All of Joan's novels have the same underlying premise: "It's never too late to live happily ever after." Joan lives her happily ever after in the Lone Star State with her hero, her husband. They divide their time between a Houston townhouse and a small house in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country where they grow fruit trees and wine grapes--despite the hordes of tunneling gophers, trespassing skunks, herds of deer, howling coyotes, and the occasional snake or two.

                                          SECOND CHANCE BRIDE

Constance Quinn is the Ice Queen-can Alex Martinez turn her ice into steam?

She left town at eighteen, wanting to leave behind all the pain and heartbreak. She reinvented herself as wealthy, successful Constance Quinn. The only problem is there's no room for love or relationships in her rigidly controlled existence. Now older and wiser and having made peace with her stepdaughter, she's determined to find the part of herself that got lost in her transformation.

"A blonde with curves in all the right places." That's what professor Dr. Alejandro Martinez thinks when he meets Constance. When they touch, something hot and urgent passes between them. Their attraction is mutual. Their desire is palpable.

Although Constance cannot resist a kiss from Alex, she knows she's playing with fire because he is the one man she can never have.

Second Chance Bride is Book 2 of All Brides Are Beautiful. Learn what happened to make Constance the cold and unloving stepmother to Maddie Quinn in Book 1, April Fool Bride. Can Constance be redeemed? Maddie, now happily married to Jake Becker, thinks so. Read this sexy, heartwarming romance novel and decide for yourself.
