Overview



Kristen Wakefield grew up the privileged, beloved daughter and sister of a wealthy family...yet she felt eclipsed by the achievements of her older brother, Adam, a renowned neurosurgeon. In New Orleans, Kristen believes she now has the opportunity to prove herself and forget a rather disastrous past relationship. But life is much harder than she expected in the Big Easy. Then she meets a man from her past, Rafe Crawford...a man battling his own demons and keeping his own secrets.

The beautiful, but down-to-earth Angelique Fleming has always had to fight to get what she wanted in a world dominated by men and she has the chip on her shoulder to prove it. Which is why she takes great pleasure working at a local strip club, hoping to expose a few naughty little secrets of the community’s upstanding men. But before she gets all the dirt, she’s going to find out a few things about life, men, and forgiveness she thought she already knew.

Claudette Thibodeaux Laurent comes from old New Orleans money and had always adhered to the family code: honor above all else. But she shocks polite society when she marries a man much younger than herself, a man everyone suspects is only after her money. Claudette has done her duty to her family and now she wants a little happiness for herself. And yet doubts eventually begin to creep in and she isn’t sure which Maurice loves more: her or her money, as his desire for the finer things in life become more and more lavish. Just exactly how much is her happiness is going to cost her?

Told with Francis Ray’s trademark emotion and passion, Somebody’s Knocking at My Door is a powerful story of betrayal and forgiveness, love and healing.

    Great Book!

    This book was absolutely amazing. I had read Turning Point and was really happy that Ms. Francis stayed true to the characters of Rafe and Kristen. I love how all of the characters are entertwined and so well developed that a reader can't help but empathize with them. This book was really wonderful and another of Ms. Francis great reads.

    Farncis Ray does it again!!!

    Francis is the bomb!!!! She continously writes good books and has great character development. In this book Rafe doesn't magically overnight change, it takes time and a gentle loving nudge from Kristen who is so adorable and giving. A well enjoyed read....Francis is the greatest!!!!! ~~~~Her #1 FAN!!

    Beautiful Story!

    A beautiful and well written story. The emotional and touching plot gave the reader a lot to think about. I will remember the emotional scars left by cruelty, selfishness, and lack of compassion. Thank God for love! LA-TXN
