Sometimes you have to take the leap…again.
Newly widowed with a new baby, Ren Jamieson is putting her life back together after her thrill-seeking husband’s death. But when she’s called to show a high-end property to a prospective client—a commission she desperately needs—she meets a man who makes her pulse pound like nothing she’s ever known…

Cole Matthews is more than he seems. Real estate is only part of the reason he’s in Australia – the other is to see Ren, and make amends somehow for the life lost. The last thing Cole expects is a woman whose humor, sweetness and sexiness give him a rush greater than any he’s ever experienced…

Torn between her growing feelings for Cole and the risks of loving yet another adventurer, Ren will have to choose between keeping her feet on the ground…and taking the most dangerous leap of her life.

I’d like to start by thanking Tanya for inviting me to stop by and talk about taking a chance on love. Gather close because I’ve decided to put a personal spin on this topic.

I met my husband at a function I didn’t want to go to, in a dress I didn’t want to wear. I’d just discovered what it felt like to have my heart pulverized, I’d sworn off all men till the end of time, and (being young) the idea of dating an older man who was looking for a serious relationship would’ve been hilarious… if anyone had dared to suggest it. But when the determined matchmakers at our table – all twenty of them – casually got up and wandered off, I didn’t cause a scene.

It turns out that being the sole focus of a room full of interested onlookers can bond strangers pretty quickly. Accepting the hand my-future-hubby held out to me made complete sense because we’d be less of a target on the dance floor than sitting there where we were. Several happy hours went by, but when it was time to leave I surrounded myself with other people so that I wouldn’t have to turn down a date that I wasn’t ready for. Not too brave, huh?

Needless to say he asked around afterwards and found an awesome way to contact me. (Guys: if you show up unexpectedly on a girl’s home turf and ask her out in front of a large audience she’ll be so impressed that ‘no’ won’t even enter her mind.) Those memories from 1987 are still clear after all these years, but we wouldn’t have gotten together or stayed together without taking some chances along the way.

My heroine in His Unexpected Family is faced with taking a second giant leap of faith after the first one ended in disaster. She doesn’t know if she can do it, and most people I know have stood in her shoes at one time or another. My closing question is this: if love was the prize, would you leap?
