What Inspired First Love Second Chance

Book cover_First Love Second Chance.jpg

By Chanta Rand

I've been a romance fan since I can remember. When I was sixteen, I saw a movie called Touch and Go, starring Michael Keaton and Maria Conchita Alonso. He's a professional hockey player who gets mugged by a group of gang members. He catches the youngest one and develops a relationship with him. Then, he meets the boy's mom and they fall in love. It was my first interracial sports romance. After that, I was hooked! Fast forward 30 years later, I'm now a published author who writes sports romances. I decided to do my own twist on Touch and Go--only my version is filled steamy love scenes, witty banter, and family drama. If you like romance and sports, you'll love First Love Second Chance.


About the Book

Nine years ago, wide receiver and notorious playboy, Colt Emerson, walked away from marriage to the only woman he ever loved. A chance encounter with a runaway teen convinces him there’s more to life than his own selfish needs. But Social Services won’t consider him an acceptable candidate to adopt the kid unless he can provide a stable family environment, and Colt only trusts one woman to handle the job—his ex-wife, Shayla.

Shayla Carter has fought feelings of anger and grief every time she sees her celebrity ex-husband on TV with some new bimbo draped on his arm. When he shows up out of the blue with a Texas-sized solitaire diamond and a promise to do right by her, she gives him a reception like hell froze over. But Colt agrees to her long list of demands, and now Shayla can’t help but wonder if it’s time to give her first love a second chance.
