The Red-Hot Cajun

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! While it may be officially spring here, the gloomy sky outside my office window doesn't make it feel much like spring. Hopefully that will change. At least there are some sunny-looking flowers blooming in the flower beds already--the crocuses are going to town!

Meanwhile, though, I'll just stay inside with my cup of sore-throat tea and my stack of books until it warms up outside. I hope you'll do the same when you can. First up this week, the paperback release of Bertrice Small's Until You
Until You
(Signet Eclipse) is here. I reviewed this one when it came out in trade paperback some time ago, though, so I won't review it again. You can find the original here.

Next is Sandra Hill's new one, The Red-Hot Cajun
The Red-Hot Cajun
(Warner Forever), with one of her sexiest and funniest heroes yet. Val Breaux finds herself kidnapped. Kind of. And stuck in the bayou with Rene LeDeux, the sexiest man she's ever known. But he's so not her type. Not now and not way back in high school. Maybe. Sandra Hill is one of the funniest romance authors around, and this book hits near the top of my list of faves of all her books. Rene is too sexy for words, and he and Val make the bayou even steamier than normal. You'll be laughing out loud at this one, and you definitely want a fan and an icy drink handy while you're reading. This one's earned four and a half of Cupid's five arrows. I hated to see this one end.

Then we have new author Lydia Joyce and her first romance, The Veil of Night
The Veil of Night
(Signet Eclipse). Lady Victoria Wakefield hasn't much of a plan when she confronts Byron Stratford, Duke of Raeburn, about her brother's debts, but she's unprepared for his offer. Still, a week spent at his whim isn't something she's willing to turn down, no matter the real reason for it. While 'gothic' is mentioned in relation to this book, it's not a gothic in the tradition of Victoria Holt gothic. This is more erotic historical romance than anything else, with a hero who happens to have a secret, but he's not any danger to the heroine. Still, it was an enjoyable way to pass a few hours, and I look forward to seeing what Ms. Joyce comes up with next. This one's earned three and a half arrows.

Finally, we have the latest 'Goddess' story from P. C. Cast, Goddess of Light
Goddess of Light
(Berkley). This time designer Pamela Gray inadvertantly summons Artemis, and finds herself falling for Apollo. Of course, she doesn't know who he really is.... I liked this one even better than the last, and, since this one is set in Las Vegas, Artemis can get into all sorts of trouble. The happy ending for Pamela and Apollo is hard to reach, and all the sweeter when it finally comes. I'm giving this one four arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
