In one reckless night, Camille Jameson’s life was changed forever: a tall, handsome stranger, an evening of romance – and enough regrets to last a lifetime. Two years later, Camille is a successful interior decorator with the opportunity to restore one of Mississippi’s proudest plantations. She arrives excited and eager to face her greatest professional challenge to date – until Zack Prescott saunters through the mansion’s front door and back into her life. He is exactly as she remembers, except for the knowing look in his eyes that reminds her of what they once shared. Now, forced to live in unbearably close quarters, Camille and Zack will discover if they have the courage to face the past – and, perhaps, build a future together.

I am a sucker for a good book. I would take it over food any day. I will read anything that is put in front of me.
Georgia native Camille gets the dream job redecorating an antebellum house in Natchez Mississippi. Little does she know that Zachary Prescott, the only man she has ever really been with, is heir to this illustrious home.
They butt heads from page 1 all the way till a literal brick knocks poor Camille over the head. Thankfully knocking sense into her.
What I love about this book:
If you have not experienced firsthand "southern hospitality", you'll fall in love with Rayburn Prescott's( Zachary's father). He is portrayed as a southern gentlemen who expects nothing less from his cantankerous son.
Tight jeans, boots and a hat- that is the uniform of out hero( although he doesn't do much saving.)
The book is pretty old( in years since published not in setting) and my 2nd time reading it but there is something timeless about two people falling in love. I love the butting heads and the quippy comebacks that only Sandra Brown can write.
Get used to the setting giving a kick of its own (falsh floods, mudslides and snakes).
What might throw you off:
This is a classic romance story where the hero is strong and the protagonist is fragile(ish). Sandra throws this on its head when Camille risks her life for Zachary because she thinks he's in love with someone else. Well, at times, it was a bit unbearable how clueless Camille really was. She withheld all her thoughts from Zachary and that delusion steamrolled this wild fantasy that even after he kissed her, sought her out and whispered her name in an endearing way, she still didn't get it. Urghh... Did I tell you Camille is like 24? (I don't remember much at 24 and maybe this is why Camille is clueless too.)
But with Sandra's easy style of writing, you can get frustrated at this main character because she is portrayed so beautifully.
If you have never experience Sandra Brown as a romance writer, it is a little different but well worth the read into Love's Encore.
