Ella Jade - Baseball Romance

Please welcome Ella Jade to the Brit Babes blog today...

Spring is just around the corner and so is baseball season. In my house, not only does that mean it’s time for professional baseball, but for my kids to take the field too. My weeknights and Saturdays will be booked solid through July.

In our house spring not only represents flowers, April showers and the start of longer days, but gloves, bats, and lots of Gatorade and sunflower seed consumption. I’m surrounded by the game.

When it came time to write my latest series I decided to make my hero a professional baseball player. It seemed like a no-brainer... all those hunky athletes to draw inspiration from and all. Having two boys and a husband who live and breathe the sport made in-house research a breeze. Any questions I had about the game, schedules, pitching rotation and uniforms were quickly answered. Although by the time I was finished writing the book my questions were being answered with less enthusiasm. I think I tapped them out. The end result was worth it and now I’m currently working on book three in my Best Selling Kingston Heat Series.

Book two just released!

While the players are gearing up to take the field this spring I have a sports romance to help heat up your night.

Do you like sexy, charismatic, take charge infielders? Nic Cordova may be your next book boyfriend.

“I want to know the woman you are today. I want another shot at this.”

“No,” Sage whispered.

“If you remember anything about me, I have a hard time with that word.” Nic tipped her chin, focusing on her lips. “I am going to kiss you. Right here and right now.”

Her knees buckled as a cool tremor swept through her. She wanted to say no. It was the only logical word to mutter, but her heart didn’t want her to say it. Her body wasn’t on board with turning him down either. The warmth that built in her stomach had moved lower, and now all she could think about was his lips on hers.

“It doesn’t sound like you’re asking,” she breathed out.

“I’m not.”

Sliding Into Second features one of my favorite themes... second chance stories. After a seven year separation, Nic and Sage are reunited. Nic is ready to start over and vows never to let Sage walk away again. Sage has other plans. She won’t let him break her heart a second time.

“Whatever we’re doing, it can’t be more than this,” Sage said.
“You just want physical?” Nic placed his free hand on the side of her face, guiding her to his lips. “I don’t believe that’s what you really want. That’s not the way your heart works.”
“It does now.” She had to protect herself.
“I don’t believe that.” He kissed the corner of her mouth. “You’re lying to me.”
“I can leave right now if what I’m asking is too much.”

Not letting her heart get in the way is easier said than done. Once Nic turns on the charm there’s no running away. Old feelings come rushing to the surface and Sage has to make a decision... run or take a shot with her second baseman.

Both books in the Kingston Heat Series stand alone and can be read in either order. If you like sports romances with strong, sexy men and the women who know how to challenge them be sure to grab both Stealing His Heart and Sliding Into Second. You can pick up Sliding Into Second for a discounted release price of 99 cents. That’s a total steal!

About Ella Jade

Ella Jade has been writing for as long as she can remember. As a child, she often had a notebook and pen with her, and now as an adult, the laptop is never far. The plots and dialogue have always played out in her head, but she never knew what to do with them. That all changed when she discovered the eBook industry. She started penning novels at a rapid pace and now she can't be stopped.

Ella resides in New Jersey with her husband and two boys. When she's not chasing after her kids, she's busy creating sexy, domineering men and the strong women who know how to challenge them in and out of the bedroom.  She hopes you'll get lost in her words.

She loves connecting with readers. You can find her here…
