With: Kate Willoughby
What do you want to be when you grow up? Some people know the answer to that question like its engraved on their bones. Some struggle before finding the answer. Some never find out and languish in careers that are just the means to a paycheck.
Becca Chen, the heroine of my latest hockey romance, Across the Line, is one of the lucky ones who knew what she wanted to do, but she still struggled because her parents were adamant that she become a doctor, like the rest of her family. Cooking was not an auspicious profession.
Calder Griffin, the hero, also knew from the time he was a boy that he wanted to play professional hockey, perhaps because his dad dreamed of his sons playing for the National Hockey League and even named them after NHL trophies. But unlike Becca, Calder wanted to play hockey. He ate, breathed, and slept hockey. Lucky for him, he had the talent and the drive to make it big.
Across the Line (In the Zone book 2)
by Kate Willoughby
Calder Griffin needs to get back in shape. Sidelined last season by a knee injury, he's determined to return to the San Diego Barracudas and play the best hockey of his career. This might even be the year he gets out of his talented older brother's shadow.
For months, Becca Chen has poured her energy into Cups, the restaurant she owns, desperate to prove to her parents that she can succeed in the career of her choice, not theirs. But after she spends a five-hour plane ride flirting with charming, magic-on-the-ice Calder, she tells herself she needs a fling.
Becca and Calder can't keep their hands off each other, but they know the relationship can't last. They live on opposite coasts, and they're both too devoted to their careers. All they have to do is prevent their feelings from crossing the line from lust to love...
