Excerpt: "You came here for a one night stand!"

Lily has been hiding in her parent's ranch ever since her divorce with Rafe went down even though it's been years - finally she gives a little as her brother signs her up for a 1NightStand agency, not that she plans to go through with it, she's considering this as a vacation.

Rafe realized what a mistake letting his wife divorce him was and he has cooked up a plan with Lily's brother to get her to Alaska before Christmas to gain him another chance. He knows she's got one fiery temper and that he has to be sneaky in getting her to admit she still loves him, wants him and is willing to give him another chance. But maybe all that bad water under the bridge is just too much to forgive, or just maybe love can fix any bridges broken.

I enjoyed this novella, as a believer in second chances I liked how badly Rafe wanted her back knowing he'd done wrong - and I loved that Lily confessed that she wasn't blameless either. The characters were hurt, determined and watching them try and dance around the facts and finally hit the sack was quite entertaining. And yes, I'm a sucker for happy endings, in my book it's not a romance if it ends badly!

The cover is beautiful, like most 1NightStand covers are! Clarissa Yip's writing is fun, touching and easily sets up scenery so you can just get into the story. Easy flowing and fun to read! Now without further ado, check out Clarissa Yip's guest blog "Second Chances" under the rating!

Wonders of Second Chances

by Clarissa Yip

Thank you so much for having me here today!

I'd love to talk about my new release, Silent Night's Seduction! As part of the Madame Eve's 1Night Stand Holiday Anthology, this was one of my favorite books to right. I'm definitely a second chances girl and my characters, Lily and Rafe, deserve another try. Set up in a resort in Alaska, Lily is forced and kidnapped onto a plane, by her very own brother, Shane (from Tempting a Cowboy). Once she arrives, she thinks it'd be easy to turn down her date and just spend a holiday alone, but lo and behold, her ex-husband shows up with ulterior motives…what a guy! lol.

Sometimes relationships work in the most mysterious ways. Sometimes when you've believed that you've moved on, obstacles from your past reappear only for fate to take over sometimes, and I think that is what happened here with Lily and Rafe. Seeing their love re-blossom and secrets unfold, brings the most bittersweet moments. Time wreaks havoc on a person. Sometimes it could be the wrong time, wrong place, but when destiny takes a role, then you should follow it.

I've always thought back to my past relationships and have done the "what if's" and of course at times wonder if there'd be any hope to reconcile them. But let's be serious. The past is best to leave in the past unless fate occurs to make magic. There are many things that I wished I had another chance to fix and make right, but opportunities only appear when you least expect it. Lily and Rafe deserve their second chance at love through all they've been through, and with the New Year's, I think there are new opportunities to bloom and progress in life to be made. It's just whether or not you grab those opportunities and make the best of it.

What's your take on second chance relationships? Are they worth it or best to just move on?

Niina : I got to say, personally, I'm all for Second Chances if there hasn't been any abuse, I mean sometimes people make the wrong choices that take them in different direction only to find their love never died some years in the future. Most of all I love reading about those romances - especially when the man is doing the chasing... sexy as hell! ;D
