Synopsis

"Blake's style is as steamy as a still July night on the bayou, as overwhelmingly hot as Cajun spice." -Chicago Tribune

She was living in fear...

Beautiful, young widow Elise Laffont embraces her freedom during the daylight hours, running the farm she loves so dearly, but the night brings with it painful reminders of the torment she endured at the hands of her abusive husband. Fate may have taken her husband, but it hasn't erased the scars he left, and Elise wonders if she will ever be able to bear the touch of a man again.

He was a man torn by desire...

From the moment he laid eyes on the beautiful widow, Reynaud Chevalier wanted her. When disaster offers him the chance to claim her as his own, Reynaud seizes the opportunity to bind Elise to him, unaware that behind her determined bravado lays a heart shattered by the past.

Praise for Jennifer Blake:

"Full of Blake's captivating historical detail, rich, sensual atmosphere, and the intelligent banter and dialogue that make her characters so unique." -Affaire de Coeur

"Blake's a master at romantic fiction." -Chattanooga Times
