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.

RANSOM
USA Today Bestseller Nana Malone
Money, power, prestige...reject. Ransom Cox is --The Player. His whole life, hockey player, Ransom Cox, has watched the people he loves the most reject and leave him. He's learned it's better to be on his own. After the scandal of his wife walking out on him right before the championships, citing his bedroom "over" prowess as the reason, he can't seem to escape the spotlight. The last thing he wants is to be stranded in a cabin with the one girl he's always wanted. The one girl who could destroy him.

“The sexiest thing about Ransom Cox is his ...um...big heart.”






IN SKATES TROUBLE
Kate Meader
Right winger Ford "Killer" Callaghan can't believe he let the anonymous woman who blew his mind slip away into the night. He'll track her down because once could never be enough--even if discovering Addison Williams's identity places her strictly out of bounds. Stolen kisses. Secret hook-ups. Deliciously forbidden in every way. Can a passion that started in the dark find a lifetime of love in the light?

"The sexiest thing about my hero is his tenacity. This guy won't give up--especially when it comes to the out-of-bounds woman he really should be skating away from."





CAGED
USA Today Bestseller Virginia Nelson

The Ragin' Cajuns right winger, Oliver Tremblay, learned that nothing good can stay when he lost his parents on 9/11. Maisie plans to melt the ice king's heart and prove she's just the girl to go skate to skate with him, whether he likes it or not.

The sexiest thing about Oliver Tremblay is his heart of gold... which, coincidentally, is encased in ice.”






MAKING HIS MOVE
Susan Scott Shelley
Backup goaltender Rod Fraser is a free agent in every sense. He's ready for a new team, and hoping for another shot with his best friend's sister. But Arielle Charton thinks Rod's interest is fleeting, and she doesn't need the distraction. She's on a mission to rebuild 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.

"The sexiest thing about my hero is his enthusiasm. Rod works hard and plays even harder. On the ice and off it, he's the one guy who everyone wants to be around."

CHECKING YES
Misty D. Waters
Family secrets drove star left-winger Cooper Banks away from the love of his life, but hot off a championship win he's no longer satisfied with second place. Except the daddy's girl he left behind is now a woman no longer impressed by his charming smile. So when Savannah Jane Scott decides to put Cooper in the penalty box, she aims to keep him there...for good this time.

"With Cooper it's his instinct to protect and support those he loves, even if it means hurting his public image or giving up the things he values most."

PENALTY BOX BLUES
Robin Kaye
Stryker Gyllenhaal, enforcer on the Ragin' Cajun's, knows that once he hits Boise, his time spent in the penalty box is nothing compared to the payback Karma Kincaid has in store for him. When he finds out she has hired a handler, Trish Reynolds, his old college tutor, he's not sure who the real enforcer is. Karma, because she owns him for an entire week, or Trish, the only woman who knows his secret, and can slam his heart against the boards with a sideways glance. He is so pucked.

BEAR NAKED
Katie Kenyhercz
First Nations defenseman Bear Thompson wants to spend his day with the Cup back home on the reserve, but first he has to convince his childhood sweetheart and current band chief Aria Paul to give him another chance and that letting the media in won't be the end of the world. The last thing Aria wants to do is fall back in love with the man who broke her heart and left her in the dust, but old feelings spark new ones, and when Bear sets his sights on a goal, it's only a matter of time.

The sexiest thing about Bear is his dedication to what matters to him.”


DEEP CHECK
USA Today Bestseller Kimberly Kincaid

The problem is, that also means going back to his hometown and seeing January Sinclair, a.k.a., the woman he left behind. Will Finn and January learn to build new trust--or will their ghosts keep them from falling in deep?

"The sexiest thing about my hero is his drive. Finn will do whatever it takes to get what he wants, whether it's the Cup or a shot at proving himself to his heroine, January."



BLOCKED
USA Today Bestseller Heather Long
Archer Durham's career has been defined by his badass attitude both on and off the ice, unfortunately it's biting him in the ass. After one too many unfortunate videos of him turned up on social media, both his fans and the press have turned against him. The win shines spotlight on the whole team and he needs to clean up his act...but what the hell does he know about being a knight in shining armor?

FREE AGENT
USA Today Best Seller Robin Covington
Defenseman James "DC" Washington has had a big year: winning "The Cup" and coming out to his team and the entire world were events that changed his life. Now a free agent, he thought he had his next step all planned out . . . until the man he might not be able to resist puts a sexy offer on the table.

UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN
Kim Golden
Jonas Magnussen's icy blue stare has earned him the nickname the Iceman. On and off the ice, he's cool, collected and hard to handle. When an injury threatens to end his career, Jonas is faced with a choice he thought he'd never have to make. Mariam Kidane is the only woman who ever made Jonas lose his cool. A chance encounter with her melts Jonas's icy facade and leaves him wondering if life away from the league is such a bad thing, especially when it means a second chance at scoring the ultimate goal: love.

"The sexiest thing about Jonas is how cool he usually stays under pressure. His quiet calm masks the intensity of his passion--whether it's for winning a game or winning back the woman he loves. And he never gives up."

THE WARM UP
Xio Axelrod
Subzero. That's what folks around the league call Constantine Zimin, hockey's best defenseman. He's unflappable. Stoic, even. No cracks in all that ice, not until he meets Suji Meriwether. The pediatric nurse has no time for bad-boy jocks who want to use her patients as props. But as soon as they meet, temperatures rise and their defenses fall.

"The sexiest thing about Zim is his focus. On the ice, he is mesmerizing to watch. And when he's off the ice, and he turns all of that focus and intensity on you, it makes you feel like the center of the universe."

CHECK MY HEART
Christi Barth
Kurt Lundquist can't resist the beautiful & compassionate nurse who eased his brother's last days, despite knowing she doesn't want any reminders of her 'death duty'. Lisette does want the hot but oh-so-sad hockey star. Can she lift him out of his grief - and will she want to once she learns his terrible secret?

The sexiest thing about Kurt Lundquist is...well, it has to be a tie between those massively muscled skater's thighs - and his laser beam focus.

FULL CONTACT
Andie J. Christopher
Leftwinger Anders Sorenson has never met the perfect woman before breaking up a fight at Dahlia Clarno's bar. Dahlia's  hot, she doesn't care about his fame, and she has no idea about the bounty his teammates have on his virginity--she's the total package for a vacation fling.

“The sexiest thing about Anders Sorensen is that he's so hard to get.





BLADE
Avery Flynn
Bad girl Gillie Pike has gone straight, but someone with a lot of money wants to bring her out of retirement to steal the Cup and make sure it's found in star goalie Flynn Kazakov's possession. They call him Crazy-kov for a reason and nothing makes him more nuts than his best friend's sexy little sister who swears she's the only one who can keep him out of jail and on the ice.

The sexist thing about Flynn Kazakov from Blade is the drop-dead sexy level of confidence he has. Seriously. I could have gone with his hot bod, or his quick brain, or his smart ass sense of humor but it's his well-earned confidence that melts Gillie's panties.

It was that craving that drew werewolf Jonathan to Nikki. Though he also sought the rogue creatures that threatened the secrecy of his people's existence, his organization sent him to watch her…but he lusted after her, too. When a hunt goes bad and Nikki is infected with the Lycan virus, Jonathan couldn't resist coming to her aid, igniting an insatiable desire between them.

Linda Thomas-Sundstrom is an award-winning author of contemporary and paranormal romance novels and novellas, with books published by Kensington Brava, Amazon Montlake, Harlequin Nocturne, Harlequin Desire, and GothicScapes.

Linda lives in the west, and is a teacher by day and a writer by night. She loves more than anything to write, and hopes you will come along on the wild, wonderful ride with her.



WEREWOLVES, oh my!

Hello, readers, writers, bloggers. Linda Thomas-Sundstrom here with a short post about two new re-issues from my Wolf Moons series novellas that have come out from Nocturne this year. Wolf Bait and Moon Marked.
     You might know by now that I love writing about hunky, sexy, alpha Weres whose intelligence shines through their big blue/green eyes, and who are extraordinarily loyal to a cause of their choice . . . which is usually to protect their species from us regular old human beings finding out about their existence. Of course, some of us are already in on this secret. And some us covet time with these guys. I'm one. Are you?
     Both of these stories are set in Miami - where the sun is hot and the werewolves are hotter. Both stories deal with the kind of woman it will take to corral a sexy Were . . . and the volcanic bliss of two bodies when they meet.
     So if you just are in need of a story that won't take up too much of your time . . .Stories that promise a fast-paced romp through the world of full moons and sexy beasts . .  .I'd love for you to try these. Pretty please.

Here are just a few fun facts from my HISTORY AND LORE OF WEREWOLVES lectures to whet your appetite:

1. Werewolves were first noted in prehistoric times, in cave drawings.
2. The first documented sighting of werewolves was in Ireland in 1180.
3. France seems to have been the heart of European werewolf activity in the 16th and 17th centuries.
4. Certain countries around the world still believe in the existence of Werewolves today? Yep. True. (can we say France?)
5. Most famous werewolf poem: (you might recognize this from the movies) "When the Wolfsbane Blooms."

"Even a man who is pure of heart

And says his prayers at night

Might become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms

and the moon is full and bright."

So.....here I am, digging into this species with my own claws, hoping you'll come along on this wild ride with me and enjoy a novella or two. And if you need longer, meatier fare, try one of my full Wolf tales from Nocturne, the latest of which are: Wolf Born, Wolf Hunter, Seduced by the Moon, and Half Wolf. And stay tuned for Desert Wolf this coming August.


All titles are available at online retail sites and at Harlequin.com, in both ebook and print.
