What started out as a one-night stand blossomed into a lovely romance between 2 hurt and damaged people. Luca is raising his brother’s children after their parents died and Abby has reinvented herself into a millionaire after the worst day of her life. Your heart will feel so much reading about her past that has shaped the new Abby who doesn’t want a relationship, especially with a hockey player raising 3 kids. Luca is constantly feeling like he can’t handle all the responsibility, whether he’s being a good parent in lieu of his brother and sister-in-law. Brenda’s writing will have you glued to the pages, your mind caught in Abby and Luca’s insecurities and how they overcome them to welcome each other into their busy lives.

"That pretty little mouth deserves a good fucking."

Behind the gorgeous blue eyes and handsome smile is a very red-blooded man with impossible stamina, a big cock and a dirty mouth.

I only have one love now—the home furnishings business I’m building into an empire. Maybe money and success can’t love me back, but they keep what’s left of my heart safe. One-night stands are my way of scratching the occasional itch I get for something more. And no one’s better for that than a sexy as sin hockey player I’ll never see again after one very hot night together.

I used to love two things: hockey and women. But now my nieces and nephew are my top priority, because I’m raising them after tragedy stole their parents. Somehow I balance single parenthood and my career as a forward for the Chicago Blaze. There’s no time for women, until I get knocked on my ass by Abby Daniels. She’s everything I’ve ever wanted, but her devastating past may end us before we even get started.

Author Bio:

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
