Good thing high-powered attorney Sinead O'Brien has a rule about never dating clients. Because Adam Perry, the newest star of the New York Blades—and her newest client—has her headed for the penalty box. If only she could prove he's just another jock...

Adam's been charged with assault after a borderline hit on another star player, but off the ice he's a private, no-nonsense guy who knows the Blades are his last shot at Stanley Cup glory. Assembling her case, Sinead tries not to get distracted by Adam's dazzling good looks or strong work ethic, but she quickly discovers that there's a wounded man under that jersey, and she's starting to fall for him—hard.

Now Adam's having trouble focusing on the goal with Sinead in his sights. And Sinead is tempted to break her "no dating clients" rule. Can they play on their newfound feelings without penalties?

 “Deirdre Martin has an absolute winner on her hands. ICEBREAKER is a smart and down to earth romance that is exquisite to read, utterly enjoyable and genuine.”
—A Romance Review, Five Stars

 “ICEBREAKER is a wonderful contemporary romance... brings together characters from Martin's Wild Hart Saga and Blades series in a fast-moving, witty, and heartwarming story.”
—The Romance Dish, Four Stars

 “Martin’s sexy contemporary romance offers banter and an unusual juxtaposition of careers (Adam’s good friend and sounding board is a chef, and Sinead’s family owns and operates the family pub where the team congregates). This may appeal to fans of Julie James’ law-firm romances as well as sports enthusiasts, making Martin a good bet for readers who enjoy Carly Phillips (baseball) and Susan Elizabeth Phillips (football).”

 “ICEBREAKER is the 10th book in the Blades series and doesn't disappoint with cameo appearances from your favorite characters and a story that warms your heart. A fabulous read!”
—Fresh Fiction

 “Martin’s icons of the ice are back in her latest and perhaps finest New York Blades novel. Business and pleasure combine flawlessly and her acerbic wit adds plenty of well-timed humor to an already entertaining plot. A fast-paced read that captures the heart.”
