About this ebook

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Gloria Silk

"Beautifully written love story with a perfect happy ever after." Elizabeth Lennox, Author of the Thorpe Brothers series

The standalone bestseller, First and Only Destiny gave Lia and Devraj their own well deserved dramatic and satisfying happy-ever-after! 

BUT what if...

What if Lia and Devraj lose each other within minutes and are both left devastated, unable to forget each other?

Second Destiny is an emotional, sensuous story of the star-crossed lovers reuniting 19 years later. Just as Lia discovers her husband's infidelity, her first love, Devraj is at her door. Lia's 18-year-old daughter and Devraj's nephew are repeating romantic history. Can Lia and the Bollywood-gorgeous hero put their past behind, or will their sizzling, intense passion reignite and endanger everything in its path?

Lia Abraham gave up everything for her family and culture—art, autonomy and even self-worth. Worst of all was the sacrifice of Bollywood-gorgeous, idealistic Devraj Shah, when Lia caved in to pressure from both their families. She broke her first love’s heart by marrying the “right” Jewish man.

Nineteen years later, minutes after Lia demands a divorce from her cheating husband, her world turns upside down again; Devraj is at her door. His nephew and Lia’s feisty teenage daughter are repeating history. They’re in love, but the now reserved, enigmatic Devraj is dead-set against the couple’s marriage plans. He is convinced Lia’s daughter will ultimately reject his nephew the way Lia had rejected Devraj.

After years of feeling caged in a loveless marriage, Lia embraces her newly found freedom, and her resurgent passion for Devraj is irresistible. Once again, she surrenders to the true love of her life, but their affair re-ignites opposition from both families. Will Lia’s second chance at love again destroy her loved ones and her dreams?

Torn once again between her love for Devraj, her family responsibilities and her need for true independence, will Lia choose duty over the desires of her heart?

An amazing story of love and second chances across the great divide of cultural and religious differences, this book is heartwarming, well written and deeply emotional. Despite having found the love of her life, Lia chooses instead to follow the dictates of family duty and religious expectations when she marries Howard, a wealthy and somewhat entitled surgeon. After nineteen years of loveless marriage, a looming crisis forces Lia to take stock of her situation and file for divorce. Following right on the heels of his husband's infidelity, Lia is shocked to find that the uncle of the young man her daughter has fallen in love with is the same man she turned her back on all those years ago. History is indeed repeating itself. Whilst this is a story of young love intertwined with mature love, it is also about one woman's bid to rediscover herself after years of living in the shadow of her family as the mother of her children and the dutiful wife of her husband. Having sacrificed her own dreams and desires, she is torn between taking life in both hands and living it to the full, or taking a second chance on the love she lost so many years before. This beautifully written novel is a standalone and comes to a joyful and colourful conclusion. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.
