In DC, Feng Shui decorator Rachel Fortier ends her relationship with her former fiancé David Lloyd because he went and had a vasectomy without telling her what he did. To make it final, she burns all the physical fitness equipment he has given her as gifts over the years in his quest for the perfect female specimen, a goal that Rachel no longer strives to achieve. Rachel also has taken a three-month leave of absence to travel to Terrebonne Parrish, Louisiana to meet her fraternal grandmother Gizelle for the first time.

Upon arriving at Granny's estate, two things catch her eye. First the place looks like a nineteenth century hillbilly disaster area. The second is more a showstopper as she sees helicopter pilot Remy LeDeux for the first time. Neither can take their eyes off one another as if Cupid struck both down. However, he cannot believe she could love someone with the burn scar on his visage and their respective relatives play un-matchmaking roles trying to insure that the End Days have not begun with the forbidden marriage between a Fortier and a LeDeux.

The first moment that the lead couple see one another is simply “Oh my” as readers will sense and believe in the deep feelings of love at first sight. Though Remy's denial of her loving behavior becomes boorish after a while, Rachel is a delightful female protagonist and the support cast provides regional charm. Readers will enjoy this DC cosmopolitan and Bayou pilot falling in love contemporary romance.
