Shannon Mackenna’s life revolves around her family, with her four-year-old daughter at the center. She knows firsthand how life can change in an instant. Her parents’ unexpected death taught her never to take things for granted.
She lives with no regrets—not even the one-night-stand with a minor league hockey player that resulted in a surprise pregnancy. When she tried to contact him, he denied even recognizing her, and Shannon vowed to raise her daughter on her own.
Cliff “Cam” Camden embraced the bad-boy-athlete persona the moment he was drafted. He enjoyed all of the perks and has long stopped counting notches on his hockey stick.
Now, Cam wants more than off-ice conquests. It’s time to put his career first. He’s not looking for distractions—until he meets the beautiful, sassy owner of Shamrock Fitness. Intrigued by the elusive, private woman, Cam hopes for the chance of something more.
Shannon fears her past has collided with her carefully scripted life. Still, she finds it difficult to resist Cam’s devilish smile and brilliant silver-blue eyes. His thoughtfulness outshines his obvious sex appeal, and every time she sees him, her heart skips a beat—and not just because of the way his touch lights up her whole body.
Neither denies the mutual attraction, but Shannon must protect her secret at all costs—even if it means walking away from her happily ever after.
