Out Tuesday 3rd June!
Madison Duffey would do anything to protect her three-year-old son, Trent, including lying to everyone she loves to hide the identity of Trent’s father. A single mother with no time for anyone but her beloved boy, Madison’s world changes forever the night the men she’s always wanted blow into town and back into her life.
After one too may concussions on the ice put their future at risk, hockey players Riley and Stormy Masters are trying to decide whether to hang up their skates for good. Now they know the woman that has invaded their every dream has kept a very important secret from them. Riley and Stormy must decide if their careers are more important than the woman and child that has suddenly appeared in their lives.
Will Madison be willing share her heart to double her chances for love and have the family she has always wanted?
“Riley, I can explain. Just not here, please,” Madison pleaded as she looked around the room full of her family and friends.
Riley looked to his twin brother, Stormy, nodded, and sighed. “Okay, Madison, but after this party is over, we will talk,” he said before turning on his heel to walk over to the bar to where Tye was standing serving people drinks.
Madison released her breath that she had been holding in ever since she spotted her twin standing in her family’s bar. Shit was going to hit the fan tonight and Madison wasn’t looking forward to the conversation she was going to have in the future with Trent’s fathers.
Over four years ago, Madison had attended one of Tye’s away games, which she had done numerous times before. Tye didn’t like to be alone on these long trips. He had told her on several occasions that he felt homesick and wanted one of his sister’s or his father to join him when he traveled on his away games.
On one particular away game, Madison couldn’t sleep, so she decided to go down to the bar and have a nightcap. After receiving her vodka cranberry, she decided to take her drink and sit in a booth in the back of the bar, where she could enjoy her drink in peace. That’s when she noticed the two handsome men, Riley and Stormy Masters, walk into the bar. She knew who they were since they were her brother’s teammates, but she had never formally been introduced to them.
Every woman in the bar took notice of them, including their loyal fans. After they signed a few autographs, they took their drinks from the bar and turned around, looking for a place to sit. That’s when they both locked eyes on her. Madison felt her skin heat as her clit throbbed by the way their hot molten eyes were boring into hers. They smiled at her and walked toward the table she was seated at in the back and smiled at her as they approached her. These guys were the tallest men she had ever seen. Madison was a tall five-foot-nine woman but even she had to stretch her neck to look at them as they spoke to her.
“Hi,” the one she recognized as Stormy said.
Madison nodded and smiled. “Hello.”
Riley, Stormy’s identical twin asked, “Do you mind if we join you for a drink?”
She waved her arm at the chairs around her, but they both decided to sit in the booth on either side of her.
Riley was the first to address her. “Do I know you from somewhere?”
“Tye Duffey is my little brother.”
“Ahh…I thought I recognized you from somewhere.” Stormy then turned to face her and moved in a little closer. “So where is little brother now? Did you put him to bed with his pacifier?”
Madison snickered. She noticed that he had slid closer so that she could smell the scent of the fresh soap he must have just used. She noticed his black hair was still a little wet. They must have just showered and come down. Stormy had short spiky hair like Riley’s except Stormy’s hair was only spiky in the very front as to where Riley’s was spiky all on the top of his head.
“No, he was tired and wanted to crash early.”
Riley nodded. “Stormy practically dragged me out of bed too. Today’s game wore me out.” He leaned in closer and whispered, “But I sure am glad he talked me into coming down here for a drink. This gives us a chance to get to know you better, Madison.”
Long story short, after a few hours and way too many vodka cranberries Madison ended up going up to their room and having sex with them. The next morning when she woke up in the middle of them, naked, she grabbed her clothes and ran like a scared little rabbit. She knew it was a mistake having sex with them. But it was the best sex she had ever had. They were both so attentive and relentless in bed. She barely had a chance to breathe when they wanted to have sex again. They fucked like bunnies until the sun came up. Riley and Stormy probably had a girl in every town the visited. Madison didn’t want to be one of their groupies.
After that one special encounter with the twins, somehow they got her cell number, most likely from Tye, and tried to contact her by phone messages and even text. By then her period was late and she knew she was going to have their baby. Madison was scared and didn’t know what to do. The twins were just starting out in their careers. For God’s sake, they were only twenty-three to her twenty-eight years. She knew that they wouldn’t be ready to have a baby. She couldn’t bear to abort her baby if they asked her to. After a while the phone calls and text stopped. And Madison’s world of motherhood was about to begin without a father for Trent.
Lana’s voice brought her out of her trance, bringing her back to reality.
“Are you okay?” she asked in a concerned voice as she dragged her back to the kitchen for more privacy.
Madison closed her eyes and looked around to make sure that no one was listening. That’s when Trent came from the back storage room holding a stack of plates and the basket of French bread.
“Mommy, are you okay? You look sick,” the sweet little angel said to her.
Lana was the one to answer him. “Mommy is fine. She just needed to get something back here in the kitchen she forgot.” Lana shushed him from the kitchen before turning to face her once more.
With Lana’s hands on her hips she said, “Spill, Madison. I am not blind. I know Riley and Stormy are Trent’s father. Holy crap, how couldn’t I have seen the resemblance before today? I have seen them play with Tye all those years. They look just like him.”
