Leaving Blue Bayou

An Anthology

Leaving Blue Bayou by JoAnn Ross

Author’s Note: “Cajun Heat” and  “Love Potion #9” were light erotic romance novellas I wrote for fun and to work with a long-time dear editor friend who’s since passed on. They were written for Kensington’s Brava imprint and never intended to be marketed as one of my small town romances as this book, from its cover, appears to be. Also, they’re not part of my Callahan Brothers trilogy set in Blue Bayou. I did enjoy writing them, and if you enjoy edgier sexy stories, I hope you’ll enjoy reading them.

“Dear Santa”, on the other hand, is a small town Christmas romance I wrote for the Silver Bells anthology for Kensington and is more in keeping with my Shelter Bay type stories.

Except it’s the wrong list–Gabe finds the right one, and he intends to fulfill every blissful one of them…

Love Potion #9

What’s worse is that she’s falling hard for the outrageously sexy hunk. Pretty soon they’re both finding that the steamy Savannah nights are perfect for conjuring up some mischievous magic of their own…
