Hot... When reporter Celine Arseneux entered The Playpen, a Baton Rouge club for men and women. She never expected John LeDeux to swagger up to her. Sure, the bayou's notorious bad boy is pure sex on the hoof, but even with her expose on the line, Celine refuses to be a conquest left cryin' in her crayfish--at least not again. Not for a man who doesn't remember her!
Bothered... Detective LeDeux has always been too hot to handle, but now he's on fire as the cop who posed as a gigolo to bust the Dixie Mafia. Joining Tante Lulu's treasure hunt seems a fine way to avoid the media ruckus--until Celine pursues her story deep into the bayou, stoking John's hazy memories of a sizzling night five years ago.
And ready to take it all off! Lovers and pirates and gangsters--oh my! It's another wild ride with Jinx Inc., where trouble is no match for a cagey Cajun matchmaker...and love conquers all.
There is a soft spot in my heart for Tee-John. We first met him in Love Potion, when all 3 of his adult brothers wonder think they are his daddy! He's about 10 years old and full of mischief. This story finds John an adult now and a police detective. He is faced with a woman who'd been a "one night stand" some 5-6 years ago. And of course sparks fly. Celine Arseneaux is a reporter who get caught up while trying to write a story, and ends up in John's back pocket. Of course, he doesn't know that she has a son, and that he is the father of that son. Secrets are revealed and all heck breaks lose. Add in our favorite ex-amish navy seal, cuban heart throb, matchmaking aunt, an ex-hells angel and an ex nun and you have Wild Jinx. It is a fun read, but not my favorite of the series. At the end they all discover that there are 2 more LeDoux boys. Hmm! I sense some more Jinx coming on?!
