Overview

New Orleans Police Detective Sam Garrett can't believe his bad luck when he's assigned to investigate a string of gay-bashings turned deadly in the French Quarter. Especially when he realizes Travis Boudreaux, his new, hot, and most-likely-straight partner, plans to use him as bait. The worst part? They’ve got no back-up because the rest of the city is preoccupied by another series of killings — the victims drained of blood.

Meet the Author

Raised in California, Laura likes it hot, which explains why she ended up in Arizona via such diverse places as Japan, Maine, and Florida, and many more places in between. After retiring from the US Navy, she found a niche working for land management agencies, including the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Though she has held many jobs around the world, her favorite was working and living in Grand Canyon National Park. Working (and eating) in New Orleans was a close second. You will find many of her books are set against the rich backdrops provided by coastal Louisiana and northern Arizona.

When asked how she started writing, Laura tells of waking on Boxing Day a few years ago, with a woman named Elena MacFarland yammering in her dreams, demanding her story be told. Despite never attempting to write fiction before that morning, Laura ignored all of the holiday visitors and the Highland Destiny series was born. She doesn’t believe it was a coincidence that the great grandmother who died when Laura was just a baby was named Elena MacFarland. Destiny does play a hand.

Laura became a full-time writer in 2012, and now she spends her time writing, watching her Arizona Diamondbacks, and working on her very own version of the Willow Springs Ranch in northwestern Arizona. She is a multi-published author of erotic romance, mystery, and urban fantasy and her books can be found at all major online retailers.

Like...wow...just wow! AS is a great start to a new series that I'm looking forward to reading. Sam Garret is a gay detective in New Orleans, looking for perps in what he thinks are gay-killing bashers. His new partner, Travis Boudreaux, is a hunky dude who takes no sh*t from anyone and he's mostly a loner. They work really well together. Exceptionally well. The story is so damn well written, it's great. Terrific prose, top-notch characterization, vivid in every aspect, just....excellent all the way around. Includes a paranormal streak too.

Pretty good story, really unexpected (but not bad!) ending. A lot of editorial errors.

Not my cup of tea, but with that said.....the ending did not make any sense to me, altered state or not.

This book is amazing and in the end you cry alittle, but it makes the book all the better. Its sweet and you'll never guess the ending. You may get ideas but you wont guess it. Now I say this whole heartedly because I always guess the endings of every book I read. You ALL must read this terrific book.
