Single hockey dad meets virgin nanny…can she crack the ice around his heart?
Defending Dani by Kat Mizera is AVAILABLE NOW!
Professional hockey player Sergei Petrov has had a rough time after the tragic loss of his wife. Playing hockey and taking care of his son are all he has time for, all he wants. Getting traded was not on the agenda. Neither was a sexy, hockey-playing nanny to further complicate things.
Star college athlete Danielle Cloutier may dominate the rink, but off the ice, she’s an amateur. She has been trying to get rid of her virginity for years, but guys are always intimated by her strength. That’s about to change when she meets her new boss.
Chemistry between them sizzles, hot enough to melt the most frozen of hearts, but Danielle can’t afford to get attached. Not when she’ll be leaving soon.
Sergei doesn’t know what to do with the sexy, stubborn woman, but watching her turn his new house a home makes him wonder if she’s exactly what he needs. Can he come to terms with his feelings before she skates out of his life for good?
About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
Sergei and Dani are everything I wanted them to be and more. Sergei is strong, dominate, and has so much love for his son. He’s lost in that place where hurt and reality both suck and makes you wonder how much more you can take. I love Sergei. I love how powerful and strong his character is. He’s fierce, loyal, and wants to give his heart to someone again.
Dani…this girl has bigger balls than any man I have ever met. She’s torn between doing what she loves and doing what she needs to do. She is strong and loves hard. She wants to give her heart to the right man, but is Sergei that man? I love everything about this girl.
This story is sweet, funny, and heartbreaking. I loved every second of this book and I know you will too. I’ve become a huge fan of Kat Mizera. Her books suck you in and make you want more. She’s a great author and one I always look forward to reading.
