Overview

He was looking for a killer. What he found was a woman who turned his lonely world upside down-and touched him as no other woman had ever done.

Auri 'Creole' Levalois is a man on a mission. Determined to put his foster-brother's killer behind bars, he has taken a leave of absence from New Orleans PD to hunt the man down. Following his last, desperate lead, Creole sets up a surveillance on the girlfriend of one of the bad guy's minions. Muse Summerville's thin file says the sultry blonde is hot as the Louisiana summer, and has a penchant for men-the more dangerous the better. But to Creole's cop instincts, something about her doesn't quite add up.

Grace Summerville's identical twin sister has vanished without a trace. Grace has left her cozy Charleston home and high school counselor job, and rushed to New Orleans' notorious French Quarter, where she has installed herself in Muse's apartment. This disappearing act is typical for Muse, who is far too much like their good-for-nothing, drifter father for Grace's comfort. But this time Grace is really worried. Especially when she discovers a dark, mysterious Cajun man watching her from the neighboring balcony-watching her with the feral interest of a predator. Is he somehow involved in Muse's disappearance? Or is he after something much more dangerous to a good girl like Grace...?

Editorial Reviews

Cheryl Haubner
“Ms. Bruhns has written a very powerful love story. Not only does the intrigue keep you turning the pages, but also the reader really roots for Grace and Creole… The sexual relationship between these two really sizzles, but it’s the all-consuming love they discover that leaves you with a wonderful feeling. Nina Bruhns is a talent to watch. In my opinion, she’s right up there with Beverly Barton and Linda Howard.”

“Ms. Bruhns has created a very hot story with an intricate plot. Creole is a tortured hero… [but] Despite his dark cloud, he is…the stuff of fantasies. Grace is a strong heroine… with enough emotional baggage to keep her interesting.”

“SWEET REVENGE is so hot you’ll need something to cool you off… The sexual energy between Creole and Grace explodes at their first meeting and doesn’t let up, which heightens the tension created by the suspense aspect of the story. The author’s … top notch characterization and ability to wring the reader’s emotions … makes it an outstanding keeper.”

## It was all right. Not the worst but certainly not the best. I enjoyed the plot (twin fills in for her completely opposite twin). The heroine was great. Cute, strong and caring, she wants to find her sister who has disapeared. Falls for the bad boy cop who's watching her every move. Two things I didn't like: The hero was a smoker and that just is not sexy in any way. Constantly lighting up and then kissing the heroine. Ugh.Also, I really hated the way the hero spoke. Leaving off the g's and t's off all his words. Maybe that's how they speak in New Orleans, however, I found it very unattractive and distracting. 2 1/2 stars is the best I can do.
