HOT ON ICE: Good Reads, Great Cause
By Kate Meader
Men and women in uniform have always been popular in romance because they’re real-life heroes. In my Hot in Chicago firefighter series, several of the heroes are former military, now back in civilian life and looking to give back. Luke and Wyatt, the eldest Dempseys are former Marines who follow their foster father into the Chicago Fire Department. Eli Cooper, Chicago’s hot and handsome mayor also served and his wartime exploits in saving his fellow soldiers—including his best friend Brady Smith—are gold for his political career. But it’s Brady who is the most wounded of all the Hot in Chicago heroes. Scarred, both inside and out, he struggles with guilt and feelings of worthlessness tracing back to his time in captivity. It takes a matchmaking encounter by his friend, Chicago’s mayor, to kick start his sex life and put him on the road to healing and love.
For this awesome anthology, we considered several worthy charities, but as soon as someone suggested Home for the Troops, we all agreed it was the one. This amazing organization raises funds to build mortgage-free, specially-adapted homes for injured Vets. All their donations come from private individuals and corporations—no federal or state funding is available. So when you read Hot on Ice: A Hockey Romance Anthology, not only are you getting 18 steamy romances for only $2.99, but you can be assured that a portion of the sales proceeds will benefit this amazing cause.
As for my contribution? Romance readers love a man in uniform—military, firefighters, and athletes. Ford Callaghan, the hero of my story in the anthology, IN SKATES TROUBLE, wears the Ragin’ Cajuns jersey with pride but a clash with the Cajuns’ general manager over the heroine puts his spot on the team at risk. A sexy, forbidden romance, and all for a good cause—what more could you ask for?

The New Orleans Cajun Rage professional hockey team just won the Cup. No one thought they’d do it. They were a team of shoulda beens, never coulda beens and a star or two. They’d only been in the Crescent City for three years before this year’s Cinderella run that had them skating off the ice with the championship. Over the following summer, each player gets to keep the Cup for a day. Nobody knows why, but whoever has the Cup falls in love. USA Today bestsellers Robin Covington, Desiree Holt, Kimberly Kincaid, Nana Malone, and Virginia Nelson, Publisher’s Weekly bestseller Angi Morgan, along with Xio Axelrod, Christi Barth, Andie J. Christopher, Avery Flynn, Kim Golden, Lena Hart, Robin Kaye, Katie Kenyhercz, Heather Long, Kate Meader, Susan Scott Shelley, and Misty D. Waters bring you 18 romances with smoking hot heroes—both on and off the ice.
