The Love Penalty

By Carolyn Miller


Sometimes there's a hefty price to pay when two opposites attract...
With her fondness for tattoos and spider jewelry Sylvie Miles is used to being pre-judged and misunderstood. She has friends and connections but she still feels alone, and works several jobs while daydreaming about finding a guy who sees further than skin deep and won’t shy away from her battered heart. So when a hot pro hockey player with a smile as vast as his skills takes a shine to her what’s a poor girl to do but fall in love?
Ryan Guillemette sure wasn’t looking for romance in a bookstore in his hometown but quickly becomes intrigued by the sassy Goth-like assistant with a snarky way with words. When an accidental kiss proves dangerously addictive she soon becomes embedded in his heart. But even as the romance heats up he’s torn as she’s not following God. Can these two opposites make a match or should he call a permanent time out?
These two are about to learn that those who play with fire get burned, and there’s a hefty price to pay for forbidden attraction. The Love Penalty is the second book in the Northwest Ice Christian hockey romance series, and can be read as a standalone, and is perfect for fans of Becky Wade, Courtney Walsh, and Susan May Warren.

Book Takeaway:

Finding love in God is the best way to finding wholeness

Why the author wrote this book:

I wanted to explore the story of The Prodigal Son in a contemporary setting. Too often Christians can judge those who are broken, who make poor choices, making it hard for people to feel accepted. So what happens when someone who has been hurt and abandoned by her family is trying to find love? I also wanted to explore how Christians cope with temptation, especially the slippery slope to sexual sin (but without crossing the line!). So this book sees a good Christian guy caught up in the throes of attraction to a girl who just wants to be loved.
