SERIES SPOTLIGHT: Love’s Second Chance Series
Love’s Second Chance, Book 1
It’s been a year since Sophie lost her husband and daughter in a car wreck but time hasn’t healed her wounds. A desperate choice leads her to Trevor, the handsome stranger who saves her life and leaves her wanting more than just a few steamy kisses.
Trevor is content living the fast-paced life of a successful NYC entrepreneur. The last kind of complication he needs is a troubled woman like Sophie. But he’s immediately drawn to her even if his bachelor instincts scream for him to run.
As Sophie struggles to fight her growing feelings for Trevor, she’s torn between her past and the future. Somehow, she has to find the strength to finally let go and move on with a man who is everything she never thought she wanted.
Love’s Second Chance, Book 2
After a wild weekend of passion on a business trip, Claire discovers she’s pregnant with her boss’s baby. It wouldn’t be such a big deal—if Logan wasn’t the world’s most arrogant jerk. She decides to keep the pregnancy a secret, even if it means losing her job.
It doesn’t take long for Logan to realize what’s going on and he isn’t happy Claire tried to hide the truth. To make matters worse, he and Claire can’t seem to agree on anything other than the insane attraction that keeps sparking between them. One minute they can’t stand to be in the same room and the next, they can’t keep their hands to themselves.
Even as their mutual attraction heats up, both are determined to guard their hearts. Claire can’t make sense of Logan’s hot-then-cold personality and Logan wants more from Claire than she’s willing to give. Just when they begin meeting each other halfway, outside interference threatens to tear them apart forever.
Love’s Second Chance, Book 3
Wynne Carter’s one-night-stand with Hollywood bad boy Derek Shaw resulted in life-changing consequences in the form of her precious daughter. Years later, she isn’t prepared to face him or his questions when he returns to her small town seeking answers.
With his acting career on hiatus thanks to his wild past, discovering he has a daughter is reason enough for Derek to stick around. Spending timing with her mom isn’t too shabby either, and soon he can’t keep Wynne or her long legs off his mind.
Wynne knows a man like Derek is made for sin, not happily-ever-afters, but resisting him proves pretty darn impossible. For a while, it looks as if the unlikely pairing of the single mom and the heartthrob might make it after all. Until Hollywood wants its leading man back, and their new relationship threatens to fall apart forever.
How would you describe Love’s Second Chance Series to someone who has not read any of your previous work?
These contemporary romances are all about second chance romances in small-town settings.
Which part of researching Win My Love was the most personally interesting to you? Were there any facts or themes that you would have liked to include, but they just didn’t make into the story?
Researching addiction was an important part of this story, because Derek is someone who has battled those demons and I wanted to accurately portray his struggles. This was one of those books that just seemed to click for me—nothing was left on the cutting room floor.
What are you reading right now? Are there any authors (living or dead) that you would name as influences?
Right now, I’m re-reading a Kendall Grace book called Southern Exposure. It’s an awesome read, and a little birdie told me she’s working on a sequel. One of my biggest influences in writing is Geoffrey Chaucer, but I also admire Anthony Trollope and many others.
What was the book that most influenced your life — and why?
I don’t think I can narrow it down to one book, but I can absolutely say that romance novels have influenced my life the most. They taught me a lot about myself, both as a person and a writer.
If you had a book club, what would it be reading — and why?
If I had a book club, it would be reading old romances from the 80s and 90s because there are so many wonderful books from that time, and we often forget them in the digital age if backlists haven’t been reissued.
How personal is your writing?
My writing is personal without getting too personal. I embed little inside jokes for those who know me—perhaps names or dialogue—but never a major life event. My characters evolve on their own.
Who designed the covers?
The infinitely talented cover artists at Ellora’s Cave.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
An author, of course.
Do you ever write naked? 😉
I can’t say I have. I’m not sure my dog would approve, but my husband probably would. 🙂
Who would play you, in a film of your life?
Oh, I’m much too boring for anyone to make a film of my life!
