About JUST THE TROUBLE I NEEDED:
Sometimes a little trouble—and a lot of Louisiana heat—can help you find your way…
Kate McDonnell has a problem: a problem with four legs and a howl loud enough to wake the whole Bayou. She can’t remember why she agreed to dogsit her best friend’s Catahoula, until sexy Sheriff Andre Dufresne stops by and her memories come right back. But Kate can’t get seriously involved with anyone right now—she just got cheated on by her scoundrel fiancé, and besides, Bayou Sabine is just her temporary refuge. But one lighted-hearted fling couldn’t hurt, right?
When Andre Dufresne first met Kate, she was naked as a jaybird and tried to brain him with her hairdryer. But that was months ago. Now, all he wants is to get to know her better. After all, they don’t make girls like her where he comes from—whip-smart, fast-talking, straight-shooting, and foxy as all get out. He has his work cut out for him though—Kate is no country girl. She might like him all right, but she can’t stop talking about going home.
Kate can’t resist a short-lived affair with Andre, and Andre isn’t about to tell Kate no. Can he convince her that he’s worth the trouble? Or will her fear of being hurt again ruin any chance they have of love?
