A holiday entry in the Rookie Rebels series, featuring a player who’s been here from the start...

Chicago Rebels goalie Erik gets his shot at love...but first he'll have to figure out what he did to offend the woman he's crushed on forever.

Casey Higgins, assistant to the Chicago Rebels owner, has a smile for everyone who comes into the front office—everyone but goalie Erik Jorgenson. And he has no idea why. For the last year, she’s refused to give him a kind word, and finally, he’s had enough. At the Rebels holiday party he’ll uncover the root of their mysterious conflict and show this woman that goalkeepers do their best work...on their knees.

Can a little Yuletide cheer get Erik into Casey’s good graces, warm bed, and frozen heart? Or will he fumble the puck and lose his chance?

Join the Chicago Rebels this holiday season and find out if Erik is as good at saving Christmas as he is at saving goals!

Kate Meader is simply the best. Rebel Yule is the overall twelfth novella/book in her Chicago Rebels/Rookie Rebels series. This is a standalone read, though characters from both series make appearances throughout the story.

Erik “Fish” Jorgenson has been a character in the Chicago Rebels world since the first book, Irresistible You. The twenty-seven-year-old Swedish goalie has been a quiet secondary character and oftentimes punch line for jokes by other players. Finally, Erik is getting his shot at love, and the woman who has captured his attention is quite a surprise.

Casey Higgins is the executive assistant to Harper Chase DuPre, one of the owners of the Chicago Rebels professional hockey team. Casey has worked for the team for about a year. She’s nice and personable to everyone in the organization, except for Erik. Him, she disliked on sight. In fact, Casey never smiles at Erik and she does her best to ignore him whenever he has his meetings with Harper, or when they are in social settings. No one knows why she has such a dislike for Erik. Casey’s reaction to Erik has absolutely nothing to do with her fangirling over him.

I LOVED Erik. He’s the only boy in his close-knit family that includes three girls. He loves Christmas beyond measure. Trust me, his love is very surprising. Erik has a lot of layers to him, but what really surprised me is that he’s really vulnerable and is unsure of himself. Casey, like Erik has self-esteem issues. Her ex and her parents consistently make her feel as though she isn’t enough. She is definitely enough. Erik and Casey have great back and forth banter when they are finally forced to deal with the issue between them. They work well together as a couple. And they are definitely passionate.

Rebel Yule is a nice Christmas read and a great addition to the Chicago Rebels/Rookie Rebels series.

Originally from Ireland, Kate Meader cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Harlequins thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron, a fire hose, or a hockey stick, and she's there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines (and heroes) who can match their men quip for quip.
