Everyone needs rules to live by, but are they worth giving up your one shot at love?

Luc didn’t mean to fall for his teammate’s little sister. He had no intention of breaking the guy code: sisters were strictly off limits. Luc knew that breaking the rule could not only destroy a friendship but derail his career. And he didn’t think her brother was bluffing.

As soon as Luc found out the gorgeous brunette he’d been eyeing turned out to be his goalie’s sister, he hit the brakes. But then she said those four little words: I don’t date athletes.

Challenge accepted.

Now Luc couldn’t get Kassie out of his mind. She was turning his world upside down. This girl was the Juliet to his Romeo, the jelly to his peanut butter, the queen to his king.

But how could he prove to her that his reputation was a thing of the past? He was ready to do anything in his power to change her mind. He only hoped her brother didn’t kill him in the process.

See why everyone is talking about Shot at Love! Luc and Kassie are hot!

  • If you know me you know I love Pittsburgh and hockey. This author combines both for me in every book! This is book 8 in the series and it is the best one thus far in my opinion. Although I will always be partial to the very first book. Luc and Kassie just have this connection that jumps out at you from the pages. You can only hope to root for them when the truth comes out. But Luc isn’t willing to give up.
    I love that we get caught up on all the previous characters too. I cannot wait for the next book!
  • His teammates little sister. The stunning girl who captured his attention standing there is not available to him . She is his teammates sister the “bro code ” forbids him from dating her. He can’t stop his fascination with her .This is a can’t put down kind of read great characters ,hot love story.”
  • I LOVED Luc and Kassie. When the lightening bolt hit Luc straight in the …. Well maybe, not the heart, but darn close. Only to find out Kassie was his team mates sister….
    Kassie has NO intention of ever again dating an athlete, been there, done that, and will NEVER, EVER do it again. At least that is what she is telling herself until she gets to know Luc.
    I really loved watching these two fall for each other. Who am I kidding, I really enjoy a great hockey romance, and Shot at Love is an excellent hockey romance.
    All the characters in this series are very well written, and most definitely people you would like to meet and become friends with. They are so “real”. I love the way everyone sticks together.
    Thank you Melody Heck Gatto for sharing your phenomenal talents with your readers, and for writing this phenomenal series!

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.
