NORTHWEST ICE ROMANCE SERIES
A sweet & swoony, slightly sporty, Christian contemporary romance series, set in the northwestern cities of the NHL, that continues the legacy of the Original Six
Meet the men who play pro hockey in the northwestern states and provinces of North America - and the women who turn their heads and show there is more to life than just sports. This series of stories set in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Seattle, Winnipeg, Minnesota and San Jose can be read as standalone novels, and sees the return of some of your favorite characters from the Original Six, another sweet and swoony, slightly sporty, Christian contemporary romance series, perfect for fans of Becky Wade, Courtney Walsh, and Susan May Warren.
You don't have to love hockey to love these books, as readers tell me they're captivated by the heroes, the depth, and the swoon-worthy kisses. So if you enjoy stories of family, faith, friendship and love then I hope you'll check them out.

"A delightful, laugh out loud romance" ~ Susan May Warren, bestselling author
Hannah Wade's heart might've once been touched by a rancher's son, but her real passion has always been sports. Years later, when her sports career is cut short by injury and an opportunity arises to be one of Calgary's first female sports analysts, she jumps at the chance. Trouble is, some of the old dinosaurs she works with think she's only there to look good, add ratings, and stir controversy among the fiercely loyal hockey fans. She longs for the chance to prove herself, so when an opportunity comes along to interview newly traded defenseman Franklin James, she meets him. Or, more accurately, re-meets him. With disastrous effect.
Growing up with three sisters means Franklin thought he knew something about women, but nothing had ever prepared him for the sparkling firecracker that is Hannah. And yet her vibrant personality holds a sweetness and soft side, something that draws his interest and protectiveness when an interview goes south. And there's something about her that's vaguely familiar...
Can these two overcome prejudice and find a way forward? And what has faith - or the lack of - got to do with anything?
