I absolutely love this book. I fell in love with each one of the characters from the very beginning. I could not put it down. I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next. This book was an extremely HOT read and I highly recommend it to everyone.
Allie always thought that she could predict love and happiness with women. People came to her pastry shop for advice on anything from the great spirits. However Allie was just very good at reading people and figuring out what they wanted to hear. She is asked to be a part of a short cruise to help out with the desserts. She knew that she had to do it because it would bring more business to her shop. She also knew that things were going to change for her, but she just did not know if they were going to be a bad or good things.
Marc grew up with the belief that his family was cursed. He believed that he nor his siblings would be happy or even be able to marry and have a wife and family. So he and his siblings decided never to get married. Even his father never got married. When he took over the family business everything kept going wrong. He was not sure if it was a specific person on his boat that brought the bad luck or the family curse following him everywhere.
Marc kept denying he wanted Allie and that he was still in love with her. Allie decided to just go with the flow. There were a bunch of little things that kept happening on the ship, but they could happen to any ship. People were just starting to wonder if it was cursed or just because it was an old ship. Because it was family business Marc and his brothers and sister tried their best to keep everyone happy so that no one would demand a refund and the family wouldn’t go bankrupt. It was just strange to everyone that it could be the curse that his family always believed in.
A girl like her comes around once a century?
For ninety-nine years, every man in the Dumont family has remained a perpetual bachelor. Residents of Cedar Bayou, Louisiana, whisper about a voodoo hex cast upon the family, sabotaging each man’s chance at marriage. In truth, the Dumont men have their own player personalities to blame, and Marc is no exception. As captain of his family’s riverboat, he’s broken hearts up and down the Mississippi. That is, until his high school crush strolls onboard...
Allie Mauvais rocks the boat when she fills in as pastry chef. She hasn’t seen Marc since senior year, when rumors flew that her great-great-grandmother was the one who cursed the Dumonts. After two weeks on the water, neither can deny the attraction that still burns between them. But to truly reach Marc’s heart, Allie must show him that the hex is all in his head and it’ll take more than her mouthwatering sweets to prove it. Will Allie’s love be enough to finally make Marc hers?
