New York City and Australia – Present Day

Publishing mogul Wynn Hunter and Grace Munroe were once childhood adversaries but since then have not seen each other. Years later, unrecognized by him, a very much grown up Grace becomes his mystery one night stand. So imagine his surprise to learn her identity a few days later when both attend a wedding between mutual friends. The shock of knowing who she is hasn't slaked his thirst for the beautiful redhead because he wants her back in his bed. But this time she's playing hard to get.

While Grace's childhood crush for Wynn hasn't died, she's not looking to get involved with the confirmed bachelor because she suspects it will only lead to heartbreak. But Wynn is relentless, and there's no denying the sizzling chemistry between them, so why is she still resisting him? When Wynn finally lands Grace back in his bed, he is soon whisking her off to Australia to be his date for his brother's upcoming nuptials. As their sunny days and passionate nights continue, Grace discovers she's fallen for Wynn again, even though he makes it clear he isn't looking to make their romance permanent. Can she still walk away from him with her pride—and heart—intact?

Grace and Wynn hadn't seen each other since they were children, but they can't forget the reaction they had toward each other even back then. They fought—but was it because even then they felt that “something” between them? In ONE NIGHT, SECOND CHANCE, they get to finally find out in adulthood how passionate things are still between them. Wynn is just getting over losing a woman he thought he would marry when she left him for another man, while Grace is still grieving over the death of a man many thought she'd marry. They have a lot of emotional baggage, and something that will need to be resolved before they can start on the path to a happily-ever-after.

ONE NIGHT, SECOND CHANCE is part of The Hunter Pact series, and readers who haven't read the first two books in the series (LOSING CONTROL and TEMPTATION ON HIS TERMS) will feel lost a little if ONE NIGHT, SECOND CHANCE is picked up first because part of the tale revolves around the wedding of Cole and Taryn from the first book. Then there is the ongoing question of who is responsible for the attempts on Guthrie Hunter, the brothers' father. Can the Hunter brothers keep their littlest brother, Tate, safe from the unknown culprit?

Readers who enjoy sizzling hot reads will not go wrong with ONE NIGHT, SECOND CHANCE as Wynn and Grace spend a lot of time making love. Yet there is that wall between them, the one where they daren't look to the future beyond their fling or discuss the past. For an emotional journey I highly recommend, be sure to pick up ONE NIGHT, SECOND CHANCE.
