Roxanne King left New York a mess. Divorced and jobless. Blackballed from big city police departments. She landed in Papillon due to a connection with the sheriff, but never intended for her stay to be permanent.
Zep Guidry. Around Papillon, he’s the bad boy, the pretty boy, the guy with no ambition that gets by on his looks and charms. But it’s all an act. He is a caregiver and would do anything and give up everything for those he cares about.
One night together wasn’t enough . . . But can Zep convince Roxie to give him more?
This story was absolutely perfect! Zep was everything. He just needed to understand his self worth so others could as well. And, Roxie was a study in figuring out what you really want out of life and learning what makes you happy. I adored when she realized that her impact in a sleepy little town was much greater than she ever could have imagined.
I love them as a couple. Roxie standing up for Zep. Zep helping Roxie see just how well she does fit in. Arrests as flirting and foreplay. Real emotions. Mythical creatures and investigations. Bayou Dreaming had everything you didn’t expect and I loved every minute of it! 5 stars!
The town bad boy might just be the man of her dreams.
Bayou Dreaming, an all-new heartfelt romance from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is available now!
New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake’s heartfelt contemporary romance set in Louisiana’s Butterfly Bayou
Roxanne King left the big city looking for a simpler life, but after years of proving herself on a SWAT team in New York City, being deputy in a sleepy Louisiana parish is something of an adjustment. She’s settling in, but she knows she made some mistakes in the beginning–Zep Guidry being the worst of them. Zep drifts through life on his looks and Cajun charm. Roxie learned the hard way he’s not for her.
Zep is a man who knows what he wants, and what he wants is Roxie. He’s just not sure how to get her. They spent one hot night together a year before and now all the lovely deputy seems interested in doing to him is arresting him. He’s not used to a woman he can’t charm, but Roxie seems immune. He’s determined to win her back by any means necessary. Including becoming the kind of man she desires.
And when Roxie’s past comes calling, it might be the opportunity Zep needs to show Roxie that the town bad boy might just be the man of her dreams.
