From the New York Times bestselling author of the Cajun series comes an enemies-to-lovers romance that's "just too fun and steamy to miss." (Fresh Fiction)
René LeDeux's burned out by D.C. politics and only wants to build his cabin in peace. But if his wacky, matchmaking great-aunt has her way, Bayou Black's prodigal son will be hitched before the summer's over. And when Valerie "Ice" Breaux, René's high school crush turned nemesis, is abducted by René's activist friends, it starts to look like Tante Lulu just may get her wish.
Mon Dieu! It's bad enough being kidnapped, but did she have to land in the lap of the most irritating, sexiest hunk she's ever laid her eyes on? Now Val's stranded in René's remote cabin, besieged by irrepressible LeDeux relations, not to mention a dingbat duo out to save the swamp.
It's a heat wave, guar-an-teed! Val vows she'll give her heart to the Cajun bad boy when alligators fly. René swears to get the girl who got away. It's never been steamier in the bayou than with two people this red-hot with desire...and more than ready for love.
"Some like it hot and hilarious, and Hill delivers both."--Publishers Weekly on The Cajun Cowboy
Burned out as a Washington, D.C., environmental lobbyist, Ren LeDeux retreats to his remote Louisiana Bayou Black cabin to regroup at the start of Hill's spicy conclusion to her Cajun Bad Boy series (Tall Dark and Cajun, etc.). In temporary residence is Tante Lulu, Ren 's 79-year-old matchmaking great-aunt, who's in her usual rare form, planting plastic St. Jude statues all over the place, stitching up bridal quilts for those wild Cajun nephews of hers and waiting for the "love thunderbolt" to strike. When a couple of Ren 's eccentric "tree-hugging" pals kidnap TV anchorwoman Valerie Breaux and abandon her on Ren 's doorstep, Tante Lulu figures her prayers have been answered. Not Ren ; the last thing he wants is a woman in his world, especially Val, with whom he shared an embarrassing high school sexual disaster. Ditto for Val. Recently canned for refusing to spice up her news stories with tabloid-style segments, she just wants to get back and raise hell about her dismissal. But Tante Lulu (and St. Jude) have other ideas. While the ending is a little overdone, Hill's thigh-slapping humor and thoughtful look at the endangered Louisiana bayou ecosystem turn this into an engaging read.
