She's back, but this time she's a mother...intent on protecting her young.

Two years after her husband's death, Kate Marshall returns home seeking security and stability for her three-year-old daughter. But when her path crosses with 'the one who got away'...her husband's best friend, she has to fight the desire to be with him for the sake of further heartbreak for her and her daughter.

A tough, straight talking theatrical agent, Mark Johnston is dangerously handsome, exceedingly rich, irresistibly charming - and branded by the tabloids as one of the UK's most eligible bachelors. So even though Mark lost the girl of his dreams to his best friend, he finds no hardship in being single. Or so he thought.

Determined not to lose her a second time, Mark has to find a way to convince her they can work. But can Kate cope with the media interest and ruthless, money-hungry clients surrounding him, being anywhere near her daughter? Or accept that Mark Johnston is really the family man he claims to be?

There are many “second chances at love” stories out there in the world and many of us have lived them. In Rachel Brimble's Getting It Right This Time, she interweaves the past with the present and develops the most beautiful love story I have read in a long time. Charismatic (and rich) Mark Johnston and single, widowed mother Kate Marshall meet up years after their chance at love was stopped.

The intense dialogue and griping scenes between the two are explosive yet, at times, tender. Their love never died but now they are facing new challenges together: Kate's protectiveness of her daughter to Mark's devotion to his career. He claims he's a “family man” now, but Kate is leery and skeptical. The way Brimble collaborates the couple and their personal anguish is remarkable. I completely related to this story line and would absolutely, without a doubt recommend this book. The sensual side of Mark comes through and the sensibility from Kate is a trait many women will relate to.
