Worth More Than Gold by Ana Blaze
Everyone knows Erik Andresen’s best shot at an individual medal was back in 2010, before an injury pulled him from the competition. He’s there for his team, but a hot night and a remarkable final training session have him wondering if a gorgeous good-luck charm could give him another chance at the podium.
With a little bit of luck, these two might have a shot at something worth more than gold.
Trouble with Gold by Melinda Dozier
US snowboarder and notorious prankster, Ty (Trouble) Madsen is only getting a taste of his own medicine when his Olympic teammates shackle him to a fence wearing nothing but his boxers.
Reception and protocol volunteer, Nadia Hoffman, gets up close and personal with the sexy snowboarder to rescue him, but she's not the kind of girl who lets her hormones get in her way. A professional performance could help her land her dream job at Olympics Committee Headquarters, but her new assignment supervising the rambunctious US Snowboarding Team is making that difficult. Can she see behind the snowman in the community center bathroom and into the warm heart of the man everyone calls Trouble?
The Girl behind the Gold by Aria Kane
“Come back with a story that will make readers cry, or don’t come back.” This is what Brandon James’ boss told him before he left New York to cover the Winter Games for Moment Magazine. With a wink and a smile, he can charm his way into any invite-only party, but that career-making story is nowhere to be found – until he meets Lia.
The two strike a deal that should get them both what they want - but neither would have guessed they’d also find what they need.
Ice Gold by Kara Leigh Miller

I have got to say that this book was a first for me, in that I LOVED every story in it! I have never read an anthology where I loved every story, so this thrilled me. They each were wonderfully entertaining, humorous and sexy. I enjoyed that each story highlighted different Olympic sports and that some stories gave little reference to the other stories. My heart was captured by the prankster snowboarder Ty(aka Trouble) and the sweet yet determined to have "fun" volunteer Nadia. Ty finds himself in an awkward situation and Nadia rescues him and he considers her his "lucky lady". Then the sexy yet outrageous hockey player Colton tries to seduce the Olympic hating photographer Brenna. Along comes socially awkward Greek Aerial skier Lia and charming reporter Brandon. Lia needs a sponsor to help save her family farm and he needs a heart wrenching story for his boss. The book concludes with serious Amy and the Viking giant, Erik. Amy is her ice skating sister's manager who catches the eye of Ski Jumper Erik and their chemistry is seriously hot. I highly recommend this entertaining book and will be keeping my eyes out for other stories written by these fabulous ladies.
