Book 1 - Braggette series
None of the guests gathered beneath the elegant portico of Shadows Noir suspected that the mysterious Belle had an identical twin. Fate had given them both devastating beauty, and destiny had brought them to the New Orleans plantation to clear their father of a trumped-up murder charge.
Now, as Belle and her sister become players in a daring masquerade, two men compete for their hearts: Insolent, seductive Trace Braggette and his younger brother Traxton, the gunslinger whose rugged charms conceal a dangerous secret. For somewhere amid the sultry heat of Shadows Noir, a killer lurks . . . imperiling the lives of two women caught up in a web of intrigue, betrayal — and irresistible passion.
