Good Reads for a Good CauseBy Desiree Holt
A home is a home is a home
But not unless you get some help.
Think about this. Men and women go off to fight for our country, to defend us, protect us and keep us as well as our friends safe from the enemy. In the line of duty they are severely injured, enough that their entire life changes. They can no longer do the things they’ve done all their lives. In many cases simple things like walking up and down a flight of stairs or standing in the shower. Sometimes they even have to retrain their brain to send messages to other parts of their body.
Now think of this. They need a home. Many of them have families. Most of them are in no position financially to buy or build the kind of home they need. The mission of Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is to build mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured veterans post-9/11, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
The authors of Hot On Ice: A Hockey romance Anthology, are dedicating a portion of the royalties for this very worthwhile organization. I am very proud to be a part of it.
In my story, Body Check, my hero is also injured, although not that severely. But for him it is life-changing, because it ends his career as a professional hockey player on a championship team. He must come to terms with the fact that all his priorities have changed. And that, most of all. He has to find a way to rebuild relationships with his family, and the woman he walked away from in pursuit of a championship career. And no one is cutting him any slack.

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.
