I was introduced to Ms. Blake when I read "Kane." Whiled I thought "Kane" was just all right, I thought "Luke" was much better.

The heroine, April Halstead, is a writer who's been suffering from a seriously bad case of writers block and dealing with threats for her to stop working on her current project. Luke Benedict comes from the family April is writing her next book about. He takes it upon himself to protect her from her would-be assailants and whisks her away on his pontoon boat to the midd...more
Will the hero induce the heroine to fall in love with him by the end of Jennifer Blake's novel, Luke? Of course, its a romance novel and the heroine, April Halstead, just happens to be a romance novelist. A romance novelist with an evil enemy out to destroy her. Luckily, Luke shows up to save April -- from herself.
I liked the characters and the story. There was a bit of an ick factor as Luke initially forced his presence on April when she did not want to see him. It felt like stalking to me. But all ends well. Loved the setting.
I read this before I joined Goodreads so rating it as I remember it.

1 star - Didn't like it
Just Ok. The plot really didn't grab me as I hoped but still a good little read to past the time.
Nice romance taking place in the Louisiana Bayou. Good read.

“Moistening her lips, she asked, "That's what this is all about? Bringing me here?"

His hesitation was so slight she almost missed it. "It could be. Probably is, after all."

"You still want to seduce me."

"I want whatever you can give me," he murmured against her ear. "Where we go from here may depend on what I can give you.”
