SECOND CHANCEAs editor-in-chief of New Yorks leading fashion magazine, Fiona Monaghan lived a life as hectic and high-toned as the fashion world itself, jetting back and forth between her stylish Manhattan brownstone and the couture shows of Europe. With closets stuffed with Fendi, a snoring bulldog named Sir Winston sharing her bed, and a houseman who favors gold lam and borrows her shoes, Fiona was utterly content with her life. Until the sweltering June day John Anderson strolled into her office. After a dinner date left them both wanting more, Fiona impulsively invited John to the Paris couture shows. And in the most romantic city in the world, somewhere between the magic of the runway and the stroll along the Seine, Fiona let this man into her heart. A widower with two daughters, John Anderson was nearly Fionas opposite in every way. As conservative as she was freewheeling, John was both amused and appalled by Fionas world of high-strung designers, anorexic models, and high-heeled housemen. But within weeks of their return to New York, John was making friends with Sir Winstonand Fiona was making room in her closets. It didnt take long for the dominoes to start falling. First, John introduced Fiona to his daughters, their blood-thirsty Pekingese, and a snarling housekeeper straight out of Hitchcocks Rebecca. It was hate at first sight.

What happens next will set Fiona on a journey filled with pain and revelation, awakening and change.For when she returns to Paris alone and takes an amazing risk, an extraordinary series of events begins to unfold.
