Summary

With her ex off to younger, greener pastures and her only child off to college, Maris Coltrane has a very empty nest. She also has one shot to advance from researcher to writer at the magazine where she works and the summer to turn taped interviews into a series. But there’s a catch. Maris, an unapologetic city girl, is exiled by her editor to the New England coastal town of Pirate’s Nest, a beguiling place that has a way of seeping into one’s spirit. 
Unwilling to stay in exile for long, Maris vows to have her series written in six weeks. But the solitude slows her down and gives her a chance to reflect. Each sunset that she experiences from the cottage porch, heals her tattered heart and soothes her battered soul. The only thing standing between her and utter serenity is the very hunky enigmatic owner of the place where she’s staying. This is supposed to be the summer that changes everything. And it will, just not the way she imagined. 
Logan Asher is the owner of The Tides Hotel and Cottages in Pirate’s Nest and a man of few words. With the help of his eccentric mother and temperamental teenage daughter, he manages to keep the guests coming back every year.  He also manages to keep his heart out of reach of the guests and the local ladies, until Maris rents one of his cottages. Suddenly his well thought out life is turned upside down. He knows that Maris will leave at the end of the summer just as his ex-wife left when his daughter was only a few months old. He knows that she misses the city and he could never live anywhere except Pirate’s Nest. But he can’t stop thinking of her, of making excuses to visit her, of losing sleep over craving to be with her. How can the normally steady Logan be so foolish and why does being foolish feel so right? 
The Sand of Second Chances is the first story from the town of Pirate’s Nest. A coastal town you’ll want to visit over and over again. From the muffins at Mindy’s to the hardware store complete with two old gents playing checkers on oak barrels, the town is the epitome of small town charm. The breathtaking sunrises and the bonfire clambakes let you know that you are in New England. Meet the quirky residents and experience the quaint rituals and soon you’ll be calling Pirate’s Nest home. Or at the very least, a vacation destination you’ll want to visit every chance you get.

    I was standing at the bar and waiting for a friend when it happened. 
    When my life changed forever. 
      
    She strutted inside with her head held high with grace, not pretentiousness. With legs that reached her neck, and an hourglass frame perfect for gripping, she got me hard instantly.  
      
    And those green eyes got the rest of my body hard too.  
      
    Mistaking me for the man who cheated on her friend, she walked up to me, those green eyes burning with fire, and she slapped me so hard my skin bubbled. 
      
    And damn, it felt good. 
      
    She slapped me two more times, using her petite size to gain momentum as her palm crushed into my skin. 
      
    I never wanted it to end.  
      
    I'd never met a woman who made pain feel so good. I'd never met a woman as strong as myself. I'd never met a woman I wanted to dominate more.  
      
    I'd never met a woman like her. 
      
    Rome Moretti. 
      
    My next submissive.

    The way she loves me.

    The Marquis of Darincourt who is the greatest matrimonial catch in the Beau Monde decides at last that he will get married and has chosen Lady Charlotte Warde to be his wife.
    He has been pursued for years by every debutante and ambitious mother, but he has, however, preferred the sophisticated married women who amuse him with their provocative wit and attractions.
    He is a hero from the war with Napoleon and the Duke Wellington had twice awarded him the Gold Medal for Bravery.
    As he is the owner of one of the most famous houses in England, immensely rich and of high social standing, he is determined not to be married except for himself as a man.
    However, as his family are so insistent on his marrying for an heir to carry on the title, he drives to Lady Charlotte's house to ask her to be his wife.
    When he arrives to his astonishment Lady Charlotte informs him that she is going to marry the young Duke of Nottingham simply because he is a Duke.
    Furious and frustrated, he drives his phaeton away, but is stopped on the drive by a young girl who begs him to take her with him.
    The beautiful Serla Ashton is the niece of the Earl of Langwarde and Lady Charlotte's cousin, who has been very badly treated because her mother ran away the night before her Wedding to a Royal Prince.
    Serla persuades the Marquis to take her to London and on the way he has the brilliant idea of saving himself from being laughed at for losing Lady Charlotte by announcing that he and Serla are engaged to be married.
    She agrees to the charade and with the help of the Marquis's grandmother she becomes one of the beauties of the Beau Monde overnight.
    How the Marquis is delighted at making people believe that it is he who has rejected Lady Charlotte rather than the other way round.
    How Lady Charlotte takes a bitter and frightening revenge on Serla and the Marquis and how they both eventually find the love they are seeking is all related in this exciting and unusual story by BARBARA CARTLAND.
