Second Chances


Alana Lorens


Hero’s name, rank and serial number :  Kurt Lowdon, First Sergeant,  # 13286664

Branch of the service:  ARMY

What is his most heroic trait? Determination—whether it’s building a desk, a military mission, helping a friend, or pleasing his lover, he’s on board 100% until the job is done

What kind of woman is his perfect match?    He’s happiest when he’s needed—so a woman who is smart and capable, but can also be vulnerable and allow him to do what he does best



When Inessa Regan gets a pink slip, laid off from her law firm at the age of 42, without prospects she’s sure her life is over. She hides from the world, until her neighbor brings her a client, a young Iraq war veteran dying of cancer.

Kurt Lowdon only wants to make sure his affairs are in order should the worst happen, but meeting Inessa gives him encouragement on the road to recovery. His quest to help her realize her self-worth leads them into dangers they never expected, as horrors from the war and long-hidden family secrets come back to haunt them.



Alana Lorens has been a published writer for more than forty years. Currently a  resident of Asheville, North Carolina, she loves her time in the smoky blue mountains. One of her novellas, THAT GIRL’S THE ONE I LOVE,  is set in the city of Asheville during the old Bele Chere festival. She lives with her daughter, who is the youngest of her seven children, two crotchety old cats, and five kittens of various ages.


Alana, why do you like writing military heroes?     I like mine because he’s not only an alpha male— this story finds him in a place where all those traits that got him through the Iraq War have failed him–he has to depend on someone else to get him through. Then he comes right back and saves her, too.
