RUE TOULOUSE

RUE TOULOUSE                                     DEBBY GRAHL

It’s Mardi Gras time in New Orleans. Attending a masquerade ball, wealthy fashion designer Caterine Doucette, dressed as a shimmering ice princess, has her cool façade shattered when she encounters Bayou-born ex-cop Remi Michaud, disguised as the darkly handsome pirate Jean Lafitte. Their true identities hidden, the princess and the pirate come together in an explosion of passion and desire. But when fantasy turns to cold reality, Caterine panics and disappears into the night, unaware this man will soon be sent to rescue her from a killer and will capture her heart.

Orphaned at a young age, Caterine grew up in the home of her beloved grandmother, Miss Dauphine Doucette. Despised by her Doucette relatives for the devotion she received from her grandmère, Caterine suffered years of envy and disdain. The young Caterine learned quickly how easily the love she had to give could be thrown back in her face.

After Miss Dauphine turns over ownership of the century-old fashion house, Ma Chérie, to Caterine, an attempt is made on her life, for there are those in the Doucette family who will stop at nothing to possess what they feel is their rightful inheritance.

Not knowing whom to trust, Caterine goes into hiding. Miss Dauphine, convinced someone in her own family is behind the attack, hires Remi, now working for a private security company, to track her down and unmask her would-be assassin.

Learning that the affluent Caterine Doucette is the beautiful princess he held in his arms at the ball, Remi is torn between his growing desire for her and painful memories of another rich socialite’s betrayal. Caterine finds herself falling in love with Remi, but old embedded pain leaves her afraid to open her heart.

Down in the Big Easy, Caterine and Remi must learn to trust one another if they are to survive in a world of family greed and ruthless revenge.
 

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
Caterine Doucette is attending a masquerade ball during the Mardi gras TIME IN New Orleans. There she meets a pirate who really is Remi Michaud a former police officer and now runs his owns security firm with his former partner. Catrine is a fashion designer and study in Paris, which was paid for by her grandmother who raised her after her parents died in a car accident when she was a child. The grandmother noticed she had a talent for cloths design when she would make clothe for her dolls out of newspapers. Her grandmother owns a top of the line fashion house that has been in the family for a century. Her family will do anything to stop her from inheriting the store, and her fling with the pirate actually comes to her rescue from her family. A story of mystery, kidnapping, extortion, attempted murder, and sex. So much New Orleans that it makes for a great read. I got this book from netgalley.  I give this 4 stars.  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
