    A terrific & beautiful love story

    Second Chances by Tess St. John is a beautiful story of the healing power of love, with just enough danger and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat. Emma, Lady Easton, is kind, proud, and strong. She's been nursemaid to her elderly husband, Harmon, for five years. He'd rescued her from marriage to a cruel man, a man her father had chosen. Emma is joined at Harmon's death bed by Lord Drake, a man who has been like a son to Harmon. To further protect Emma from her heartless father who will again try to force her into marriage, Harmon asks Lord Drake to marry Emma. Both Lord Drake, who is mourning the death of his wife two years earlier, and Emma refuse. During the course of the story, as Lord Drake fights to protect Emma from her father, Emma and Drake fall in love. Drake is still suffering over the loss if his wife and feels guilt that he can love another woman. Emma is afraid to acknowledge her love for Drake. She fears he still loves his wife. Because Emma is not yet 21, her father tries to take control over her life. He has already found another husband for her, an older man who will pay a lot of money for Emma. But Emma will not let her father control her. She fights for her independence, and for the freedom to marry the man she chooses. The setting of Second Chances, the English countryside, peopled with lords and ladies, is engaging. The unfolding love story and the trust that develops between Drake and Emma is heartwarming. Second Chances grabbed me from the first page. This is the first book in the Chances Are series. I can't wait to read the others.

    It was okay. Had a Gothic-undertone that I found intriguing because I grew up reading the genre. The author's transitions were a bit jerky, and we get into the heads of characters that are unnecessary to the story. But all in all, a pleasant read.

    Worth it

    I had never read Tess St John prior to this. I was pleasantly surprised. I read Emma's Chance first and couldn't wait to read more. Harmon is a wonderful character and though, like most romance novel heroes, Drake tends to be a bit silly, he is also a good character. Our heroine, Emma, though young and inexperienced, is not foolish. This is a light enjoyable read.

    Second Chances is a wonderful historical romance! it is well written and never drags. The action and the drama start right away and it just carries you along for the ride. I couldn't put it down! As soon as I finished I had to get the next book: Chance for Freedom. I will be keeping an eye on Tess St. John!

    The ending was rushed. The book was amazing. The entire time u were thinking what was going to happen next. The only bad thing I guess was there was only one love sean and emma was promised the time would be better, but there wasnt a next time.

    Tender and sweet budding love

    I really enjoyed this 575 page story about Emma and Drakes chance for both their hearts to be free to love. So much family discord, betrayal, and sadness makes you hope for Emma and Drakes happiness. Great read and recommended.
