Jennifer Seasons is a New England transplant. She lives with her husband and four children in the rural mountains of Massachusetts where she enjoys gorgeous views every day. A dog and several cats keep them company. When she's not writing, she can be found in her studio playing with vivid color. Be it pastels for painting or acrylics on canvas; or even funky, chunky yarn for knitting and glazes for her hand-thrown pottery. For Jennifer, it's all about self-expression through colorful creations. She also loves spending time with her family outdoors exploring her beautiful adopted home state, practicing yoga, running, gardening, and lounging in her hammock under the trees with a good book and a homemade chocolate chip cookie-or three.
The Boys of Summer are chilling out and hitting the slopes in Jennifer Seasons' fun and sexy new DIAMONDS AND DUGOUTS tale about a second chance at bat and the courage it takes to step up to the plate.
Pulled home by a family obligation, the last thing Major League ballplayer Russell MacKade wants is a run-in with his ex. Talk about striking out. When his teammates crash his private weekend and drag him skiing, hiring a ski instructor for the day is no big deal. That is, until the instructor turns out to be his ex--the only person who's ever nailed Russell's strike zone. Seeing her again is a game changer, for sure. Now he's assessing all the plays and angles, all his moves. And this time, he isn't walking the bases.
All Rachel Goldberg has ever wanted is a second chance with the only man she's ever loved. After a decade of waiting, she's pretty sure it's never going to happen. But then Russell's teammates hire her to teach them to ski and not only is he back, he's better and hotter than ever. Now he's frying her brain and scrambling her signals. Driving her crazy and making her want all kinds of impossible things. Things that have nothing at all to do with her head or the heartache she suffered after the last time she fell for Russell--and everything to do with her heart.
Will this explosive pair step up to the plate and make a play for true love, or will they bunt and let the past keep them from finally making it all the way to home base?
