Great news for Hockey Romance fans!

You all know how much I love my hockey romance! One of my favorite hockey romance authors, Deirdre Martin, has just announced the next book in her NY Blades series:

~Deirdre Martin

Publisher: Berkley
Publish Date: February 7, 2012
ISBN-10: 0425243680
ISBN-13: 978-0425243688

From the author's website:
They had it all planned out: college, marriage, happily ever after. But it didn't quite work out that way... 

Erin O'Brien was everyone's favorite in Ballycraig, while Rory Brady was the town's golden boy: the local lad who moved to America and became a professional hockey player. Rory promised to return to sweep Erin away to the life of her dreams in New York. But the bright lights and late nights turned his head and he never came back. 

Two years later, Rory realizes he's made the worst mistake of his life. Heading back to Ballycraig, he's confident that all he needs to do is flash his winning smile and Erin will fall back into his arms. But Erin's moved on. 

Racing the clock, Rory needs to prove to her that the man she fell in love with is still there. But can happy-go-lucky Erin risk it all and give another chance to the man who broke her heart? 

Is anyone else as excited as I am?!?  Hunky hockey guys and set in Ireland?  Sign me up please!!!
