Product Description


Learning to love the second time around - Richard Lowery and Janine Henderson are about to discover that falling for the second time can be hard. A disastrous early marriage and a bitter divorce have left Richard Lowery convinced that the single life is the only life for him. That's fully single - no dates, no girlfriend, no nothing. After the typhoon dramas of his early adult life, enough is quite definitely enough. Janine Henderson feels pretty much the same. Men are bad, boyfriends are worse and fiances are out of the question. Absolutely. After what happened last time, love is a game she's not prepared to play again. Sure, she's had a couple of flings - but they always get the push before she has to deal with anything resembling commitment. So, when the two are thrown together by a minor accident they are more than wary of the obvious attraction between them. Richard doesn't want to know - and Janine, though interested, is frightened by the force of her feelings. Richard doesn't seem to be a man she could push away so easily.

The two of them are about to learn that love works in mysterious and unexpected ways - are they ready to overcome the heartaches of the past in order to find a future together?

HASH(0x96b31348) out of 5 stars great second chance at love 8 July 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In New York City, the African American company Callister-Reynolds Vice President Dennis DeMetris is concerned that one of the firm's top sellers; writer-photographer Richard Lowry has not done anything in three years. His last work, Autumn in Zimbabwe remains a huge commercial and critical success. Dennis sends newcomer Janine Henderson to California to demand that the recluse complete his contract of two more artistic coffee table books.

Knowing she has no choice though she is worried about her seven years old daughter, Janine goes west to see Richard. He has not worked since his wife and their child tragically died. Janine has not trusted men since she realized her now former spouse not only cheated on her, but held her culpable that he did. Neither one is in the market for even a tryst let alone a relationship, but their attraction ignores the past though they emotionally cannot. Still as they fall in love, both must let go of their previous relationships if they are to forge something new.

This great second chance at love psychological contemporary drama stars two likable mentally "self-imprisoned" individuals. The story line mostly focuses on the growing relationship between Janine and Richard, but also provides some enlightening flashbacks to his deceased family. Readers will appreciate this fine tale cleverly enhanced by strong family members (her daughter, his widower father, and the ghosts of his late wife and child and her still living ex) as everyone will wonder whether the present can overcome the traumas of the past.

HASH(0x97ae1ee8) out of 5 stars A touching page turner 3 Aug. 2006
By Brenda Mott - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a warm and moving story about losing love and being afraid to find it again. When Richard Lowry loses his beloved wife and young daughter in a horrible accident, he closes off his heart and can no longer bring himself to work at what he does best--professional photography. Janine Henderson is a single mother, left by a cheating husband. Janine doesn't let life get her down. She's a strong, confidant woman, both in her career as an editor and as a mother to her young daughter. But when her boss sends her on an assignment to coax Richard into fullfilling a multi-book contract, Janine soon finds Richard means more to her than just as a business client. Richard, too, is quickly drawn to Janine, and finds himself struggling with letting go of his past and letting himself love once again. Devon Archer does a fine job in telling the story of people who will touch your heart and seem so real, you will feel you are right there with them.

HASH(0x9772b768) out of 5 stars A second chance at love... 23 Dec. 2006
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Prize winning photographer Richard Lowery is distraught over the death of his wife and daughter. Three years later he is still carrying the emotional scars of his tragic loss. Then, along the shorline of California, he encounters a stranger. Like a sign from the heavens, Richard cannot deny the feelings he has for Janine Henderson.

Janine Henderson is still recovering from a difficult divorce. After catching her husband cheating on her time and time again, Janine has vowed never to let another man hurt her. She puts all of her time and energy into raising her daughter and her career as a senior editor at a New York publishing company. Janine is not looking for love, just the second book due from Richard on his contract. Soon, there is a passion between them that neither of them can ignore. Can Richard and Janine let down their defenses and take a chance at love? Will love be better the second time around?

LOVE ONCE AGAIN has the potential to be a very good book. However, I feel that it lacks development of the main characters' relationship, as well as the romance and passion I'm accustomed to reading.
