Cajun Cowboy
By Sandra Hill

     I have read several Sandra Hill books, and this one did not disappoint me at all. Sandra Hill has the most delightful sense of humor!

     Cajun Cowboy is set on the bayou in Louisiana, and her “cowboy,” Raoul Lanier, has just been released from prison. He is hell-bent on proving that he was framed, and his one desire in life is to get his veterinarian license back again. That—and to capture the heart of his ex-wife, Charmaine LeDeux—who has just declared herself “a born-again virgin.”
Charmaine is the owner of a chain of beauty salons. But, she is in hock up to her painted face to loan sharks. When Raoul sashays back into her life, he is the last thing she wants. Or is it?

     They are both shocked when they discover that Raoul’s father, who has recently died, has left his ranch to Raoul—and Charmaine—50% to each of them. The lawyer, when he delivers the deed to the property, also brings the divorce papers, which were never signed or filed.

     Charmaine takes it all seriously and she heads for the ranch. Soon, amidst good food and the cute little body Charmaine flaunts in front of the ranch hands, they are all in cahoots to figure out how to keep her there, and to get Raoul to “ride her till she’s bull-legged.”
The secondary character, Charmaine’s aunt, Tante Lulu, add a delicious touch to the story.

     If you want a good laugh, with just a hint of a mystery thrown in for good measure, and some of the most innovative ways to keep romance alive in a marriage, this is the best place around to find all of the above.
Very highly recommended.
