"A gold-medal winner" - Christine Brennan, USA Today sports columnist
In sixteen days of the Winter Olympics, careers can be made, medals can be won and hearts can be lost . . .
Tessa Rutledge, once an Olympic champion figure skater, returns to the Games as a coach, encountering her first love and only heartbreak and testing her ability to forgive.
Alpine skier Kyle Armstrong has made a terrible mistake that could cost her a shot at Olympic gold as well as any hope of reconciling with the man she loves.
Biathlete Rikki Lodge thinks she's just happy to be at the Games, until she meets a hockey player who demands that she do what she's never done before: put it all on the line.
Let The Games begin!
