Kate McDonnell wants to escape her hectic city life. A week-long getaway to her friend’s quiet small-town home should be just what she needs to recharge—but when sexy sheriff Andre Dufresne stops by, her vacation takes a turn she didn’t expect.
Kate’s not looking for love—she just broke her engagement with her scoundrel fiancé, and Bayou Sabine is just a temporary refuge. But when Andre turns on the charm, she wonders: would a light-hearted fling really be so bad?
Andre is smitten, and will do anything to win Kate over. He’s never met a woman quite like her, and he’s not about to let her slip away. But the clock is ticking for Kate, and as she gets closer to Andre, she makes a mistake that could ruin everything. Can she slow down long enough to listen to her heart, or will her fear of being hurt again ruin any chance they have at love?
Fans of Alice Clayton and Jennifer Crusie will delight in this lighthearted romantic romp.
Orchid lives in a small cabin behind Madame Mireille’s big burlesque house. There’s barely room enough for herself, let alone her growing daughter. Ginger is in a similar situation, living with her young son Roger on Madame’s seaside estate. It’s been more than a year since Orchid has worked, and she’s sincerely indebted to Madame, but she can’t live in such cramped quarters much longer.
When Madame Mireille takes the children for a car trip, Orchid catches a saucy burlesque performance… but the sight of her lover Petra dancing for all those leering “jerks” and holidaymakers makes her jealous beyond belief. Perhaps Petra will join her by the seaside to remind her there are certain things the burlesque beauties only do for each other?
But what about Orchid and Ginger’s housing situation? They can’t bring themselves to ask Madame for more space. Can precious Petra find a solution?
