Before he died, Christine Lambert’s father won a piece of eight in a poker game. How was he to know the coin was part of a puzzle that when solved revealed the location of Jean Laffite’s treasure? Now Christine must find the treasure before the killer beats her to it.

Matthias Blake is as out of place in New Orleans as a raven in a flock of hummingbirds. He has serious work to do and Christine is a distraction he doesn’t need. But how can he resist a lady in distress—even if that lady can win a fight armed with a hat pin? Together they must overcome their pasts and defeat dark forces sent by a shadowy evil. In the process, they just might find the greatest treasure of all…
  

 
Bayou Nights by Julie Mulhern

Bayou Nights (Haunting Desire, #2)Hidden pirate treasure, legends of great riches, a deadly villain and an unlikely couple who may find something more precious than gold. Bayou Nights by Julie Mulhern takes us back to New Orleans, the city of magic, mysteries and dark secrets. One gambler won a piece of eight and that singular coin would become the part of the answer to the whereabouts of the hidden treasures of Jean Laffite. ..and then he went missing, is it murder, magic, or something darker?

Christine is determined to uncover the treasure in a race against a killer, because really, if she doesn’t the ghost of her father could nag her forever. Who better to help than an investigator used to the paranormal? Then again, is he ready for the “magical charm” of New Orleans? Nothing could have prepared Matthias Blake, who cannot resist being her protector any easier than he can resist her charms. Will they experience potent emotions of New Orleans or will they create their own boiling brew of love?

Sound like a dreamy historical romance with a touch of the paranormal? Not with the creative writing of Julie Mulhern! Meet ghosts, a voodoo queen and MORE as her characters come to life (or almost life) with clever humor and unpredictable actions. A strong-willed heroine, a dashing hero, evil, and a lot of gold at the end of race, who will win the prize? Does it really exist or is it one of New Orleans many secrets?

A delightful read without a dull moment filled with humor, heat and the feel that only New Orleans possesses.

I received an ARC edition from Entangled: Select Historical in exchange for my honest review.
