Yet my hugest thanks goes to all my readers! Without you, it wouldn't be so much fun telling my tales. Plus, a heartfelt hug, to everyone who took the time to leave a review for any of my stories. I love knowing what you thought.
So in celebration of my newest release, here's a brand new excerpt for you!
“Casi, you awake?” Her eyes widened when she registered him in bed with Casi. “Oh, hey there.” Grinning, she pushed the door wide open and stepped all the way into the room. Of course she did. Privacy between siblings didn’t exist.
He sat up straighter and dropped his arms from around Casi as she, too, sat up and scooted away from him to the center of the bed. Still sitting so close, he easily read her discomfort.
Jolie’s grin morphed into a smirk. “I was concerned. It’s almost noon. Besides, I come bearing gifts. Momma mentioned the dire need of clothes for Casi.” She held up the bundle of garments as she walked to the bed. Placing them down on the corner, Jolie focused on Casi. “Hi. I’m Jolie.”
“Um, hi?” Casi cleared her throat. “The tea shop owner, right?”
Jolie quirked an eyebrow as she switched her gaze back to him. “I see my brother has been sharing.”
“Jolly,” he growled. “Knock it off.”
Cassanne Thomas returns to New Orleans to start her life over and becomes the target of a supernatural serial killer. Escaping her close call with death, Casi is the only witness to the crime and finds herself placed in protected custody by a handsome Cajun detective. But with her dark, troubled past, trusting the police is the last thing she wants to do.
Detective Lucas Avery, the top homicide detective in NOLA, is unaware of the supernatural world surrounding him. With the killer stalking the streets, he vows to shield the beautiful, enigmatic, Casi with his life while fighting his growing attraction to her. He's been burned before.
Danger chases Lucas and Casi from the streets of the French Quarter to the wilds of the bayou. Will they be able to stop a monster, straight out of a nightmare or become victims themselves?
