Will Shepherd discover the true source of his strength in time or will his stubbornness wreck a second chance at love? A Billionaire Second Chance Christian Romance by DORA HIERS
As chief of cybersecurity for the company he co-founded with his buddies, Shepherd "Shep" Roberts shouldn't get stumped over how to fix a simple bug for a product under development. But, as the solution evades him and his team, slowing down the Phantom's production schedule, his buddy brings in an expert to help. It wouldn't bother Shep so much if that person wasn't Dylan Kendar, his college sweetheart. Back then, he'd thought she was "the one," but she ditched him for a jock. How can he possibly work with Dylan without her crushing his heart again? Stubborn man! Couldn't Shep see how much she wanted to help him, how much she missed him? Years ago, the nerdy college senior had stolen her heart with his sweet kisses, gentle ways, and sharp intelligence. But her faith and her decision to tutor the university's quarterback had sparked a terrible argument, and he'd pushed her away. Since leaving Laurel Cove, no man had ever spoken to her heart like him. So when Denton reached out to her about coming back to help their company track down a security flaw, Dylan didn't hesitate. She couldn't deny the hope that budded over seeing Shep again, the flare of excitement over Shep's fledgling faith. Can these exes abandon their past hurts to fix the software flaw and create something beautiful and lasting together? Will Shepherd discover the true source of his strength in time or will his stubbornness wreck a second chance at love? *A Billionaire Second Chance Christian Romance*
On Thursday, my friend and talented author Sandra Ardoin also has a book birthday.
