Overview

Is love is better the second time around?

With a bad marriage behind her and the note on her horse ranch coming due, young widow Katherine Logan has neither the time nor the inclination to save a low-down bandit, until the sight of wickedly tempting Jake Banner changes her mind. Taking advantage of a local custom, she saves him from the hangman's noose, but Jake's secrets run deeper than the crime that put him there.

Though the War Between the States is over, the tension in Missouri still runs high. Former Confederate soldiers have banded together to form outlaw gangs--robbing trains, stages and banks. Second Chance, Missouri stands right in the center of all the action. Jake and Katherine find themselves drawn into the wildness of the west and the temptation of each other.

Can they save Katherine's ranch and round up the bad guys, even as they fall in love?

About the Author

Lori Handeland is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with more than 60 published works of fiction to her credit. Her novels, novellas, and short stories span genres from paranormal and urban fantasy to historical and contemporary romance and, most recently, women’s fiction. Just Once (Severn House, January 2019), her women’s fiction debut, is a richly layered novel about two women who love the same man, how their lives intertwine, and their journeys of loss, grief, sacrifice, and forgiveness.

Lori set her sight on being an author at the age of ten. She remembers sitting at a typewriter before she knew how to type, pecking out a story about a family who went into space. As an only child, her summers were spent with that typewriter, television, and, above all, books. She recalls thinking that if she could write books of her own, she would never run out of books to read. As a young adult, she got sidetracked by the need to make a living. She worked as a waitress and later enrolled in college to become a teacher.

While student teaching, Lori started reading a life-changing book, How to Write a Romance and Get It Published. Within its pages the author, Kathryn Falk, mentioned Romance Writers of America. There was a local chapter; Lori joined it, dived into learning all about the craft and business, and got busy writing a romance novel. With only five pages completed, she entered a contest where the prize was having an editor at Harlequin read her first chapter. She won.

Lori sold her first novel, a western historical romance, in 1993. In the 26 years since then, she has written eleven novels in the popular Nightcreature Novels, five installments in the Phoenix Chronicles, six works of contemporary romance about the Luchettis, a duet of Shakespeare Undead novels, and many more books. Her fiction has won critical acclaim and coveted awards, including two RITA Awards from Romance Writers of America for Best Paranormal Romance (Blue Moon) and Best Long Contemporary Category Romance (The Mommy Quest), a Romantic Times Award for Best Harlequin Superromance (A Soldier’s Quest), and a National Reader’s Choice Award for Best Paranormal (Hunter’s Moon).

Lori lives in Southern Wisconsin with her husband. In between writing and reading, she enjoys long walks with their rescue mutt, Arnold, and occasional visits from her two grown sons and perfectly adorable grandson.

She saves him................................................................................................. Then he saves her. And of course in the end they save each other. Not everyone is whom they seem to be. Some interesting background characters add to the mix. Great story

Impetuous widow Katherine Logan's rescue of Jake Banner starts a series of scandalous and harrowing events. Aiding Katie's efforts to save her Circle A ranch, Jake has to balance his growing love for her along with completing the undercover (no pun intended) job he was sent to her town to do. This is the first novel I've read by this author, and I plan to purchase others.
