Love Matters, Second Life, SL Enquirer

Second Time Around

It’s finally done…  This manuscript took a long time to come to fruition but I’ve enjoyed the journey immensely, and I have Lanai Jarrico, she of the SL Enquirer, to thank for its existence.

Second Time Around is a twenty-first-century romance, where virtual lives and real lives intertwine.

Sheridan King had it all and then she didn’t.  Her trust in men irrevocably shattered, or so she thought.

Luke Ashton, successful Ad man and artist, surfer and ladies’ man.  His pain and distrust of women run deep.

Having a Second Life© complicates matters even further.  What is real and what is imagined?

Second Time Around by Lacy Muircastle is available on Kindle via Amazon

Second Time Around© …. Prologue

Sheridan sat impatiently in the court waiting in suspense for her name to be called. “Sheridan Browne” With her heart in her throat she realised that the time had finally come, all the months of bitter tears and anguish, of her emotions running the gamut of despair at the impending end of a 10 year relationship, to relief and giddy euphoria at the prospect of a new beginning …

Luke stood at the window looking out across a stormy sea, thinking to himself that the weather emulated his grey mood perfectly.  His pain still raw.  His beloved Elaine taken from him so cruelly a year before.  It was the first anniversary of her passing and he still felt utterly bereft.  He couldn’t help himself, as the tears rolled slowly down his cheeks, no matter how many times he was told by well-meaning friends and family that he would be okay given time, he just didn’t see how.
