Janna MacNeil is a publicist specializing in re-tooling
clients' images and damage control. She's just been hired
to transform the reputation of the New York Blades, a
hockey team known for playing hard both on and off the ice.
Last year, after winning the Stanley Cup, they celebrated
at strip joints and made headlines. Kidcothe team's
new corporate ownerwants the Cup again, but not the
scandal. And that's where Janna comes in. They are paying
her big bucks to make the Blades seem "family friendly".
Her new boss, Lou "The Bull" Capesi, guzzles Mylanta like
spring water, and admits the team is a PR nightmare. The
way he sees it, the only way to get the guys to co-operate
is to win the respect of their Captain, three-time Stanley
Cup winner Ty Gallagher. No problem, thinks Janna. Getting
the players to toe the corporate line will be a piece of
cakethey make their living chasing a little rubber
biscuit around an ice rink.
How smart can they be? All she has to do is get the
captain to see Kidco's point of view.
Easier said than done, because Ty Gallagher is plenty
smart, distractingly good-looking and sees things from his
own point of view. And he has better things to do with his
time than deal with a publicist, no matter how often she
gets in his face...
Not many women can boast bossing around a locker room
full of buff, naked jocks as part of their job
description, but then again, there aren't many women with
a job like Janna MacNeil's.
