Overview

Sometimes we’re lucky enough to get that second chance – in life and in love. That Second Chance Series are stand-alone stories of strong women who battle heartache and loss with a courage and determination to find new paths and true love. What ties them together? A common theme: belief in the beauty of that second chance.

Pulling Home is Book One of That Second Chance Series. It is also the prequel to Mary’s bestselling family saga, A Family Affair: The Promise, Truth in Lies, Book Seven.

She'll risk anything to save her child...even the truth.

It's taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She's created the perfect life: a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and the man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

Jack Wheyton is a successful pediatric neurosurgeon who is about to become engaged when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter. He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn't even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story...and forgetting her? Near impossible.

When a shattering illness strikes Audra's daughter, she turns to Jack to save her child and risks exposing a secret that will change their lives forever.

Jack hugged his aunt, relieved for the few extra seconds before he had to confront his brother's wife. When the Heaven Scent threatened to send him into a sneeze attack, he eased from his aunt's grasp and pecked her cheek. "I know, Aunt Ginny, I know." Then he straightened and faced her.

She wasn't nineteen anymore, that was damn sure. Her breasts filled the pink sweater and he could guess at the tell-tale signs of ample cleavage rimming her bra, despite the absence of a neckline. His eyes were trained in female body parts which had nothing to do with his medical expertise. Jack knew women's bodies, knew how to please them, knew how to drive them wild.

He'd known how to do both to her. Seven weeks of pure lust. He'd never told a soul about it. Had she? He glanced down which proved another fatal mistake as he caught a glimpse of thigh. Were her legs still strong and toned--like they were when she used to wrap them around his back?

"Jack," Aunt Virgina interrupted his less than brotherly thoughts, "this is Audra Valentine." She paused. "Christian's wife."

There it was, thrown right back in her face. Audra Valentine, the girl from the wrong side of town. In his family's eyes, she would always be a Valentine first, a Wheyton, second. Jack lifted his gaze and met hers. Huge mistake. Horrible. Disastrous. She still had the most entrancing eyes, like whiskey burning his throat all the way to the lining of his gut. Right now those eyes were staring at him and through him. "Audra." Somehow he managed to slide her name through his lips without heaving. "I'm very sorry." Sorry I had to see you again. Sorry I ever touched you in the first place. Sorry I compare every woman I'm with to you.
