Sultry days in the Big Easy get a lot steamier with three novellas wrapped around the legend of a voodoo spirit who can fulfill every darkest fantasy. All of these dovetailing stories are fun, hot and romantic.
A voodoo spirit helps three New Orleans couples achieve satisfaction. In “Release Me,” freelance writer Allegra heads to New Orleans to heal her own wounds, but she could save the gorgeous, troubled Rousseau, whose soul is shadowed by a sexual spirit. Michelle is running hard from both her heritage and Ben, who’s loved her since they were young. But Ben’s got a sizzling spirit to help him finally land the woman of his dreams in “Reclaim Me.” It’s All Saint’s Day and the sexy spirit known as Bone Daddy is given a day to walk the Earth as a man. When he bumps into the shyly bookish Bethany, he may have found the reincarnation of the woman he once loved. Passion flares but can the pair find a way to “Redeem Me” and be together when his time is almost up? (HEAT, Aug., 304 pp., $15.00)
