Book Description

Rachel Fortier, a thirty-something home design consultant, has had it with her fiancé. It's bad enough that he gave her a Thighmaster for Valentine's Day and a Butt Buster for her birthday, and that their seven-year engagement has no end in sight. But she just learned that he's had a vasectomy! Rachel packs up and heads south to meet her great-aunt Gizelle for the first time and take a few days to regroup. She imagines a Grandma Walton living in a picturesque house surrounded by wondrous nature. What she finds is a cabin on stilts deep in the bayous, with alligators and snakes the size of telephone poles. As for Aunt Gizelle, she's a former taxidermist who can outcreep Hannibal Lechter any day of the week.
And if that isn't enough to make a girl turn around and head right back to her ex, Gizelle is feuding with a Cajun bad boy -Remy LeDeux, a helicopter pilot and Air Force vet whose face is scarred from battle. Rene wants to buy a piece of property from Gizelle, but the feisty senior makes it clear she wants nothing to do with any LeDeux. But the moment Remy sees Rachel getting out of a red truck, it's love at first sight for the long-time bachelor, despite all the turmoil she brings into his life, with her ideas of Feng Shui-ing his houseboat and her ex chasing after her, not to mention her great-aunt threatening to shoot his heinie. But getting Rachel to say "I do" is worth it. After all, he's never met a woman before who looks at him like he's a Whitmans Sampler box and she's a chocoholic.

About the Author

Sandra Hill lives in the middle of chaos, surrounded by a husband, four sons, a live-in girlfriend, two grandchildren, a male German Shepherd the size of a horse, and five cats. Each of them is more outrageous than the other. Sometimes three other dogs come to visit. No wonder she has developed a zany sense of humor. And the clutter is neverending: golf clubs, skis, wrestling gear, baseball bats and gloves, tennis rackets, mountain climbing ropes, fishing rods, bikes, exercise equipment. . . . Sandra and her stockbroker husband, Robert, own two cottages on a world-renowned fishing stream (which are supposed to be refuges), two condos in Myrtle Beach (which are too far away to be used), and seven Dominoes Pizza stores (don't ask!). One son and his significant other had Sandra's first grandchild at home with an Amish midwife. Another son says he won't marry his longtime girlfriend unless they can have a Star Wars wedding. Another son at twenty-three fashions himself the Donald Trump of Central Pennsylvania. A fourth son . . . well, you get the picture. Robert and Sandra love their sons dearly, but Robert says they are boomerangs: They keep coming back. Sandra says it must be a sign of what good parents they are, that the boys want to be with them. No wonder Sandra likes to escape to the library in her home, which is luckily soundproof, where she can dwell in the more sane, laugh-out-loud world of her Cajuns. When asked by others where Sandra got her marvelous sense of humor, her husband and sons just gape. They don't think she's funny at all. Sandra is a USA Today, New York Times extended and Waldenbooks bestselling author of fifteen novels and four novellas. All of her books are heavy on humor and sizzle. Little do Sandra's husband and sons know what she's doing in that library. ::grin::

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended September 10, 2003
By C. Penn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When her relationship with her fiancé goes up in flames, Rachel Fortier sets their furniture and exercise equipment on fire. Then she heads south in a rented red pickup truck with a vanity license plate reading "Redhot" and a bumper sticker reading "Decorators do it better". Rachel looks forward to meeting her birth grandmother Gizelle and enjoying some down time. Rachel expects Tara, she gets swamp and a Voodoo grandmother who does not approve of her new love interest.
His face disfigured during Desert Storm, pilot Remy LeDeux expects rejection, not the heated response of this Yankee woman. Remy needs to buy some of Gizelle's adjoining land so he has enough acreage to meet DEA requirements so he can do aerial surveillance for the government. Instead, all he can think about is Rachel applying Feng Shui to his houseboat in the bayou, thanks to his Tante Lulu's interference. The explosive heat building between Remy and Rachel threatens to set the bayou ablaze, but they really know very little about each other, and their erotic promise may reach an unexpected peak as they discover the magic of the bayou.
From senior citizen diva Tante Lulu to local Voodoo witch Gizelle, author Sandra Hill creates a rich cast of characters guaranteed to entertain in TALL, DARK AND CAJUN. Outrageous antics and lively hilarity keeps the pace brisk as Remy and Rachel discover the heat of the Louisiana bayou. Author Hill has a gift for combining humor and sensitivity in a rich tale that will keep the pages turning. While TALL, DARK AND CAJUN is the sequel of LOVE POTION, it works just as well as a standalone. With a rich Cajun flavor adding just the right zest, TALL, DARK AND CAJUN comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tall, Dark, and Yummy August 17, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Feng Shui decorator, Rachel Fortier, decides to ditch her fiancé and head to the Louisiana Bayou to meet her grandmother. She was thinking Tara and found something closer to the Beverly Hillbillies. As soon as she steps out the car, she meets Remy LeDeux. Both of them feel like they've been struck by lightning.

The first 10 pages were amusing, and the rest of the book was downright laugh out loud funny. Imagine putting Grandma Mazur in the Bayou with a wad of tobacco in her mouth and you'll get the idea. The SHEWIE level was off the scale. You'll need to splash ice water on yourself between giggle fits. The novel has everything from drug runners, to big hair to keep you interested from beginning to end.
If you like Jennifer Crusie, Carly Phillips and Janet Evanovich, you should love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book! September 9, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The characters were great in this book! All of them totally unique and not a boring one in the bunch! It's hard to decide who was my favorite!
Remy had been in a helicopter crash while fighting for his country, was severely burned, had 17 operations and was permanently scarred. After knowing each other for less than two weeks, Remy trusted Rachel enough to tell her his accident resulted in sterility. He'd never told anyone before and it was apparent this bothered him deeply and made him feel lacking as a man. Rachel's reaction is to break up with him because he hadn't "been honest" with her. What she should have done was be happy that he was able to share this with her and reassure him that it didn't matter if he couldn't father a child. Instead she validated his fears and made it look as if her real reason for leaving him was that he couldn't give her children. While I understand her need for honesty it was unrealistic of her to expect a person to blurt out something like this when they first met.
But irregardless, I really enjoyed this book. It was a great follow-up to "Love Potion" and I'm looking forward to Charmain's story!

Format:Mass Market Paperback
After dumping her fiancée, Rachel Fortier leaves D.C. in a red hot truck, and heads for Louisiana, the home of the grandmother she has never met. When Rachel reaches her destination, she finds eccentric, little old ladies, a machete-welding cousin, and Cajun hunks. One hunk in particular catches her eye and she is awestruck!!

Remy LeDeux, equally awestruck by the sexy redhead, now has more on his mind than talking a crazy old lady into selling him some of her land to secure his business deal with the DEA. Remy is sexually revved up, and Mais oui, he wants Rachel bad!

Regardless of Rachel's intial reluctance, she becomes quite fond of her stay in Cajun country. As a Feng Shui decorator, she takes on a couple of jobs for LeDeux family members, one being Remy's houseboat on the bayou. During all the craze, Remy and Rachel hit it off, and the sex between them is sizzling hot. However, they each have emotional scars that threaten a lasting relationship.

Oh, wow...this book was fantastic!!! Like it says on the cover, it is spicy and fun!! Remy and Rachel's story is awesome but also characters are revisited from The Love Potion, such as Luc and Sylvie, their marriage is still going strong. Tee-John is growing into quite a sexy young man, he will one day make a yummy Cajun hero for sure. Also, Tante Lulu, what a riot that little old lady still is! Sandra Hill out did herself with TALL, DARK, AND CAJUN and happily the next LeDeux story is set up, which is sure to become as eagerly anticipated by readers as Remy's story was. Don't miss this book! L'aissez les bon temps roulez...let the good times roll.

I enjoyed this very much - it was just a bit different enough from the usual romance. The Cajun dialect didn't seem quite real to me, but I could be mistaken! A nice read anyway.
