About RAFE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett comes a new story in her Arizona Vengeance seriesโ€ฆ

I was living my dream until one phone call changed everything.

As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thingโ€”helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkableโ€”a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury.

Now Iโ€™m home and when Iโ€™m not on the ice with my new team, Iโ€™m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected.

Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my firstโ€ฆ everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesnโ€™t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and Iโ€™ve never given up hope that one day weโ€™d be together again.

Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Calliope by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and Iโ€™m not going to waste the second chance that Iโ€™ve been given.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, itโ€™s an introduction to an authorโ€™s world. And for fans, itโ€™s a bonus book in the authorโ€™s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Excerpt:

โ€œYou look like a fairy sea princess,โ€ I tell her truthfully.

She blinks, waterdrops fall.

I canโ€™t help it… I start laughing.

Immediately, I snap my mouth shut and bite down hard on my tongue. โ€œIโ€™m sorry.โ€

Calliope blinks again and then her lips part.

I snicker.

Then snort.

Her beautiful eyes narrow on me, and the next thing I know, sheโ€™s sending a wave of nasty pond water right at me. It catches me full in the face, hits the back of my throat, and I choke on it. I deserve it.

When I clear my eyes, Calliope is bent over, laughing hysterically, her shoulder dipping down into the water. The sound of her lilting voice is music to my ears, and I donโ€™t want it to stop.

So whatโ€™s a guy to do?

I splash a wall of water back at her. She sputters and looks stunned for only a moment before her palms slap at the pondโ€™s surface, and Iโ€™m caught full in the face again.

Then itโ€™s on.

We both go at each other, laughing and splashing. Calliope comes up to her knees. She wobbles in the sucking mud but gets better leverage on me. Iโ€™m entirely doused by wave after wave. I hold up my arms, trying to protect myself, and suddenly realize I need to go more on the offensive.

I lurch up, lunge at her, and grab her wrists to stop the inundation. Sheโ€™s laughing so hard she barely has any strength left to fight against me. Her face is flushed despite the chill, and I canโ€™t fucking help myself.

I crash my mouth down on hers, feel her freeze in shock for a moment, and then gobble down the sultry groan that warbles out of her. It heats me to my bones, and then weโ€™re clawing at each other.

Grabbing, fisting clothing, attacking each other with our mouths. My hands make their way back to her face, intent on holding her still so I can consume everything she has to offer.

The kiss is atomic, off-the-charts hot, and filled with so much emotion I donโ€™t know whether sheโ€™s coming at me with hate or something else.

Doesnโ€™t matter.

Iโ€™m not stopping.

Then something comes over me…a calm that feels like a steadying hand. I slow myself, make an exploring and leisurely swipe of my tongue against hers, and she melts into my body. An arm around her waist, I pull both of us to a standing position, the water lapping at my lower legs. I haul her into me and kiss her with all the regret Iโ€™ve been carrying around in my soul for yearsโ€”a sincere apology.

BOOK TRAILER

 

โ€œEach time I read a new book in this series, I have a new favourite, they just keep getting better and better. This was an entertaining read that I thoroughly enjoyed.โ€ ~ Erin, MI Bookshelf

“Is it weird that I want to give this book a standing ovation?
It was just…so perfectly done. So beautifully written and so emotionally fulfilling. It was absolutely everything I was hoping for and my heart is overflowing with feels.” ~ Shelly, Bookgasms Book Blog

“This series is by far eclipsing any other I have read by this author. This is the story of Dax and Regan. Brother’s best friend, friends to lovers, hockey romance, and just a great read about two people who deserve to be happy together. ” ~ Suzi, Obsessive Reading Disorder

โ€œThe writing was observantly insightful and sneakily emotive. . . . The storylines were briskly paced, well plotted, written with my favorite dual POV, and kept me continually entertained with a pleasantly engaging romance while also tickling my curiosity as I waited for the looming threat to arise.โ€โ€”Books and Bindings

โ€œAdd together an incredibly sexy story and a swoon-worthy hero with the intensity of a hockey player and you have an absolute winner. Sawyer Bennett has long been an instant one-click author for me, and Erikโ€™s story is a fantastic addition to the Arizona Vengeance series.โ€โ€”Stacey Lynn, author of Knocked Up

โ€œForbidden fruit always tastes better! With the kick off of a new hockey series, Sawyer Bennett introduces us to the Arizona Vengeance team and brings us Bishopโ€™s story. The characters are quick to grab attention, and keep us entertained throughout.โ€โ€”Thoughts of a Blonde
