Second Chances is available for purchase on Smashwords.
Virginia Travers is a widowed school teacher whose passion is martial arts. Parker Wilkes is a soon-to-be-retired Marine who is worried about how he will cope with civilian life after more than three decades in the Corps. Against their respective better judgements, they allow themselves to be talked into taking a Caribbean cruise. They meet during a sail-away party, and embark on what they think will be a shipboard fling that will end on the pier four days later. A terrorist hijacking interrupts their fun -- and changes both their lives, forever.
