Under the canopy of oaks on St. Charles Avenue, Celine St. Pierre, the city’s resident saint, is murdered. Claressa Dupré, Assistant District Attorney, is determined to uncover the murderer of the Garden District’s heroine, and all evidence points to West Morgan IV.
When wealthy oil baron Morgan arrives in New Orleans, he comes for one reason alone. No matter what it takes, he vows to return to Texas with what Celine St. Pierre stole from him and his family. And no one will stop him.
With all of the evidence pointing to Morgan, Claressa vows to convict him of Celine’s murder, despite her sizzling attraction to him.
What she finds in her investigation raises her past and promises to destroy her case against Morgan and, perhaps, everyone she loves.
