In romance author Anna Small’s latest novel, a contemporary romance novel entitled Taking A Chance on Forever, she tells of two college sweethearts who missed out on true love. Kate Thorne chased her dream to France, to pursue an artistic career while her boyfriend Dan Reynolds stayed behind in the states to tackle a business career. Along the way, Dan's become a CEO of a software company and Kate a buyer for a ritzy San Francisco art gallery, they both had children with others... And now, lo and behold, Dan’s son is marrying Kate’s daughter.

What are the odds, Kate wonders, and can she really face Dan after all these years? Can they do so without dredging up the past? And if they do dredge up the past, is Kate opening herself up to heartbreak? Maybe she should just skip out on the wedding. But nature seems to have other plans, and she and Dan will be forced to face each other--and spend a stormy night alone in a dark house. Well, at least it's a good opportunity to clear the air between them before the wedding, and he is widowed. But what’ll happen when they do?And what about that perky young  fiancĂ©e  of his?

You’ll have to read to find out.

It’s no secret I enjoyed Anna Small’s first novel, (the historical romance To Tame the Wild Wind released via The Wild Rose Press) and yes we are friends. But you know I never recommend something I don't personally love. This novel, though a little different from the first, true, stands up just as well. Truth to tell, I loved it. It had me in tears for roughly half the book--in a good way. I just felt so bad for these characters, and couldn't figure out how it was going to end happily. That’s not to say it’s missing the obligatory HEA, romance fans, it’s there. You’ll see. :) So yes, again,

If you’d like to check Taking A Chance on Forever out it is available in ebook, and paperback via Siren-Bookstrand here, and also in paperback at Amazon, here, and in paperback and Nook versions at

Oh, and she has posted an outtake from the story on her blog here, if you’d like to check it out. ;) An epilogue is coming soon too.  Or you can find out more about her and her works on her website here.

(And if you have time, there's a slightly different version of this review over at the examiner. if you'd like to give that a click for me, please do so here.)
