It's beginning to look a lot like love . . .

As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Deputy Jill Flaherty decides it's time to live a little. When she walks into Sawyer Anderson's bar in her sexiest dress, she's not thinking that he's her brother's best friend or about the many women he dated during his years as a pro hockey player. All she's thinking is that it's finally time to confess to her longtime crush how she truly feels.

Sawyer is done being a player on and off the ice. Yet no one in the small town of Christmas seems to believe he's ready to settle down, not Jill, and certainly not Jack, who is determined to keep Sawyer from breaking his little sister's heart. But as Sawyer and Jill's relationship heats up, can he prove that he's her happy ever after?

Sawyer waited on the sidewalk outside the Penalty Box for Jill. "Why didn't you stick around for the cup presentation?" he teased, holding up the trophy as she approached wearing a white shirt, jeans, and white sneakers.
            Her dark, shiny hair swung across her shoulders as she gave her head an annoyed shake. Her full pink lips flattened when she reached his side. "You may not have noticed, but my team wasn't exactly impressed that I lost the game for us."
            "Come on, you guys didn't stand a chance. We win every year. But just for curiosity sake, why did you take out Brad? Did he tick you off?" As Sawyer well knew, it didn't take much to tick her off. She had her brother's temper. Only Jack's twelve-year stint in the military had taught him to control his.
            She shoved her sunglasses on top of her head. "No, he didn't tick me off. He wanted to win, and he was going to take you out to do it."
            "Wait a sec, are you telling me that you blew the game to protect me?"
            Color stained her blade-sharp cheekbones. "What was I supposed to do? Do you want to suffer a permanent brain injury? Because that's what could happen if you take another blow to your fat head." She crossed her arms and looked away.
            Sawyer would have laughed if not for the pressure building in his chest. It was rare for Jill to let her guard down. Half the time she was either scowling or growling at him. But every once in a while, like now, she'd show him how much she cared. "I appreciate you trying to protect me, Shortstop. But I can take a hit, you know? It would take someone a lot bigger and badder than Brad to take me down."
             She lifted her chin. "All it takes is one time. You shouldn't be playing hockey, even if it is recreational."
            "Appreciate the concern, but we have a no-body-contact rule." He frowned, noticing a scrape on her chin and raised it with his knuckle. "You have a bruise. Did you hit the ice when you fell on top of Brad?"
            She batted his hand a way. "I'm fine. It's not a big deal."
            He slid his hand from her chin to the nape of her neck, then gently massaged the tight muscles. He caught her wince. "You gave yourself whiplash, didn't you?"
            She shrugged. "I've had worse."
            "Yeah, I know you have." And she never complained. Feeling oddly touched and protective, he lightly squeezed the back of her neck and leaned down to press his lips to the top of her head. "Come on, I'll get you some ice and . . ." He trailed off as he spotted Jack coming down the sidewalk with Grace. His best friend's narrowed gaze moved from Sawyer to Jill.
            Sawyer lowered his hand and stepped back from her. "Hey, guys."
