear them apart?
After being hurt in the past both Donovan and Tara are cautious but I really enjoyed seeing them open their hearts to the future they could have together.
