Publisher’s Description:

Lady Genevieve ‘Genie’ Toft’s heart has always beat for one gentleman in particular.

The Duke of Valdeston.

Determined to finally win his love, she and her Spinster Sisters set out to trap the elusive duke.
A scheme that might involve the occasional ax and willingness do whatever it takes to woo him.

But her plans and heart are shattered in a single moment that leaves Genie lost and wondering if the gleam she’d seen in the duke’s eyes was ever there.

Francis Cullip is a man who’s not been left with many choices in life, which includes marrying the woman he wants.
Forced to keep his adoration for Genie to himself, he’s more determined than ever to break free of the darkness that’s kept them apart.
But playing with fire could risk lives and the happiness of everyone they know.

But some passions can’t stay tamed forever.

What is Genie willing to give up to be with the man she loves?
Which path will Francis choose, the safer route or the one that could lead to joy?

My Thoughts:

Having read all of this series, I can say up front that they are getting more sensual by the book. Previous series by this author were all sweet/clean books with only kissing involved and not passionate kisses at that.
This book is much more intimate in nature with somewhat descriptive scenes. Being a fan of both types of romance novels this does not turn me off.
I was happy to see our hero and heroine finally come together after we were introduced to them in previous books.
Francis and Genie have always been in love with each other but this fact has been a secret to others thus far.
Is Francis ready to make things happen between them and what is Genie willing to give up for the man she loves?
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. Since her previous novels have been the clean sort I found the authors writing of intimate scenes a bit lacking.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book from the author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

True Southern romance to sigh over.

“Adam” is a companion novella to Jennifer’s Louisiana Knights Series.

Continue the romantic adventures of the Benedict clan with LANCELOT OF THE PINES, on Countdown now:

From small-town charmers to the elite of New Orleans, these three novellas capture all the grit, passion and allure of the Deep South, as well as its buried lies and secrets.

Meet Adam, Rip and Hunter: Three true gentlemen–fiercely protective, devoted and capable of the deepest love, with the integrity to do the right thing no matter the consequences. Three Southern men true to themselves and true to the women they desperately want to love and to be loved by.

Rip was a dirt-poor kid from the wrong side of town when he first saw Anna in the shining costume of a Christmas fairy and fell head over heels in love.

Although he always knew she was above his touch, he became her self-appointed protector. Until he was falsely accused of robbing a service station and railroaded into prison.

Now he’s back, and determined to redeem himself. But the same enemy that sent him to prison in the first place will stop at nothing to keep him away from Anna–and away from past secrets too painful to be revealed.

Adrienne is only at the Mardi Gras masked ball to help her father succeed with his first case as a PI–an adultery investigation of their society hostess–and to distract the woman’s too handsome possible lover.

Hunter is there for his own purposes, but doesn’t mind the distraction. Because the closer he gets to Adrienne, the more determined he becomes to discover her secrets.

As the evening advances, the two of them whirl closer and closer in their intricate game of cat-and-mouse. But who is seducing whom, and what will happen at midnight when their masks come off?

Adam Benedict is certain Lara Bancroft is hiding her aunt, a woman wanted for murder, in the old mansion she’s inherited in the small town of Turn-Coupe.

Lara’s Aunt Kim shot her abusive husband, yes, but in self defense. And given the dead man’s crime family connections, Lara fears her aunt won’t make it to a trial.

When mafia goons show up, it’s a fight for survival, one in which only trust in the unique psychic connection Lara shares with Adam can keep them alive. But reading Adam’s mind could be even more dangerous to her heart.
