Paradise (Second Opportunities, #1) Paradise (Second Opportunities, #1) by Judith McNaught and Perfect (Second Opportunities, #2) Perfect (Second Opportunities #2) by Judith McNaught by Judith McNaught are among my most favourite Contemporary Romance books :-)

In my opinion, Judith McNaught is highly talented in delightfully addictive writing, witty dialogues, humorous situations, intricate plots, interesting stories, emphasizing important qualities in relationships, skilful characterisation, inventing lovable protagonists, and weaving superb romance, including both 'ideal love' and 'physical chemistry', between them. 

I very much appreciate her abilities to invoke emotions, develop empathy and emotional attachment with characters, ...and above all, her flair for creating, extremely wonderful and absolutely enthralling, male protagonists...! 

Here I should add that Matthew Farrell, the 'hero' of Paradise, is one of my favourite male protagonists of Romance books :-)

Anyway, not only does her wonderful writing make me get both emotionally and mentally involved in the characters and their stories ...but also, her books always leave me feeling contented and immensely happy :-)

Yes Huma, you are right. Someone to Watch Over Me Someone to Watch Over Me by Judith McNaught is a wonderful Contemporary Romantic Suspense by Judith McNaught :-) However, I must mention that the Romantic aspect seemed to me to be based more on the theme of Unrequited Love than Second Chance / Reunion since for a long time only one of them had feelings for the other. Though I guess one can also call it a bit of Second Chance / Reunion since they were once sort of friends who got reunited after a few years of separation.

Almost Heaven Almost Heaven (Sequels, #3) by Judith McNaught by Judith McNaught is also a wonderful book. It's a Historical Romance ...and in my opinion, is based on the theme Second Chance / Reunion too. It's hero Ian Thornton is one of my favourite male protagonists in Romance books ...moreover, he is a genius so I guess the theme Brainy/Genius Hero/Heroine can also be applied here.

Shelby | 7 comments I've read a few Second Chance/Reunion books. I really like these types of books and can't wait to try some of these out!

Blind Date, Checkmate by Veronica Blade is one of my absolute favorites. And the mail characters name is Shelby, which makes it even better!

Craving Constellations (The Aces, #1) by Nicole Jacquelyn Lily's Mistake (It's Always Been You, #1) by Pamela Ann Bully (Fall Away, #1) by Penelope Douglas

These are really good books too!
