Great hockey story and great series

Simmering Ice - Veronica Forand, Susan Scott Shelley

I have been looking forward to this story since I read Flirting on Ice. I love the characters and hope to read more in this series. This story is about Alec. It has been a while since he lost his wife and he is not really looking to settle down. His teammate Zac introduces him to Annie. Their attraction is almost instant, but their insecurities and doubts make them question their feelings. Annie has issues with her mother that make it hard for her to believe someone like Alec could like her the way she is, and it takes a lot to convince her otherwise. I enjoyed their interactions, their easy camaraderie, even their pain as their love grows. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to more from Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley.

I purchased this book directly from the authors.
