Stephanie is on a mission. She sets out on a perilous charade to find her missing sister. When she steps off the floor of Chez Sophia, she is frightened; but, this is something she must do. She has no idea that what she is about to find is a man who will have her surrendering to his every charm as she falls under his spell. But is his enchantment and soft Cajun voice enough to melt her heart?

Jake Broussard is a bartender and ex-cop who immediately sees through Stephanie’s act. He realizes in this town of beautiful women, wealthy men, and heady champagne; she needs an ally. He soon sees her as one of the beautiful women that he wishes to get to know, but he never expected to fall in love.

The way Jake speaks to her in the soft Cajun voice, you can practically feel the heat rise up from the pages of this book. I loved the way he wanted to take care of Stephanie.

This is my first book by Toni Blake. It won’t be my last. I liked the way she blended romance with heated passion. I loved the New Orleans setting. Hot, seductive and alluring action draws the reader in until the last page. Stephanie is compassionate and Jake, the hero, is charming. The characters are so engaging that once the book is finished, it is hard to forget them. The storyline was truly touching and the chemistry between the two so hot that heat burned between every page. Ms. Blake’s writing is extremely powerful. She allows her characters to emit feelings that draw the reader into the story from beginning to end. This book has heart…you cannot go wrong in reading it. A keeper!
