Minnesota Caribou Book One

“This book pulls at your heartstrings while keeping your blood pumping!”~ Amazon Reviewer

She’s my friend’s little sister.

But I’ve ached for her for years… and I won’t be denied.

What does the star center for the Minnesota Caribou professional hockey team do in the face of the ultimate betrayal?

Right, I’ve sworn off women because I caught my fiancée with my brother. Now, they’re both dead to me.They represent an ache so deep I might never recover.

I’ve never known a goal I couldn’t score – or a girl I couldn’t score with.

Until I see her curled up in a sexy ball in my hospital room.

She’s off limits.

Julia Wales is lush, smart, more determined than I am, and one hundred percent taboo. For the first time in my life, I want someone I can’t have.

She’s the successful business owner who obeys every rule. I’m the guy who breaks them.

Not since my injury have I shown a woman my scars.

Until now… and there’s no going back.


BENCHED is a full-length steamy sports romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Colleen Charles. It has a small-town feel, a second chances theme and an ex you’ll want to throw headfirst into Lake Superior. It’s the first book in the gripping MINNESOTA CARIBOU hockey series but can be read as a standalone.

“Seriously Riveting!” ~ Goodreads Reviewer
