A thriller and a romance combined, in a very good way. When Laura returns to the Louisiana swamps in search of a mother who abandoned her years ago, she also returns to childhood memories long forgotten. Was it just a coincidence that Drew, her old friend who'd once saved her life, returned to the swamps on the same day?

The mystery portion of this book, the search for answers that Laura can't quite find, is a non-stop thrill. The romance is super steamy. It did lose a star because it gets a bit
Really good book with lots of twists and turns. Very enjoyable story. And different from my experiences with Harlequin novels.
A mysterious phone call drew Laura (love the name!)Larame(hate the name-sounds like Laramie and I kept thinking cowboys whenever I read it!)back to her roots in Lionsheart, Lousianna deep in the bayou where "Voudoo" holds sway. She'd left there as a girl when her best friend, Drew, rescued her from drowning in the swamp and something darker.

The paranormal aspect in this one was more subdued than most Nocturnes, but it works. This one felt a lot more suspenseful to me as well. I needed to keep reading because I needed answers. This was a good, creepy read. I look forward to more from Cynthia Cooke.
Amy Lynn
Possibly the worst book i have ever read. I would give it 4 stars for unintended comedy value just because it was so badly written.
Barb Herring
