Leftwinger Anders Sorenson’s life-long focus on hockey came with a price—a price he never minded paying until reaching a crossroads in his career and meeting Dahlia Clarno. The eccentric bartender is hot, she doesn’t care about his fame, and she has no idea about the bounty his teammates have on his virginity. She’s the total package for a vacation fling.
Dahlia has no use for a man right now. She needs to be focused on paying off her failed business debts and getting out of her hometown (for good this time), not mooning over a six-four hunk of Viking-sex. When Dahlia finds out about the bet, it strengthens her resolve to stay far away from Anders. But his earnest smile and surprising smolder are hell on her resistance.
Anders wants to turn over his v-card to Dahlia, and he thinks he can trust her. Dahlia knows about the bounty, and the feelings she’s developing for Anders would make it wrong for her to cash in. Besides, it’s not like this vacation fling could ever turn into something more. . .
