Overview

Dixie Chauvin's new house in The French Quarter was once the first brothel built in New Orleans outside of the Red Light District. She is tickled with her new acquisition that is until, she discovers that some of the past residents are still staking a claim to the prop-erty.

Blake is her guardian angel, but he's let his feelings for her go far beyond his duty to protect her. He wrestles with his loyalty to his job and the rules he must follow and his need to reveal himself to the girl he loves.

Soon, they are caught in a battle to save the soul of a girl who's been held captive in the house for over a hundred years. Dixie is so set on freeing the ghost that she travels back in time in hopes of finding out how the beauty met her end.

Can Blake and Dixie's love survive the terror of fighting for the girl's freedom?

Along with her best friend Emily, and Blake's brother, Lathan, Dixie is thrust into the past to uncover the details of a murder, and a life of neglect and abandonment. Will the clues lead them to the truth and a way to rid the house of the apparitions who haunt it? Or will the horror of what happened drive the group apart?

Journey into a world of brothels, gambling, and political payoffs where sometimes even a guardian angel can't protect their charge

Meet the Author

Monique is the mother of two beautiful children and lives in a small community outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She currently works full time as an insurance agent, but her favor-ite jobs are mother, wife, and author. On her eighth birthday, her mother bought her a journal and said "write whatever you want, just write."

And so, a love affair with words was born. She wrote poetry and short stories in high school and college, until 1993 when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. After her moth-er's death in 1998, Monique fell into a deep depression and found herself unable to write. Nine years passed, and only on rare occasion did she attempt to write with no luck.

Finally, in 2007, under the urging of friends, she sat down and pecked out her first novel. It was raw and unpolished, but the process had been unquestionably cathartic. The next three years were spent filling her hard drive with seven complete manuscripts. At the beginning of 2011, Monique decided it was time to edit the work and share it with the world. She hopes you enjoy the ramblings of a deeply southern girl raised in a state rich with heritage and love.
