Here is a great story that features many familiar faces and a romance that takes a different look at the traditional roles of men and women, as well as the unfair and different standards expected of women from men that still exist in the business world. The main characters’ developing relationship and the hero’s willingness to do his part to make it work is a pleasure to experience.

Sinead O’Brien is a workaholic lawyer and the daughter of the owners of the Wild Hart pub. She’s hired to defend Blades defense man Adam Perry against an accusation of assault after a borderline hit on another player. Though her first impression of Adam is that he’s a bonehead, she soon realizes he is just a man of few words and quite private. He’s also egotistical, guarded, physical and very attractive, especially to her. When their relationship takes a personal turn, Adam can’t understand Sinead’s insistence on keeping it secret. It’s a misunderstanding that could spell the end of a promising romance. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Feb., 368 pp., $7.99)
