SECOND CHANCE WITH THE REBEL (3) by Cara Colter: Lucy Lindstrom left behind bad boy Macintyre Hudson, her drop-dead gorgeous next-door neighbor, more than 10 years ago, when he was willing to risk everything but his heart. Now she must reach out to him because she’s the head of a fundraiser for a Mother’s Day gala, and the guest of honor is Mac’s foster mom, Harriet Freda. Since they both want to make the party special for Mama Freda, they are forced to work side by side. As they attempt to make amends, Lucy realizes there’s a lot in Mac’s heart he refuses to wear on his sleeve. Though the plot is somewhat unclear and drags a bit in the beginning, the finish is well worth the wait. A 2008 reprint of Her Royal Wedding Wish follows.
