Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Mystery, more than romance, defines Cameron's (The Best Revenge) appealing if conventional first outing into hardback romantic suspense. Peopled by standard types--growling mob boss, simpering drag queen, pushy newspaper gossipmonger, unscrupulous evangelists, conscienceless politicos--in a cartoon New Orleans, the novel nonetheless succeeds in weaving a taut web of murder and sexual liaisons (the latter sometimes played out in dog-ear-worthy pages of steamy lust). Jack Charbonnet, part owner of a riverboat casino, is thrown together with a former Miss Louisiana, Celina Payne, when her boss, Errol Petrie, is murdered. Jack's wife died four years ago in murky circumstances; Celina is pregnant after a rape by a man whose identity she conceals. Their decision to marry, for respectability's sake, long precedes the predictable resolution of their mistrustful relationship and the more interesting exploration of the connections among Celina's parents, Errol's spiritual guides and Senate-hopeful Wilson Lamar. Cameron's exploration of family--from mob loyalty to parental betrayal--lends a certain thoughtfulness to the work. (Sept.)
Kirkus Reviews
Beignets and a hero who calls his lover ch‚re: the inevitable signs of contemporary formula-romance in New Orleans. In the 1930s and '40s, even unlikely movie stars were forced to sing and danceþthe heyday of the Hollywood musical demanded it. In the same way, today, perfectly good romance writers like Cameron, now with her first hardcover, churn out suspense thriller-mysteries, but without suspense, without mystery, and without many thrills, at least not before bedtime. Here, Celina Payne, a former Miss Louisiana, discovers the corpse of her boss and best friend Errol Petrie lying on the floor of his bathroom, dressed only in a green rubber penis ring. (In Cameron's signature sensuous romances, sexual descriptions are anatomically correct; there are no "male members" or "buds of femininity.") Celina, a daughter of New Orleans society, teams up with Errol's roguish Cajun partner Jack Charbonnet, co-owner of a riverboat casino, to carry on the work of Errol's nonprofit organization, Dreams, a charity that attempts to grant the wishes of dying children. A villainous politician is trying to destroy Dreams by spreading the rumor that Errol was an alcoholic sex addict. Inevitably, Jack and Celina come to admire each other's perfect bodies, and devilish Jack is revealed not only as a devoted father to five-year-old Amelia, but also as an all-round gallant fellow. He tells bedtime stories to Amelia every night, he walks her to school every morning, and he proposes to Celina when he learns sheþs pregnant (the result of a rape by the villainous politician). Jack's father, a Mafia wiseguy, was nailed to a fence and castrated, then forced to watch his wife be raped and murdered.After these same Mafia thugs, now older, terrorize Celinaþin a plot device that never makes senseþall the other bad guys are perfunctorily announced. Jack and Celina, of course, live happily ever after. A very watery gumbo.

    Jessica

    A girl who is small for her age, 16, has blonde hair with bright red highlights that goes down to about her waist. She is still a virgin too. She curves in all the right places. Her name is Jessica. Right at this moment she wears a small bikini which does not hide much of anything... Jessica sits off to the side of the other girls obviously standing out...

    Outstanding with all the right elements

    A real southern scorcher with a cast of colorful characters. It would make a great movie.
