The O’ Freels: Power Play Book 3 (Scheduled Release: Fall 2017)


Publisher: Palm Tree Books

**50 percent proceeds from sales of The O’Freels  will be donated to the ShineALigh7 Foundation.**

Drafted 62nd overall and in the second round by the Newark Fire at age twenty-two, Mairtain “Marty” O’Freel enjoyed a respectable American Hockey Conference success for over a decade, including later stints with the Pittsburgh Rebels and San Diego Pacific. Marty made playoff appearances during his entire career before capturing a long-eluded Princeton Trophy championship with the Pacific.

Despite his lack of ‘elite player’ status and possessing below average looks, Marty had little trouble attracting considerably younger women for one-night stands, casual flings, and an occasional short-term relationship, yet each left him unfulfilled.

A career-ending injury forces Marty to explore new career paths, find someone to share his life, and start a family. Smitten from the first time he laid eyes on Harper Finnegan, Marty knew she was the girl he wanted to marry.

Harper never followed sports and had no idea who Marty O’Freel was when they met at a football-watching party hosted by her boss, San Diego mayor Philip Bisson. Initially bemused by Marty’s doting attention, Harper eventually returns the gregarious and kind former AHC defenseman’s ardor.

The couple relocate to Pittsburgh after Marty is hired as an associate coach for the Rebels, but will their relationship – and subsequent marriage – withstand living in a new city and shouldering additional responsibilities?

Quinn Talmadge is about to realize his dream of following in his father’s footsteps as captain of the Pittsburgh Rebels.

Off the ice, Quinn’s future is far less certain. He faced many struggles throughout most of his life: surviving a premature birth, being dumped by his first love on junior prom night, and wondering if he’ll establish a separate identity from his family.

When classmate April Stephens rescues him from choking following their high school’s homecoming football game, her heroic action prompts Quinn to reevaluate his own life and need to achieve true success.

Alexandra “Alex” Galloway had lifelong ambitions of acting on Broadway, television, or in movies. Despite versatility in a wide range of regional dialects, stunt work, singing, ballroom dancing, archery, and field, street, and ice hockey, she has thus far been limited to an endless string of film extra and uncredited roles.

Alex’s small part in an underdog women’s hockey team film catches the eye of a visitor to the Vancouver set while in town for a game – Troy Talmadge, star and team captain of the American Hockey Conference’s Pittsburgh Rebels.

Dazzled by her on-ice flair, Troy appoints himself as Alex’s mentor. He urges his agent to take her on as a client and signed to a Women’s Hockey League contract, but the agent has something far better in mind: having her drafted as the AHC’s first woman player, specifically to the Rebels.

Will Alex survive the pressures that accompany her newly-found professional hockey career…or does it slowly freeze much as her previous stint as an actress?
