A Woman with Questions. A Man with Secrets. A Bayou without Mercy
A gripping southern tale of rekindled love, heartbreaking betrayal, and the power of secrets to both destroy and bind a family together.
After fleeing to Chicago five years earlier, Elita Dupree returns to her ancestral home on Louisiana’s mysterious Caddo Lake. Now twenty-two, she seeks answers to questions about her father’s death, questions that cast shadows over her childhood memories of him.
On her first trip into the bayous of Caddo Lake, Elita encounters Jax Boudreaux, a shotgun toting loner who warns her to stay out of the Caddo. When Royce Sutton finds her and offers to take her home, Elita is overjoyed, but soon learns that the teenager to whom she’d given her heart is now a bitter young man, scarred by war, and filled with secrets. But no matter how much they’ve changed, they can’t resist their smoldering passions.
As she navigates their turbulent relationship, Elita discovers some of the secrets Royce is keeping involve her family. Trust in the people she loves most erodes with each new unanswered question. The truth lies in the bayous of Caddo Lake, and Elita won’t rest until she finds it. But while she is hunting answers, someone…or something…is hunting her.

The Marquess of Alastair is trying to be a gentleman for a change, but this Regency miss won’t take ‘no’ for an answer!
Mildred Abbott is a proper Regency miss, but she cannot deny the dark desires that torment her body in the quiet of night. Engaged to an uninspiring sycophant, she asks the influential nephew of her patroness in debauchery to interfere and break her engagement. When her appeals to him fail, she decides to take a singular opportunity—a visit to the Château Debauchery—to indulge her most wanton cravings before she submits herself to a life of wedded dullness.
The Marquess of Alastair concerns himself with no one, but to appease his aunt on her birthday, he agrees to select one person whose interests he will look after. It was not his intention to choose the plain and simple Miss Abbott, but when she unexpectedly shows up at the Château Debauchery, his hand is forced. Knowing his aunt to be partial to the miss, he grudgingly decides to act the part of a gentleman and preserve Miss Abbott’s honor by removing her from the Château.
But Mildred refuses to go until she has had her night of wicked debauchery.
