Happy Thanksgiving, mes amies! Today I’m welcoming award-winning author Joan Kilby to the Author Spotlight with her newest release, Second Chance Dad and a fun giveaway!
Joan writes sweet, sexy contemporary romance with a touch of humor. When she’s not working on a new book Joan can often be found at her local gym doing yoga, or being dragged around the neighborhood by her Jack “Rascal” terrier. Her hobbies are growing vegetables, cooking, traveling and reading–not necessarily in that order. Happily married with three children, Joan lives in Melbourne, Australia. She loves to hear from readers so feel free to drop her a line; her links are below.
Take it away, Joan!
Hello everyone! Joan Kilby here. My latest release from Tule Publishing is SECOND CHANCE DAD, Book 3 in my Sweetheart, Montana series. The books are stand-alone stories but are connected by family and friendship groups. All the books have a holiday theme — in the case of SECOND CHANCE DAD it’s Thanksgiving.
Newly retired pro football player, Daniel Hunter, returns to Sweetheart after years away to open an eco-resort. He hires his high school sweetheart, Sarah Mills, as manager. Sarah also happens to be the mother of his biological son, and Daniel wants to reconnect with both mom and child. Sarah is widowed now and while she still has feelings for Daniel, she is equally protective of her little boy. How can she let Daniel get close when she knows – or thinks she does – that he’ll never be content for long in a small town? As the couple work together to create a Thanksgiving to remember for their families, friends and guests, she realises she’s falling for him again, only now there are two hearts on the line, hers and her son’s. Can Daniel prove to her that this time, he’ll stick around?
Fall is one of my favourite seasons, and Thanksgiving, with it’s family-oriented themes, was a natural fit for this sweet, second-chance at love story. Daniel is a retired football player, and besides roast turkey and pumpkin pie, nothing says Thanksgiving more than football. I loved writing this book and had a lot of fun with the theme, from little kids playing in colorful fallen leaves, to the elaborate but homey Thanksgiving dinner, to resolving family tensions, to the pick-up football game with the hero and heroine good-naturedly trash talking each other from opposing teams.
What’s your favorite season and why? Comment below to go in the draw to win a print copy of SECOND CHANCE DAD.

P.S. LONG LOST CHRISTMAS, Book 1 in this series is now a Hallmark original movie. It airs starting November 19 on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel.

I enjoy Spring when everything becomes alive and new. Thank you for sharing. God bless you.
Hi Debra, you’re very welcome! I love spring, too, seeing new green shoots coming up is special.
Love second chance stories. I am a Spring person, but like fall a lot.
Kimberly, I have a real soft spot for second chance at love stories, too. Thanks for stopping by.
I’m excited to read your books and watch the movie! What an exciting time! Many congratulations!
My favorite season is summer, but there is something I love about each of them. Right now, I’m enjoying warm fires and crock pot food!
Thanks, Laurie! You’re right, there’s something good about every season. By the time it changes I’m always ready for something different.

Fall is my favorite, but I love living in the Northeastern United States because we get them all!
Hi Roseann, you would get wonderful fall colors where you are! Must be amazing.
I love spring! I have spent most of my life in Arizona where seasons weren’t much of anything. Now I live in Massachusetts and the smell of spring is like magic, every time!!
Thanks for stopping by, Brandy. Cherry blossoms in spring! I love when the whole air seems like breathing perfume.
I think I like every season, because I am always ready for the new one to start. But as a wife of a retired football coach, fall does hold a special place…
Kate, lol, now I’m nervous in case I made any bloopers about football. 🙂 You could give me some pointers for next time. :))
Fall is my favorite season, too. Your story sounds lovely!
Liz, thanks so much! Fall might be my favorite partly because my birthday is in October. It’s a theory… 🙂
