Cancun, Mexico & remote Idaho – Present Day

When they were teenagers, Charm Outlaw and Dylan Emanuel were in love, though they kept the fact that they were seeing each other from her disapproving father. But after their one night together, each got a text from the other ending their relationship. Now adults, Charm is in Cancun to participate in a friend’s wedding—and spots Dylan watching her from afar. After agreeing to dinner together, the old feelings rise again, but Charm is determined to hurt Dylan as much as he hurt her all those years ago. Her plan is to go along with his plans for them to see each other again, and then drop him as they are about to make love. 

Dylan is now a famous musician and after spotting Charm, he realizes that he still cares for her. But her blunt rejection of him years ago still hurts, so he plans to seduce her and then reject her. But his plans go awry during a trip to the rural ranch he inherited from his grandparents in Idaho as he can’t make the final break. Without discussing what went wrong the last time they were together, Charm and Dylan start falling in love again. 

Charm and Dylan were probably too young to have had a lasting relationship back in their teens, but their lost love shaped their future. In SECOND TIME’S THE CHARM, they get a chance at a reunion and come into their new relationship plotting revenge. It’s clear from their memories of the “rejection” that it was someone trying to break them up. Charm isn’t sure at first how to feel about seeing Dylan again, but when she overhears a couple of women plotting to set him up on drug and porn possession charges, she doesn’t hesitate to let Dylan know. Along with his security staff and the FBI, they take down the women. Now Dylan wants a second chance with Charm.

Off they head to Idaho, where the days are spent exploring the ranch and talking. Charm sees Dylan as possibly changed, but she can’t forget about how he dumped her. In the back of his mind, he begins to rethink his plan to reject her. What will happen when they finally make it to the bedroom? Will their plans work—or fail? SECOND TIME’S THE CHARM is part of the Westmoreland Legacy: The Outlaws and appears to be the final book. But of course, Brenda Jackson probably has more books in the pipeline about the expansive Westmoreland family. 

A reunion is in the air for Charm and Dylan in SECOND TIME’S THE CHARM even though that isn’t how they plan their revenge. Will they discover the truth and find love together again? Don’t miss this emotional tale.
