Never Say Goodbye
With the Civil War looming on the distant horizon, Jules Gallant and best friend Armand Beauchamp choose to ignore the threatening clouds of insurrection that surround them and embark instead on a desperate journey into the very heart of Louisiana's dangerous swamps in search of a missing twin. At stake are the vast lands and holdings left to Jules by his deceased grandfather. The journey is hampered from the get go by the scrappy young street girl, Josette, who insists on tagging along in search of her own private quest--that of finding a love potion that will make Jules fall madly in love with her--and one that leads her deep into the swampy bayous of Louisiana in search of the mysterious voodoo priestess who can answer her prayers. Instead of a love potion, Mama Juju gives Josette an amulet--one, she warns, Josette must never take off--which will cause the first man she looks upon to fall in love with her. Feverishly clutching the amulet she wears around her neck, Josette rushes back in the dead of night to the lodgings she shares with the two young men. Quickly slipping into the bed with Jules she proceeds to rouse him from his slumber only to find Armand's handsome face staring back at her...A masterful writer of both adventure and romance, Eden West offers her readers a gripping page turner that succeeds in capturing the intensity of the civil war, the wildness of the Louisiana swamps, and the lengths one will go for love.
