Independent and goal orientated, Diana Spenner has set her sights on buying the old Ferriday House and running her own Bed and Breakfast by the end of the year. Nothing will sway her from her plans, especially the famous hockey player Dominic Chekovsky, who can't take no for an answer. But, when Dominic strolls into Cottage Grove and begs her in his thick Russian accent to keep his adoring female fans away from him, she's not going to turn him down—because the job pays half a million dollars.
Dominic Chekovsky life is out of control. American women go crazy around him. They invade his personal space, leave their husbands for him, and make his life hell. Except, Diana. She's the one woman who always turns him down, no matter how many times he asks her out on a date. Now he's desperate. He needs Diana's help to figure out why she's the only female immune to his charm, so he can continue to play hockey in the United States. Maybe when Diana finally allows herself to say yes to having sex with him, he'll be over his wild fascination with the one woman who always tells him no.
Warning: Sexy Russian accent, big ego, and thick, hard thighs on ice. Go Sharks!

Cottage Grove resident, Diana Spenner has dreamed of buying and turning the old Ferriday House into a Bed and Breakfast. When renowned hockey player Dominic Chekovsky, offers her million dollars to keep his out of control female fans away from him for two weeks, it’s an offer she cannot refuse. Too bad she can’t stand his ego.
I really enjoyed the characters. I like that Dominic is intrigued by Diana because she doesn’t seem interested in him. I felt bad for the guy with everyone throwing themselves at him. As a professional athlete, it would be hard to find someone that liked you for who you really are and not your image. Dominic is a good guy. He loves hockey, and he is a loyal family member sending money back to his family in Russia.
I enjoyed that Diana is hard working and focused. She finds Dominic attractive but is turned off by his ego. As she gets to know the real him, she discovers what a great guy he is. Diana is smart, being able to figure out how to get Dominic out of the limelight.
Debra Kayn did a great job with the story. The cologne scenes were pretty entertaining; what companies will do to make money. I also, enjoyed Diana experiencing the Sharks game. Honestly, enjoyed all the interactions between Dom and Diana. They experienced all sorts of emotions together making the story interesting. Seductively is the first book I’ve read by Debra Kayn. She is a worthy writer. I would definitely read another book in this series.
