Waking the Lion
Even colder heart…
There’s an instant quick blast of energy when we’re anywhere near. I feel him radiate through me like fire and ice. He’s so far away, yet so damn close.
He’s the first man I can’t look away from. The only man I’ll take any way … on any terms.
Captain for the Dallas Blue Hawks, Rhett Gentry is unfriendly. Hard. Indifferent. Cold as a bitter wind in the Rocky Mountains. He’s loved hard. Given his everything. Lesson learned … never risk another broken heart.
Days are all the same for Rhett. Work … Promises… Obligations…
It is what it is.

He keeps appearing out of nowhere. He knows I’m interested. I can’t hide the fact. Yet, a man like Rhett is used to women looking his way. Used to turning a blind eye.
Until he doesn’t.
“I want your trust,” he demands, his stare heavy.
I laugh under my breath at the irony of that statement. Players … Users … They can’t be tamed for anything permanent.
Rhett Gentry is the kind of beauty that has women chasing the puck to be near him. Giggling like teenagers for a simple smile or autograph. Tall, dark and handsome, the famous hockey player is hiding a secret. But I fall anyway. Our chemistry is undeniable. Unmistakable. But as much as my heart longs for his, I fear his past may very well prevent our future. My heart keeps telling me there’s only one true love in Rhett’s life.
And it isn’t me…
