A romantic suspense focusing on a New Orleans Detective Sergeant and a psychologist. Characters are well developed and the setting well defined. The build to their romance is a back and forth leading up to their HEA.

This is the second book in the New Orleans Nights series. You do not have to read the books in order but the characters are mentioned so if you have read the first book you will understand who they are. Antoinette Deveraux is a psychologist who is trying to give up smoking. She is having a hard time giving up her long-loved habit. She tries to use it as a learning experience so that she would remember when she became impatient with people who refused to give up a habit that was damaging them. Police Detective Sam Long is the boyhood friend of a friend of Antoinette’s. Detective Long needs Dr. Long’s help in retrieving information from a little girl who was in a building that was bombed. She remembers falling asleep on a couch and woke up on the sidewalk with the building on fire, nothing in between. Sam is investigating the bombing and feels that the person who rescued the little girl may have had a hand in the bombing. The story is one of intrigue, romance, and family dynamics. The story takes place in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans, and the mysterious bayou. It was a great story that I plan to read more than once.

This second book in this New Orleans Nights series is a great suspense book and can be read as a stand alone. Detective Sergeant Sam Long is one of three friends who grew up together on the streets of New Orleans. Now that Sam turned out well as a cop in New Orleans, they have kept in touch and each have their own adult story. With his tough childhood, no one influenced Sam as much as his Uncle Claude, who lives amongst the bayous and swamps. When Sam was young, he spent a couple of years there with his uncle and two sons, Martin and Leonce, who he considers brothers. After being attracted to psychologist Antoinette, he decides to take her to Bayou Midnight for a weekend visit. Through this visit to see them, and at the fishing camp Sam owned, I was able to experience the beauty of the area right along with her. And Sam is a totally different person when back in what I consider to be his element. I learned a lot about the life Cajuns live through the author’s descriptive words. The suspense involves an arsonist. The romance is about the struggles Sam has with his determination to never fall in love, including with Antoinette. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to Skeeter’s story. It may be my new favorite of this series.

The plot of this second book in the New Orleans Nights series lends itself perfectly to the murky swamps of Louisiana. The mystery that unfolds coincides with the mysterious bayou and culture of the Cajun people. Romance and well developed characters allows the reader to identify with life’s challenges and a never ending desire to love and be loved. Another great romantic mystery by Emilie Richards. I recommend it especially after reading Lady of The Night. Kathy Dean

A real introduction into Louisiana bayou culture. I have never before felt such a sense of the reality of the swamps in anything else I have read about New Orleans and the bayous. The details and descriptions are fantastic, but I am not sure I would want to visit. The story of Antoinette and Sam is intriguing--and the resolution of the mystery and their story kept me reading long past my bedtime. Antionette's vice definitely dates the original book. Emilie Richards never disappoints.

This is a revamp of an earlier Romantic Suspense novel by Emilie Richards. You know that right off the bat by what an integral part of the story the main character’s cigarette smoking plays in her managing her stress. Although the smoking is a little weird for these days (I don’t think I’ve read a romance in decades that mentioned smoking besides this series), there is absolutely no way Ms. Richards could have taken it out during the modernization and kept the story intact. The setting is pre-Katrina New Orleans and Ms. Richards did an incredible job of describing the bayou in order to make it feel authentic and to give the reader a true feeling for it. You experience the beauty of the area through Antoinette’s eyes and emotions. Do I want to go to the swamps? No, but I’m glad Antoinette felt the beauty and could appreciate Sam’s home ground. Antoinette and Sam were professionals who were working together on an arson case. The attraction was there immediately, but Sam was just really emotionally a mess and kept throwing up wall after wall anytime they came close to a relationship. He was frustrating, but you kept getting glimpses of the man he could really be. This story had mystery, romance, hot stuff and heart stuff…all the good stuff.
