Yay, I do. Check out my Hot Ice series. 

The first novel Hired was reviewed by Whipped Cream easrlier in the year, here is what they said –

“Ms. Harlem has now given me a newfound appreciation for hockey. Reading this story leaves little doubt that Ms. Harlem is a fan of the sport and now I am too! Readers should expect to be immediately drawn into the story and not allowed to leave until the last page. The dialogue and scenes flowed effortlessly.
Having a major focus on Brooke and Logan allows the reader to really connect and experience everything with them. It made for some intense emotional reading. The intimacy scenes between Brooke and Logan are exquisitely erotic with a dominating edge that will leave the reader breathless after reading each one.
Looking for a fantastic story with sun, sand, surf, and sizzling sex? Look no further! This new series is sure to please.”

And the second book in the series Cross-Checked was reviewed by Whipped Cream just this week

“After reading the first book in the Hot Ice series, I was very unimpressed with Brick's character. His short role in Phoenix and Brooke's story, left me with the feeling that this wouldn't be the last that we see of him and I was anticipating the challenge that his character would no doubt bring in his own story. Therefore, I was completely surprised to see that much of the challenge and frustration didn't so much come from Brick, but from Carly herself. Of course, there are good reasons for her actions and with the story told from Carly's point-of-view, it allows the reader to experience all the surprising layers that make-up Brick.

The stories I've read by Ms. Harlem have always been entertainingly sizzling reads and Cross-Checked is no exception. The sexual tension is thick and the pacing perfectly matched for connections to form with the characters. Ms. Harlem provided a surprising epilogue, which only leaves me wanting more of the Orlando Vipers and what will no doubt be another scorching read with my favorite fictional hockey team.”

The third in the series will be out soon, it’s called Slap Shot and of course features Rick ‘Ramrod’ Lewis,  the captain of The Vipers hockey team. He certainly goes after what he wants!

Hi, Lily.
I still haven't read Cross-checked which I won during the Sizzling Reads contest (I think it was that; I enter so many contests I can't keep count!). Do you recommend reading the first book in the series first or does this stand on its own? I'm usually pretty neurotic about reading books out of order, so I'll probably buy the 1st one anyway, but let me know what you think.

Hello Lily!
I haven't ever watched a hockey game but I do think some of the players are hot. Your hockey series sounds great.

Hockey happens to be my favourite sport to watch and I admit the professional players aren't too bad to watch either. They do make a game more interesting. I can't wait until the NHL season gets back into full swing this Fall. In the meantime it looks like I'm going to have to read about them since I can't watch them.

After those pictures, I may just have to start watching me some hockey! Wowzers!!

HI - thanks for stopping by. I'm pleased you enjoyed the pics :-)

Mara - each one of the hockey books is about a different player so they are stand alone reads, however the other characters you will meet in the stories dip in and out as the timeline moves along. So in answer to your question, no, you don't need to read Hired first, but if you did, you would briefly meet Brick who is the star of the book you won.

Be sure to let me know how you get on.
