Guest Post/Virtual Tour ~ Secret Baby Second Chances by Jane Godman

Vincente’s Heartbreak Playlist

I’ve always thought that the secret baby theme in a romance story is one of the hardest to write well. It’s kind of a big deal, after all. Keeping something that huge from your partner? Is there really a way to mend the trust in a relationship after that?

In Secret Baby, Second Chance, Beth Wade really has no choice. Forced to flee her home because of threats to her life and her loved ones, she also has to leave behind Vincente Delaney, the man with whom she shares a unique and intense relationship. It’s only after she has gone that she realizes she’s pregnant.  

From Vincente’s perspective, things are complicated because the police believe that Beth has been murdered by the serial killer who has been terrorizing the small Wyoming town of Stillwater. 

He spends months agonized by her loss, only to find that she has been alive all along and that he has a daughter he never knew existed. Getting to know his daughter and finding the person who is threatening Beth, while keeping them both safe become his priorities.

But his emotions were shattered when he thought he had lost Beth, and he had a hard time dealing with that. I put together a playlist for Vincente (remembering, of course, that he believes Beth is dead when he’s listening to this music).

Vincente’s Playlist

Here Without You

3 Doors Down

Unbreak My Heart

Toni Braxton


Johnny Cash

Led Zeppelin

One Sweet Day

Mariah Carey (featuring Boyz II Men)

Only Time

Since this is a romantic suspense, I can assure you that Vincente’s playlist at the end of the story is considerably more upbeat!

Excerpt ~

As he approached, he sized up the building. Nothing about it made him think of Beth. It had a slightly neglected air, as if the owner didn’t have the time, energy or money to spend on it. He contrasted that with the Stillwater house she had lived in. That had been as neat as wax. Being organized seemed to come effortlessly to Beth, spilling over into how she dressed, her surroundings and how she dealt with other people. Vincente wondered, not for the first time, if the reason she had struggled with their relationship was because she couldn’t neatly package up her feelings for him. When they were together there was no controlling what they felt. It had always been raw, primal…and incredible.

The thought spurred his feet up the front step. His heart was pounding so loud it almost drowned out the sound of his knock on the door. Prepared for disappointment, his nerves—already under intense pressure—were ratcheted up to crisis level when he heard a voice calling out.

“Did you forget something, Detective ?” It wasn’t just any voice. It was Beth’s voice.

He wondered how she would react if she checked who it was through the peephole in the door. Her words indicated she thought Laurie had come back again and he heard a key turn in the lock immediately after she spoke.

The door swung open and the smile on her lips faded. As she gazed at him in shock, Vincente took a moment to drink in her appearance. Her hair was shorter, just reaching her shoulders now instead of the waist-length mass in which he had loved to bury his hands. It was scraped back into an unflattering ponytail. She looked thinner. And tired, definitely tired. Almost to the point of exhaustion. But maybe the reason for that was sitting on her hip.

The baby wore pink sweatpants and a T shirt with butterflies embroidered all over. Not quite a toddler, she was a perfect little girl. Her black hair clustered in a halo of curls around her head and she studied Vincente with eyes that were huge, dark and framed by thick, spiky lashes. The hint of olive to her skin and the full ruby lips were additional confirmation of his first suspicion. It was like looking in a mirror .

Vincente almost took a step back in shock as he gazed at his daughter.
