Eye on the Ball

By Francine Beaton

Romance, Sports | Paperback, eBook


What would prove to be stronger? Love, or loyalty? It was World Cup Year, and top professional rugby player, Jakes du Plessis desperately wants to fulfil his childhood dream to play for the Springboks. However, to achieve his goal, he needs to adhere to the team’s strict vow of celibacy. ‘Focus, keep an eye on the ball – and stay away from women.’ What Jakes didn’t count on was a chance meeting with Angie Summers, an artist who shook him to his core and threw his well-laid plans into a tailspin. Not even his promise to his friends, teammates, over 9000 miles between them, and demons from his past could stop Jakes from falling for Angie. Unfortunately, not everything is plain sailing, and Jakes finds that it takes a team to help him overcome obstacles to find his way to his own Happily Ever After.



FRANCINE BEATON is a romance writer who lives in Pretoria with her Scottish husband and teenage daughter and Rocky the Cat. When she’s not reading or writing about love and Happy Ever Afters, she’s most likely busy painting or taking photos of everything that catches her interest. During rugby season, you’ll either find her next to the pitch or in front of the television, following her favourite teams. It’s probably not difficult to figure out why her debut novel, Eye on the Ball, as well as the series, Playing for Glory, has rugby as a theme. Whenever she gets the opportunity, she loves travelling to faraway places and considers Scotland her other home. Francine is also the author of the Taste for Love Series, a set of free-standing novels with food and drinks the binding factor. The first book in another new series, Blue Mountains, set in the heart of South Africa’s Winelands, will be released in 2018. Francine is a member of the Romance Writers Organisation of South Africa (ROSA), the Romantic Novelist Association (RNA) and the Romance Writers of America (RWA).
