The Puck Bunny – a hockey rom-com by Stephanie Queen
PLUS A BONUS HOCKEY ROMANCE!
from the Some Girls Like It Cold series
What made me so self-conscious?
It was my name. Not Sara–my last name–Bellagamba. (I knew you’d understand.)
When I was young I couldn’t say it right and when I tried, the kids made fun of me.
Handy Hint: explaining the meaning of your name–Bellagamba means beautiful leg in Italian–to a bunch of five-year-olds won’t stop their teasing. In fact, I think it’s like some kind of trigger for escalation.
And I’m pretty sure if I didn’t run, they would have stoned me for being crazy. (only slightly exaggerating)
to my current post college career and nothing much has changed. I’m still self conscious and still have a tendency to say ridiculous things at inopportune moments.
Except now I’m working for the Boston Brawlers NHL organization, my dream job–because I’m a massive hockey fan and a particular fan of one player–Quinn James.
The Brawlers just signed him and I almost passed out with excitement over the unexpected news.
I won’t lie–I want him. (Yes, that way.) Bad.
Fat chance of that happening
Even if I weren’t so self conscious, I’m not in his league. He dates starlets and models and was last seen with a princess on his arm…
Why did I sign a deal with the Boston Brawlers?
I was a f**ing NHL super star in L.A.. My life was perfectly scripted with fame, fortune and all kinds of women throwing themselves at me.
But a hushed up incident with a certain princess caused me to miss seeing my dad on his death bed. Now my family is pissed at me. And I need to deal with them–and the loss of my dad.
So I signed with the Brawlers, moved from L.A. to come back east and return to my roots.
Between hockey and dealing with the need to square things with my family and get real about relationships, I have plenty to concentrate on.
So why do I find Sara, the awkward little puck bunny and big f-ing distraction, so irresistible?
Why do I let Sara Bellagamba of all people, sidetrack me from what’s most important in my life, family and hockey?
The Puck Bunny, a Boston Brawlers Hockey Spin-off, is the first in the Some Girls Like It Cold Series, a funny and poignant romp where the awkward girl gets her dream guy against all the odds, scoring big for her team which includes every secret Puck Bunny everywhere. And the dream guy gets the deeply satisfying life with the dream girl he never knew he desperately wanted. HEA Ending! (duh!)
(Warning: language and sex for a mature audience.)
*********Early Bird Bonus!*********
When you buy it or read on Kindle Unlimited, you get a link to a FREE BONUS BOOK, Hockey Heartthrob by Kat Obie.
You need to get the book by 3/31, because after that, the bonus disappears.
In the meantime, check out the blurb for Hockey Heartthrob. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Second chances don’t happen every day. I was too focused on trying to break through with my hockey career to really make a move on Nastia Schmetinova when we were at the U together. Imagine my surprise when I learned that she was going to ref our Saint Patrick’s Day game.
I couldn’t make the same mistake twice. I had to give it a shot.
Hopefully I didn’t wait too long to make a move and I won’t sacrifice team unity by following my heart. But I can’t ignore my feelings for her.
Hockey Heartthrob is a second chance romance filled with sexy hockey players who give it their all when it comes to romance. Grab the fifth novella in the Loving the Puckers Series which makes you go “Awww.”
