Overview

Luke Benedict figures he's the only one in Turn-Coupe, Louisiana, who can save novelist Aril Halstead from someone intent on revenge. If only he could get April to cooperate.

Years ago, Luke had let April down—in the worst possible way. She's never been able to forgive him and she still doesn't want anything to do with the man she once loved.

But that's not about to stop Luke. He'd never turn his back on a friend—especially one whose life is in danger. And if he's got to kidnap a woman who despises him to keep her safe, he will. 'Cause down in Louisiana, this man will do whatever it takes….

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the second installment of her Turn-Coupe, La., series (after Kane), Blake introduces her newest heroine, famed romance author April Halstead. April's life is threatened when she decides to use one of Luke Benedict's ancestors in her latest book. Although Luke's family would prefer that April "not stir up something that could rear up and bite them," Luke feels obligated to protect her, presumably because the pair had once been high school sweethearts. When April ends up on the wrong end of some nasty phone calls, a drive-by shooting and a boat explosion, Luke whisks her off in his luxurious pontoon boat where the inevitable love affair begins. Their idyllic respite is short-lived when they are discovered; soon, April is forced to draw upon her own resources to save herself. Blake offers countless insights into the joys and torments of being a popular author. (Mar.)
Library Journal
When romance writer April Halstead becomes the target of deadly vengeance, Luke Benedict is determined to save her—whether she wants him to or not—in this sultry, suspenseful Southern charmer that was originally published in 1999 by Harlequin's Mira imprint and is second in Blake's "Louisiana Gentleman" series about the Benedicts of Turn-Coupe, LA.

Meet the Author

Jennifer Blake was born near Goldonna, Louisiana, in her grandparents' 120-year-old hand-built cottage. She grew up on an eighty-acre farm in the rolling hills of northern Louisiana. While married and raising her children, she became a voracious reader. At last, she set out to write a book of her own. That first book was followed by more than forty others, and today they have reached more than nine million copies in print, making Jennifer Blake one of the best-selling romance authors of our time. Her most recent novel is Love's Wild Desire.
Jennifer and her husband live near Quitman, Louisiana, in a house styled after old Southern planters' cottages.
