Good Reads for a Good Cause
By Susan Scott Shelley
When you think about real-life heroes, who comes to mind? For me, it’s always the men and women in our military. For all they’ve done for us, supporting causes that will help them is the best way to say thank you. (Of course, saying the words is a wonderful thing to do, too.) That’s why I’m so happy that twenty-percent of the royalties earned from the Hot on Ice: A Hockey Romance Anthology will go to Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that builds mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured Veterans. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury. These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
In my Holiday Hearts series, I write about former-military buddies who help each other navigate life and love. Like me, those guys love hockey, and so I was excited to introduce their hometown pro-hockey team in my anthology story Making His Move, which features the Cajun Rage’s back-up goaltender Rod Fraser. Now a free agent, he’s hoping for a starting job with another team. He returns home to Holiday, NY to wait for news and to bring the Cup to his hometown. When he sees his best friend’s sister, who he’s had a thing for forever, and who is now single, everything changes. But Arielle Charton thinks Rod’s interest is fleeting, and she doesn’t need the distraction, not when she’s focused on rebuilding her life. Rod’s made his living making impossible saves, but it will take the impossible to convince the shy artist that she’s captured his heart.

About Hot on Ice: A Hockey Romance Anthology…
The New Orleans Cajun Rage professional hockey team just won the Cup. No one thought they’d do it. They were a team of shoulda beens, never coulda beens and a star or two. They’d only been in the Crescent City for three years before this year’s Cinderella run that had them skating off the ice with the championship. Over the following summer, each player gets to keep the Cup for a day. Nobody knows why, but whoever has the Cup falls in love. USA Today bestsellers Robin Covington, Desiree Holt, Kimberly Kincaid, Nana Malone, and Virginia Nelson, Publisher’s Weekly bestseller Angi Morgan, along with Xio Axelrod, Christi Barth, Andie J. Christopher, Avery Flynn, Kim Golden, Lena Hart, Robin Kaye, Katie Kenyhercz, Heather Long, Kate Meader, Susan Scott Shelley, and Misty D. Waters bring you 18 romances with smoking hot heroes—both on and off the ice.
