What do you do if Fate gives you a second chance at the love of your life?   Do you learn from past mistakes, or do you relive them?  Nicole Winters is about to find out.  After suffering severe injuries in a car accident, she is lucky to be alive.  She has to return to her home town to recover, only to discover her family has been withholding information and the doctor on her case is none other than her college sweetheart, Jason Marrow.  The man she dumped right before graduating from law school and leaving Texas.  Once back in her hometown, Nicole realizes that she has allowed the ghosts of her childhood to rule her life.  As she faces her past, and with the help of her family and friends, she realizes the love between her and Jason never faded.  Can they recapture what they had and build on it?  Can she move beyond the past and Learn to Love Again?

She stared at him in wonder and then looked away.  “I didn’t have anything else to go by.  And what I felt when I was with you…I was scared,” she whispered.  “I never even had a boyfriend until you came along.”
With a sigh, he tugged on her hands until she stepped into his arms.  He wrapped them around her and held her close.  “I never meant to scare you away.  What I felt for you, I knew it was intense but you were so…secretive, I guess is the word.  You never talked to me about your feelings or the past.  So much wasted time,” he murmured, rubbing her back and shoulders, feeling the tension.
Allowing herself to relax, Nicole leaned into him and he shifted to support most of the weight.  He reached up and framed her face with his hands, tilting her head back until he could see her eyes.  “We could try again, start over?” he questioned.
Without a word or breaking eye contact, she nodded her agreement.

Kelli grew up all over the East Coast but her family finally settled in Cincinnati long enough for her to finish high school and college.  She has always loved to read books and write her own stories.  In high school, she used to pass around the latest chapter of the story she was writing for her friends to read.  There is more than one high school teacher out there that can probably remember telling her to put the book down and pay attention to the lectures. 
Graduating from the University of Cincinnati with her BS in Nursing, she left Ohio for Texas and the U.S. Army.  She received a medical discharge for a knee injury, but was able to meet the man she'd one day call her husband first--thanks to some mutual friends who insisted they would perfect together.  And what do you know--they are!  
She continued to read books by the dozens and write her own stories.  And then one day, a friend dared her to enter a contest.  She didn’t win, but the feedback she received from the judges convinced her that maybe people were interested in the stories she wanted to tell.
She still lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two children and 2 dogs.
