One More Second Chance by Jana Richards ♥ Book Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Contemporary Romance)

Dr. Alex Campbell has an agenda—finish his contract to provide medical services in Maine, pay off his medical school debt, and head back to his real life in San Diego. But when he meets Julia, all his carefully laid plans are put in jeopardy.

Julia Stewart, Lobster Cove’s high school principal, swears she’ll never let another man drag her away from the home she loves. Her aging parents need her, and the Cove is where she wants to raise her daughter. When her mother’s illness brings her and the big city doctor closer together, panic sets in. Her marriage taught her men don’t stay.

Can she put aside the heartaches of the past and trust Alex enough to accept the love he’s offering? Or will her fear of abandonment mean she’ll send him away forever?
Julia felt soft lips against her forehead, and smelled a familiar aftershave. She smiled, her eyes still closed, her mind still drifting somewhere between sleep and wakefulness.

“Alex.”

“Good morning, baby.”

He kissed again, this time on her lips. She wanted to stay in this room with Alex for the rest of the night, lying in his arms and feeling warm and safe. But something niggled at her sleep-deprived brain, something he said… “Morning?”

She struggled to open her eyes. Alex sat on the edge of her bed, smiling down at her, a full night’s growth of beard on his chin. It just made him look sexier.

“It’s seven a.m. You were sleeping so peacefully, I hated to wake you, but I know you have to get ready for school.”

Julia pushed herself to a sitting position, then rubbed the sleep from her eyes. “You were supposed to wake me at two.”

He gave a negligent shrug. “So sue me. You needed to sleep.”

“My mom—”

“She’s fine. She and your dad are in the kitchen having breakfast.”

“Did she get up during the night?”

“Once. I woke up when she wandered into the living room. I helped her to the bathroom and put her back to bed, and she slept until a few minutes ago.”

“You must be so tired.”

“I slept, on and off, on the sofa, like you have the last couple of weeks.”

She knew from experience his sleep couldn’t have been very restful, with one eye open to watch for her mother. The lumpy old sofa didn’t help, either.

“I don’t know what to say to you, except ‘thank you.’ Now go home and get some sleep.”

He grinned, reaching out his hand to caress her face. His thumb idly rubbed the tender skin beneath her eye. Julia stared into his eyes. She’d give anything to be able to wake up with Alex every morning, to love him every day.

Finally, he dropped his hand. “I should go and let you get ready for school.”

“Thanks again, Alex. Sleep well.”

He rose to his feet but didn’t leave the room. For a moment they stared at each other. Julia knew the longing in his eyes must also be reflected in hers. At last he turned and left her room, closing the door softly behind him.
       
  
When Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun, she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things” was a 2008 EPPIE finalist.

In her life away from writing, Jana is an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren. She enjoys golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. She and her husband live in Winnipeg, Canada with their Pug/Terrier cross Lou and several unnamed goldfish. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at www.janarichards.com
