My Top Five Second Chance Romances

With: RC Boldt

Congratulations to "Ami S.", the winner in RC's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

My November release, He Loves Me…KNOT, is the story of Emma Jane Haywood who skips out on her own wedding only to discover, eight years later, her new boss is none other than her former fiancĂ© at the altar. Since this is a second chance romance, I thought I’d revisit my all-time favorite books which are also the same trope.

My Top Five Second Chance Romances:

·       The Darkest Hour by Maya Banks
·       The Choices I’ve Made by J.L. Berg
·       Jilted by Sawyer Bennett
·       Love Story by Lauren Layne
·       Wild Card by Lora Leigh

My favorite part about second chance romances is the angst the reader feels, the way we cross our fingers and toes in hopes that the characters will be able to mend their differences, to heal their emotional wounds, and move on to finally—FINALLY—gain their own happily ever after. I love the continuous push and pull, the tumultuous and conflicting emotions the characters often feel in books like these. In He Loves Me…KNOT, both Emma Jane and Knox experience this ten-fold as they acclimate to their lives intertwining once again, with unfinished business hovering amidst them.


Sometimes love needs a second chance…

I never looked back after skipping out on my own wedding, even if it did leave me estranged from most of my family. Eight years later, I have the life I’ve always wanted. As an advertising account executive, my world is damn near perfect.

Until I come face-to-face with my past. With the man I once loved. The man who holds my future in his hands. The man who’s hell-bent on getting even with me for leaving him at the altar.

Even with all the unfinished business between us, I still love Knox Montgomery. The only problem?

He loves me…KNOT.
