Eli Boudreaux’s family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hardworking, wealthy family and his empire is growing by leaps and bounds. At thirty, he is the youngest CEO to ever head Bayou Enterprises, co-chairing with his eldest brother. His head for business and his no-nonsense work ethic is also quickly making him the best the company has seen in generations. His staff admires him, women adore him and Eli’s family is solid. But he’s recently discovered that someone on the inside of his business is stealing from him and he’s determined to find out who.
Kate O’Shaughnessy is hired by companies all over the world to slip inside and investigate every member of the organization from the CEO down to the custodial staff to find the person or persons responsible for embezzling. She’s excellent at blending, becoming part of the team, and finding the weakest link. She’s smart, quick-witted, and she’s now been hired by Bayou Enterprises, specifically Eli Boudreaux. The attraction is immediate and the chemistry is off the charts, but Kate has heard all about Eli’s playboy past and she has a job to do. Sleeping with the boss isn’t a part of that job, even if just the sound of her name rolling off that Cajun tongue and the way he fills out a designer suit does make her sweat.
Eli’s southern charms surprise Kate. The man whose reputation labels him as a ruthless, callous womanizer is not the man she’s coming to know intimately. He’s generous, protective and makes her smile. Cracking through Kate’s cool, reserved demeanor and discovering her love of sexy, expensive lingerie is a challenge Eli can’t resist, but her sweet nature, love of family and sense of humor pull at him in ways no one else ever has.
But when the person responsible for trying to single-handedly dismantle Eli’s empire comes to light, and it’s time for Kate to move on, to what lengths will Eli go to keep the woman he’s fallen in love with by his side?
I’m so excited to have had the chance to sit down and interview Eli Boudreaux, the new leading man in Kristen’s latest release, Easy Love! Easy Love released this past Tuesday, and it’s a definite must read! Read below for my interview and be sure to enter the giveaway!
Welcome, Eli! I’m thrilled you’re joining me, thank you for taking time out of your day to sit with me; I know you’re a busy man. Can I get you something to drink? Thank you for having me, dawlin’. I’ll pass on the drink for now.
-So, Eli, *looks around and behind him* I noticed you came in empty handed and I KNOW your mother raised you right; can I assume my beignets will be delivered later :-)? It would be my pleasure to have beignets or anything else you may need delivered to you.
-Eli, your series takes place in New Orleans, since you’re born and raised there, what’s your favorite place? Besides Cafe du Monde, what’s a must see place for a tourist? My favorite place is the family inn on the bayou. My sister, Gabby, runs the inn. It’s been in our family for many generations. It’s peaceful there. As for tourist attractions, I recommend that everyone spends at least a few days exploring the French Quarter.
-I’m dying to know- what were your first thoughts when Kate walked into your office? *grins* I don’t believe it’s appropriate for me to tell you what those thoughts were. I will say this: Kate is extraordinary, inside and out. There is no one else like her, and I knew that as soon as I saw her.
-Any anxiety being the Boudreaux brother to kick off the series? No. Starting with the best is always wise. *winks*
(no arguments from this girl!)
-Last question, Eli, and I’ll let you get back to the office…any juicy dirt you can give us on your brothers lol? Our family is a diverse one, whether it be brothers or sisters. We stick together, and we fight like cats and dogs. Family is very important to us.
*shrugs* I guess we’re just going to have to read their respective stories, again, no complaints here!
