Emilie Gallant and her Cajun family have traveled to Louisiana in search of their father, separated thirteen years ago during le grand dérangement, the brutal exile by the British from their Nova Scotia homeland. The last thing Emilie has on her mind as she enters the rugged bayou country is marriage to her longtime companion, Lorenz Dugas. Beautiful but stubbornly defiant, Emilie worshipped Lorenz as a child but having to fight to preserve her family has built a wall around her heart. But Lorenz is equally determined and his passion will prove that their love cannot be denied. As they make their way across the untamed Louisiana wilderness, hoping to reunite the Gallant family, Emilie learns that love has a way of healing all wounds — even in the most unusual places. 

“Pick up a copy of Emilie for your reading pleasure, and take a journey into the historical Acadian (Cajun) country of Louisiana for an educational, romantic read.” —Carol Carter, Romance Reviews Today 

“The beauty of Ms. Claire’s tale is in the message that love makes one a stronger and better person. She leaves just enough hints to keep readers eagerly anticipating the next two sisters’ tales. As a history buff, I enjoyed learning about the Acadian (Cajun) culture, as well as the story’s characters.” —Evelyn Feiner, Romantic Times magazine

Her latest is the Viola Valentine paranormal mystery series, featuring New Orleans travel writer and ghost sleuth Viola Valentine. The books are: "A Ghost of a Chance" "Ghost Town" "Trace of a Ghost" "Ghost Trippin'" Originally published with Kensington, the “Cajun Series” of historical romance follows a family of Acadians (Cajuns) who travel to South Louisiana and start anew after being exiled from their Nova Scotia home. The first three books (“Emilie,” “Rose,” “Gabrielle,”) follow the Gallant sisters as they attempt to reunite with their father (and find love) in the wilds of Louisiana and “Delphine” (Book Four) takes place during Louisiana's role in the American Revolution.

They become lifelong friends. Because love — and a good gumbo — changes everything. Cherie lives in South Louisiana where she works as a travel and food writer when not indulging in Cajun culture.

There's so much stupid page filler conversation and the male lead is constantly nibbling on her ear or lips that I had to skim this book. Only to find that it's a cliffhanger! Ugh!

Gave up on it. Besides, the one review I read says it leaves you hanging. I hate when a book doesn't have a real ending.

This was a great book very funny. Only bad thing is that it leaves you hanging.

There was an opportunity to incorporate a lot of Acadian/Creole history that could have made this story come alive. Grammatical and spelling errors added to the challenge of finishing this book

Could have left out the sex scenes. Very disappointing.

I enjoyed the historical period. I did tire of Emilie's character flip flopping back and forth, and editing missed several obvious bloopers.
