How many chances does life give you to find your HEA?
First impressions ...
Ashley Taylor is a young waitress in Las Vegas when she meets charismatic billionaire Grant Morland. They spend one unforgettable weekend together before Grant’s hectic work life pulls him away.
No sooner has he gone than Ashley is summoned home by a family emergency. Then she learns about Grant’s playboy reputation, and knows better than to think she’ll ever see him again.
Second acts ...
Nine years later, their paths cross again. Grant had tried to contact Ashley soon after their encounter, only to discover she’d left town. Though he couldn’t track her down, he never forgot the sweet, sexy girl who was so different from his usual conquests.
Now that he’s finally found her again, Grant’s determined to pick up where they left off. He doesn’t care that Ashley’s a single mom. But he doesn’t know her secret -- one that would change everything between them.
And last chances ...
Their chemistry is as strong as ever, and Ashley can’t resist him … but can she trust him? Her experience with an abusive ex makes her question her judgment in men. If Grant learns what she’s hiding, will he forgive her?

This second chance love story with a hot single dad will have you swooning!
*Can be read as a standalone.*
One truth can explain everything.
Declan Kelly has spent his entire adult life saving people, all the while avoiding any real connections or emotions. He’s already been destroyed once, and after she ruined him, he knows he’ll never love again.
Almost two decades later, Declan moves back home to raise his daughter around his family. He tried to prepare himself for how he would react when he saw Amie, but could never have anticipated just how hard it would be to remain unaffected.
Amie Dotson knew from the moment she lied that Dec wouldn’t forgive her… but she didn’t want him to. Lying was easier than the truth because he would have stayed for her, and she didn’t want him to miss out on his dreams because of her.
Harboring more than one secret, Amie tries to avoid Declan when she discovers he’s back in town, but when he sees the evidence marring her body, she knows he’ll do whatever it takes to remove the fear from her eyes.
When the truth is revealed, can two people finally find the happiness they lost but never forgot?

“Where’s Clover?” God, just saying her name makes my throat tight.
“With my mom and dad for a little bit.”
“Oh.” I pick up my stuff that he set on the kitchen floor, but he shakes his head and takes it from me.
“Stop. You’re not bolting out of here.”
I huff and cross my arms. “What do you want, Declan?”
“Why are you with Larry?”
“There isn’t a reason.”
“Why did you name your daughter Clover?” I throw a question back at him.
“Don’t try to change the subject.”
“Don’t try to psychoanalyze me.”
“You know Larry’s a prick, and you’re too strong to let him put his hands on you.” Declan leans against the wall and raises an eyebrow at me. “So tell me, Amie. What the fuck?”
“I don’t owe you any explanations.”
“I think that’s the least you owe me, don’t you?”
I look around the room and avoid his eyes on me, shaking my head. “It was a long time ago, Declan,” I whisper. “I’ll go to my parents, and you can forget you ever saw me again.”
“You’re not leaving.”
I don’t understand. He hates me, so why the hell is he trying to help me? “Why do you want me here? We both know you hate me for what I said.”
He straightens and tilts his head. “It’s what you did, Amie.”
“Whatever.” I reach for my bags again, but he closes his fingers around my wrist, and I yank my arm away. “Let me go.”
“There she is.”
“I never left,” I snap. He flinches, and I know it was a low blow. I was just as excited to get out of here as he was. We were going to start a life and travel, see the world. We even had a list of places we wanted to go. Adventures we wanted to take together; scuba diving, skydiving, driving a racecar. And I ruined it.
He knows me too well, and I’m becoming defensive because he’s pissing me off, hitting nerves that I’m in denial about.
“Why are you with him?” he whispers.
“Because I deserve him.” I sit on the floor, leaning against the kitchen chair. I don’t cry because I’ve accepted my fate, and along the way to discovering it, I’ve learned that tears don’t change a damn thing.
