ONCE A REBEL
Called home because her beloved cousin Ryan is dying, psychologist Susan Fortune thinks she can handle seeing Ethan Eldridge again. He resisted her charms so well during her teenage bad-girl phase that Susan is convinced Ethan won't even remember her. But the country vet has changed too, and he makes no secret of his desire for her. More overtly sensual than previous titles in the series, Sheri Whitefeather's Once a Rebel (4) has a memorable hero who's paired with an equally strong heroine. It also ratchets up the tension in the overall story arc quite a bit -- a very good thing.
