Spotlight, Excerpt & Giveaway: Star Spangled Second Chance by Christie Logan

 

Star Spangled Second Chance by Christie Logan 

They were best friends before he left town without a word. Now he's back. Will her heart be broken again? Good girl Portia Phillips always followed the rules, colored inside the lines and walked the straight and narrow. Only her best friend Raymond Alessio could ever get her to quit being "perfect Portia" for a minute and take a risk. Portia fell in love with Raymond way back in fourth grade. That love only grew stronger as years passed, but she kept it hidden, until one Fourth of July when she finally had the courage to share her feelings. That was the night he broke her heart. Since then she's kept it safe, under lock and key. Now, eight years later, he's back in town with his young daughter. His life's a mess, but his love for Portia never changed. Can Raymond convince her to give him another chance? Will Portia find the courage to risk her heart a second time?

EXCERPT 

Portia stood with Raymond on Lake Verona's shore and looked out at the smooth surface of the water. "Remember the last time we were here?" he asked.

"Sure I do. You showed me how to skip stones." She picked up one of the small stones at her feet and flung it out, frowning as it landed with an ungainly plop. "Guess I lost the knack."

"It wasn't flat enough." Raymond selected another stone and handed it to her. "Try this one."

As she pulled back her arm to fling the stone, he stepped behind her and gently held her arm to guide her aim. "This way. And don't forget the little flick of the wrist just before you let go."

His touch made her feel warm and safe. Protected. She wanted to sink into his arms even though her brain told her to watch her step. With Raymond guiding her she tossed the stone, adding the wrist flick, and watched it skim the water's surface one, two, three times before disappearing. She laughed in delight and cried, "Did you see that?"

Turning in his arms, she expected to find him grinning back at her. Instead his face was serious. Her smile faded as she gazed up at him. "Raymond?" His arms closed around her and pulled her toward him.    
 
Praise for Star Spangled Second Chance 

This sweet, clean, contemporary romance is well written. I love the way the author used flashbacks to fill in the history of the couples previous relationship and things that happened to it. The characters are so likable. I look forward to reading the rest of the Holidays in Applewood series. 

Wow, what a second chance story! If you love this genre this is a must read.

Spotlight, Excerpt & Giveaway: A Gentle Heart by Christie Logan

   

A Gentle Heart by Christie Logan 

Ambitious realtor Alex has plans for his life—big plans—and getting dumped by his fiancĂ©e won't sidetrack him. He'll have to face her again at an important business function, but he won't let himself be the object of pity and scorn. What better way to show the world—and his ex— how well he's doing than to arrive with a beautiful woman on his arm? A woman he finds, of all places, behind the lingerie counter of a department store. Tyffanie has dreams that extend far beyond her sales counter, but she's been burned by men only interested in her looks. Deep inside, she's still the gawky, freckle-faced girl other kids used to tease. When handsome, successful Alex enters her life, everything changes. He's the first to look beneath the surface, respect her, and care about her hopes and dreams. Alex discovers there is so much more to Tyffanie than outward beauty. He's falling in love with her kind soul and gentle heart when he must decide how far he's willing to pursue success and all its trappings. Because his need to win at all costs may cost him Tyffanie's love.    




Excerpt from A Gentle Heart

Somehow, in spite of all their silliness, they found themselves at her building. So engrossed in her company, he hadn't realized where she'd been leading him. He accompanied her up the walkway to the stoop. The lantern beside her front door glowed yellow, illuminating her bright hair. Her cheeks were pink with cold. Were her lips cold too? He imagined warming them with his own. 

She took both his hands in hers. "Thank you for tonight, Alex. I had so much fun." 

"I should be thanking you," he said, his gloved hands holding fast to hers. "You planned the evening." He didn't want to let her go. Didn't want to say good night. It wasn't that late, was it? 

"I'm glad." She paused, gazing up at him, and for a moment he forgot to breathe. His mind went blank as he lost himself in her beautiful brown eyes. 

Then it hit him. She was waiting for him to kiss her. 

His heart thudded and for an instant he was back in time, once again an awkward sweaty fifteen year old who'd never kissed a girl.  

Quick, dummy! A voice inside him hissed. Make your move before she changes her mind.
