Seven Superb Second Chance Romances

Hello friends! I'm excited to be back with a new addition to my series - that, as per usual, has no official name, because of course - in which I recommend novels based on some of my favorite tropes. If I'm being honest, second chance romance is not a trope I actively seek out, but… Continue reading Seven Superb Second Chance Romances
