Fair Play by Deidre Martin
Book Two in the New York Blades series

A little competition never hurt anybody...

Theresa Falconetti has it all: brains, beauty, a quick wit, and her own PR business. To the Deep disappointment of her large family, she never dates Italians, men from her old Brooklyn neighbourhood, or professional athletes. Especially not athletes...

Michael Dante, popular hometown hero and winger for the Stanley Cup champion New York Blades is all three—and he is head over heels for her.

For Michael, Theresa's NO HOCKEY PLAYERS rule is a check to the heart. Nothing he does seems to melt her resolve. His stubborn refusal to give up on this wisecracking brunette, who—he knows—is hiding from her roots, is driving them both nuts. And when he hires her to publicise his family's restaurant, more than the kitchen heats up. Then Theresa finds herself an Upper East Side kind of guy and Micheal is forced to take his game to the next level.
"Careful. Your roots are showing, and I’m not referring to your hair."

Theresa’s eyes narrowed. "What?"

"Your Brooklyn accent," Michael murmured affectionately. "It was there in full force just a moment ago. As for BTS," he added with a devilish grin, "are you sure about that?"

Theresa’s expression darkened. "Zoccolo! Come sei sciocco," she snarled at him.

Michael’s heart swelled. She’d called him a tasteless clod In Italian! God, he adored her.

Chasing Stanley  by Deidre Martin
Book Six in the New York Blades series

Jason Mitchell has landed his dream job--on the New York Blades hockey team. He is young, rich, and thrilled to be in the Big Apple. He has just one small problem, his dog, a large Newfoundland named Stanley who is used to large open spaces, not cramped city sidewalks. Fortunately, Jason meets Delilah Gould, dog walker, boarder, and trainer extraordinaire. Delilah knows all about dogs and can discuss their care and management with ease. Ask her to speak about anything else in front of more than one person, however, and she has serious social problems. Her parents' constant fighting taught her to fade into the woodwork, so when Jason shows interest in her, she is out of her league. In fact, Jason and Delilah are almost polar opposites, and their differences threaten to be almost insurmountable. But Martin has a way of bringing her dissimilar characters together that rings true, and fans and curious new readers won't want to miss her latest hockey-themed romance.

He turned back to Delilah. "I know, I know: he needs to be trained. When can you start?"

"When can you start?"

Jason looked confused. "Can't I just drop him at your place and pick him up when the lesson's over?"

"No. His success depends on your cooperation and dedication. You need to observe what I'm doing and practise with him between lessons."

"You're pulling my leg, right?"

Delilah was silent.

"Guess not." Jason rubbed his chin thoughtfully. "Okay, look. How about I look at my schedule and give you a call, and we can figure out a time and place for our first lesson."

"I need to interview you first."

Jason blinked. "Huh?"

"I don't take on just anybody. I like to get a sense of the dogs and their owners first, see how they interact."

"You've seen how we interact! I beg Stanley to do something, Stanley ignores me, and if I'm lucky, he gets bored and eventually obeys!"
