Second Chance Pass (A Virgin River Novel #5)
By Robyn Carr
Released 11-26-13, reissued from 02/09
Published by MIRA
Welcome back to Virgin River with the books that started it all…
The community of Virgin River saw Vanessa Rutledge through her darkest days—now she’s looking to a bright future.
In the space of a few months Vanessa buried her husband, Matt, and gave birth to their son—breaking her heart while filling it with a whole new kind of love. But the one man she longs to share this love with now acts as if she doesn’t exist.
Paul Haggerty lives by the marine motto: Semper Fi. Ever faithful to his best friend, he’s done right by Matt’s widow as best he can…considering he’s been secretly in love with her for years. Now, just as he’s about to make his move, another woman has staked her claim on him—a claim that will be tough to escape.
With courage, humility and not a little meddling from the good folks of Virgin River, Vanni and Paul might just get a second chance to have the love they both desire and deserve.

But Luke has spent a long time contemplating the pleasures of revenge against the family that made him pay for his father’s scandal. As far as he’s concerned the Gilchrist empire can sink.

Mass Market Paperback
Released 11-26-13, 2-in-1 reissues
Published by PB HQN
Leya Brandon doesn’t know what—if anything—to believe about Court Tremayne. He already lied about his name. And while she thinks her heart isn’t at risk, she clearly underestimates his all-consuming desire to win her for his own. Little does she know that Court has no intention of stopping his pursuit…not until he leaves her hungering for the fulfillment only he can give.
With his carefully groomed Southern manners, Yale Ransom might have stepped straight out of Gone with the Wind. But stockbroker Dara Bancroft senses a passion beneath the glossy surface of her prospective client, and recklessly, she offers him an unspoken challenge, never expecting that their conversation could explode into desire she’s never felt before. But she pushes him too far, and now Yale wants to make her pay . . . straight from the heart.
