If you want slow and sensuous, if you want to paddle softly in a pirogue through a bayou at midnight, if you want a strong, gorgeous, mysterious, dark and brooding lover at the end of your journey, buy this book. It's the next best thing. Sandra Brown is at her best in this evocative book about Schyler Crandall, who returns to her native Heaven, Louisiana after many years abroad to find her ailing father's logging business in danger, and her beloved family estate, Belle Terre, in danger of being lost. Schuyler's hateful sister and ne'er-do-well husband live at Belle Terre, but seem unable to save either the business or the estate. More exasperating, when Schuyler rolls up her sleeves to get to work, her sister's envy and hatred threaten to keep her from succeeding. Enter the aforementioned lover, Cash Boudreaux, a native Cajun whose chip on his shoulder is equal only to his irresistable fascination for women. And Schuyler, who has known him from childhood, is not immune,...
This book is an example of Sandra Brown at her very best. In fact, I don't think anything else she's written has even come close to the emotional rollercoaster ride you get with this one. Now, admittedly, Cash is not a hero for everyone; he is rude, crude, opinionated and just too sexy for words, but Schyler is more than a match for him. And I just loved the secondary characters of Gayla and Jimmy Don; their own love story just tore at my heart. I bought this book when it first came out and recently re-read and believe me, it stands the test of time and very few books can do that. Bravo to Ms. Brown and please, please write another book that's as emotional and steamy as this one.
This book has been reviewed umpteen times, so adding mine to the mix seems a little redundant, but I felt like I could share some information that might make the decision of whether or not to read this book easier for others.
I wanted to read this years ago, but after reading reviews chock-full of less than positive things to say about the "hero," I postponed actually doing so until very recently. I'm glad that I finally read it, because both the book and Cash weren't as bad as I thought they'd be. The plot isn't anything groundbreaking, and if you've read a romance or two, you can pretty much predict what's going to happen. The heroine isn't particularly special, in my view - she had moments where she was strong, and others when she could've used more of a backbone. She and Cash do have quite a bit of chemistry and sexual tension, though, which is more than enough to hold the reader's interest.
