My Review
This is one awesome book it is written perfectly and it sucks you in right away so when you start reading have all your snacks and drinks you will  need beside you cause you are not gonna wanna go anywhere till the book is finished.Main Characters Fashion designer Catherine Doucette and Ex-Cop Remi Michaud.The story is set in the French Quarter of New Orleans she couldn't have picked a better place. Catherine's parents were killed in a car wreck when she was at a young age and Grandmother Douchette won't let anyone raise her precious Catherine but a Douchette let me say the Douchette are people from money. Catherine works for her Grandmother at Ma Cherie, a very high end boutique that has been in the family for a long time and is passed on to the oldest Granddaughter this sure puts Grandmother in a pickle because Catherine is the youngest and is the only one with a ounce of talent and is a down to earth girl who is sweet as pie and tries to alway do the right thing . Ok i am getting ahead of myself here . Catherine life is in shambles right now . Catherine and her best friend where walking down the street at lunch time trying to get to a restaurant when she spot her boyfriend from across the street who told her he had a meeting kissing another woman as Catherine tries to turn around without being seen and well her luck dont hold out, he spots her from across the street running to her to explain and Catherine dont wanna hear it he grabs her by her arm and starts to get a little rough when her knight in shining armor shows up Remi and ask is there a problem here i believe the lady said let her go and the ex turns to him and says mind your own business  well one thing leads to another and the ex gets his butt kicked.Catherine looks up into Remi eyes and is fascinated right off the bat. She is a proper lady and tell him thank you and leaves .Remi can't get the lady out of his mind he keeps thinking of her but figures he blew it cause he dont even know her name or where to find her. Catherine's best friend is having a Masquerade Party and she is going as a Ice princess thats what her ex use to call her. She arrives in a beautiful Gown she made herself and a silver mask. This is where fate steps in just so happens Remi business partner and best friend they own a security business together just happens to be Catherine best friends Husband which he has yet to to meet his partners wife. Remi comes as a Pirate well before anyone could introduce anyone Remi Spots the Princess and is Enchanted by her so he gets closer to her and there is just something about her but he can't put his finger on it .What is it about her? She recognizes him from the get go but doesn't give herself away he ask her if she would like to get some fresh air and she accepts.Gently Remi leans down to kiss her and instantly fill electricity together. She has decided this is her night no one knows who she is she can be anyone she wants to be and she kisses Remi back things get hot and heated and Catherine asked Remi to follow her she knows a place they can be alone. Thats all i'm giving away on this part you have to buy the book to get the whole story and boy is it a wonderful hot , steamy,little mystery,backstabbing,Romance and yes even love.
Catherine grandmother realizes that the granddaughter the store should pass on has no talent either one of the two and would run the business in the ground so she decides she isnt gonna follow the tradition she signs Ma Cherie over into Catherine's name  and what a surprise that one was to Catherine cause the women of the family can't stand her as it is they are all jealous but as humble a Catherine is she can't understand why.Well when the family is informed of this all h** breaks lose.I am just gonna give you some highlights here cause my review is already a mile long i could talk about this book all day long.Strange things start happening after the family is told her car wont start which worked just fine yesterday and then little things keep happening. The straw that broke the camels back is as she is closing up the store she is attacked and was able to get away.Her Grandmother isnt taking this lightly she has the store security system upgraded and has a body guard put on Catherine night and day till this is figured out.Grandmother hires her best friends husband to take care of all the security and watching over her granddaughter what Catherine dont know is who her bodyguard is non other than her Pirate here is where things start really getting good.To add to what i wrote above attempts on Catherines life. More things start happening,family back stabbing starts,kidnapping,ohh but never fear this book has plenty of hot steamy scenes,mobsters,drug dealers,and you never know what's gonna happen next so this is most diffidently one of the best books i have read this year . I am sorry for such a long review but this book is totally action packed to the brim. A must have for your Library . Amazing job Debby Grahl.

It’s Mardi Gras time in New Orleans. Attending a masquerade ball, wealthy fashion designer Caterine Doucette, dressed as a shimmering ice princess, has her cool façade shattered when she encounters Bayou-born ex-cop Remi Michaud, disguised as the darkly handsome pirate Jean Lafitte. Their true identities hidden, the princess and the pirate come together in an explosion of passion and desire. But when fantasy turns to cold reality, Caterine panics and disappears into the night, unaware this man will soon be sent to rescue her from a killer and will capture her heart. Orphaned at a young age, Caterine grew up in the home of her beloved grandmother, Miss Dauphine Doucette. Despised by her Doucette relatives for the devotion she received from her grandmère, Caterine suffered years of envy and disdain. The young Caterine learned quickly how easily the love she had to give could be thrown back in her face. After Miss Dauphine turns over ownership of the century-old fashion house, Ma Chérie, to Caterine, an attempt is made on her life, for there are those in the Doucette family who will stop at nothing to possess what they feel is their rightful inheritance. Not knowing whom to trust, Caterine goes into hiding. Miss Dauphine, convinced someone in her own family is behind the attack, hires Remi, now working for a private security company, to track her down and unmask her would-be assassin. Learning that the affluent Caterine Doucette is the beautiful princess he held in his arms at the ball, Remi is torn between his growing desire for her and painful memories of another rich socialite’s betrayal. Caterine finds herself falling in love with Remi, but old embedded pain leaves her afraid to open her heart. Down in the Big Easy, Caterine and Remi must learn to trust one another if they are to survive in a world of family greed and ruthless revenge.
