I need another Kat Book !!! I still can’t get over Defending Dani!!!! I loved the story and it is my new favorite book! If you need something to read it is a truly wonderful read! Ashley @White Hot Reads.
My new favorite book! This is an awesome read and great start to a new Series!!! Ashley @ White Hot Reads
I love Kat’s Sidewinders Series and have read them all and could not wait to get my hands on her new book Defending Dani and it did not disappoint. You do not have to have read any of her other books to truly fall in love with Dani and Sergei but there are cross over characters throughout this entire book. This book has so many emotions and I could not put it down read it in one day. Sergei is the widowed single dad hockey player who has been traded to a new city and who has closed his heart to falling in love again. Dani who is a virgin Olympic Hockey player who’s helping her brother and his teammates as a nanny while she finishes her Master’s and go to the Olympic Games! When Sergei needs someone to help him take his son to Alaska and get his home set up Dani takes on the task. There is an expiration to Dani being in Sergei’s house but what these two do not count on is the attraction and feelings that bloom in this environment. Niko, Sergei’s son adds so much to the relationship and the story. There are so many real life issues that draw you in and keep you wanting more. Be prepared to laugh out loud and ugly cry because of these two. A truly great love story about to hurt souls. A great start to a new series and I cannot wait for the next book.

Defending Dani was a book that I was most looking forward getting in my hands and I was not disappointed! Sergei's story was one I enjoyed so much. The Love, trust, sacrifice, longing, and tears that came pouring out of me are what made this book so amazing. Elizabeth @ White Hot Reads
Sergei Petrov has not had a great love life. Two marriages, one when he was too young that ended in divorce and his second wife was ripped from him right in front of his eyes. Why would he take that chance again? His son and playing hockey professionally are all that he needs.
Danielle Cloutier is a beautiful, talented, smart and athletic woman. She is living her dream and is hoping to have the gold on her wall when she starts her dream job. She never banks on Sergei and the way he makes her feel, this man looks and treats her like a woman, not the born athlete that she is.
Can Sergei open his heart up again? Can Dani get the Gold and the man with the heart of Gold?
Professional hockey player Sergei Petrov has had a rough time after the tragic loss of his wife. Playing hockey and taking care of his son are all he has time for, all he wants. Getting traded was not on the agenda. Neither was a sexy, hockey-playing nanny to further complicate things.
Star college athlete Danielle Cloutier may dominate the rink, but off the ice, she’s an amateur. She has been trying to get rid of her virginity for years, but guys are always intimated by her strength. That’s about to change when she meets her new boss.
Chemistry between them sizzles, hot enough to melt the most frozen of hearts, but Danielle can’t afford to get attached. Not when she’ll be leaving soon.
Sergei doesn’t know what to do with the sexy, stubborn woman, but watching her turn his new house a home makes him wonder if she’s exactly what he needs. Can he come to terms with his feelings before she skates out of his life for good?
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
