Sam Morris, the “surfer-boy” star of the Renegades, has hockey running through his veins. He lives and breathes the game. The only thing he’s crazier about is his family. Trina’s love saved him from himself after a season of losing and injuries. She was his life, his partner in crime, and his biggest fan. Adding their daughter to the mix gave him the perfect hat-trick in life. Hockey, love, and a family.
Trina Kidd Morris, sister of Renegades captain, Tyler Kidd, grew up in the world of hockey and knows how the players are wired. She understands the level of dedication the men put into the game. Her husband, Sam, applied the same single-minded devotion to bring her back to life after her devastating loss. He’s her hero, her love, and her best friend.
Sam and Trina are a match made in heaven. The love of a lifetime. Beautiful and blond, with a little mini-me, they are the picture-perfect family.
That is, until Sam is blindsided by a hit. When the ice cracks around him, his career is threatened. The lines become blurred between good choices and bad, and his fairytale marriage is on the line.
Trina pledged her commitment to Sam, but how can she remain at his side, when words cut deep and she’s forced to protect her family?
And after losing so much, can Sam win the fight for his family before his entire world falls apart?

I was born and raised in the Steel City, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Steelers, and Pirates. We are famous for Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Pierogis, saying “yinz”, and sandwiches with coleslaw and French fries on them (just to name a few). I live with my husband, teen son and fur babies.
We are huge hockey fans and adore our home team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. During the hockey season, our lives revolve around the game schedule.
I love hockey and I love romance novels, I didn’t even know there was a whole genre of books out there when I started writing my first novel. I love making the game part of the overall story (I love the whole experience of being at an NHL game, the noise, the food, the sound of the skates on the ice.) So expect the game to be part of my books. I spend time during the season at Penguins practices watching how they interact, talk, and work on the ice, to make my scenes as real to life as possible. My hope is even if you’ve never set foot into a hockey rink, you will feel as if you had while reading my books.
My characters aren’t always rough and gruff, because not all hockey players are goons. I’ve had the chance to meet a few and they are awesome and down to Earth guys. So, I like to show a gentle and caring side along with the rough and tough.
I am a Hallmark movie junkie. I adore the Christmas movies and all the cutesy (and sometimes cliché) romance, and I love to get swept away in it all. I also will binge watch my favorite tv shows BONES, FRIENDS, LAST MAN STANDING, SUPERNATURAL, and CHICAGO PD.
