(First and) Last Chance of a Lifetime

November marks the release of my third novel and the conclusion of my Chances trilogy, Last Chance. When I started writing Second Chance five years ago, a trilogy was the farthest thing from my mind. Moira and Paul's story was originally part of that first novel. But as Lindsay and Brian's adventure evolved, I realized there wasn't room in the book to do Moira and Paul justice, not to mention the beauty of the Lake Tahoe winter. And since Delaney and Mike's Chance Encounter was dancing relentlessly in my head, I put Moira and Paul on hold. Now it’s their turn for Happily Ever After. I hope you're as happy to see them again as I am! Although Second Chance will always be the book of my heart and Chance Encounter was the most fun to write of the three, there is a lot of me in Moira Brody. My first chance at love became the love of my life too. And what better way to conclude the Chances trilogy than to come full circle.

 In Second Chance, star-crossed lovers Lindsay Foster and Brian Rembrandt get a second chance at love amid the brilliant blue waters of Lake Tahoe. In Chance Encounter, Delaney Richards and Mike Savoy’s quest for love takes them from Tahoe’s fawn-colored shores to the serpentine streets of San Francisco. But the heat in Last Chance comes not from the blazing summer sun and rugged, white-hot sand, but from the prurient, torrid fervor between lifelong friends Moira Brody and Paul Webster.  And even the single-digit temperatures of the Lake Tahoe winter are no match for their long-bridled desire.

Moira Brody knows Paul Webster better than he knows himself. But neither one of them know that he is as desperately in love with her as she is with him. Still, she isn't going to wait around forever. 

Or so she tells herself. 

Even on Valentine's Day.
Neither is chiseled-jaw, spring ski-tanned, broad-shouldered Jason Parker. Especially on Valentine's Day.
And when Paul finally gets out of his own way, he finds that out the hard way. And has no choice but to take matters into his own hands.
But first Paul and Moira have to do something they’ve never done before: Go on a date.
A first date that turns into a passion-filled night together, something Moira has waited a long time for.
Decades, in fact.
She has a whole lot of making up to do. And Paul is more than happy to oblige her.
As the veil between love and friendship grows increasingly thin between them, Paul lets his guarded heart fall in love with Moira.
And he might not be the only one.
But it's more complicated than that.
These lifelong friends will have to look at each other with fresh eyes and brave hearts. And not everybody is on their side. 
Including the truth. And the past. And even fate.
And when those three collide, it's only the beginning of the life-changing epiphanies.
Beneath the blinding blue sky and snow-caped peaks of the Sierras hearts will be broken, secrets revealed, choices made.
Moira will take an epic leap of faith and Paul will take the ultimate risk--again. They'll come full-circle, but there will be plenty of collateral damage along the way. 
Until they realize that their Last Chance at love was really their first.
