Product Description

A New League:



Fame. Fortune. Glamour and glory. The big leagues. Not everyone makes it to the top. Select few are good enough to get there. And once the dream has been realised, a fall from the pedestal is hard to accept. Defeat harder to admit. Moving on harder to do. Especially when the road to get there was scattered with deep potholes to begin with.

Sinful encounters and erotic moments can occupy the mind and the body while difficult decisions are being made, maybe even delay the inevitable. But in the end, only the support and love of that special someone can help those who have fallen to stand up again, and realise they’re in a new league now—one where dreams are shared—not with an entire world watching, waiting to see if you’ll rebound, but with the ones who will stand by and catch you if you don’t.

These are not the stories of the men or women playing the game, but rather what happens after the game is done playing with them.




Sliding into Home by Anne Lange





Book One in the A New League series



Can an injured ex ball player convince the woman he wakes up married to in Las Vegas to take a second chance on him?



After spending the last four months drowning his sorrows over the end of his baseball career, Jack Bishop finds himself winging through the blue skies to Las Vegas, not so ready to spend the weekend with some woman his best friend set him up with. He expects a paid escort. What he gets is the woman he walked away from ten years ago to pursue his passion, and she’s not very happy to see him.

Devyn Tate believes she’s quite capable of finding somebody to take her out to dinner. She’s no longer looking for a lifelong promise. She has a commitment only to her battery-operated toy to fulfill that particular need. Yet her friends have managed to talk her into spending the weekend in Las Vegas, on a blind date of all things. They promise the guy is trustworthy. They insist that she should have fun. Unfortunately, fun is not what she envisions when she discovers Jack Bishop lying on the floor of her suite in nothing but his underwear that’s on backward, and she has a wedding ring on her finger.



Anne Lange

About the Author:


Shoes are her addiction, but books are her passion. Anne Lange grew up with a love for reading. If you take a close look, she’s got either a book, her Kindle or her Kobo—maybe all three—tucked into her bag or a pocket when she leaves the house. You know, just in case there’s time to sneak in a chapter or ten. Anne reads many genres of romance, but prefers to write sexy stories, often with a dash of humor, and usually with a side of those sinful pleasures your mom never told you about.

Oh, and always a happily ever after.

While embarking on this wild journey of becoming a romance author, Anne juggles a full time job and a family. Not always successfully. Who needs a clean house every day? And what’s wrong with cereal for dinner? She lives in Ontario, Canada with her wonderfully supportive husband, three awesome kids who are growing up way too fast, and Rocky the bearded dragon.

HASH(0x99c48180) out of 5 stars A wonderful story of lost love with lots of steam Dec 9 2014
By Cyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love stories on second chances, everyone wants a second chance but not many get it. There are to many issues to make it work but sometimes people get it right and from the HEA. As in Devyn and Jacks case he walks away with the idea it is for all the right reasons. Jack wants to be a pro baseball player and Devyn wants something else. Jack walks away and makes his dreams come true, he is happy but can’t find the right women. When his career ends due to an accident he feels his life is over. His friends set him up with a blind date in Vegas, the saying goes what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. That will be hard to do since his date for the weekend is his ex high school girlfriend who he hurt in the worse way. Devyn is shocked when she walks into her room and finds Jack who was the one that got away, she isn’t ready for this now with just ending a relationship with her long time boyfriend. They were supposed to be married in summer but she found him with her boss doing the nasty. Could life get any worse, it seems so when she wakes up from a hangover only to find her high school sweetheart in his underwear on the floor and she is wearing a wedding ring. How did that happen, what in the world did she do and how can she get out of it?

The author takes you through their trip down memory lane as she gives you and wonderful read of heartbreak. They say when we get drunk we only do what we really want, if that is true did they both really want to get married and if so why are looking into how fast they can get out of it? It does seem they has one wild night, clothes flying, skin showing but oh what a mess. Boy some friends are going to be in big trouble when they get their hands on them.

The author does a wonderful job working in their past into a tight frame period. The book covers a weekend but oh what a weekend. The authors style of writing is easy to follow as she takes you through one wild night of passion. I would have liked to have read about their card game and how this came about but she fills you in with the important things. I found myself laughing along with the characters as they make their way through the dance of lost love only to find there are still feelings. What you end up with is a wonderful humorous story with lots of passion. The author gives you a story with lots of steam why she takes her character on a dance of one step forward and two steps back. Can these two get into the right two step to find they never got over each other? I found the story to be a wonderful light heartwarming read that gives you a feeling of peace as you watch these wonderful character reach for the second chance of love. I look forward to reading more from this author.
HASH(0x99c48258) out of 5 stars Home Is Always Where The Heart Is Dec 7 2014
By M. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Second chance romances are interesting. There's the past, present, and future. The characters deal mostly with the past, trying to come to terms with what happened between them, trying to fix what went wrong.

Devyn and Jack have a lot to reconcile. Their past together was warm and fuzzy and beautiful, until his career choice took him away, leaving behind a devastated Devyn. The years spent apart didn't dim the memories they'd created together. For Devyn, time didn't make her stop loving Jack either.

Their friends' intentions were good. They had Jack and Devyn's best interests in mind when they concocted their crazy scheme of hooking them up on a blind date that would last all weekend. They just didn't count on the attraction from years ago to explode into an inferno and that Jack and Devyn would act on it. Sex was one thing, but a quickie marriage wasn't in the plans at all.

I give Jack a lot of credit. He did his best to convince Devyn to stay married to him. He could have reacted differently, suggesting a divorce since an annulment was out of the question, maybe even saying they would never have anything but great sex between them. But he didn't. He wasn't stupid. He might've grieved the loss of his career by holing up in his tiny apartment, but he knew a good thing when he saw it and Devyn was a good thing.

I enjoyed this story. It's short and fast-paced, but there is a lot packed into this novella. The sex scenes are great, but the heart-to-heart moments Jack and Devyn shared were awesome. They found the strength to face one another again after so long. Their marriage was on impulse, but their willingness to stay together, build a future together, love together proved that impulse, in their case, was a great thing.

HASH(0x99c4a810) out of 5 stars A fun sports read with something for everyone Nov. 29 2014
By Lisa Karafa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It's no secret that I am a huge baseball fan. When the opportunity to read a baseball book comes about, I jump all over it. Sliding Into Home was no exception and I truly enjoyed it. There are only a couple of ways to write a sports book. One is where the sport is front and center and the other is where it is more in the background, but still important to the plot. Sliding Into Home is written in the latter and done very well too.

This fun story brings two strangers together who are at emotional crossroads in their lives. Jack is facing the need to leave his big league life behind due to a career ending injury. Devyn is looking at a bleak horizon on the dating front. She has lost faith in commitment and thinks her future will be best fulfilled by spending quality time with her BOB (battery operated boyfriend) as opposed to a man. So when conniving friends pair these two up to meet in Vegas for the weekend, neither expects what happens next.

Things I really enjoyed about this book were that Jack and Devyn were pretty realistic in their reflections on their lives. Neither wanted to be negative, but just weren't sure how to get things back on a positive track. How the relationship between the two of them progressed was fun, funny and touching. It was enjoyable to watch in unfold.

What about the baseball? It was always in the background but had a definite place in the story. There was not a big need for the author to write about it from a technical aspect, but the backstory related to the injury held the book together and propelled it forward at the appropriate pace. Whether you are a big sports fan or not, this book was a pleasant surprise with a great mix of sexy, humor and self discovery.

My Review: 4 Stars: A steamy tale of passion rekindled
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
I was quite enamored with this tale. The set up of the story draws you in. Jack is an injured baseball player who gets sent to Las Vegas for a blind date with the "perfect girl for him" (at least according to his brother). When Jack discovers it is his high school girlfriend, he contemplates abandoning her, but something makes him ask her to stay. The story that unfolds keeps you captivated and also provides some delightful scenes that will wet your panties. Jack is quite tasty, and he doesn't give off the typical jock vibe that can be annoying. He is quite down to earth, and that makes you love him all the more. He might have spent the previous four months wallowing in self pity, but you don't have to deal with that part of his story in the book, and I was quite grateful for that. I am not sure I could handle hearing a grown man whine incessantly about how his career was ruined. Devyn is a girl you can relate to and understand her predicament. She ditched her cheating fiance, and her girlfriends take her to Vegas for some fun. When she is confronted with the man that left her to pursue his career a decade prior, you can relate to her inner conflict to just leave. The book is fun to read. It doesn't weigh you down with a ton of history/back story, but you get just enough to feel a connection with the characters and to feel their connection to each other. Of course, my complaint about the story, is that I longed for more. More Jack, More Devyn, More Steamy bedroom moments. I will definitely read other books that follow in this series.
