Series: Chinooks Hockey Team, Book 1
Georgeanne Howard, charm school graduate and Southern belle extraordinaire, leaves her fiance at the altar when she realizes she just can't marry a man old enough to be her grandfather, no matter how rich he is. John Kowalsky unknowingly helps her escape, and only when it's too late does he realize that he's absconded with his boss's bride. At the height of his hockey career, this bad boy isn't looking to be anybody's savior but his own, no matter how beautiful this angel may be. But a long night stretches ahead of them--a night too sultry to resist temptation.
When Georgeanne and John meet again, she is on her way to becoming Seattle's domestic darling and he is past his hellraising days. But he is shocked to learn that their single unforgettable night in paradise produced a daughter, and he is determined to be part of her life. Georgeanne has loved John since the moment she jumped into his little red Corvette seven years ago, but she doesn't want to risk her heart again. Is he really a changed man? And will he risk the wrath of his boss, and one final chance at glory, to prove that this time his love will be everlasting?
What I thoughtI've been wanting to read this series for a while, being intrigued by both the hockey aspect (hot hockey players is always a plus) and hidden child surprise plot. It definitely turned out to be much better than what I thought it would be. I was expecting a decent, simple story, instead I got a very well written, detailed plot to pull me completely under its spell.
Loved the characters. All of them. They all have their own personality and they don't blend together, like you see in other series. I wasn't sure what to make of Georgeanne at first, but the more her story unraveled the more she wiggled into my heart. She has a great story and she's overcome a lot, especially for the time period of when she was a kid.
I'm pretty excited to read on in this series. I loved the subplots and the secondary romance and the very engaging writing style. I definitely look forward to meeting more of those hunky hockey players as well.
