"A sexy pilot, an almost-nun, and Tante Lulu -- what could possibly go wrong?"
Reviewed by Helen Williams

CAJUN PERSUASION is book number three in The
Cajun series about a sexy pilot, an almost-nun and a
pint-sized woman with multiple colored hair (depending on
the occasion), driving a purple Cadillac. What could go
wrong? Sandra Hill has a flair for entertaining you with
her Cajun Books. This is a hilarious series about the family
matriarch of the LeDeaux clan who feels it's her duty to
pass out St. Jude statues and hope chests to her family
members. She drives them all crazy but they love her dearly.
Even though the story is filled with humor there is a very
real and serious side dealing with sex trafficking of young
girls -- mostly aged 16 and under.
Alaskan pilot Aaron LeDeux and his twin brother came to
Louisiana after the death of their mother. Moving to
Louisiana Aaron and his brother discover just how deep their
Cajun roots are. Then they meet Tante Lulu who immediately
gives them St. Jude statues and tells them she has hope
chests for them. Aaron's brother and his family have no idea
what he's doing when he disappears days and weeks at a time.
Aaron has been floundering trying to find his purpose when
he finds himself helping a crew of street monks and nuns
rescue sex-trafficked young girls. During these rescue
missions he meets a gorgeous almost-nun that steals his heart.
Fleur Gaudet has a personal and painful past tied to these
missions. Because of that past she feels safest at the
nunnery and thinks she will be taking her vows. She has been
ordered to go out into the real world so she can decide
where she belongs. Imagine Louise Rivard (Tante Lulu) being
friends with the Mother Superior who sends Fleur to live
with her. A very eye-opening experience for a woman who has
lived at a nunnery for the past 10 years. Because of her
past Fleur thought her feelings toward men were non-existent
until she sees Aaron.
If this is your first time reading a Sandra Hill novel, then
I encourage you to try some others, especially the other
Cajun novels that introduce you to the rest of the LeDeux clan.
Return to New York Times Bestseller Sandra Hill's Cajun
country, where the Louisiana bayou is steamier than
ever . . .
Alaskan pilot Aaron LeDeux came to Louisiana with his
brother to discover his Cajun roots. But any hopes he had of
returning home are extinguished when he agrees to help a
crew of street monks and nuns rescue sex-trafficked girls.
For the work has become his new calling. Plus, he's in love

With her harrowing past, Fleur Gaudet only feels safe at the
nunnery. But when she's ordered out into the real world to
decide where she truly belongs, Fleur goes to live with the
notorious Tante Lulu, matriarch of the LeDeux clan.
Suddenly, she's leading a regular life, thinking
irregular thoughts about Aaron. With his
whiskey-colored eyes and fierce bravery, Aaron is like her
own personal Cajun cowboy, re-introducing her to . . .
As the dangerous missions bring them closer, Fleur must
decide if her heart is truly on the path she's been
following, or if she'll have a new future with the man of
