Guest Post + Series Spotlight + Giveaway ~ Love’s Second Chance Series by Scarlett Scott


Thank you so much for having me here today! I’m excited for this opportunity to share a little behind-the-scenes information about the setting of my contemporary romance, Win My Love.

I was born and raised in southeastern Pennsylvania, and I spent my summers (still do, in fact) on the eastern shore of Maryland, soaking up the sun on the state’s beautiful beaches. I’ve done a fair amount of traveling, but one of my favorite places will always be the small town of Berlin, Maryland. Its picturesque and historical downtown area, lined with gorgeous brick buildings from the late 19th century, was used as the setting for the small Maryland town in the movie Runaway Bride.

And that’s where the idea for Win My Love started to take shape. When Derek Shaw first appeared in Perfect Persuasion, I knew he couldn’t go back to Hollywood life. He needed a nice, normal small town where he could plant roots and find his happily ever after. I modeled Atlantic, Maryland—the setting for Win My Love—loosely on Berlin, a place I’d come to know and love. As a fan of small town romances, I thought it just seemed fitting that one of my favorite characters should end up in the fictional version of one of my favorite places.

In fact, after I created Atlantic, I loved it so much that I decided to take off my shoes and stay there for awhile. My upcoming erotic contemporary romance, Loved Up, takes place in Atlantic too. It’s the first book in my new Coastal Heat series, featuring 4 sexy, alpha brothers who all live in—you guessed it—Atlantic.

I hope you’ll stop by Atlantic too and that you’ll love it as much as Derek, Wynne and the rest of the gang do. Happy reading!

Reprieve

Love’s Second Chance, Book 1 


It’s been a year since Sophie lost her husband and daughter in a car wreck but time hasn’t healed her wounds. A desperate choice leads her to Trevor, the handsome stranger who saves her life and leaves her wanting more than just a few steamy kisses.

Trevor is content living the fast-paced life of a successful NYC entrepreneur. The last kind of complication he needs is a troubled woman like Sophie. But he’s immediately drawn to her even if his bachelor instincts scream for him to run.

As Sophie struggles to fight her growing feelings for Trevor, she’s torn between her past and the future. Somehow, she has to find the strength to finally let go and move on with a man who is everything she never thought she wanted.


Perfect Persuasion

Love’s Second Chance, Book 2 


After a wild weekend of passion on a business trip, Claire discovers she’s pregnant with her boss’s baby. It wouldn’t be such a big deal—if Logan wasn’t the world’s most arrogant jerk. She decides to keep the pregnancy a secret, even if it means losing her job.

It doesn’t take long for Logan to realize what’s going on and he isn’t happy Claire tried to hide the truth. To make matters worse, he and Claire can’t seem to agree on anything other than the insane attraction that keeps sparking between them. One minute they can’t stand to be in the same room and the next, they can’t keep their hands to themselves.

Even as their mutual attraction heats up, both are determined to guard their hearts. Claire can’t make sense of Logan’s hot-then-cold personality and Logan wants more from Claire than she’s willing to give. Just when they begin meeting each other halfway, outside interference threatens to tear them apart forever.


Win My Love

Love’s Second Chance, Book 3 


Wynne Carter’s one-night-stand with Hollywood bad boy Derek Shaw resulted in life-changing consequences in the form of her precious daughter. Years later, she isn’t prepared to face him or his questions when he returns to her small town seeking answers.

With his acting career on hiatus thanks to his wild past, discovering he has a daughter is reason enough for Derek to stick around. Spending timing with her mom isn’t too shabby either, and soon he can’t keep Wynne or her long legs off his mind.

Wynne knows a man like Derek is made for sin, not happily-ever-afters, but resisting him proves pretty darn impossible. For a while, it looks as if the unlikely pairing of the single mom and the heartthrob might make it after all. Until Hollywood wants its leading man back, and their new relationship threatens to fall apart forever.
