The Rancher’s Second Chance
by Victoria James
Published:  March 10, 2014
Publisher:  Entangled Indulgence

Widowed rancher Cole Forrester is all about running his family's ranch and guarding his heart. The last thing he's looking for is love, but when his little sister can't make it home to handle some of her wedding details, he's forced to entertain the event planner, Melanie Simms. Melanie is everything he's not even remotely interested in: she's high-society, complicated, and high maintenance. But when he's stranded with her at his remote cabin in the Colorado mountains, he realizes he's seriously underestimated her. She's hiding something about her past from him, but despite everything, he finds himself falling for the last woman he ever
expected, and the first woman to make him want to give his heart and risk everything...

Cole Forrester filled up the doorway and her mind.  He was a solid six feet two inches of hard, beautiful man.  There wasn't a soft spot on his well-defined, hard-working body.  

Don't look below his chin. 
Don't look below his chin.
Don't look.....too late.  She cursed herself.  Perfectly perfect.  He could be the poster boy for the hottest cowboy in the country.  

She looked at him, from the handsome face to the bare, perfectly sculpted torso, to the narrow waist and long, lean legs.  She wasn't going to lick her lips, like the man was a part of an all-you-can-eat dinner buffet.........

He was a man who was strong enough to allow her to be strong.  

"You may look like a girlie-girl, Mel, but you've got guts, sweetheart."

"I said, ah, hell."
Cole shrugged and frowned into the fire.  He wanted to be left the hell alone.  "What are you doing here, Gage?  It's late."  
"Eating.  I remembered Mrs. H had some leftover cake in the kitchen.  I didn't expect you'd be here, lurking in the dark like the goddamn grim reaper."

"When the hell did you get to be an expert on this kind of thing?"
He took another swing from the bottle.  "I know all about secrets and shit.  Mrs. H and I watch Downtown Abbey on Sunday nights."

I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in grade five, I penned my first story, bound it (with staples) and a cardboard cover and did all the illustrations myself (if you’ve ever seen my drawings you’ll know how horrible they must have been.  I still draw stick figures).  Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.
In high school I fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance.  After graduating University with an English Literature degree, I married my own hero, pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened my own business.
After the birth of our first child, I knew it was time to fulfill the dream of writing romantic fiction.  I’m a hopeless romantic who is living my dream, penning happily-ever-after’s for my characters in between managing kids and the family business.  Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but I’m quite content living in suburbia with my husband, our two young children, and very bad cat.
