Ex-Playboy centerfold and stripper,
Faith Duffy is now a widow. She has just lost the only man
that has ever seen past her beauty to the woman inside – her
husband. Surprised and shocked to find out that her husband
left her his beloved hockey team in his will, Faith
immediately decides to sell it to her dead husband’s son.
When their encounter turns sour, Faith changes her mind and
goes with her gut. She is going to learn how to run the
Chinooks, no matter who tells her she can’t. And so Faith’s
journey into self sufficiency begins. The only thing
standing in her way is Ty Savage, the Chinooks’ goalie.
Ty sees the woman he thinks she is – a
scheming gold digger and his biggest complaint. However, he
can’t stop thinking about Faith. He imagines her in his
arms, his shower, and his bed. That is what angers him the
most. Ty has a job to do – help the Chinooks win the
Stanley Cup – and he is not about to let an ex-dancer ruin
his chances. It’s a good thing Ty doesn’t mind a change in
plans because with just one kiss Faith becomes more
important to him than he ever thought she would. Ty
suddenly sees past the outer façade to the woman beneath and
he loves her.
Faith’s character is gutsy and while
she lookes like a Barbie doll, she is anything but. Faith
is intelligent and genuinely a good person. Her plan to run
her deceased husband’s hockey team is commendable. What is
even more remarkable are the sparks that begin to fly
immediately between Faith and Ty Savage, the Chinooks’ team
captain. Ty’s a no-holds-barred hockey player with a plan.
Seeing the Stanley Cup in his future, he neither has the
time nor the inclination to babysit the Widow Duffy while
she plays at being a team owner. He is totally and
completely wrong about Faith, but one thing is certain – he
wants her with every single beat of his heart.
True Love and Other Disasters is my first
Rachel Gibson novel and I have to say that I am hooked and
frantically reading her back list. In fact, I am wondering
what took me so long to read her in the first place! Witty,
moving, and chock full of powerful loves scenes, True
Love and Other Disasters is brilliantly written. It
grabs you by the heart and keeps you reading. I hated for
True Love and Other Disasters to end but look
forward to more releases from this highly talented author.
