The Chances Trilogy by Martha O'Sullivan
Lindsay Foster has convinced herself that marrying Paul Webster is the right thing to do. But she and Brian Rembrant have some unfinished business. And now that Brian is standing in front of her again, undressing her with his eyes, she finds herself torn between the life she's always wanted and the man she'll always love
Brian's up for that fight; he's used to getting what he wants. And he's never met a rule that couldn't be broken. So when Lindsay won't come to him, he goes to her.
But it's more complicated than that.
This love triangle has an extra side. Lindsay's lifelong best friend Moria Brody has a heart-wrenching secret. And she's not the only one struggling with an epiphany. The chain of events set in motion on the tranquil shores of Lake Tahoe come to a head on a foggy San Francisco night. And alter the course of four lives forever.
The last thing Delaney Richards was looking for at college roommate Lindsay Foster's wedding was love. The long hours at the office were finally paying off—she could all but feel the vice-presidency in her bones. And she was counting on this week in San Francisco to seal the deal. But first she had to get through the wedding--Delaney’s first since her own. Almost wedding, that is. You can’t have a wedding without a groom.
Captain Mike Savoy hadn’t counted on seeing Delaney Richards again at his best friend’s wedding in Tahoe, let alone find himself falling in love with her. Now he has to convince her that the feeling is mutual--and unfailing. But the past can be a killer. And the only way Mike can ensure a future with Delaney is to break her heart--temporarily. But when blackmail turns to ransom, Mike is the only one who can save her. To survive, Delaney must trust the heart that once betrayed her.
Moira Brody has been in love with Paul Webster for a lot longer than she's willing to admit--until recently that is. But she isn't going to wait around forever.
It's taken Paul a long time and some unexpected compeition to see Moira as more than just his friend's sister. And now that he has, he sure as hell isn’t going to let her get away.
Or let the past dictate the future.
But Paul is his own worst enemy; something Moira knows better than anyone.
And that’s only the half of it.
Moira and Paul will come full-circle, but there will be plenty of collateral damage along the way. Especially when Paul decides that pushing Moira away would hurt less than losing her. Until his heart reminds him that he doesn’t get to make that choice. And so does she.
In Second Chance, star-crossed lovers Lindsay Foster and Brian Rembrandt get a second chance at love amid the brilliant blue waters of Lake Tahoe. In Chance Encounter, Delaney Richards and Mike Savoy’s quest for love takes them from Tahoe’s fawn-colored shores to the sinuous streets of San Francisco. And in Last Chance, the heat doesn't come from the blazing summer sun and white-hot sand, but from the insatiable desire between friends-turned-lovers Moira Brody and Paul Webster. And even the single-digit temperatures of the snow-capped Sierras are no match for their long-bridled passion.
