5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating conclusion to a wonderful series 28 Aug 2002
By Sharon Galligar Chance - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All good things have to come to an end, and Jennifer Blake's Louisiana Gentlemen series concludes with the fascinating story of brother Wade.
This series has featured the Benedict family of Turn-Coupe, a strongly connected family whose history dates back to the earliest days of the southern state of Louisiana. This clan is tight-knit, with the brothers and cousins coming to the aid of their kinfolk when needed, and in Wade's case, help is needed big-time.
Wade Benedict sets out on a mission to fulfill a dying wish of his friend, a mission that will ultimately alter his life forever. Traveling to the Middle East to rescue the daughter of his friend, Wade is surprised to find that the intended rescuee, Chloe Madison, is reluctant to be rescued at all.
Chloe Madison has lived in the country of Hazaristan for many years and lives in fear of her stepbrother's tyrantical rule over the family. After her mother's death, Chloe always dreamed of returning to America, to live with her father, but that dream seemed just that, only a fantasy. That is, until she literally runs into a tall, dark American who seems intent on taking her away from the primitive culture she has come to know. As much as Chloe longs to take the Wade Benedict's offer to help her leave, she knows that these actions will bring on the rage of her stepbrother, and the possible torture of her family. But after learning that she was to be sold in marriage, Chloe discovers that she must leave now, or face dire consequences.
Taking Wade up on his offer, the two soon find themselves running for their lives as they flee to America. But even on home shores, they soon find that the evil has followed them to the heart of Wade's family. Would their closeness and blossoming love survive the events to follow?
Taking a page from current events, Jennifer Blake concludes her Benedict family series on a dazzling note. Bringing the entire family together to finish out the story is brilliant and gives a great sense of closure for her fans.
Blake describes the agony she went through trying to decide how to finish this series, which she was in the process of writing during the time of the attacks on America. She has done a very admirable job of capturing the desperate feelings and dire circumstances of women caught in the primitive culture of the Middle East. This is wonderful conclusion to her series, and a fascinating look at current events combined with a heartbreaking love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply moving ending to Louisiana Gentlemen series 9 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I never thought Jennifer Blake could create a character that I felt more deeply about than LUKE, another in the Louisiana Gentlemen seires,but she's done it with WADE. The heroine, Chloe Madison, finds herself is such a typical female quandry - torn between duty and her true desires - that this book reaches you on a level far above the fascinating storyline. A must read! Then get your hands on KANE, ROAN, LUKE AND CLAY to see what else you've missed. No one can make you long to meet a Southern Gentlemen better than Blake!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Different and Very In Depth! 7 Mar 2003
By Tracy Talley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a very different and interesting plot than the usual fare. This is about the Taliban and how one woman becomes trapped in a country exactly like Afghanistan and how one man tries to get her out.
So different from what we normally see in romance, this was brilliant. Written right before the terrorist attacks, the book almost never was released. I am glad it was. Ms Blake takes us into a frightening world where everything is black and white and there is no room for error. Where women are second class citizens and treated worse than rodents.
This is a tale about an American woman trapped inside with no hope of escape and about her father's last dying wish to get her out.
Wade is that man. Former military with the Special forces, he sneaks into the war torn country and tries to convince the woman to leave with him. Afraid and without hope, she shrinks away from the bold American risking his neck to fulfill a last wish.
With the Taliban onto him, Wade must make a decision, leave the frightened woman behind and save himself, or drag her out against her will and risk being caught.
Heart-pounding and action-packed, this is a must-read. I stopped short of 5 stars because of the unrealistic ending. Without revealing anything, it wasn't up to par with the rest of the amazing book.
A well worth read!

5.0 out of 5 stars An eyeopening experience! 3 Oct 2003
By "marriedtoaheel" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was very impressed with Jennifer Blake's story of Chloe and Wade. Although this book does stray from Blake's usual tale of rural Louisiana life, it is well written and reflects the political climate of our time. The references made to the RAWA movement and the harships women suffer under the Taliban rule had a huge impact on me. I truly enjoyed this book and it will be saved on my "Books to keep shelf". Additionally if you enjoy Suzanne Brockmann, I think you will like this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars READY for the next! 17 April 2003
By Detra Fitch - Published on Amazon.com
Wade Benedict, fulfilling his friend's final wish that his daughter be rescued from the Arabian land where she moved with her mother. Unfortunately, despite the harsh conditions, or rather, because of them, the lady in question, does not want to be rescued, preferring to stay, fighting for freedom. Wade, however, will go to any length to get her out, though when Chloe realizes she can continue her work back home in Louisiana, and that her cruel stepbrother's plans for her marriage to gain her money will place her life into a literal hell, she agrees.
The battle to get out of the country is bloody, but they manage to survive, only to find that it has followed them home, and is not a Jihad, a holy war, that pulls in the entire clan into even more fights, barely escaping with their lives. Perhaps of equal importance are the battles of the heart Chloe and Wade face as they must decide what to do with the relationship they have found themselves suddenly to be in, each with their own issues to face before they can claim the love that awaits them, if they survive.
***** In the most exciting novel of the series, WADE concludes Ms Blake's Bayou Brothers line, making me sorry I have missed all but one of the others, if they are all this fine.
Readers get to catch up with characters who have surely become their friends in past books, and to meet a dynamic new couple. Heart pounding excitement never lets up, though romantic interludes amidst it all light up the pages with passion instead of gunfire. Every character is vibrantly drawn, and the storyline is one that could be ripped from current life as the Taliban and their world seem to haunt our everyday lives. Brava, Ms. Blake. Perhaps she can find another Benedict cousin hiding in the swamplands, if we are lucky.
