Body Check


Body Check

(Book #4 of Nashville Sound)
Baby makes three—and trouble!—for a veteran hockey player and the team owner’s daughter in this satisfying conclusion to the Nashville Sound series.

Nashville Sound’s enforcer Lars “Thor” Eastrom is on the wrong side of thirty-five, broken down, and scarred—both physically and emotionally. He figures he’s got one more year in the sport, and he wants to make it count. But he absolutely has to stay on the owner’s good side to get ice time, and their relationship is rocky at best.

Two years ago, he and the boss’s daughter, aspiring country star Tradd Davenport, shared a steamy weekend tryst. Now Tradd is back in town to sing the national anthem at her father’s hockey game and hopefully reignite her career. With one look at Tradd’s blond, blue-eyed, and very Swedish-looking little boy, Thor knows the child is his.

As the two try to co-parent their child while keeping his paternity a secret from her father, old feelings spark back to life. But balancing two careers and parenthood proves to be as perilous as a broken skate on slick ice.
