He would do anything for a second chance…

Fire and ice have nothing on Angela Holguín and fellow MBA student Soren Lund. When they first met at school in the exciting seaside city of Barcelona, Angela was intrigued by the aloof Dane; he was enthralled by the vivacious Californian. But their timing was off and they went their separate ways – until Fate and Destiny put them back in the same city: London.

In the British capital, Angela and Soren not only reunite, their desire reignites. This time they are determined not to let love slip through their fingers—despite the many obstacles posed by others. They tumble into one another’s arms and embark upon a passionate journey in the chic, bustling streets of London. But when Angela’s ex shows up, will their new romance be strong enough to persevere? To whom will Angela’s heart beckon?

Excerpt:

Finally, the only number left was Soren’s. She entered his number and looked at it on the screen as she stood up and walked around the coffee table again, soothing herself with the movement.
            It’s been so long.
            She thought about the months she had pined after Soren, and his relative indifference towards her. It seemed like she had always been the one trying to advance things between them.
            I wonder if he’s thought about me at all.
            On her fourth lap around the table she took a deep breath and then hit the green button on her phone to dial his number before she changed her mind.
            She could feel the tiny butterflies beating out of formation in her stomach and her heart pumping out a presto tempo like an overly ambitious metronome.
            Pull it together, she admonished herself as the phone rang. 
            On the third ring, Soren picked up. “Hullo?” 
His voice was just as deep as she remembered it.
            “Hi Soren, it’s Angela from California. I’m in London. How are you?” There was a long pause. Her brows knit together, she wondered if this had been a good idea. “Soren, are you there?”
            Another few seconds passed and then he stammered, “Um, yes. Uh, hi Angela. You’re here in London?” She could tell from his tone that he was surprised to hear from her, but what she couldn’t tell was if he was happy to hear from her.
            “Yes, I’m in London for ten days, I just arrived today. I had no idea you were here, but Marco gave me your number. I was trying to get a group together for dinner, but no one seems available before 10. You probably can’t meet me either, but I would love it if you could,” she said, slapping her hand against her forehead as she came to a dead stop. Shoot, did I just use the word love?
            She stopped her pacing and stood in the center of the living room, clenching her jaw as she waited for his answer.
            “Dinner, tonight? I’d love to. How’s 6pm?” he asked, his enthusiastic tone a contrast from all of her earlier calls.
            She closed her eyes and exhaled in relief. The excited tone of his voice made her heart rate spike as she said breathlessly, “Six is great. Where should we meet?” She resumed her pacing around the table, but her steps were lighter now that she knew she was going to see Soren.
            “There’s a great Chinese place near Leicester square. I’ll SMS you the address,” he said. Angela could hear the smile in his voice.
            Yum, Chinese, my favorite. She wondered if he had chosen it specifically for her and her heart warmed at the thought.“Perfect, I can’t wait to see you. I’m really looking forward to it.” An hour ago she didn’t even know Soren was in London, and now she was having a private dinner with him. Her face grew warm as she recalled how red his lips appeared against his pale skin. She rubbed the back of her neck unconsciously.
“Me too,” he answered quietly. He paused and then said earnestly, “Angela, I’m glad you called.”
            His words sent a warm glow through her chest. “Me too. I’ll see you tonight.”
            Angela disconnected the call as she launched herself onto the couch and did a full body wiggle, kicking her arms and legs vigorously as the rough upholstery scratched her bare arms leaving red marks.
            She smiled at herself, basking in her good fortune. She was almost able to ignore the irritating feeling of the sofa, but after a few seconds it reminded her of the reason why she was in London and her excitement subsided.
            “Damn rules,” she said sullenly.
