Product Description

Product Description

Rachel Fortier, a thirty-something home design consultant, has had it with her fiancé. It's bad enough that he gave her a Thighmaster for Valentine's Day and a Butt Buster for her birthday, and that their seven-year engagement has no end in sight. But she just learned that he's had a vasectomy! Rachel packs up and heads south to meet her great-aunt Gizelle for the first time and take a few days to regroup. She imagines a Grandma Walton living in a picturesque house surrounded by wondrous nature. What she finds is a cabin on stilts deep in the bayous, with alligators and snakes the size of telephone poles. As for Aunt Gizelle, she's a former taxidermist who can outcreep Hannibal Lechter any day of the week.
And if that isn't enough to make a girl turn around and head right back to her ex, Gizelle is feuding with a Cajun bad boy -Remy LeDeux, a helicopter pilot and Air Force vet whose face is scarred from battle. Rene wants to buy a piece of property from Gizelle, but the feisty senior makes it clear she wants nothing to do with any LeDeux. But the moment Remy sees Rachel getting out of a red truck, it's love at first sight for the long-time bachelor, despite all the turmoil she brings into his life, with her ideas of Feng Shui-ing his houseboat and her ex chasing after her, not to mention her great-aunt threatening to shoot his heinie. But getting Rachel to say "I do" is worth it. After all, he's never met a woman before who looks at him like he's a Whitmans Sampler box and she's a chocoholic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bullseye! Right on Target!! 6 Jan 2004
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sandra Hill continually trods where no tepid writer dares and gives some wonderfully original books. I loved many of her Time-Travelling Vikings who refused to stay put in their own time, and her last - Very Virile Viking was one gem! It's hard to do humour and get consistent good reviews, because what strikes our funnybones is free-ranging and vastly different from person to person. Having been raised on both sides of the Pond, I see Yanks not get Brit humour and Brits sniff at what passes for American jokes.

I was raised in Scotland and Britain and I delight in the humour and their quirkiness. Same for the places I have lived in the US, mostly Kentucky - truly full of characters. But I have a great aunt down near the Big Easy, so New Orleans and the area holds a soft spot in my heart as well. Another place that truly appreciate humour and the offbeat. Believe me, I have a younger brother who thinks he is a Party-on-down-Cher, Cajun!

So, I was really looking forward to Hill's Tall, Dark and Cajun. And I must say, I hurt from laughing after reading this wonderful, charming and witty book!

Thoroughly Yankee Rachel Fortier wants romance in her life - and her jerks fiancé thinks keeping her buns and abs in perfect tone is romantic. The snooty decorator decides a change of pace is needed - and a change in men, and envisions dropping in on her gran's cabin in the bayou is a picturesque destination. Only her bottled water ways is about to come a cropper as she lands on grannie's bit of swampland. The log-cabin on stilts - al la Clampete decor - and is hardly what she had in mind. Neither were some of the other complications. There is a whole mess of cajun characters angling for the old ladies land, including the sexy, bedroom eyed, Remy LeDeux.

4.0 out of 5 stars hot and fiery 10 Nov 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
great romance story set in the sweaty humid bayous of louisiana. rachel has just found her family and goes down to visit it them where she has a lust at first sight with a local cajun guy Remy. the attraction is mutual obviously and they spent a lot of time getting to know each other a lot better. both have been hurt by life in the past and the is a major roadblock to their happiness, will they work it out?? feel that is part of a series as there is some back story brought into this book, but is still good as a stand alone. lots of colourful cajun characters and a crocodile named useless as they are pretty much useless to people. lots of sizzling chemistry between rachel and remy that just keeps y'all turning the pages!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER WINNER FROM SANDRA HILL 27 July 2003
By Chgreng
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Remy LeDeux we have a wounded warrior, a wonderful Cajun attitude and way with women, who could resist him, if he was real it would'nt be me. Sandra Hill again brings joy to the reader, with a book that is erotic and sensual but not TOO overt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 11 Sep 2003
By C. Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When her relationship with her fiancé goes up in flames, Rachel Fortier sets their furniture and exercise equipment on fire. Then she heads south in a rented red pickup truck with a vanity license plate reading "Redhot" and a bumper sticker reading "Decorators do it better". Rachel looks forward to meeting her birth grandmother Gizelle and enjoying some down time. Rachel expects Tara, she gets swamp and a Voodoo grandmother who does not approve of her new love interest.
His face disfigured during Desert Storm, pilot Remy LeDeux expects rejection, not the heated response of this Yankee woman. Remy needs to buy some of Gizelle's adjoining land so he has enough acreage to meet DEA requirements so he can do aerial surveillance for the government. Instead, all he can think about is Rachel applying Feng Shui to his houseboat in the bayou, thanks to his Tante Lulu's interference. The explosive heat building between Remy and Rachel threatens to set the bayou ablaze, but they really know very little about each other, and their erotic promise may reach an unexpected peak as they discover the magic of the bayou.
From senior citizen diva Tante Lulu to local Voodoo witch Gizelle, author Sandra Hill creates a rich cast of characters guaranteed to entertain in TALL, DARK AND CAJUN. Outrageous antics and lively hilarity keeps the pace brisk as Remy and Rachel discover the heat of the Louisiana bayou. Author Hill has a gift for combining humor and sensitivity in a rich tale that will keep the pages turning. While TALL, DARK AND CAJUN is the sequel of LOVE POTION, it works just as well as a standalone. With a rich Cajun flavor adding just the right zest, TALL, DARK AND CAJUN comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tall, Dark, and Yummy 17 Aug 2003
By E. Arthur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Feng Shui decorator, Rachel Fortier, decides to ditch her fiancé and head to the Louisiana Bayou to meet her grandmother. She was thinking Tara and found something closer to the Beverly Hillbillies. As soon as she steps out the car, she meets Remy LeDeux. Both of them feel like they've been struck by lightning.

The first 10 pages were amusing, and the rest of the book was downright laugh out loud funny. Imagine putting Grandma Mazur in the Bayou with a wad of tobacco in her mouth and you'll get the idea. The SHEWIE level was off the scale. You'll need to splash ice water on yourself between giggle fits. The novel has everything from drug runners, to big hair to keep you interested from beginning to end.
If you like Jennifer Crusie, Carly Phillips and Janet Evanovich, you should love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book! 9 Sep 2003
By mahikahn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The characters were great in this book! All of them totally unique and not a boring one in the bunch! It's hard to decide who was my favorite!
Remy had been in a helicopter crash while fighting for his country, was severely burned, had 17 operations and was permanently scarred. After knowing each other for less than two weeks, Remy trusted Rachel enough to tell her his accident resulted in sterility. He'd never told anyone before and it was apparent this bothered him deeply and made him feel lacking as a man. Rachel's reaction is to break up with him because he hadn't "been honest" with her. What she should have done was be happy that he was able to share this with her and reassure him that it didn't matter if he couldn't father a child. Instead she validated his fears and made it look as if her real reason for leaving him was that he couldn't give her children. While I understand her need for honesty it was unrealistic of her to expect a person to blurt out something like this when they first met.
But irregardless, I really enjoyed this book. It was a great follow-up to "Love Potion" and I'm looking forward to Charmain's story!

5.0 out of 5 stars The long anticipated sequel to THE LOVE POTION...... 2 July 2003
By Elizabeth Benway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After dumping her fiancée, Rachel Fortier leaves D.C. in a red hot truck, and heads for Louisiana, the home of the grandmother she has never met. When Rachel reaches her destination, she finds eccentric, little old ladies, a machete-welding cousin, and Cajun hunks. One hunk in particular catches her eye and she is awestruck!!

Remy LeDeux, equally awestruck by the sexy redhead, now has more on his mind than talking a crazy old lady into selling him some of her land to secure his business deal with the DEA. Remy is sexually revved up, and Mais oui, he wants Rachel bad!

Regardless of Rachel's intial reluctance, she becomes quite fond of her stay in Cajun country. As a Feng Shui decorator, she takes on a couple of jobs for LeDeux family members, one being Remy's houseboat on the bayou. During all the craze, Remy and Rachel hit it off, and the sex between them is sizzling hot. However, they each have emotional scars that threaten a lasting relationship.

Oh, wow...this book was fantastic!!! Like it says on the cover, it is spicy and fun!! Remy and Rachel's story is awesome but also characters are revisited from The Love Potion, such as Luc and Sylvie, their marriage is still going strong. Tee-John is growing into quite a sexy young man, he will one day make a yummy Cajun hero for sure. Also, Tante Lulu, what a riot that little old lady still is! Sandra Hill out did herself with TALL, DARK, AND CAJUN and happily the next LeDeux story is set up, which is sure to become as eagerly anticipated by readers as Remy's story was. Don't miss this book! L'aissez les bon temps roulez...let the good times roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mon Dieu, hotter than the cajun sun, the Le Deuxs are back! 8 July 2003
By Tracy Talley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The long anticipated sequel to "Love Potion" is everything I'd hoped it would be and more. Plenty of humor Sandra Hill stlye and tons of romance and all that cajun sex appeal mixed into one firecracker of a book.
We get to catch up once again with the funniest family in Loo-zee-ana, whoo-ee! The infamous Le Deuxs of the swamp.
Tante Lulu; the aunt who loves to change her hair color every day it seems and doesn't care if she's 80 or not.
Charmaine; the sister who has Texas hair even though she's in cajun country and goes through men faster than you can say Mason Dixon.
Little Tee-John and Rene who don't know the Civil War is over.
Luc and Sylvie from 'Love Potion'; they prove the more kids, the merrier.
Last but not at all least, the hero of this tale, Remy Le Deux. Bachelor extordrinaire and hottest cajun man in the swamps! Oh yeah, also former Air Force pilot and flew in Desert Storm...looks great in uniform and has a secret...hmmmm....
What could make this even better?
Well, mix in a woman who practices Feng Shui, or as Tante Lulu says, 'fungus-way', from D.C who goes down to meet her grandmother for the first time, also the rival neighbor of the Le Deuxs and ex-taxidermist Gizelle Fortier, oh and her cousin Beau who thinks mullets are what all the hot guys are sportin' this far south and you have what decorator Rachel Fortier thinks is one screwy bunch of people.
Fresh from a break-up with her doctor fiance who thught her butt and abs needed toning, Rachel embarks on a trip down south to meet her family for the first time. What she finds is her grandmother holding a shotgun yelling at two strangely handsome guys dressed up like a cowboys in the overgrown yard and the 'mansion' she envisioned in her mind's eye as the Gone With the Wind Tara is a cabin on stilts!
Things only seem to get weirder when she finds herself attracted to one of the 'cowboy rivals' named Remy who also seems deeply attracted to her.
Trouble brews when these two find out that the families aren't too happy about this and to avoid another civil war they try to cool their heels and get in even deeper.
Can the mini-skirted great-aunt bring these two together at last? Or will grandma Gizelle shoot Remy before he can cross the porch?
A bundle of laughs and some truly touching moments that only Ms. Hill can deliver. As funny as the prequel 'Love Potion' and just as sexy. Ms. Hill lives up to her nickname once again as the Queen of Romantic Comedy!
Sit back, enjoy this romp through the bayou once again to Bayou Black and the crazy Le Deuxs and meet the equally funny Fortiers. Trust me, you wont be sorry.
And as Remmy would say...Laissez les bon temps rouler. Let the good times roll! ...
