Sometimes, life offers you a chance to see what you’ve been missing…
Everything Keile Griffen ever loved was taken away, including her family. Surviving a youth in Child Support Services has left her driven to succeed as an adult—and she has. A successful, sought after planning consultant, she maps out solutions for other people, but never for herself.
When Hayden Davenport’s partner walked out on her in the midst of planning their family, she decided to go it alone. It hasn’t been easy, and she’s not used to help. When her missing son is found by a stranger at the park, she’s overwhelmingly grateful to the young woman. When her gratitude blossoms into something more, her first impulse is to protect her child—and her battered heart.
All Keile knows is that fateful day in the park she fell for a pair of big, brown eyes. But if she wants a family she has to take a chance, a big one. She could win it all…or lose everything.
Dillon Watson’s tale of unexpected love unfolds in the beautiful southeast, and introduces an insightful new storyteller who explores the passionate commitment that leads to love and family. Winner of two Golden Crown Literary Awards.

Just About Write
Lynne Pierce - December, 2009: The nice aspect to Keile's Chance is that it has characters that are totally believable and pacing that allows the story to develop instead of just spilling out. Keile and Hayden are tentative and deal with real issues. They don't just jump into a relationship and then into bed. The reader gets a chance to see how they wrestle with their pasts, the impact that has on what they are doing and the bumps in the road.
