He carries a big stick. And he's not afraid to use it.
On the ice, I'm Kellan Carter, powerhouse enforcer for the Charlotte Strikers. Off the ice, I'm just a regular guy. The last thing I want is to get mobbed by a bunch of groupies who are only after me for my fame and money. My ideal woman knows how to enjoy a little good, clean fun—and maybe some not-so-clean fun too. That's the kind of girl I'd never let go.
When Kristen Robinson, the gorgeous, down-to-earth bartender I've been crushing on, agrees to let me take her out, I'm thrilled. We have an amazing night together, culminating in the most electrifying kiss of my life—and that's it. Kristen tells me we can't see each other again, but I know that kiss meant as much to her as it did to me. What I don't know is that Kristen has a dangerous secret...?
I've proved to Kristen that she can trust me with her body and her heart. But when her past comes back to haunt her, I need to prove that she can trust me with her life. And I might have to get my hands dirty after all.
