Solace (Love and Second Chances Book One)

A second chance romance about friendship, new beginnings, and putting the pieces back together.

Two years after my divorce I’m ready to push through the pain. Either I pick up the reins of my life now, or let go forever.

I didn’t expect to cross paths with Rae—in a chat room of all places. She was my first love, who I met in college. Ten years ago, I walked away from us at a time when she needed me. Unfortunately, now I know how that feels.

My first instinct is to run—it would be too easy to fall in love again. Too easy for my heart to break. But now that she’s back in my life, I’m truly grateful for her friendship, even though she’s far away.

Real love has evaded me since Lindsay, my first love and the girl I left behind. It’s been a string of friends with benefits—I give my body but never my heart.

But my second chance has come, and the girl I loved is now a woman with a broken heart. She’s a shadow, and everything in me yearns to coax her back to life.

That’s why I’m inviting her to stay with me in Ireland. I think she could use a break away to let the past go and find some healing. I suspect the demons of her past won’t let her go so easily, but I’ll do what I can to help her find happiness again.

Gravity (Love and Second Chances Book Two)

A love like a force of nature. A second chance. Their last chance.

I was drawn to Caroline from the day we met, but we overwhelmed each other’s lives.
Caroline consumed me.
Her beauty, her vivacious light, her deep red hair, her… everything.
I wasn’t ready to deal with the intensity of our relationship and my own feelings for her, so I forced myself to walk away.
I regretted it and I still do.
Without her, it was as though my world was drained of colour and life.
I’ll always regret leaving her and losing the love we shared. I’ll always miss her whirlwind presence in my life.
Unless I get her back, and convince her to take a chance on me one last time.

I’m not good at relationships. They don’t work out; not for me. My first and only true love left me.
My other relationships since then have been mere imitations of what I had with her. Reminders that she’s still inside me, making me want her.
Ten years have passed.
Easy years? No.
Healthy years? No.
But now I’m a better me. A healthier me.

I lost myself in love once, and I can’t do that again.
I have a new life. I have new balance.
And now… I have her. Ivy’s back in my life. Just like that; delivered on a sunbeam.
I mustn’t lose myself again. Not like before, but I’ll take a chance on love again if it’s for Ivy.

Beloved (Love and Second Chances Book Three)

Beloved by Cailee Francis

Confronting the past isn’t always easy, especially when you’ve made the biggest mistake of your life.

Aisling and I were engaged to be married. I loved her, and I couldn’t imagine life without her by my side. But everything changed when I received a letter out of the blue telling me she was cheating on me.

I’d never had reason to doubt her, but it placed fears in my heart. Unfortunately, that was what the letter’s sender wanted.

It seemed the start of a story I’d heard too many times before, and I took some time away to consider our future together. By the time I returned a few days later, it was too late.

Years have passed since I ended my relationship with Lauren, but now I’ve found out who sent the letter that destroyed our relationship. I find myself questioning whether I should contact her again. Is it too late to give her another chance?

Her social media accounts say she’s single, but I don’t know if there’s someone else in her life now or how she feels about me.

Is it too late to re-discover what might’ve been?
