Vodou stole her life. A gay ghost stole her boots. And the man who stole her heart stole her memories. Kena plans to get it all back.
Ex-cop Kena’s life is filled with regret, beer, and Cheetos. That is, until her ghostly roomie sends her dumpster diving, leading her to a sexy stranger named Luc and a fate she’d rather not remember. As Kena’s memories resurface, so do her feelings for Luc, the man she’s secretly been in love with for the last thousand years. And he needs her for more than a stroll down memory lane.
Vodou spirits, known as Loa, have been trapped in human form, and are trying to make their way back to the spirit world. But Luc’s brother is possessed by a vengeance demon conjured at the hands of NOLA’s crime syndicate kingpin. Saving him means damning herself to a spirit prison in a loveless, arranged union with the very man she’s supposed to rescue. But not helping Luc’s brother sentences him to death, leaving New Orleans in the hands of black magick, and losing Luc forever.
I love myth and legend, I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. I LOVE it. This book was based around the Loa, Voodoo gods and goddesses that help guide and protect humans. They come when called in voodoo ceremonies. Well, in this book, they were trapped in human form.
We start out by meeting Kena, and her gay ghost roommate! (He teaches Zumba! Dying), and then we happen upon Luc. From that moment on, it’s just a crazy ride of drama, romance, and some heavy heavy voodoo! They have battles ahead of them, and Kena is just getting into this world. She’s got a whole bunch of history she isn’t even aware of, all she knows is Luc makes her weak in the knees!
Overall, this book is awesome! Micheals is a master storyteller. It’s a great balance of romance and the paranormal elements and was perfect for a pre-halloween read! Kena is a girl after my own heart with her leather boots, and her sweet tooth. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I wasn’t sure where it was going, but I was excited to go along for the ride!
This was my first book by this author, and I’ll be on the lookout for more! Her writing style is not to be missed, it’s up there with some of the best paranormal romance novelists! Get a copy!
