Book 2 in the Nightstar series When Jace Beauchene, guitarist for Murder City Ravens, goes home to confront his unhappy childhood, he finds instead the sexiest woman in the world.
Seeing the broken-down old plantation house all gussied up and new makes him realize he can’t go back, and Beverley Christmas makes him want more for his future. She lights up his nights, dazzles his days, makes him want more than he has a right to. But he’ll take it. Beverley didn’t realize men like Jace existed. Rampantly, unashamedly sexy, he shows her how to live, how to open up to new experiences. She’s spent most of her life learning her trade in the great kitchens of the world; now Jace shows her what bedrooms are for. And every other room in the house. But their paths lie in different directions. Unless they can find a way to combine what they both want, their red-hot affair will leave them both burned.
Jace and Beverley deserve happiness and they find it in each other. This story shows the conflicts and what it takes for love to conquer them. It shows a hero willing to work with the heroine (after she almost leaves him) to make it work and make her happy.
Born on the Bayou kept me there with the characters and made me not want to leave. I loved Jace and what he overcame to get where he is. Beverley is the same way for me. They deserve to be happy together. I can’t wait to read more about this couple in future Nightstar books.
