Second Chance
A Contemporary Romance Novel
By Suzi Macdonald
Release Date: October 17, 2016
Keywords: Contemporary Romance, Second Chances, Reunion, First Love, Decisions, Family

Teige Adams fell for the dazzling Alexandra “Zani” Fairmichael in high school, but Zani was far too sophisticated to fall for a tall, geeky misfit like Teige. Twenty years later, he is a successful photographer with a string of glamorous ex-girlfriends behind him, and Zani has become plain Allie Brown, the mother of demanding teenage twins.
When Teige discovers Allie has separated from her husband and is moving back to their hometown, he is determined to try for a second chance at the girl he never had. But Allie, on the rebound from a difficult marriage, isn’t certain what (or who) she wants. Plus, Teige’s slightly unhinged ex-fiancée and Allie’s soon-to-be-ex-husband have their own ideas about who Teige and Allie should be with. And then there is Katie, who is certain Teige is “The One” for her.
Will Teige finally win Allie’s heart – or is it too late for a second chance?
Review:
A nice romance story about a couple, who have a second chance at love. Zani and Teige are two attractive characters, you’re intrigued by from the start. They bring out the best of each other. Teige finds the woman he’s been searching for, as for Zani she starts to find the old, fun-loving woman she once was.
However, the couple faces their fair share of drama when both their exes causes trouble.
Second Chance is a great story with lots of romance, drama, and an occasional dash of humor.

The Sanctum by Pamela King Cable

Today I am happy to share about this wonderful new work of Southern Fiction – Pamela King Cable’s THE SANCTUM.

The Sanctum cover

Buy on Amazon|Goodreads

On a November day in 1946, Neeley McPherson turned five years old and accidentally killed her parents. Thrown into the care of her scheming and alcoholic grandfather, she survives by her quick wit, and the watchful eye of an elderly black man, Gideon. In 1959, as equal rights heats up the South, authorities accuse Gideon of stealing a watch and using a Whites Only restroom. Neeley, now thirteen, determines to break him out of jail.

The infamous Catfish Cole, Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon of the Carolinas, pursues Neeley and Gideon in their courageous escape to the frozen Blue Ridge Mountains. After Gideon’s truck hits ice and careens down a steep slope, they travel on foot through a blizzard, and arrive at a farm of sorts—a wolf sanctuary, where Neeley crosses the bridge between the real and the supernatural. On this cascading landscape she discovers her grandfather’s deception, confronts the Klan, finds her faith in God, and uncovers the shocking secrets of the family who befriends her.

Set in a volatile time in America when the winds of change begin to blow, The Sanctum bestows sanctuary, invokes the healing power of second chances, and leads Neeley to tragedy once again but in doing so, grants the desire of her heart.

Today, she is still fascinated with lady bugs and fireflies, sometimes wears shoes, and talks about the day she traded in her pom-poms for a beat-up typewriter.

Pamela is a multi-published author whose novel, Televenge, attracted national attention from Fox News, CBS Atlanta, as well as book bloggers and media outlets worldwide. Writing fiction steeped in Bible-belt mystery and paranormal suspense, Pamela has gained a reputation for piercing the hearts of her readers.

AP blurb.png

The Re-release of Accidentally Perfect is like a whole new book. Get to know Nathan and Laney a little bit better with extended scenes.

 

Does perfect really exist? Can you have the perfect life, perfect love, a perfect husband? Can everything in your life be bright and sunny? That’s what Laney always wanted; something opposite of her parents’ marriage. Brad wasn’t perfect, by all means he wasn’t, but the love her daughters had for their father was close enough to perfection as Laney needed. She may not have the head-over-heels-in-love type of marriage, but it worked, or so she thought, until she finds out Brad has been banging a fellow teacher.

 

Years later, with her heart healed and lessons learned, Laney sees her then boyfriend, ass up and face down between the legs of his neighbor.

 

With too much alcohol, too much dancing, and too much meddling from her best friend, Laney finds herself in Las Vegas, waking up in the bed of a beautiful stranger with a diamond on her finger and him calling her his wife.

 

Has Laney finally found the man that’s perfect for her? Even if she found him by accident?
