There is always the one that got away. It’s hard to forget them even when we’ve moved on for the better. But everyone wonders, what would happen if they had one more opportunity?
How often we see that the romances in second chance were high school sweethearts. Well even I’ll admit, it took me twenty years to figure out why that guy from high school wasn’t compatible. Twenty some years later, would it be different now that I understand that I was an open book and he was a closed one? (Of course I’m the happiest married person I know…so we shall live vicariously through characters in books!)
As an author the appeal of writing second chance romances is that the characters already have a history. They know each other's ins and outs. They can relate. Something new to the reader can be familiar to the characters.
To date, my favorite second chance romance that I’ve written is about a husband and wife that grew apart, but that flame was always there. When he finally moves on, she discovers she has breast cancer. They share three children, so he’s going to want to be supportive. Talk about history! But, it will still be my favorite book that I wrote, because I too am a sucker for finding happily ever after with that one that got away—even if it might have been a spouse.

Russell Walker’s life was spared when his truck veered off the road and flipped. When he wakes after surgery, he can only assume the medicines are making him see things, because the woman he loved—who broke his heart—is taking his vitals.
Chelsea Quinn has spent the past four years keeping clear of Russell Walker after she married another man and had a baby. Now she is thrust back into his life as his caretaker, and living with his family when her ex-husband is let out of prison.
Some heartbreaks are too severe to recover from, and Russell is fighting every feeling he has as not to get his heart broken again. But sometimes the pull of love is just too strong, especially when the lives of those you love are threatened, and someone is looking for revenge.


Russell reached for her and she quickly glanced out the window used for observation. “What can I do for you, Mr. Walker?"
“Stay for a little bit. I’d like to talk."
“I have rounds to make. I can’t spend any time in here talking. If you’d be more comfortable, I could ask to be transferred to another unit."
His world was fuzzy again, but he wasn’t done. “No, I don’t want that at all. I owe you an apology. I want to give that to you."
She turned to the computer at his bedside, scanned her ID tag, and then entered something with her back turned to the window.
“Russ, I hate to see you in here like this, but something tells me you deserved it."
“That’s a horrible thing to say."
She gave him a grunt. “You got in a fight at a bar before you flipped your truck because you’d been drinking."
“I wasn’t drunk,” he defended.
“Maybe not, but your mouth was getting you in trouble, which says to me, nothing has changed.” She tucked one of those loose strands of blonde hair behind her ear, a sign that she was nervous. “If you’re sincere about talking, I’ll come back when my shift is over."
“I’d like that,” he said, but his tongue felt as though it filled his mouth and didn’t sound right. “I’m sorry,” he said slurring his words.
“They gave you something to manage your pain. You will probably sleep a lot."
His eyelids grew heavy again, but he forced them back open.
“I love you, Chelsea,” he managed before he couldn’t open them again.
