Handsome Widower’s Second Chance
Handsome Widower’s Second Chance










Holly Anne and Adam Collins have the perfect marriage in Handsome Widower’s Second Chance.  That is, until Holly suddenly dies; Adam’s left with a broken heart and two children to raise.  However not only is Adam grieving, but his in-laws, Holly’s brother Nathan, and sister Alice, are deeply grieving.  However, Nathan’s grief takes a sad twisted turn as he blames Adam.  His grief causes him to do unspeakable things in revenge.  Alice, determined to protect the children and help Adam, aligns with him against her brother.

When Nathan kidnaps Alice and the children, she will do anything to save them.  Will Adam find Alice and the children in time?  Will Nathan’s insane grief led him on a path he can not return from?  Can love bloom between Alice and Adam?  My western romance book reviews of Handsome Widower’s Second Chance follows.


Although the feelings between Adam and Alice seem to happen quickly, the reader must realize in the pioneer west, short of women to help with the chores and the household, were scarce. This alone facilitated quick marriages. I loved the slow way Adam and Alice realized their attraction.  Of course, Adam is reluctant as Alice looks so much like Holly; he is still grieving her
