From the Author

The Rookie Rebels feature "rookie" heroes but not in the way you might expect. No green, fresh-out-of-college man babies here! These guys have had their NHL careers put on hold for a reason, such as military service, injury, or unspeakable tragedy. Their second acts and roads to redemption will be with everyone's favorite hockey team, the Chicago Rebels! 

Foreplayer, the next Rookie Rebels book features Vadim Petrov's sister, Mia Wallace, first introduced in Vadim and Isobel's book, So Over You. She's all grown up and ready to play ...And I think you'll love Boston-born Cal, the mouthy Southie with a heart of gold and plenty of tips for how Mia can win ... another guy. Uh oh! I love the brother's best friend trope, especially when combined with a sprinkling of "lessons in seduction," but this book also has a healthy dose of friends-to-lovers. Mia and Cal have a rocky start but soon develop a friendship that gives this story its heart. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Each book in the 
Rookie Rebels series is completely standalone and won't require that you've read the original Rookie Rebels or Chicago Rebels stories. But if you've missed them, you may as well catch up because there'll be plenty of cameos from the OG crew!

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Originally from Ireland, USA Today bestselling author Kate Meader cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Harlequins thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron, a fire hose, or a hockey stick, and she’s there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with big-hearted guys and strong heroines - and heroes - who can match their men quip for quip..
