Anne-Marie is the odd girl out you might say, the shy different girl from the other belle of the balls. Lucien aka Dark Angel is the ultimate bad boy your mother warned you about. However Anne-Marie tames the Dark Angel as she did her panther... Through love and possibly shrimp puffs, lol.

Anyways it was a good quick read. Minor defects but can be overlooked except when Lucien takes Anne-Marie driving, they left with a single drawn chase yet down the road they had a team and a wag...more
I think that historical romance may be growing on me. I was never a huge fan, but the more I read, the more I actually like. Out of the Dark is one of the books that is helping to change my mind.

Anne-Marie is a strong woman who doesn’t seem to care what others think about her ‘strangeness.’ Maybe that’s the mind set that kept me from liking historical fiction to begin with.

I like Jennifer Blake stories and was excited to get one from free from Amazon! I was not disappointed in this one either. She paints a beautiful picture and creates characters that you love. Her writing is beautiful and the story flows very nicely. Ms. Blake does an outstanding job of building a believable world and creating wonderful characters in a short amount of time.

I held back on giving this one 5 stars for a couple of reasons. One, I like a bit more tension in my stories. I like the thri...more
I liked the book. It had a good, solid storyline and got out of the starting gate with lightning speed. Alas, the last couple chapters sort of petered out. They just needed more substance to work. The characters were strong, opinionated and likeable, but their relationship got too "lovey dovey" and sickly sweet at the end. Their love wasn't hard fought for as the beginning clearly led the reader to believe. It just needed more savory to go with the sweet at the end to give the conclusion more bo...more
Wow,once again the author Jennifer Blake has written the story brilliantly. I really love reading her romance stories. I really love the intense moments between the hero and the heroine. Love their talk after the wedding. And mostly the loveable panther !!

I am surprised how much I enjoy this story. I like both the hero and heroine who are sensible characters. I was especially moved by the conversation they had at their wedding night. The way the hero express his love was beautiful.

This was a nice little novella that I enjoyed. I will look for more from this author. Historical romance set in Louisiana.
Beautiful story! Loved it!
