Maybelle Li is a high achiever. She wants to do things to atone for the death of her sister. Belle felt that she was responsible even though she was only seven at the time. Belle has worked hard at her skating and in her studies. When she finally finishes her skating career, she wants to work in biomedical research. Subconsciously Belle is trying to fulfil her sister’s dream, but Belle needs to find herself.

Bohdan Dovzhenko is new to Australia even though he is one of the world’s top ice skaters. His previous partner, and lover, demanded too much from him and they separated as lovers and skaters. He came to Australia to work with his new partner, Maybelle Li, and they have reached Olympic level.

There is a tension between the two skaters. Both are dedicated to their sport but have become very adept at hiding their feelings. Then during competition, the feelings dam opens wide and this sporting pair become a couple.

This novella is a fairly quick read and allows the reader to get caught up in the excitement and drama of the Winter Olympics. Both Belle and Bohdan are very focused people and this has allowed their personal relationships to lapse, or in fact fracture to have an impact on their professional lives. Finding their other half means the skating becomes better as does their ability to relate to each other.

I’m sorry I can’t tell you the final results at the Olympics so you will have to read the story for yourself. Although I can tell you that it has the best outcome, a HEA.
