Until the day that Tyler - and love - walks through the door and redemption seems suddenly close at hand...Jana Franklin, the beautiful bad girl from "Like the First Time", is back and looking for a rich man. Broke and living in a shabby motel, Jana has become an outcast from the elite society she once ruled. With her divorce from Gray Livingston a part of her dubious past and no skills to aid her in the real world, Jana has no-one she can depend on but herself. Then one day she stumbles into Olivia Maxwell's store Midnight Dreams and meets Tyler - the first man she can't manipulate, toy with or fool. After this chance meeting, tough girl Jana starts to learn real life lessons - and that it takes more than scheming to get her man.

US Kirkus Review » Charleston gold-digger operating in Dallas hits rock bottom before redeeming herself in Ray's saccharine follow-up to Like the First Time. Jana Franklin, beautiful, pampered playgirl, is on the rebound from her third marriage, at age 32. Living in a cheap Dallas motel when her money runs out, she must find a new sugar daddy. This time, her past catches up with her. When she makes an appearance at Priscilla Haynes's charity gala, sporting chipped nail polish and outmoded dress, no one will come near her. Shunned by society, and hungry, she faints in the upscale linen store Midnight Dreams, owned by divorcee and single mother Olivia Maxwell and her protective, handsome Texan brother Tyler. Although Tyler is suspicious of this apparent street walker, Olivia is a Good Samaritan. After getting Jana checked out of the ER by devastatingly handsome Cuban-born Dr. Julian Cortez, who subsequently develops a crush on Olivia, the Maxwells offer Jana a place to stay and a job at the linen store. In effect, Jana is granted a chance to turn her life around, and she mostly sticks to the good path, occasionally getting frustrated when former high-society acquaintances like Priscilla enter the shop and insult her. Along the way, Julian pursues lonely, reluctant Olivia, who is trying to be a good mother, while Tyler, the most honorable of love interests, keeps a respectful distance from gorgeous Jana, whom he has learned to trust in part because she gets along so well with Olivia's young son. Bad girl makes good in this transparent, unremarkable romance offering an uplifting Christian message. (Kirkus Reviews)
