Romance ignites amidst the tumult of a territory striving to find its identity as it passes from pre-colonial rule to US statehood and beyond. Parts 1 and 2 of the Louisiana History Collection present these lush, politically tense historical romances in chronological order.

PART 1:

FIERCE EDEN
Reynaud, half Natchez Indian, requires that Elise share his bedroll in exchange for saving her friends during an uprising. Widowed after a brutish marriage, Elise fears intimacy more than the Natchez. How can she view Reynaud as an enemy after his tender introduction to love?

LOUISIANA DAWN
Cyrene rescues a handsome rake from drowning for the sake of his silver lace. In return, she requests he relieve her of her tiresome virginity. She expects to be her own woman afterward…but fails to reckon with René’s skill or her own lonely heart.

EMBRACE AND CONQUER
Félicité despises the Irish colonel who marches into New Orleans with the Spanish conquerors; pride demands she escape from his beguiling embrace. Will he let her go, or follow into the trap of a pirate’s lair?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
FOR EMBRACE AND CONQUER:
"Skillfully developed plot twists, elaborate descriptions and lush prose should keep Blake's fans happy."
Romance Reviews
FOR EMBRACE AND CONQUER
"This is a fantastic novel, full of adventure, brutality, lust and love. It's got pirates. It's got it all."
Romantic Times
FOR FIERCE EDEN:
"The lyrical flow of language and even pacing of the action of this novel will keep readers glued to the pages. Ms. Blake's characters are warm, real people and her descriptions are lush and sumptuous. There is no doubt in my mind that fans of Ms. Blake and readers who are interested in colonial America will adore Fierce Eden."
Love Notes
FOR LOUISIANA DAWN:
"Jennifer Blake is back--and better than ever! In her biggest romance yet, 18th century Louisiana is the setting for a steamy tale of passion, intrigue and danger."
