Overview

A boxed set of three novels and a novella in the Portland Storm hockey romance series by USA Today bestselling author Catherine Gayle.

BREAKAWAY

Portland Storm captain Eric "Zee" Zellinger knows how to get the job done, but leading his once elite team to victory is fast becoming a losing battle. He can't lose focus now--not with his career on the line. But when his best friend's little sister makes him an offer he can't refuse, Eric could lose the drive the team relies on from their captain.

Still in a downward spiral after a life-altering event in college, Dana Campbell is desperate to try anything to break away from the horror of that fateful night--even enlisting the help of the only man she trusts completely.

No matter how irresistible she is or how tempting the offer, Eric might not be able to cross that line--especially with the team's chance at the playoffs on the line. Now, Eric has to take one last shot, but will he choose Dana's Breakaway chance at happiness or the move that could secure his career?

ON THE FLY

Being sidelined for far too long due to injuries, Portland Storm player Brenden "Soupy" Campbell is ready to take his career to the next level and make his new position on the team stick. After he meets the general manager's cute new assistant, Brenden knows he's right where he's supposed to be.

Determined to change things up On the Fly and establish a future for herself and her children, Rachel Shaw jumps at the opportunity to work for the Storm. She's not going to let anything--or anyone--get in her way, especially not a sexy and overly cocky hockey star.

But when Brenden pulls out all the stops and turns on the charm, Rachel refuses to make the same mistake twice. Now, it's up to Brenden to cement his spot--both on the team and in Rachel's heart.

TAKING A SHOT

Rising hockey star Jamie Babcock is ready to take the most important shot of his life--and this time, it's not on the ice. Dating his teammate's daughter might be riskier than going head to head with one of the Portland Storm's rivals. But time is running out--it's now or never.

High school senior Katie Weber knows all too well the woes of adolescence, but throw in a leukemia diagnosis, and her life just got a lot more complicated. With prom looming and a shiny bald head to contend with, Katie might sit at home on the most important night of her potentially very short life. Unless Jamie Babcock, her ultimate crush, finally makes the move she's been praying for. But that's not the only miracle she needs.

Now Jamie must show Katie just how important she is and how hard she must fight.

Before it's too late...

LIGHT THE LAMP

Hockey star Liam Kallen lost his scoring touch when his wife died. Still broken up over her loss, Liam's darkness overpowers him, but his new team--the Portland Storm--needs him. A chance meeting brings him face to face with Noelle Payne, the most positive and upbeat woman he's ever met, and his darkness begins to fade.

There's never been a challenge that Noelle can't conquer. Brightside optimist to a fault, Noelle refuses to succumb to the luxurious life Liam can give her, as she longs to find deeper meaning and purpose in her life. Now it's up to Liam to open up and show her that she's the light he's needed all along--giving her the greatest purpose of all. He might have saved her, but can Noelle be the light that saves him?

Meet the Author

Catherine Gayle is a USA Today bestselling author of Regency-set historical romance and contemporary hockey romance with a New Adult feel. She's a transplanted Texan living in North Carolina with two extremely spoiled felines. In her spare time, she watches way too much hockey and reality TV, plans fun things to do for the Nephew Monster's next visit, and performs experiments in the kitchen which are rarely toxic.

Dear reader,

The books of the Portland Storm series are hockey romances, but they go much deeper than the sport of hockey. These books touch on real-world issues such as rape, cancer, miscarriage, bullying, PTSD, grief, and addiction. If you have triggers, be aware that these books may very well contain material which could trigger you. That said, I endeavor to tackle these issues with sensitivity and compassion.

Additionally, many readers have requested that I put a TISSUE WARNING on the books in this series. I’ve received notes from readers about every single book in the series, in which readers tell me how the characters and the story brought them to tears. You may not need tissues for each book—the story line that resonates most for you may not be the one that others responded to in that way—but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Tough topics were the theme of each book. Really enjoyed reading how author handled them. Loved all characters but Noelle. I thought she was self centered.

This is a great romance set with very likable characters. If you happen to enjoy (or love hockey as I do - go Wings!), this set is for you. I used to write for a hockey magazine so this is very refreshing and realistic. You'll enjoy this and look forward to "The Second Period".
