Valerie Michaels knows all about life, responsibility–and hockey. After all, her brother is a defenseman for the Baltimore Banners. The last thing she needs–or wants–is to get tangled up with one of her brother’s teammates. She doesn’t have time, not when running The Maypole is her top priority. She opened the popular sports bar and restaurant two years ago and has been busy ever since. Maybe too busy. Could that be the reason she’s suddenly drawn to the troubled Justin Tome? Or is it because she senses something deeper inside him, something she thinks she can fix?
On the surface, Justin Tome has it all: a successful career with the Banners, money, fame. But he’s been on a downward spiral the last few months. He’s become more withdrawn, his game has gone downhill, and he’s been partying too much. He thinks it’s nothing more than what’s expected of him, nothing more than once again failing to meet expectations and never quite measuring up. Then he starts dating Val and realizes that maybe he has more to offer than he thinks.
Or does he? Sometimes voices from the past, voices you’ve heard all your life, are too strong to overcome. And when the unexpected happens, Justin is certain he’s looking at a permanent Delay of Game–unless one strong woman can make him see that life is all about the future, not the past.

Lisa B. Kamps is the author of the best-selling series The Baltimore Banners, featuring “hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players” (USA Today), on and off the ice. Her much-anticipated new series, Firehouse Fourteen, features hot and heroic firefighters and will launch with ONCE BURNED in March.
Lisa grew up with an overactive imagination, strong encouragement from her parents, and an insatiable infatuation with the Peanuts gang. That infatuation—along with an impatience she has yet to outgrow—jump-started her love of writing. After all, why should she be forced to wait a whole week to read the stories of her favorite characters when she could create stories for them whenever she wanted?
That love of writing continued to grow, along with all those voices in her head, even during her assorted careers: first as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department, then a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.
Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons, one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.
