"Outrageously Funny Contemporary Romance"

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!
