Cross Stroke is available Now




One night left my heart shattered and my reputation ruined, and now my only hope is to transfer to another university far from home. Although I’m a champion figure skater and am used to succeeding, I can’t dump the burden of distrust and intimacy I’m carrying.


But when I literally crash into the cocky captain of the hockey team, sparks fly, and the attraction is as undeniable as it is unwanted.


No way is this arrogant hottie the one to help me move past my fears. Or is he…?




Overwhelmed with guilt and remorse, I can’t forget the tragic accident that killed my first love. To avoid ever feeling that kind of agonizing loss again, I vow to stick with one-night stands with every puck bunny who glides my way and focus on keeping my position on the hockey team.


But after I meet a feisty figure skater and am then thrown together with her as a lab partner, I find I want to melt the icy walls we’ve built around our hearts.


If we don’t strangle each other first.



Get ready to warm up your winter with Tracey's and Dak's story because Fire melts ice every time!


Sometimes you land a great job, Meet your Soulmate & live happily ever after...This isn't one of those times.

By Elizabeth Hartey








Sometimes you land a great job, meet your soulmate and live happily ever after---nothing else required.  This isn't one of those times.


Annie Caslo is a successful, young doctor, but when she begins rethinking the career choices she's made, she makes a decision to find a way to stay focused and achieve her true ambitions--- that is until fate steps in and she is thunderstruck by Colt Ballard.  He's six foot three inches of heart-stopping hotness, an adept, roguish soccer star and also one of her interns.  But he's a player---on and off the field---and Annie has better things to do. Still, the combustible chemistry between them is impossible to resist---Colt brings out feelings she never knew existed and Annie's swept off her reluctant feet.


When she continues to second-guess her life choices, opportunities and obstacles begin piling up higher than the greasy Mexican food stacks she hates to admit loving. While in a state of emotional turmoil, she gets a celestial visit from a hunky, Hollywood heartthrob, lookalike, who claims to be her guardian angel. He takes her on a magical road trip to self-discovery with the help of several, dearly departed film icons.


Drawn into the excitement of a life she's always dreamed of,  this new life threatens to shatter the LIFE and love she already has---unless her quirky angel can help her find a way to have it all.

Read some of the reviews readers are giving to Reel Love

This book isn’t about the fairytale romance that we read so much about in romance books but the journey to be fulfilled in that relationship and figuring out if the dream is still there with that one person... I really, really hope that Dr. Hartey writes a sequel to this book. Harlie's Reviews

Elizabeth Hartey, Author


As a lover of the northeast US, Elizabeth moved with her husband to the Poconos several years ago to open a Chiropractic Clinic. Four children and a menagerie of animals later, she has finally found time to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing novels. The wild ride of writing books is one of the most difficult things she’s ever done in her life. But the opportunity to get her stories out of her head and down on paper and send them out into the world is also one of the most wonderful things she’s ever done. A dreamer at heart, romance is the genre she spends most of her time writing and reading into the wee hours of the morning. And having readers fall in love with her characters as much as she does is almost as exciting as giving birth (just not as painful!) When not juggling work responsibilities and writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking the beautiful hills and woods around her home, swimming, knitting, watching old classic movies and travelling. As an avid hockey fan she has to compromise with her husband—one night of hockey for her in exchange for a night of football for him.
