Product Description

Uber-spy, Andrew Oliver is used to making an impact on people's lives. The MI6 agent has worked for over twenty years to keep his country and its allies safe. So when he meets and falls in love with his friend's sister, he's more than ready to change both their lives.

Beth Bennett is not sure about so many changes all at once. However, Andrew can be very persuasive, and she agrees to marrying him and move to London. She's also accepted a job working as a liaison between the CIA and MI6. But then, espionage is the family business.

She's already trying to pretend she doesn't know about Andrew's poltergeist -- who delights in playing childish tricks on him. So, Beth is not at all happy when someone from her own past comes back to haunt her.

The trouble is, he's supposed to be dead.

Excerpt

Blind terror washed over her.

She trembled as she thrashed her head around, screaming, "No. No! Never!" She jumped up and headed for the backdoor, almost knocking Andrew over as she went.

She felt flushed and wasn't able to catch her breath. It was as if all the oxygen had been sucked from the air around her. There had been a frost that morning, and the air was still cold, but she wasn't aware of any of it as she ran.

She heard the dogs whimpering at the door, as if they felt her pain. Andrew must have let them out, for they raced out to her and ran ahead, just as she passed through the opening in the stone wall and out into the field beyond.

Winded, she slowed to a brisk walk, but stopped at the outcropping of rocks. She sat down hard and allowed the Golden Retrievers to lean against her and compete for attention. Petting them was easier than thinking about what had just happened -- what she'd just done.

She hadn't meant to hurt him.

His question had blindsided her and she'd reacted without thinking. She'd assumed he understood the way she felt. She thought he knew how she couldn't allow herself to 'belong' to someone. Never again would she relinquish her authority -- never give up control of her body or mind.

She gathered the dogs around her and took in great gulps of air, until she was able to breathe more easily. She hadn't realized she was wearing the ring until the sunlight caught the cluster of diamonds, sending a reflection into her eyes. She looked at it for the first time and thought how truly lovely a thing it was. How like Andrew to have chosen something so very beautiful.

She twisted the platinum band a bit so she could study it. The main gem was a large, emerald cut, blue white diamond, flanked by two equally perfect baguettes. There was no denying it was perfect.

If only it wasn't meant as an engagement ring. She would have to give it back.

  1. 007 with Heart! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2013

    I loved book one in the Duty with Honor series and couldn't wait for book two to come out. I must say it was well worth the wait! Bollinger writes a dynamic story that picks up right where book one left off. The romance between Beth and Andrew is both tender and a true example of real life romance. There's no slam bam thank you ma'am. Bollinger has a definite talent for capturing the heart of genuine romance. I look forward to how their continuing romance develops as the series progresses. Oh and before I forget, the spy subplots heighten the suspense and keep you riveted to the screen. With Second Chances, Bollinger crafts a story of international intrigue on par with the greats.This is 007 with heart!

    If you're looking for a story that will sweep you away with suspense, spies and romance that demands your attention Second Chances is the total package!
