Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more.
Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion.
|Duncan and Amber meet at a bar where she is a waitress, and there is an almost immediate attraction but when Amber finds out the Duncan is a professional hockey player she does everything in her power to ovoid him. Duncan thinks Amber is the breath of fresh air he needs, for he is tired of models and gold diggers. What he can’t figure out is why Amber is so against them when he thinks they are a perfect match. What he does not know is that she is the daughter of an ex big time pro football quarterback who cheating, doing drugs, and who knows what else because he ended up in prison.
