She brought you sizzling romantic suspense with GUILTY
PLEASURES and THE BEST REVENGE. Now bestselling author
Stella Cameron takes you to America's most sensuous city for
a searing tale of scandal and revenge. Set in lush and
languid New Orleans, FRENCH QUARTER is the story of Celina
Payne, a talented and beautiful woman thrust into a
harrowing world of murder and deceit, who must not only
fight for her life and her future, but fo the soul of a man
who could fulfill her entirely-or ruin both their lives.
Celina Payne still celebrates the day she met visionary New
Orleans business man Errol Petrie. When Petrie hired her to
represent Dreams-a company that caters to the whims of the
wealthy and uses the profits to fund the wishes of dying
children-he rescued her from a domineering mother and the
suffocating world of high society. But Celina's new-found
happiness is shattered too soon. Arriving one morning at
Petrie's opulent French Quarter mansion, Celina finds him
dead-with all the evidence of a night of sexual excess
around him-and is hurled into an unimaginable nightmare.
In the days and weeks that follow, Celina will be hounded by
a cadre of scandal-hungry reporters who smell sensation in
her boss's flamboyant death, and stalked by a ruthless
politician who sees a way to turn her vulnerability to his
advantage. But most of all, Celina finds herself fleeing
Jack Charbonnet, Petrie's business partner and best friend.
The bitter and volatile Charbonnet is certain that Celina is
hiding something about his old friend's murder and will stop
at nothing to discover what it is. Jack is right about one
thing. Celina is keeping a secret-one that makes her heart
swell with tenderness and sorrow-and one she is determined
In the sultry heat of the bayou, amid the gothic buildings
of the old French Quarter, passions tangle, as Jack and
Celina draw dangerously close to the truth about Errol
Petrie-and alarmingly close to each other. And when Jack's
ties to New Orleans's underworld come back to haunt him, he
will find himself trapped with Celina in a world more
twisted, more starkly evil than even he could ever have
With America's most intriguing and mysterious city as its
backdrop, FRENCH QUARTER delivers chilling suspense,
seething sensuality, and an utterly compelling love story.
This is a compelling tale of a woman who dares to break more
than one unwritten rule.
