New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is back with an all-new heartwarming, small-town contemporary romance series set against the spicy southern backdrop of Louisiana's Butterfly Bayou.
Life in Dallas took a tragic turn for nurse practitioner Lila Daley. In need of a fresh start, she retreats to Papillon, Louisiana, a tiny town on the bayou. Sure she's greeted by a gator, finds herself in the middle of golf cart wars, and unwittingly adopts a scruffy dog, but Lila remains undaunted. She's focused on running the town's medical clinic, but fitting into the quirky community is harder than she imagined.
As a single dad, Sheriff Armie LaVigne embraces routine. But there is nothing routine about the town's newest resident. Lila is a gorgeous fish out of water and he’s ready to catch her. In fact, in no time at all, Armie knows Lila is the woman for him and he plans to win her heart. But when the past threatens their happiness, Armie will have to decide if he has the courage to trust Lila enough to find a true happily ever after

It’s a Lexi Blake novel so what’s not to love? Lila Daley life changed in an instant. A friend is attacked and she is taken hostage leaving her with a new outlook. One that includes not being able to enter the hospital she works at any longer. So to be closer to her sister she moves to Papillion, Louisiana taking over the small town clinic there.
Lila meets local sheriff Armie LeVeigne when he gives her a ticket and asks her out. Armie takes a lot to warm up to him, at least he did for me. He seemed a bit flippant until Lila is in danger again. Maybe it was just me that thought him that way. By the end of the book I had warmed up to him and liked him.
This was a good read and I enjoyed it, maybe not as much as I as did some previous books from Lexi Blake but hey, not every hero can be Ian.
