A one-lane road through the bayou is a bad place to be when a tropical storm moves ashore in Southeast Louisiana, but that’s where Rachel Thierry finds herself. Forced to take shelter in an old cabin, she quickly learns her childhood crush Etienne Broussard is just as hot as ever, with some spicy tastes that match her own.
Dominique Adair’s short novella The Cajun takes us into the swamps for a quick ride as Rachel and Etienne ride out the storm, well, just the way we expect them to after a mysterious alligator points them in the right direction. Except for the niggling issue of whether locals who should know better would really be out driving around in a tropical storm and admittedly I’m probably only wondering about that as a longtime LA resident the story is fun and sexy and has just the right amount of tension between the two characters.
A quick ride, but a fun one, chere!
