Second Chance at Love Blog Tour

I'm very happy to host Victoria Wells on her second day of the Second Chance at Love Tour. Join me to welcome her and to learn even more about Victoria!


What is your favorite book to date?
I actually have two favorite books. Sister Got Game by Leslie Esdaile and Someone To Love Me by Francis Ray.

Who is your favorite author and why?

This is such an unfair question because I have so many favorites. If I had to pick one I would say the late great L.A. Banks. She was such a dynamic and gifted author. Whether it was her romance novels, political series, paranormal series or her latest young adult novel, I enjoyed them all. I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Banks in person twice and she was just a sweetheart.

Why do you write?

I enjoy the freedom it gives me to escape into another world. Being able to write for hours is very therapeutic. When I’ve had a stressful day, there’s nothing like iving into the lives of my characters to ease the stress away.
Receiving emails, FB messages and guest book messages from readers also encourages me to write. Knowing that others find what I write entertaining and having them express wanting more stories is a great motivator.
In a nutshell, I write for both myself and those who enjoy my stories.


As a young widowed mother, love is the last thing on Karen Johnston’s mind. Her busy life revolves around caring for her two young children, which becomes even more challenging when her children begin to show signs of needing a father in their lives. Just as things start to go haywire in the Johnston household, in walks ruggedly handsome Dominic Peretti, Jr. The attraction between the two is undeniable. Karen spends restless nights dreaming of his touch. As he begins to crowd every space of her life, will she give in to her sensual desires? Or will she sacrifice her desires for the sake of her children?
Dominic ‘Dom’ Peretti, Jr. isn’t looking for a serious relationship when he accepts the task of surrogate father to Karen’s children. But he can’t get the ever so lovely and sexy woman out of his mind. His intention is to have nothing more than a hot, steamy fling to satisfy his appetite. However, as he gets a taste of life with the Johnstons, he has a decision to make. Will he give love a chance? Or will he walk away, leaving Karen and her children in harm’s way?

Be sure and follow the tour each day to learn more about Victoria. Leave a comment each day to be entered to win a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card courtesy of Victoria!

Hi, Victoria: I'm so glad to welcome you to my "place in cyberspace." I've got a brand new Kindle (with a rose pink cover:) and Second Chance at Love is loaded and ready to read! I agree with you so much on the therapeutic value of writing; it takes you out of the present reality into a whole new world.

SOmeone To Love Me is one of my favs too. In faaaaaacccttt he does kind or remind me of someone who we all love but wanna choke at the same time lol! ~Jen

Darlene said...

Hey Niambi and Victoria! I too have to agree that Someone to Love Me by Francis Ray is one of my favorites as well! But then again, I have soooo many favorites, it is hard to just choose one! I too think that asking someone who their favorite author is unfair, because, I have so many, and then there are a few that are soooo near and dear to my heart :-) (smile) that regardless of what they write or don't write, they are still special and favorite in my life! Have a blessed day!

Victoria Wells said...

Hi Niambi! Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today. I'm really happy to be here. Soooo, the cover for your kindle isn't lavender? :) BTW, loved, loved, loved Sanctuary.

Hey Jen! LOL the two of them were probably separated at birth!Thanks for stopping by!

Victoria Wells said...

Hey Darlene! It's really hard to pick just one author when there are so many that write wonderful stories. Although I have a few, Ms. Banks is right up there in the top 5.
Thanks for swinging by!

Niambi said...

Hi, Victoria, Jen and Darlene!
Victoria, it is my pleasure to host you today. And you know I wish you continued success! Now, about that pink cover - I've been known to rock the pink (lol) and the Kindle and the cover were a gift. But I might have to spring for a lavender cover to match my cell phone case:)
I'm so glad you liked Sanctuary!

Beverly said...

Hello Ladies -

I am glad that writing is therapeutic for you as reading your books are therapeutic for me.

As for the fav author questions - I usually answer that it is the author of the last book I read as I have too many authors that I enjoy.

Take care

Victoria Wells said...

Hi Beverly! I agree with you. Reading is very therapeutic. That's why it takes me so long to get my books out because I'm reading! LOL

Hey Mona, I'm so glad you gave my work a chance. Thank you for your support. So sorry about Caliente Nights. You're not the only one who feels it was too short. :(
