Editorial Reviews


"Sandra Hill always tells a delightfully humorous story with a unique twist. Once again, she uses that well-tested formula to create THE LOVE POTION. Readers will chuckle as they get caught up in the romantic sparring and all the madcap adventures. Then the chemistry between Lucien and Sylvie turns erotic, and their talk about his reaction to the love potion becomes show and tell! THE LOVE POTION is definitely a read-again book, just to make sure you didn't miss anything. It's a hoot!" -- Vicki Patterson for BOOKBUG ON THE WEB

"THE LOVE POTION combines the steamy Cajun atmosphere of `The Big Easy' with the humor of a screwball comedy... (It) is a terrific read..." -- Susan Duncan for THE ROMANCE READER

"The hilarious, fun-loving, steamy, breathtaking tale of passion between a `Bad Boy of the Bayou" and an extremely shy, aristocratic Creole chemist is sure to be another bestseller for Ms. Hill. This is one book that any one who has read Sandra Hill in the past will not want to miss. Also, if you have never read a Sandra Hill book, this delightful book would be a good jumping off point." -- Lori Bradley for BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE:

"The very talented Sandra Hill adds to her already impressive list of reading gems with this delightfully funny and sexy tale." -- Jill Smith for ROMANTIC TIMES --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Dr. Silvie Fontaine and bad boy attorney Lucien LeDeux have never gotten along. They've had bad blood between them since childhood. But they've also carried an attraction for the other that neither of them will acknowledge aloud. Enter into the equation "the jelly bean fix"--a new drug Silvie is working on that has the physical implications of Viagra, while simultaneously stimulating the emotions of the subject--and you have the jist of this novel.
This is Hill at her wittiest and sexiest. The dialogue was hilarious, the relationship between the hero and heroine was intriguing, and the plot threw enough twists and turns to keep my attention. This is the perfect lighthearted, romantic comedy to read if you need a little pick-me-up.

I loved this book. I don't think I have laughed so much while reading a book in a while. Luc and Sylvie are great! Sylvie has created a love potion that is taken in the form of a jelly bean. It has not yet been tested on humans only on her furry companions Sampson and Delhila and it has been very very sucessfull with them. They can't keep their paws off each other. Luc is a dark, sexy cajun, lawyer who is known as "the swamp lawyer" has to ask Sylvie a favor. He would rather die then have to do that! While he is busy tormenting and teasing her he eats one of her special jelly beans. What happens when two people who despise (not!) each other are now drawn to each other? Why they help to keep the Louisiana bayou all the steamier of course! Throw in some danger from those that feel Sylvie is messing with Voodoo, Luc's 78 year old aunt with purple hair who rides a Harley and knits things for Luc's hopechest, two horney rats in a Happy Meal box, and you have the makings of a great weekend read!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I have read of Ms Hill's and if this story is any indication of what she is capable of, then I have to say I have been missing out on some fantastic books. I am truly hooked on this author now and I am going to dig her other books out and read them as soon as possible. Lucien LeDeux has been labeled 'bad boy of the bayou' since childhood and for good reason, as he has made the label a self-fulfilling prophecy with his audacious teasing of the Creole-born Sylvie Fontaine. He issues a threat to her at a school dance when they were both thirteen, that they would one day slow dance in the nude. Now twenty years later, he still feels a strong urge to shock and dismay her. Luc is a lawyer and his brother's dilemma demands that he seek Sylvie's expertise as a chemist to test contaminated bayou water for oil spillage from his father's company. Upon his arrival in her lab, he encounters her in the midst of a secret experiment and as always he 'rattles her cage' and in the chaos he unintentionally eats her jelly beans that is loaded with a love potion that she has invented. She was on the verge of testing it on a human subject and is freaked out when her childhood nemesis gulps down the potion that she knows will make him sexually hungry for her. At this point is when the fun begins! I absolutely loved this story! It is outrageously funny and the romance is wonderful. Not only was the story of the hero and heroine great but the secondary characters were enjoyable as well, from Luc's lovable little aunt Tante Lulu to Samson and Delilah, Sylvie's 'in love lab rats', this story held my interest from the first to the last page. This book is a romance reader's dream!

Sandra Hill sure knows how to get her readers' attention! This book was wonderful from start to finish. I loved the story and the characters.
Sylvie a "Creole Princess", has been tormented for years by Luc, the "Swamp Solicitor", and now she's stuck with him - at least until the love potion he inadvertently consumed wears off. But what the unlikely twosome don't count on is being on the run together.
Hilarious! This well written romp will keep you chuckling even after the last page has turned.
Here's hoping Ms. Hill plans stories for Luc's brothers and his sister. If they're as good as this one, I'd buy them in a second. I guar-an-tee!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book deserves more than 5 stars! Sandra Hill is by far my favorite author. She blends a perfect dash of humor with romance and adventure. She didn't dissapoint in this funny tale of a lawyer known as the 'Swamp Solicitor' in Southern Louisiana named Luc LeDeux who walks into a chemist's lab to have a sample tested and accidentally consumes a handful of the chemist's 'love potion' in the form of jelly beans!
The chemist, Dr. Sylvie Fontaine has been working hard on the love potion and hasn't yet had it tested on humans when Luc comes in and eats her potion! What to do?! Well first of all, she is horrified it was taken by the well-known 'bay-boy-of-the-bayou' and the fact that test trails have only been done on rats! Luc is already a walking mix of testosterone and male ego when he takes the potion he is more than straight-laced Sylvie can handle. I was laughing so hard with the things that happen between them and how she tries hard to keep track of his feelings on a notepad and how she asks him the most personal questions to find out how well her potion is working! Will the potion cause them to fall in love or will it fade away? Is someone trying to steal the potion? This book will keep you turning the pages to find out and along the way, you meet some very funny characters including Luc's wily aunt Lulu who can't stop meddling into his love life, his two nosey brothers and his sister who thinks everyone ought to have 'pouf' in their hair. This is a sure pleaser and right along track with Ms Hill's usual flair and wit. The love scenes are HOT with a capital H and what I love most about Ms Hill's female characters are that they are never really gorgeous or beautiful on the outside, just normal, average women with realistic problems. But her men...
