Dr. Danni Angelo is the team physician for the Clarington Quakes hockey team. She’s worked hard to earn the players’ respect, but the new coach, Trey Mason, is stirring things up, and Danni’s worried her job may be in jeopardy.

Trey finds Danni…distracting. Beauty, brains, and sexy moves on the ice have him uncomfortably attracted. He’s the new guy on the block. He has a reputation to build and a standard to set. The last thing he needs is a complication.

When the team spirals out of control and Danni and Trey get caught up in a drug scandal, things heat up on and off the ice. It’s a whole new game plan…Behind the Bench.

Tech Tip

Keeping your home and computer safe from hackers starts by keeping your WiFi router secure. If you’ve never changed the default settings on your router – both the username and password – now’s the time to consider doing so.

If a hacker can figure out the model of your router, chances are they can crack your password if you haven’t changed it from the factory setting. Routers often share common default settings and a determined hacker can take advantage of weak points in a particular model’s security or sneak in using the default passwords.

Change your router’s username so that it doesn’t identify your service provider or your address. This makes it more challenging for a hacker to determine the type of router you’re using. The default password should also be changed. Annoying as it is to have a long password incorporating uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols, it gives you an extra layer of protection since it’s harder to guess. For added security, the password should be changed regularly – when you change the clocks for daylight savings time, change your router password, too!

Here’s an additional tip: place your router in the middle of your home. Not only will it provide equal access to the WiFi signal throughout your home, it keeps the signal from spilling too widely outside the perimeter of your property, where it could be more vulnerable to attack.
