Scientist Maryse Robicheaux thought that a lot of her problems had gone away with her mother-in-law’s death. The woman was rude, pushy, manipulative and used her considerable wealth to run herd over the entire town of Mudbug, Louisiana.
Unfortunately, death doesn’t slow down Helena one bit.
DEA Agent Luc LeJeune is wondering what his undercover assignment investigating the sexy scientist has gotten him into – especially as it seems someone wants her dead. Keeping his secrets while protecting Maryse proves to be easier than fighting his attraction for the brainy beauty.

More folks should read this book.
This story is very well written, with engaging characters and a fast pace. I live in a desert, and love it, so I was surprised to find I could easily feel the protagonist’s love for the bayou; the fetid, mosquito and alligator infested swamp I can never love. It takes an accomplished writer to evoke those feelings so now I’m going to find and read every story I can by Jana DeLeon.
Too bad it's so homophobic
This was a fairly well-written book up until the point at which several homophobic remarks were made by characters within a few pages. Even if it's set in the South, we've still entered the 21st century, where these kinds of remarks are unwelcome and seen for the bigoted nonsense they are-unnecessary to move the plot along or develop characters.
