I’ve been bombarding my social media followers with news of my latest release, but I’ve neglected my poor (or lucky?) blog followers!
That’s right, it’s release day! (Woohoo!)
Second Chance For Love is an anthology I almost didn’t write a story for. The deadline was approaching and I had no ideas. Then, BAM! An idea popped into my head. I’m not sure what I was thinking about, but I suddenly had this idea of a woman in a Hollywood marriage walking in on her husband with the nanny. Not only has she been betrayed by her life partner, but now how could she ever trust another nanny? The solution was the Manny.
Here’s a little about each of the stories, then I’ll give you an excerpt from my story, Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now.

Excerpt from Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now by Caroline Andrus
“Well,” he said. “Have a good time on your date tonight.”
“Thanks,” she said, her gaze falling on the floor before meeting his once more. “Have a good time… hanging out here.”
He laughed. “I’ve got a tablet full of books to read.”
“Do you read a lot?” she asked as she began putting her earrings in.
“Any chance I get.”
“Is that why you’re single? Too lost in your books?”
It was his turn to study the floor. “Maybe. I guess the timing just hasn’t been right.”
“That’s too bad. If there’s anything I can do, as far as timing goes I mean—”
He cut her off. “Thanks, but I don’t think so.”
“Well, if you change your mind…” she trailed off. “Oh shoot!” She stared at the floor. “I dropped the darn back to my earring.”
She dropped to her hands and knees on the floor, searching for the tiny metal piece. Simon quickly joined her, his hands working across the plush cream colored carpet beneath them.
“Aha!” he cried triumphantly, his hand in a tight fist shot into the air.
“Thank you.” Her voice was a breath as she reached her hand out, palm open. Simon set the earring back gently on her palm, then with his other hand, closed her fingers around it.
“You’re welcome,” he said, his amber eyes staring deep into her blue ones.
There was a knock at the door and Rebecca started at the sound. She smiled apologetically and let him help her to her feet. As she turned her back on him to answer the door, Simon said something that caused her to turn back.
“Ollie is right. You really do look beautiful.”
She blushed and smiled at the floor. “Thank you.”
Turning, she quickly popped the earring back into place and made her way to the door. She opened it and found Lucas Labelle standing there, flashing his movie star smile.
