Book #3 CAJUN MAGIC Series
Entangled Publishing
A little magic goes a long way…
Alexandra Belle Boyette is closing in on the big 3-0 and her mama has made it her mission to marry her off. In the tiny town of Bayou Miste, deep in the Louisiana swamps, finding suitable hubby material can be a challenge—and Alex would rather not rely on magical spells to do the trick. But there is a sexy new man in town who might fit the bill...
Ed Marceaux is in Bayou Miste to safeguard a key witness to a Louisiana Mafia murder. He must keep an eye out for suspicious characters—but the place seems to be full of them! What could be stranger than a woman dressed in a sexy nightgown chasing a naked man down the street? The enchantingly gorgeous Alex Boyette certainly makes it worth his while to find out…
Add a Voodoo spell gone wrong, and voila! madness—and love—ensues.

Excerpt

Bayou Miste, Louisiana

She flung her hand out, bouncing it off the empty pillow beside her. The velvet pouch bumped against her fingers.

“Sport?”

After a brief pause, a cold, wet nose poked up over the side of the bed.

“I’m so lucky to have you.” She ran her hand over his velvety snout. A long tongue snaked out and licked her fingers.

Sport was always there for her without being annoying or obsessive. She shivered. She’d had her share of boyfriends and stalkers. She’d rather remain celibate than go through that again.

But deep down, she ached for that closeness. And hell, she hadn’t had sex since Theo, and that hadn’t been stellar, she wondered if she remembered how to have good sex. Was she going to die one of those frigid old maids destined to read erotic romance novels to get her jollies?

I’m pathetic.

And her mother would drive her stark-raving mad if she didn’t quit shoving fresh meat at her every chance she got. “Oh, Sport, I wish you were a man. That would solve all my problems.” She settled against her pillow and closed her eyes. “It would take a lot of magic to get my mother to back off. I’m not even sure having my own choice of a boyfriend will satisfy the woman.” She yawned and snuggled in, pulling the comforter up to her chin to ward off the chill of the air conditioner.

As she drifted into a half-awake, half-asleep state, the bed sank down on the far side. Sport had leaped up beside her. Too tired to tell him to get down, she gave up and let go.

A thrumming sound filled her dreams, building into a full bass echo of drums. Somewhere in the back of her sleep-numbed mind, she recognized the drums as those that played at the Voodoo ceremonies Madame LeBieu conducted on those rare occasions when a little extra oomph was needed to initiate one of her spells.
Just as Alex succumbed to oblivion, an eerie chant echoed through her head. Wishes come true. Wishes come true. Wishes come true.

She sighed and gave in to the magic.

If only wishes really came true.

I haven't been to Louisiana in 25 years, but I loved taking the steamboat down the Mississippi. By reading Deja Voodoo, I would love some voodoo in my life! The perfect man and some fun adventures!

Pamela Scott said...

Love the spirit of life in Louisiana and the people. They take great pride in their state and it's heritage and proudly share it. And simply love Cajun food, the fun, the laughter, the love.

Elle James said...

Stephanie, the steamboat trip down the Mississippi is on my bucket list. Will have to con my sister into going with me on another research trip...hmmm

Elle James said...

Pamela,
I could eat my way across Louisiana. Love me some gumbo and jamalaya! My hubby is from Louisiana, so we have gumbo often!

catedid said...

I have not been to Louisiana but I love reading stories set in New Orleans. They make the French Quarter sound so romantic and the accent of the people is to die for.

Regina Ross said...

I've never been there but have heard a lot of great things about Louisiana :)

I've never been to Louisiana,but i would love to try some gumbo and jambalaya.

My dad used to talk about his years in Louisiana playing guitar in a band. I love Mardi Gras, the excitement, the beautiful masks & gowns, the dangerous, naughty feelings of the festivals.

NoraA said...

I've never had a chance to visit New Orleans but I'm a big fan of the food. I watch all the Cajun cooking shows and have read a number of books that take place there. One day I'll have the money to go to Mardi Gras and visit all the famous chefs I've learned from over the years.

lindseye said...

Love the food in New Orleans and walking around the French Quarter.

cu2006r said...

It's hard to decide what's best about New Orleans and Louisiana as a whole. I'm going to have to admit that all the history surrounding that area of the United States is probably my biggest draw since I do love history. But, wait, there is the wonderful food and the men's accents...

Tammy Sommervold said...

My birthday is around Mardi Gras no better way to celebrate.

Quilt Lady said...

I have never been to Louisiana, but have heard so much about the people and the food. I think the people are a lot like they are in my hometown. I hope to someday get to go there. Your books sound fabulous and would love to read them.

I loved the food in New Orleans. Not so much the weather in July though.
I also loved visiting the French Quarter and the many fabulous restaurants there. I liked the drink called a " sazerac" (Not sure of the spelling)

I love all the haunting things about Louisanna

Elle James said...

New Orleans is one of my favorite places to visit. Like Cu2005r said, the history is rich, the food is richer and the fun over the top. But now that I've been air boat riding on the bayous...coo weee! I love me some air boat time!

Gemma Juliana said...

Louisiana people are so real! I've only been to New Orleans once but found it very creepy... felt the voodoo in the very air I was breathing, layered over a long time. We drove from Florida to Texas once and I just loved the bridge over the bayou part. It stirred my creative juices and I wanted to plot a murder mystery.

Beautiful Disaster said...

I've never been to Louisiana however it all sounds good to me except the alligators.
Thanks :-)

Linda Rorex said...

I like the friendly people of Louisiana and Mardi Gras is fabulous.

Elle James said...

I can't believe no one said they liked alligators. I think they make the bayou so interesting. I got to pet a 12 foot alligator on my air boat tour. It was awesome!

Meljprincess said...

I would have to say Voodoo and alligators. I know a lot about both topics.
Elle, I would really enjoy these books. DO THAT VOODOO YOU KNOW SO WELL! :-)

I love everything about NOLA! The mystique, the location, the people, the atmosphere, the history, and the FOOD!! I loved it when I visited the last time, but I had two babies in tow with me, and could not enjoy all NOLA had to offer or see everything I wanted to see.
