Bayou Beloved by Lexi Blake is now live!
When a woman returns home to Louisiana's Butterfly Bayou, her high school crush finally notices she exists, in a small-town contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.
Quaid Havery always planned to follow in his father's footsteps. He went to law school and then came home to take over his dad's legal practice. Being the only lawyer in small-town Papillon, Quaid is pretty sure he's seen everything. After all, he was once asked to sue an alligator for defamation of character. He's prepared for anything the town can throw at him, until he encounters Jayna Cardet. She's gorgeous, smart, funny, and unlike any woman he's met before...Except he has.
Jayna never thought she'd return to Papillon, but when her life gets turned around she must learn to live in the close-knit community again. She certainly never dreamed she would practice law in her little town, but she finds herself in the courtroom, and the opposing counsel is her former high school crush, Quaid. It wouldn't be so bad if the man had developed a beer belly, but Quaid is more handsome than ever. And instead of ignoring her like he did in high school, he's made it plain that he wants to get to know her.
Thus begins a courtship destined to end in a wedding or a war. Either way, the locals are popping some corn and eagerly awaiting the outcome.

Quaid Havery has always lived in his small town except for his college and law school years. He knows everyone in the quirky town and tries to do his best by them and help them out of any situation they find themselves in now that he's the only lawyer available to them since his father's passing. Well, that was until Jayna showed up and started accepting clients.
Jayna Cardet has just returned to Papillon, Louisiana, after her life turned upside down, it's the one place she never wanted to go back to, but life threw her a curve ball. Jayna couldn't wait to get out of the trailer park she lived in as a kid and knew the only way out was to go to college, so she did everything she could to ensure she would get a scholarship to make that happen. Her time here is only temporary, though; she is determined to get herself a job with a different law firm and move to wherever the job takes her.
Quaid and Jayna have great chemistry both inside and outside of the courtroom. They also have family issues, so there is a bit of drama there, especially with Quaid's brother. There is a courtroom case that will have you laughing out loud; the people of Papillon are fascinating.
Lexi Blake has gifted readers with a childhood crush that comes to fruition and a small-town romance with lots of steam and heart. BAYOU BELOVED is the sixth book in the BUTTERFLY BAYOU SERIES, but each of the books can be read as a standalone
I recommend this to those who enjoy Steamy Contemporary Romances, Small Town Romances, or Opposite Side of Tracks Romance.
