When her adoptive father suffers a life-threatening heart attack, Schyler Crandall returns to her hometown of Heaven, Louisiana, after a six-year absence. It isn't just the heat that's sizzling in Heaven. Schyler's sister hates her enough to do her harm; her father's logging empire is about to go under; her beloved home, Belle Terre, may be lost; and Cash Boudreaux threatens Schyler's heart with a sensual pull that's impossible to resist. Unfortunately for Schyler, Cash is a dangerous, complex man with a dark past and a wild reputation that he won't deny. Schyler needs Cash's expertise to save her father's business, but can she let the handsome Cajun into her life without losing her heart?
Slow Heat in Heaven is a rip-roaring tale that grabs the reader's attention on page 1 and doesn't let go until the book's end. Complex and vivid characters, family intrigue, and old scandals all make for the perfect romantic suspense read. --Lois Faye Dyer

My major gripe is with the male lead, Cash. Yes, he was incredibly masculine and sexy, but this was added to the sensitivity of a sledgehammer and the personality of a doorpost (i.e not a good combination). Here's a list of just some of the many reasons why I could not stand him, he was - abusive towards the heroine, a compulsive womaniser, accuses the heroine of committing incest, gambles on rotweiller fights where dogs savage each other until one dies, ... In the end I lost all respect for Schyler, the so-called heroine, because she never stood up for herself and put Cash in his place.
Overall Slow Heat In Heaven is a repulsive parody of true romance. It is a shallow, vulgar travesty populated with petty characters and ugly happenings. Not recommended.
I think a lot of people make an opinion of the characters in the beginning of the book and no actions afterwards can change it....
Cash is called "revolting" and is accused of not saying one "nice thing" to Schyler. To me he is not revolting at all, but rather a very realistically developed character in the light of his past.....and he DOES say several "nice things" to the heroine throughout the book, like e.g. that she is "beautiful" and he means it then......
As far Schyler goes, readers accuse her of being too mousy to ever stand for herself. That I find absolutely UNTRUE...she does fight her relatives in regards to selling the house, she does shoot the dogs, she does take it on herself to save the business, she does save Gayla and she DOES FIRE Cash when she has doubts as to his motives.........so I say she has a lot of BRASS.....
In conclusion, neither of them is much different from the usually well developed and complicated characters of Sandra Brown, so I recommend the book strongly.
I think the heroin, Schyler, is strong in a quiet gentlewoman way. She does what is right and necessary for her and others. I think she is commendable. The hero is indeed fallible. He is angry, at times hateful and he severely uses women (most, though, use him right back). But as the story moves on there is a hint of his imminent change. I think despite his character flaws this process shows he is truly falling in love.(....)
The only problem I have with the book is a few despicable characters, especially Jigger Flynn and the inmates. I could almost not stomach reading some of their heinous deeds.
All in all, Slow Heat in Heaven was an outstanding read. I've read eight of Sandra Browns novel (romance and fiction) and I keep going back to this one; of her works it is my favorite. I highly recommend it to romance readers and general fiction fans.
Cash: "Did you two make a date?"
Schyler: "Do you care?"
Cash: "Damn right." 'His arm shot across the seat and his hand plunged between her thighs. He squeezed her possessively.' "This is mine until I get through with it, understand?"
Schyler: "Keep your hands off me. And while you're at it, go to hell."
I mean, in real life, I'd probably tell him the same thing Schyler did and mean it, too. However, because we know that his feelings for Schyler are not merely sexual, such crude talk is all the more exciting.
If you love Southern settings (I do) and ultra-sexy, definitely non politically correct heroes, you'll love this novel.
