Tropical Ice by Author Kat Mizera, part of Roxanne St. Claire’s Barefoot Bay kindle world, IS NOW LIVE!



Garrett “Hawk” Hawkins may be a bad boy in the rink but he doesn’t know what to do when he’s wrongly accused of on-ice misconduct. Given a five-game suspension by the NHL, he heads down to Mimosa Key to lay on the beach for a few days and get his head on straight—until he runs into a troubled beauty who happens to be the sister of his ex-teammate.

Madison Teller is struggling to get past the trauma of her brother’s brutal attack, but her much-needed vacation is turning into a nightmare. The sexy tattooed stranger who saves the day is just the distraction she’s looking for, but she isn’t prepared for the way he makes her feel.

When his present collides with her past, they’ll have to learn to trust each other before both their hearts end up on ice.

Tropical Ice by Kat Mizera

One of the things I love about kindle worlds is that you don’t actually have to know anything about the series they are a spin from to enjoy them. Each story is their own world, they just have characters very loosely connected to the bigger world/series. It’s a fantastic way to introduce yourself to new authors without investing 300+ pages … cuz you never know if an author is for you and life is too short to read books that aren’t for you. That’s exactly what I did here. I’ve wanted to experience Kat Mizera for a while now and this gave me the perfect opportunity. I’m glad I finally did because this was delicious!

Here’s something else I want to give the author props for…she made insta-lust realistic. Too many times author just assume falling in love quick is no problem because it’s fiction when in reality, no one wants to read unrealistic fiction. And falling in love quickly and turning your world on a dime can be complicated and probably not smooth sailing. That should be acknowledge in books. If it isn’t, then we’re just reading fantasy land. I’m not a fan of Fantasy Land LOL So Kat does this well. The conflict in their journey is real and relatable and it makes you root for them!

This story had surprising depth to it for its length and the plot unfolded flawlessly. The chemistry was very well done from the beginning. I personally think the story would have been better suited as a HFN ending, but it’s not my story so …. Overall, I’m impressed with the author and I will happily invest in her work in the future!

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…
