Lisa LOVES this series!
Lisa: I will urge you all again to click away on Carolina Cold Fury bundle. These guys are hot hot hot. I love this series, its like my happy place between angsty heartbreaker books. A bit like a KA fix…you know you’re going to get the HEA with a few bumps on the way…
…Oh How I love those boys!!!! ALEX! ZACK! So good.
And the author explains:
When 1,001 Dark Nights approached me about writing for them, it didn’t take long for me to decide what I wanted to write. While I absolutely love writing the ARIZONA VENGEANCE series, I was missing the guys from the COLD FURY. There is always something about your first, right?
And while the Cold Fury might not have been the first hockey romance I’ve written, they’re the first team that I formed so they’ll always be special. And I know that as much as I’ve been missing the Cold Fury, YOU, my amazingly awesome readers, are missing them even more.
So I am THRILLED to bring you RAFE, where we get to check in with some of our favorite Cold Fury players. ALEX, GARRETT, ZACK, and more, including GRAY, our favorite team GM!! So buckle up for a sweet, sometimes heartbreaking, SECOND CHANCE romance with RAFE…
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
So… what’s it about?
I was living my dream until one phone call changed everything.
As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thing—helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkable—a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury.
Now I’m home and when I’m not on the ice with my new team, I’m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected.
Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my first… everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesn’t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and I’ve never given up hope that one day we’d be together again.
Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Callie by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and I’m not going to waste the second chance that I’ve been given.
Please note: This novella will be on sale exclusively through Amazon only for the first 90 days. After that, the book will be available at all retailers in all ebook formats. But if you aren’t a Kindle owner and don’t want to wait, you can go to Amazon, download the free Kindle app for your favorite ebook reading device, and read this novella when it releases.
“So, let me get this straight… We’re friends again, and we can have no-strings sex?”
“Friends with benefits,” I reply with a brilliant smile. “It’s a win-win situation for us both.”
Rafe chuckles and shakes his head. He peers down at me, and for a moment, I think he might kiss me. Instead, he pivots to walk back into the kitchen. “You’re a strange one, Calliope Ramirez. I guess it’s why I adore you so much.”
And a fun little introspection by the author herself about what’s to come:
Q: Are there any other genres you’d like to write in in the future?
A: I want to write more general fiction and women’s fiction. My two best works are Atticus and The Hard Truth About Sunshine and I really think that’s my calling. Also… paranormal and fantasy romance, which his my favorite to read.
