2nd in Louisiana Gentlemen series
Second in the series of the Turn-Coupe Benedict clan of the Louisiana Bayou. Can Luke save April Halstead this time after he let April down years ago?
In Turn-Coupe, Louisiana Luke Benedict hears the stalker threatening romance writer April Halstead while she is a guest on a radio show. He immediately races over to her home, but receives a chilly reception because the twosome has a history together in which he failed her thirteen years ago. April wonders what happened to her secure world. First, her ex-spouse wants to return, a concept she abhors. Then the stalker has assailed her via the Internet, telephone, and mail. Now the worst, Luke, who she still loves, has arrived on the scene
Luke plans to ignore April's wishes that he leaves her alone. Instead, he decides to protect the only person he has ever loved even if he has to kidnap her. However, Luke,s intentions fail as April's determined enemy abducts her, leaving it up to him to save his beloved.
With LUKE, Jennifer Blake demonstrates why she is one of the most highly regarded romance writers of all times. The story line is filled with fried emotions, plenty of action, and a first love that just will not quit, overcoming false pride. The lead characters are warm and charming, though the villains are more cartoonish than real in nature. The award winning Ms. Blake appears to have written another international best seller.
