USA Today bestselling author Catherine Gayle presents the first novel in the Tulsa Thunderbirds hockey romance series, a spin-off from her popular Portland Storm series. 

They both need to make amends…
But they might be making more than that.

Tulsa Thunderbirds goaltender Hunter Fielding has a lot of kissing up to do following a few brash and uncalled-for statements. Now he needs to prove to the watchful eyes that he’s changed for the better. But cozying up to Little-Miss-Perfect-Gone-Bad isn’t his idea of making amends.

Agreeing to marry a hockey star to clear her “bad girl” reputation is the worst idea Oklahoma’s former sweetheart, Tallulah Belle Roth, has ever heard. With cameras constantly in their faces, Hunter and Tallie need to prove their sickeningly-sweet, do-good lives are the real deal—just to Bury the Hatchet once and for all.

But when the cameras are off, desire burns hot. Can fake and just for show turn into something real and forever?

    I haven't read one of Gayles books in some time and I had forgotten how much I like them. She NAILS dialogue as well as Nora Roberts or Susan Mallery. The thing she does best is bring the characters' back stories into the plot. No one is the "perfect guy." I'm hoping we see more of Tallie. I look forward to watching her grow, even if on the periphery of the future books.

    Tulsa Thunderbirds is a spin-off series of the Portland Storm series by Catherine Gayle. I fell just as hard for the Thunderbirds as I did for the Storm, but it a different way. If the cover art didn't tip you off already, this series is raw, edgy, and blunt. I loved reading Catherine write about the misfits banded together due to the NHL Expansion draft and loved the racy nature of the book. You're gonna need a fan to cool yourself down from this one!

    Bury the Hatchet is the first book in Catherine Gayle’s Tulsa Thunderbirds series, a spin-off of her very popular Portland Storm series. Bury the Hatchet features former Storm goalie Hunter Fielding and former Miss Oklahoma Tallie Roth, both of whom hold the dubious distinction of having angered and disappointed a good portion of the state. This story is a new twist on an old romance classic, the marriage of convenience. Hunter and Tallie are engaged by the end of their first meeting and married just days later. While both go into the marriage with an eye on the convenience part of their marriage, it quickly becomes clear to each of them that they are carrying a ton of baggage – a drug addict sibling, a former lover, a crazed pageant guru, a distant parent – and that maybe the other can help them bare the weight. The Tulsa Thunderbirds series is starting off to be a bit edgier and sexy than the Storm series, the cover alone is darker and sexier than those of the Storm books, but Gayle’s extensive knowledge of the game and ability to hit some really tough topics without going too dark are still very much a part of Bury the Hatchet.
