Actually 2.5 Stars

Jennifer Blake has a real talent for setting up the atmosphere of a book. Every time I read one of a books, I fall into, not necessarily because of the plot but because of the setting.

I loved this book! Was a great romance with some mystery thrown in.
Romance is where you find it, and love.

If you are looking for the quinessential all-male hero with a heart of gold, Roan is your man. I fell in love with him the first time I read this book. I can still hear the rain on that old roof in that afternoon scene.
I'm really into this Benedict clan,they all have their charms.Roan is the second of the five Benedicts that I've read.I'm excited to reads for the remaining Benedicts.
This is a good book in the Louisiana Gentleman trilogy, though I read it out of order. Oh well. An enjoyable read for a romance.

I liked the cover so I grabbed it at the Library and it was pretty good. Now I want to read the rest of the series.
