Veronica Lansden’s model thin body and looks were what people thought she was all about as she traveled the world for her modeling career. In truth, Veronica’s dream was to open a bakery and fill people’s hearts and stomachs full of sugary deliciousness. However, when her life landed her in New York City, it was the last place she wanted to live. She decided to leave the big city and ended up in Boise, Idaho, with her best friend, Sharen Parker. Together they opened their coffee house, Java Love. Everything was finally coming together—except her love life.
Nathan Moore, a professional hockey player, needed a change. He got it from the hockey expansion draft when he was sent to Boise, Idaho. Leaving the bustling and chaotic city of Washington, D.C., which held the memories of gold-digging ex who eventually ended up with his teammate, he knew he needed more out of life. Idaho offered it. Fresh air, room to breathe, and nature as far as the eye could see. But when he ran into local coffee proprietor Veronica, his dreams of a bachelor-life went out the window, and he couldn’t see a future without this woman in it.
Will Nathan be able to slapshot his way into Veronica’s latte world?

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.
