Making the Most of second chances
I grieved and spent a lot of time crying because I was so sad about it being over but even then I knew that I wasn’t giving up on love. I had faith that I would love again and that I’d find someone who wanted to be with me.
When I was ready I spent time reflecting on what did and didn’t work in my last relationship and what I might do differently next time around. I looked at what I could do about my fears and personal issues that got in the way of my relationship and I had counselling to help me navigate my way to healthier thinking.
Then I set out to find someone, I began internet dating and met some very nice men but they weren’t the right ones for me. I kept trying and eventually I met Sam. He came into my life at a time that was perfect to show me he was capable of being with me and that my health issues (what I feared most would scare a man away) didn’t faze him for a second.
I did a blog post about how we met. It’s called ‘A Little Christmas Romance’. He moved in with me last year and this year we bought a fixer upper house together and have done it up. He’s my second chance at love and I call him my Happily Ever After.
I suppose second chances are why I love reunion stories. My second chance story called ‘The Italian Billionaire’s Secret Baby’ is about a couple who broke up because they weren’t ready to take on the responsibility of being parents together. Only Katrina was up to the task of being a parent and so she decided she’d raise her baby alone. Her two fathers had given her no reason to believe any man would care about her. Both dismissed her needs and when Alessandro (a man she truly loved) did that also, she gave up.
I wanted so much to prove to Alessandro how wrong he’d been and to learn how to be the man Katrina needs. He doesn’t get it straight away of course but his passion for Katrina turns to love. That combined with meeting his dear little toddler son makes him go the extra mile to get it right this time.
I hope you like my new cover for the book. There’s a second chance story in how this came into being also. I had a cover that I thought was very nice and even did a cover reveal on social media. A writer friend was concerned that I didn’t have a cover that really fits my sexy genre so she reached out to help. At first I was hesitant, having already done a reveal but then I thought, this is a second chance to get it right so I accepted her kind offer with gratitude.
She not only redid this cover but also one for my first book in this series too. The covers are so amazing and much better than I could have imagined. I want to thank Fiona Miers for her generosity in giving her time and for the gift of commissioning the covers on my behalf. I’m so grateful for her help. Fiona also has a billionaire book coming out next month and it’s available for pre order right now.
It’s called ‘Her Billionaire Stepbrother’. So if you love billionaire stories, November is a great month for you.
My book “The Italian Billionaire’s Secret Baby” will also be released next month and is available for pre-order now on Amazon at 99 cents until the release date on November 14th and it will then be $2.99.
Happy reading and remember to always be ready to jump on a second chance.

My whole life is inspired by romance. I write romance novels of course but also love creating DIY's and decorating in a romantic style. I'm rejuvenating an old garden, including rescuing a couple of old rose bushes and planting new ones.
