Read this gripping USA Today Bestselling Author's Second Destiny:
THE OLDER GENERATION BROKE THEM APART ...
Lia Abraham gave up everything for her family and culture—art, autonomy and even self-worth. Worst of all was the sacrifice of Bollywood-gorgeous, idealistic Devraj Shah, when Lia caved in to pressure from both their families. She broke her first love's heart by marrying the "right" Jewish man.
THE YOUNGER GENERATION REUNITES THEM ...
Nineteen years later, minutes after Lia demands a divorce from her cheating husband, her world turns upside down again; Devraj is at her door. His nephew and Lia's feisty teenage daughter are repeating history. They're in love, but the now reserved, enigmatic Devraj is dead-set against the couple's marriage plans. He is convinced Lia's daughter will ultimately reject his nephew the way Lia had rejected Devraj.
After years of feeling caged in a loveless marriage, Lia embraces her newly found freedom, and her resurgent passion for Devraj is irresistible. Once again, she surrenders to the true love of her life, but their affair re-ignites opposition from both families. Will Lia's second chance at love again destroy her loved ones and her dreams?
Torn once again between her love for Devraj, her family responsibilities and her need for true independence, will Lia choose duty over the desires of her heart?
"Second Destiny is phenomenal..."
"Beautifully written love story. The prose in this book is extraordinary, the emotions heart-breaking and the author leaves you hanging on the edge right to the end of the story. I could feel the characters' happiness, confusion, pain and sadness. When it rained, I felt that rain on me, when the characters were laughing, I laughed – it was really that good! I can't wait to read the next story in this book and will add Ms. Silk to my "must-buy" authors. Love her writing! Ms. Silk fills the pages with emotion – hope, happiness, sadness, guilt, joy – you will run the gamut with this book." Elizabeth Lennox, Author of the Thorpe Brothers.
"Gloria Silk has written a wonderful tale about cultural differences, the need for love and freedom after a life of doing and being what is expected of you. This is no cut and dried romance story; it is much more than that..." Natasha Jackson

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Wow what a great sequel to the first book. Lia ended up caving into her family's wishes and her culture, she married the "right" man that her family wanted her to be with. She lost her one and true love Devraj. It's nineteen years later now and Lia's own teenage daughter is in love with Devraj's nephew. Lia can't believe that her own story is repeating itself again. Devraj is very against the marriage because he doesn't want Lia's daughter to break his nephew's heart in the same way that Lia did to him. Lia is finally getting divorced from her husband who had cheated on her and realizes that it was the wrong decision to marry him. Lia is free from her marriage, but she doesn't know where to go next. Devraj is still on her mind and she has a thing for him. This story was so beautifully written! I was truly sucked into the story and I could not set it down. This series has been amazing and I hope that Gloria Silk will come out with more books.
Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite Second Destiny is the story of Lia and Devraj, two former sweethearts who were torn apart by duty and family obligations. Lia was expected to marry a nice Jewish man instead of the handsomely exotic Hindu named Devraj, and instead of fighting for their love she gave in to the wishes of her family. But decades later, Lia finds herself ending her marriage to the cheating “right man” when she finds out that her daughter is in love with a handsome Hindu man who happens to be the nephew of her jilted sweetheart Devraj. Gloria Silk does a wonderful job of presenting just how constrained Lia felt after putting aside her feelings and marrying someone whom her parents considered an acceptable choice, but never truly feeling happy or satisfied with her life. When Devraj shows up and is against the relationship, it is clear he fears his nephew’s heart will be broken just as his was nearly twenty years before. Second Destiny is at its heart a romance, but it is so much more than that. The cultural differences that many of us take for granted are right at the forefront of this story. Both families have problems with their loved one marrying someone from another culture and at times it borders on full-on racism, which makes it easier to root for Danielle and Sanjay and even Lia and Devraj. Gloria Silk has written a wonderful tale about cultural differences, the need for love and freedom after a life of doing and being what is expected of you. This is no cut and dried romance story; it is much more than that because the feelings that still exist may not be enough to give Lia and Devraj their happily ever after.
