What a difference a year makes. Twelve months ago, Victor Kalinski was one of the best and most controversial ice hockey players in the pros. This year he’s playing in the minors, has a paternity case pending, and has just been vindictively outed to the world by one of his own teammates.
But he seems to find life in the tiny town of Cayuga to his liking. A large part of that is Dan Arou, the Cougars’ alternate captain and the man who now holds Victor’s heart. Surely venomous, viper-tongued Victor hasn’t been mellowed by love!
Well, perhaps a little. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t intend to get sweet revenge on those who’ve hurt the man he loves and the friends he’s somehow made along the way.
An adult gay romance from Ellora’s Cave

“You suck,” I sighed, tossed the defunct phone to the passenger seat and cranked the Jeep over. The ride home broke several speed limits. There might also have been a couple of stop signs that got no stoppage. The Jeep skidded into place next to my Escalade. I climbed the steps two at a time. Dan was in the kitchen doing something with chicken breasts when I blew into the room. He looked up from dinner.
“Oh shit,” he whispered when he saw me. I went to him and pulled him in to my chest. “I need to wash my hands. They’re covered with raw chicken.”
“I need you more,” I coughed, then pushed my face into his hair.
He gave up and placed his bloody hands to my back. Dan knew. He knew not to say anything as I inhaled and exhaled the smell of his shampoo.
“I tried to call you,” he said a moment later. I grunted and tightened my hold. “Heather tried to get in touch with you. The results from the blood test are back.”
“Can we just not talk for another five hours or so? Please, sweets?”
“Sure, yeah, okay.”
Dan rested his head on my shoulder. We stood there, embracing each other, for a good ten minutes. I listened to him breathe. I felt his chest rise and fall. I tasted the man’s scent on my tongue, and I dug my fingertips into his shoulder blades, just in case he thought of maybe moving.
“I love you,” I said as his hair fluttered over my lips. “Did she tell you the results?”
“She said to call her. I didn’t ask. Is your phone dead again?”
“Yeah, yeah, it is. I love you. Can you tell me that you love me too?”
“You know I do, babe.” He turned his head to press a kiss to my throat. “You going to call her now?”
