Minnesota Caribou: Book Seven

I’ve heard it all before. I need to grow up. Take things more seriously. Stop making headlines for anything other than my game.

Even though it wasn’t my fault that I recently got into a fight at a bar over a woman…yeah yeah, no one wants anymore excuses. My agent just wants me to overhaul my public image before I lose my contract.

How to do that is a mystery until my temporary housecleaner, Gemma, makes me an offer that I know I should refuse.

She asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend to keep her ex away. That’s easy enough. I’m a big guy—intimidating to most (though not to her)—and I have money and power as one of the top defensemen in the NHL.

But what do I get out of it?

The rehabbed image I need to keep playing the game I love.

Being in a relationship with a single mother tells people that I’m mature and serious. Two things they say I’m not. This could work… so okay… I take her up on it.

Even though it’s all pretend, I like that she has something else in her life besides me. Her sassy independence inspires me to be a better man. The kind of man that she could really fall for.

It’ll take a lot to convince her that I’m serious about changing, but I’ll stop at nothing to claim both Gemma and her daughter as mine.


ICED is a full-length steamy sports romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Colleen Charles. It has a small-town feel, a redemption theme, and a cocky hero (Kane) you’ll root for until he gets his much anticipated happily ever after. It’s the seventh book in the gripping MINNESOTA CARIBOU hockey series but can be read as a standalone.
