A Hero for Jessica
by Pamela S. Thibodeaux
Anthony Paul Seville is known as the 'most eligible bachelor' in New Orleans, possibly even the entire state of Louisiana, but finds himself alone—completely and explicitly alone. Jessica Aucoin is a writer on her way to fame and fortune, but is haunted by a man from her past. Will the "champion" lawyer and the author of romantic suspense find love written in their cards?
When Attorney Paul Seville agrees to teach a Friday night seminar rather than take advantage of the night, he has no idea it would lead to finding the love of his life. Novelist Jessica Aucoin has a problem, and she needs the help of an aggressive lawyer. Paul Seville seems the perfect man to ride in on his white horse and save her. But will he be able to see past the mistakes from her past which continue to haunt her and truly be the hero she so desires?
I enjoyed this short story, and especially the scintillating descriptions author, Pamela Thibodeaux employed in it. There is an air of sensuality thoughtout the story, an attraction so strong between the two main characters that it left me almost breathless. But this is a sweet romance, no sexual scenes, and frankly, it didn’t need them. The romantic tension was kept high, but done in a respectful way that truly impressed me. Some scenes seemed a little telling, at times, but over all it was well done.
It contained a good climax that built suddenly, and a satisfying conclusion to both the suspenseful part of the story as well as the romance. A good, sweet read charged with attraction but an emphasis on true love. I recommend it to women of all ages.
