(Arizona Vengeance, Book #11)
Release Date: October 26, 2021
Known as the team loner, Riggs Nadeau gives his all on the ice, but nothing extra off it. A beautiful stranger is about to cause chaos in his very structured world.
As a professional hockey player, people think I live a charmed life. On the surface, I do. But they don’t know the horrors of my childhood, or the real reason that I have custody of my seventeen - year - old sister, Janelle. And that’s exactly the way I like it. They may think I’m a prick because I don’t like to share, but that’s fine. They don’t know me, and they don’t need to.
In an effort to help Janelle get settled in Phoenix and stay out of trouble at school, I set her up with a job at Clarke’s Corner, the local bookstore owned by the girlfriend of a teammate. It’s there that she makes friends with Veronica Woodley, the extremely annoying, arrogant, money - hungry divorcee who I don’t want anywhere near my sister. Janelle insists I’m completely wrong about Veronica, but I refuse to accept that. I have to keep reminding mysel f that that the gorgeous blond with legs for days is off limits.
Through a series of events, I start to see Veronica for what she really is — an amazing woman who has survived her own hell to come out even stronger. I have to admit, we’re more alik e than not and the attraction between us burns hot.
Maybe I was all wrong about my ability to love and commit, but when the past comes back to haunt me, can I be the man that Veronica, and Janelle, deserve?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is book #11 in the Arizona Vengeance series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.
Riggs is just trying to right by his kid sister. The situation is rocky, as she is adjusting to living with him and a new location. Only with his career, he is not often home. Add to this his burning attraction to the woman so generous with her time and he is slowly going crazy.
Veronica has enjoyed training the new hire to work at her best friend's bookstore. What she did not count on was being attracted to her older brother. He is such a typical hot jock. Well a hot jock who sets her on fire.
This story was such a delight to read. While I absorbed the book almost whole, I found the characters were exciting and had so much depth to them. The pace moved along well, and the heat between the main characters was off the charts. This is a great addition to the series. Cannot wait for the next installment to come out!
