A Second Chance (Contemporary Romance)

Lucien Pereli spent the last five years paying his dues to society. He is ready to move on from the past and start his life anew. However, he quickly learns it isn’t as easy as he thought and his past actions come with a price.

Raina Carstens has been through a great deal in her life, but she has moved on from her grief. She now has a successful cafe and strives to help any she can. But can she help her intimidating, and rather handsome, new employee?

*A special thank you to Magpie Magazine for allowing me to publish the first few chapters in their publication! I am so grateful for you for giving Lucian and Raina’s story it’s first publication!
