As wild and mysterious as the Louisiana swamp he called home, Lucky Doucet was a dangerously attractive Cajun no woman could handle. His solitary life left no room for the likes of elegant Serena Sheridan, but Lucky couldn't deny her desperate need to find her missing grandfather. He would help her, but nothing more--yet once he felt the lure of the flaxen-haired beauty, an adventurer like Lucky couldn't help playing with fire. Serena felt unnerved, aroused, and excited by the ruggedly sensual renegade whose gaze burned her with its heat, but she did not dare tangle with a rebel whose intensity was overwhelming, who claimed his heart was off limits? Deeper and deeper they traveled into the steamy bayou, until with one electrifying kiss her resistance melted into liquid desire. And the devilish rogue found he'd do anything to make Serena Lucky's lady.… (mais)

Serena Sheridan has come home to her family's farm in Louisiana for a vacation, but when she arrives, her grandfather has escaped to the swamp and refuses to come home and her twin sister and her brother-in-law are in the process of selling her family's home to an unscrupulous and environmentally irresponsible company. The only way to get to where her grandfather is hiding is Lucky Doucet. At first Lucky wants nothing to do with Serena, but it isn't long before he realizes that she is going to need help, so he reluctantly takes her into the swamp thinking that he will drop her off at her grandfather's shack, leaving Serena in his care, but nothing goes the way it is supposed to on this trip and he sees that his involvement with the Sheridan family has just begun.
In 1992 when this book was originally published, the effects of PTSD were just coming into the common, public consciousness, making this story way ahead of its time in acknowledging the long term repercussions. Also at this time, the author was combining her talent at writing romance novels with her desire to write strictly suspense. I love the novels that she wrote during this period and wish she would write more. Overall, this is a good romantic suspense with very engaging characters. ( )

I just couldn't get into this book. It started right off with hostility between snooty heroine Doc Serena and scurvy hero Lucky. It seemed like everyone was arguing all the time. For every paragraph of dialog were two pages of thinking about it so it wasn't long before I started skimming and eventually gave up.

I thoroughly enjoyed this title. When I lived in Houston, TX for a short time, we would sometimes go over to Louisiana and in various small towns, one could hear the sharing of conversation in Cajun French. Conversations always seemed a little more heartfelt as one would listen. For anyone that is familiar, this book will strike a beautiful chord. For anyone not familiar, one will find an introduction to a rich heritage. I learned that this was a transitional title for the author's work - I'll let you find a copy to discover my meaning by your own reading. You will not be disappointed. The story combines many layers of family relationships, the layers of environmental dynamics all in the midst of an intriguing love story. Enjoy! ( )

Pretty much your typical early-90's romance. I liked the plot of the story, even though it could be way too generic in places. Etienne "Lucky" Doucet (I love that name, so much) is, again, your typical romantic hero. Big, broad, and brooding. He has a difficult past and, of course, that has caused him to become reclusive and apt to hold everyone at arm's length or further. Basically, the warrior with the heart of gold. For some reason, though, some of his secrets – especially one that is rather pertinent to Serena – never comes out. I don't know why we didn't get to see him telling her (or her finding out in some way). He knew hers. Serena started off great for me. She has a mouth on her. Unfortunately, she only used it on Lucky. She let her terrible twin sister get away with murder (almost literally) without ever really confronting her. She figured out what her grandfather was doing with her, and let him get away with it. She just had to see the good in everyone and that eventually put her in a too stupid to live scenario. While it was definitely a hero propping moment, there were better ways to get to it than to make her look incredibly dumb.

While there is a lot that is typical about this story, and the way the romance evolves, I have to say that I loved the setting. Thankfully I'm not from Louisiana, so I can feel that way. It is a neat setting for a book, and not in the usual Louisiana setting of New Orleans.

Overall, a somewhat enjoyable read. I just wish some of the characters got more of a comeuppance and that Serena made me facepalm a lot less. ( )
