Run away to the Gulf Coast...

Come sit on the front porch with everyone's Aunt Glinda and have a glass of tea or a strong cup of Cajun coffee. Sit and enjoy the views and the company of the locals of Bon Chance and Lafayette. Stop by one of the local shops for lunch or dinner and enjoy the daily special. After, stop by the local watering hole and let the bartender serve you up your favorite drink. Nighttime entertainment? We've got that too. From festivals to live music to a quiet game of pool, we've got you covered. During football season, you can always find a place to watch your favorite team. We have a little something here for everyone, and we can't wait to share it with you.

Come pass a good time with the Boonies of Bon Chance!

"Blue Jeans and Gemstones"

Fiesty business owner, Gemma St. John, spends her days building "Bite Me," her sandwich shop. After a bitter divorce, the last thing she's looking for is a tall, dark Cajun man to complicate her life. However, a few spins on the dance floor with Jasper Leblanc sends her senses reeling. Will Jasper prove to be the man to finally treasure her heart?

"Saving Grace"

Rescued in a New Orleans alley, Furby has been Grace's comfort and constant companion. After he is injured, his fearless personality and determination encourages Grace to let go of the past and embrace the future with Gabriel.

"Saved by the Bell"

As a female football coach, Taylor Campbell has spent her career proving herself with no time for herself or a relationship. Making the state high school playoffs brings her to New Orleans and back to Luke Walker, her college boyfriend. The enchanting Chateau Rouge Hotel has a few plans to make sure these two former lovers have the chance to rekindle that old flame. Will Taylor win the playoffs and the heart of a coach?

MORE FREEBIES! I had to pick this one up because it is set in Louisiana. I've been missing my New Orleans honeymoon. Sighsss.

- Blue Jeans and Gemstones
I liked Gemma and I did like Jasper. However, I didn't like them together to be frank here. Maybe we need more time with them to see the love. Yes, yes, the lust is there, but I didn't FEEL it. More time is needed for me. 2 stars. 

- Saving Grace
This my absolute favorite one. I loved them and I loved that dog!! Soooo good. I feel like I could read a full length of them, but I am completely satisfied with the short story too. I shall stamp this one with a 5.

- Saved by the Bell
This one was cute. I loved the mix of Football. I also loved the fact that Taylor (the heroine of the story) is the football coach instead of the dude. It was a nice twist! Love it! And omg that hotel reminded me of the one I stayed at. Sighssss this gave me such FOMO. I want to go back! I'll give this one 5 stars too. 

I really enjoyed this short story, short anthology. Honestly...I wish there were more in it! It gave a nice taste of NOLA and Louisiana. I would like to read more by this author and more romances set down there. Such a romantic place! I'll stamp this with 4 stars.
