Review of A SECOND CHANCE by Kara Lennox (see her website)
Harlequin, April 2007
Loretta Castille does her best to raise her daughter alone. Since her late husband died in prison, she's been even more careful not to expose her young daughter to any evil influence. Still, new neighbor Luc Carter might look dangerous, but surely he's a nice guy. After all, what kind of criminal would run a bed and breakfast for his grandmother?
After his run-ins with the law, Luc Carter plans to serve out his time in the tiny town of Indigo and then get on with his life. He doesn't count on falling for anyone local, but Loretta hits him like an unexpected tackle. Any sort of family is dangerous, but a beautiful woman with a charming child is worse than dangerous--especially when Luc knows he's not the only one who'd get hurt.
Set in the Cajun country outside of New Orleans, A SECOND CHANCE picks up the rhythm of the French/American mingling, the combination of old-world charm and new-world sensibilities, and all of the complexities--and joy that family can bring. Because Luc isn't just a criminal--he's been the man responsible for almost destroying his entire family.
Author Kara Lennox (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Lennox) spins a delightful story of family and love. He is the ultimate bad-boy--but is it really possible that the love of the right woman can tame even Luk?
