New Orleans Confidential agent Seth Lewis is trying to infiltrate the Cajun mob by posing as a fat cat. He plans to meet widow Adrienne Deblanc, whose chain of Cajun Perk coffee houses fronts a drug trade. Adrienne's desperate to leave, but fearful of Jerome Senegal, against whom Confidential's building a case—and with whom Seth shares a dark personal history. Neither Seth nor Adrienne finds trust easy, but both are in danger and trying to save one another. Mallory Kane's Bulletproof Billionaire (3) is very fresh, though her hero's a little raw and there are some cloying elements in the relationship.
