Grace Adams is loving life as a high school drama teacher and mother of two teen girls when her husband suddenly divorces her to chase Barbie dolls at the beach. As menopause beckons, Grace is left to wonder whether love has passed her by… Doug Saunders is an alpha male cop, a knight in shining Kevlar despite his fifty years, yet haunted by his failure to raise a troubled teen son from a botched relationship. He’s a hero on the streets, no doubt, but is he a deadbeat at love? When Grace and Doug meet, sparks fly well over the speed limit in this steamy yet sweet romance about two aging lovebirds who aren’t quite ready to give up on second chances… Contemporary romance novelist Pat Adeff writes in a fun, perky prose style reminiscent of your favorite vintage rom com, yet with a longing and depth of feeling that’s bound to hit home with readers who may be older and wiser, but still have a pulse. So break out the popcorn, chardonnay and handcuffs for this cop romance that will have your heart beating faster than a 211 in progress!

Book Description:

She finds herself raising two daughters – alone.
He’s a police officer and a confirmed bachelor.
Then their paths cross…

After being blindsided by her husband’s demand for a divorce, Grace vows that raising her older teenage daughters must come first. So, she throws herself into her teaching job and puts romance on the back burner. Heck, it leaves the building entirely – until a few years later when Doug enters her life.

He’s a local bachelor by day and heroic police officer by night. He finds himself being drawn to the soft-spoken single mother. Grace’s quiet strength attracts him as much as her apparent self-blindness to her own womanly beauty.

Then unexpected circumstances in both their lives throw up roadblocks to their growing romance.

Can they overcome the hurt? Will Doug’s past ruin his future chances with Grace?

Do they dare take another chance at love?
