Martin's latest hockey romance is no exception to the game plan. Each story is hot and romantic, with characters who are not entirely likable but tend to have good hearts. Eric and Monica are especially easy to dislike, but their growth over the course of the story makes this a title worth checking out.

All of America is buzzing about Eric and Monica. He's a hot hockey stud with a giant ego. She's a soap-opera megastar who's worried she might be losing her fan base to a younger co-star. So their publicity agents stew up a scheme to make everyone think these two are hot and heavy when they really can't stand each other.

But what begins as a publicity stunt becomes a connection that is much more real, and frightening, as Eric and Monica challenge each other to perform to the best of their abilities. But can a fake relationship have a real future? (BERKLEY SENSATION, Oct., 304 pp., $7.99)
