International Hockey Romance Month Author/Book Spotlight - Jaymee Jacobs' Home Ice Advantage



Today I am thrilled to have another Seduced by the Game author here! As you may recall, the Seduced by the Game books are charity works. 100% of all proceeds are being donated to various hockey teams cancer funds. Please support all the authors who have books coming out over the next few months. Jaymee is here to tell us about her release, and the first of the Seduced by the Game books to come out so far, Home Ice Advantage! 






BLURB:

Iris may have home ice advantage, but Mark is the hometown hockey hero.

Mark Klingensmith just played the worst season of his career. He’s got one season left on his contract with the Dallas Comets, and he’s worried that the team won’t re-sign him. Mark doesn’t have time to think about his future, though, because he gets the bad news that his mother is still sick with cancer and is undergoing a second round of chemotherapy.

Iris Olson has been taking care of Mark’s mother, Sandra, while Mark was off playing pro hockey. Sandra had always been like a mother to Iris, and Iris gladly takes on the duty of helping Sandra after her diagnosis.

When Mark returns to Grand Rapids, Minnesota, for the summer to help with his mother, Iris’s life gets much more complicated. They have a history: she and Mark were once engaged. The two former flames team up to help Sandra through her treatment, and working together so closely reminds them of why they were so in love—but they are also reminded of why they couldn’t make it work.

Can they reconcile their love for each other while pursuing their dream careers? Will they try to give their relationship a second chance? And will Sandra beat her cancer?

Home Ice Advantage is being released as a part of the Seduced by the Game: Cancer Charity Collection. All proceeds will be donated to the Mario Lemieux Foundation, to support cancer research and patient care.

AUTHOR INFO:

Jaymee Jacobs is southwestern Pennsylvania born and raised. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BA in English literature and a psychology minor.

Jay has always had an interest in people and their stories. After graduating, she turned that interest into crafting her own stories featuring her own characters. With some encouragement from friends and readers, Jay decided to take the plunge and began to self-publish her novels. Play the Man came first, published in March 2013. Shots on Net followed in October 2013. In 2014, Jay released Game On and began developing her hockey romance series featuring the Dallas Comets. "A Valuable Trade," the first novella of the series, was released as a part of the Seduced by the Game cancer charity anthology in 2014, and Home Ice Advantage will follow suit in 2015.

Hockey plays a major role in these stories because she's a die-hard fan of the sport. Jay faithfully cheers for her hometown team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. She plays fantasy hockey as one of two female owners in a male-dominated league and routinely ranks in the top half of owners. For the 2015-16 season, she was promoted to co-commissioner (Gary Bettman, eat your heart out!).
