Synopsis:Korinne Anders had it all. She had the perfect job, the perfect house, and the perfect husband. When tragedy strikes, her world takes a devastating turn. Six months after losing her husband to a car accident, Korinne vows it to herself never to love again. If she doesn’t allow another man in her heart, then there’s no reason for her to feel the pain of loss. This plan seems to work, but is put to the test when Korinne’s best friend can’t stand to see her suffering any longer.
Korinne’s long-time friend, Jenna Perry, has an idea and it involves helping her friend find the spark of life in her soul no matter what it takes. Korinne didn’t know that Jenna’s plan meant bringing back a past love, a second chance with the man that Korinne had to leave in college, but always kept a place for in her heart.
When Galen Matthews learns of Korinne’s loss and that she’s finally moved back home, he wants nothing more than to be there for her. The love he felt for Korinne years ago has never left him, and now he’s given a second chance to not only mend her heart of her loss, but to also continue the love they shared in the past. Will his love and determination make her strong enough to give fate a second chance, or will her fear of losing another love make her run away?
What will Korinne do when she’s faced with a love so powerful that no matter what she does there’s nowhere to run from it?
What are your opinions/experiences with love and second chances and how it works with novels?
I love everything having to deal with second chances. I think we all have had some experience with second chances in our lives. When I wrote Love’s Second Chance I kind of based it on my experiences in life. However, I didn’t have a husband that passed away. I wanted something that was raw and emotional in my book and I think I pulled it off. I broke down when I wrote the prologue just because the situation was absolutely heart breaking. I hope that I’ll never have to endure that in my life.
I did meet my husband in a situation similar to what Galen and Korinne experience in Love’s Second Chance. Korinne’s best friend, Jenna, brings them back together after spending many years apart after they separated in college. I didn’t know my husband in college, but my best friend (and now sister in law) introduced me to him at a party. She ended up marrying my husband’s brother which is similar to Jenna and Brady in Love’s Second Chance.
I mention the mountains a lot in LSC, and that’s because my husband and I LOVE the mountains. It’s our escape. I made it Galen’s and Korinne’s too. My mother read LSC and she thought it was funny how I implemented my own life in it. She said she would bust out laughing each time she came across a scene that she remembered happening in my life. All in all, this book hit really close to my heart. I enjoyed writing it, and knowing it reflects my life has made it all the more special.
I am an avid reader that loves my collection of books. Writing has always been a passion of mine and now I am glad that I get to share my passion with the world. I live in
and I absolutely love being a
southern girl. I spent several years in college starting out with a major in
Psychology and then switching to dental. I worked in the dental field for eight
years and then decided to stay home with my two beautiful girls. I spent the
beginning of my reading years reading suspense thrillers, but now I can't get
away from the paranormal/fantasy books. I knew ever since then that if I wrote
anything it would be in a paranormal aspect. Now that I have started on my passion
and began writing, you will not see me go anywhere without a notebook and pen. North Carolina
With each determined step, I made my way over to the man that was beginning to steal my heart … again. Fear and desire coincided within me, but I couldn’t stop. I knew I shouldn’t let him in, but I couldn’t deny the way my heart was beating for this man. It was as if all of my desires, all of the pent up emotions and feelings in my body had me desperate for this man’s touch, Galen’s touch. The man I fell in love with years ago. His eyes grew wider the closer I got, but I knew I wasn’t going to back down. I needed to feel him in every way possible, and I needed it then. In one swift move I crushed my lips to his and wrapped my arms around his neck, holding him tight. His arms engulfed me, protecting me in his embrace, but also unsure of what to do.
“What are you doing?” he groaned, breaking away from the kiss. “I thought you wanted to take things slow.”
A fire so hot burned behind those pale blue eyes of his, and I knew taking things slow wasn’t going to happen. “I don’t think I can,” I breathed against his lips.
“Please don’t say that. I don’t think I can control myself if you let me in. I’ve wanted you from the moment I saw you, and it’s already hard enough to keep my distance.”
“I don’t want you to keep your distance.” I sighed. “I need you, Galen, and I need you now.” Those words were all it took for the fire to consume him, to consume us both.
