Second Chance Hero is the follow-up to The Heiress Games trilogy, featuring the Douglas sister who not only lost the Armington fortune, but also managed to escape the competition without falling in love.

Or so she thought...

It all starts with a new challenge...and bald cat named King Tut.

After losing the Heiress Games, Serena Douglas, has been reduced to living off the largess of a pampered pig and the benevolent graces of her childhood nemesis, Eve Bennett. Not to mention sharing the Armington mansion with three "newly-in-love" couples. It's enough to send anyone into the depths of depression. Then Serena is presented with an opportunity to win a fortune of her own. Deceased heiress, Victoria Armington, has arranged for the losers of the Heiress Games to secure a $10 million trust, including Serena's sisters, Abby and Isabella. The catch? In order to gain control of the trusts, they must all be gainfully employed. Serena is determined to get her hands on the trust. Not for herself, but for the sake of Isabella, who needs the money to fight against leukemia. All she has to do is find someone willing to hire a former heiress with no job skills. Serena's search leads to Damon Grant, the man she's been trying to forget since she was a teenager. All she has to do is convince him she can help protect a bald show cat.

Security expert, Damon Grant, nearly lost his life when a bereaved mother tried to take out the participants of the Heiress Games. He's been stuck in Palm Cove trying to recover his health and his dignity. Just when he's finally ready to escape, Damon finds himself agreeing to protect a Sphynx cat named King Tut. The hairless cat has been threatened if his owner doesn't remove him from a prestigious cat show that's being held in Palm Cove. First pampered pigs and now a naked show kitty? His reputation as world-class security expert might well be over, but he owes a favor to the Sherriff, so he'll do it. Damon never figured on hiring an assistant for the job, and certainly not pampered princess, Serena Douglas. She's been an enticing thorn in his side since he was a teenager. By rights he should hate her. She's spoiled, arrogant, and she used to torment his best friend, Eve Bennett. Still, that's never stopped him from wanting Serena, or saving her, even when it cost him everything.

As Serena and Damon work together to uncover the villain threatening King Tut, they're also working overtime to resist an attraction that's been simmering for decades. Can they overcome past pain, and Serena's past behavior, to find a second chance at love?

Serena was the spoiled rich girl in the previous books. I usually don't like the mean girl but something about her made me want her to have her own book especially when Damon showed up. The author did a great job of redeeming the mean girl IMO. Loved her and Damon together and how forgiveness was extended from to and several people. A pretty unique mystery and sweet love story. Hoping this series continues. I was given a review copy and this is my honest review.

Loved this series. It had a great premise and followed through with wonderful stories about each of the characters. This story is about the last of the single heiresses. Serene is the only one of the group to not fall in love during the competition to become a trustee to a pig. You will be laughing out loud at Serena as she tries to portray the haughty façade that has always protected her in the past. A fun and entertaining book that is well worth your time. I was given a review copy and this is my honest review.

The Ice Queen Melts. Having read the Heiress Games, I enjoyed finding out Serena’s story and the reasons why she protects herself from hurt by being sarcastic and unpleasant. Damon is the one person who can get under her skin and make her feel. When yet another challenge is thrown down by the late Victoria Armington, Serena has to find a job and pushes her way onto Damon’s local case of security for a show cat. Spending time with each other resurrects bad memories but also past feelings. Recommended book which can be read as a standalone. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
