Holding on to a past love and missing her Grandfather was making the holidays harder than Rylee had expected. From Saint Nick to reindeer and jingle bells, Rylee’s story is one magical tale. The enchanted spirit of Christmas plays a part in helping her find what she needs to finally move on.
Nick is the General Manager of the Renegades. He’s tall, dark and handsome. His looks were not lost on Rylee and his impeccable manners intrigued her.
Nick was a businessman with no time for fun, until he has an interesting run in with Rylee. This girl had him thinking outside the box for the first time in his life. And the way she effortlessly fit into his life had him wondering if she was meant to be there.
The holiday season had her wondering if what she thought was an accidental meeting wasn’t really a gift from Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick?
I was born and raised in the Steel City, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Steelers, and Pirates. We are famous for Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Pierogis, saying “yinz”, and sandwiches with coleslaw and French fries on them (just to name a few). I live with my husband, teen son and fur babies.
We are huge hockey fans and adore our home team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. During the hockey season, our lives revolve around the game schedule.
I decided one day I wanted to write a fan fiction short story about my favorite hockey player. Eventually, I no longer had a fan fiction, I had a full-length story. Sure the idea got changed around a few times, and names got changed to protect the innocent…lol. And that’s where I started. I wrote one and the rest just followed.
I love hockey and I love romance novels, I didn’t even know there was a whole genre of books out there when I started writing my first novel. I love making the game part of the overall story (I love the whole experience of being at an NHL game, the noise, the food, the sound of the skates on the ice.) So expect the game to be part of my books. I spend time during the season at Penguins practices watching how they interact, talk, and work on the ice, to make my scenes as real to life as possible. My hope is even if you’ve never set foot into a hockey rink, you will feel as if you had while reading my books.
My characters aren’t always rough and gruff, because not all hockey players are goons. I’ve had the chance to meet a few and they are awesome guys. So, I like to show a gentle and caring side along with the rough and tough.
I am a Hallmark movie junkie. I adore the Christmas movies and all the cutesy (and sometimes cliché) romance, and I love to get swept away in it all. I also love to binge watch my favorite tv shows BONES, SUPERNATURAL, NCIS, and CHICAGO PD.
