A Review for Red: A Seduction Tale

Every once in a while Google delivers a nice little surprise to my inbox. Today was one of those mornings.

I received a nice review for my novella, Red: A Seduction Tale, from The Romance Book Scene. I have to confess, I'd not seen this site before and found it nicely done and full of romance news and reviews. Well, done!

Red is a favorite story of mine. I love New Orleans and Bourbon street and when the idea hit me of writing the grown-up version of Little Red Riding Hood, I could think of no other place for the setting but there. The thrill of Bourbon street and the magic of the bayou, for me, was as seductive as the story itself.

I think the reviewer liked it, too. Here is the review, if you'd like to read.


Garnet Boudreaux is going home. Not back to her nice little apartment in New York City, but to her childhood home in the bayou. She doesn’t want to go, and isn’t certain what will be waiting for her when she arrives. But standing there in the voodoo shop on Bourbon Street, in the middle of one helluva party, she’s told by Madame Madeleine Dupuis that she has no choice. She presses two pouches into Garnet’s hands, wraps a red cape around her, and tells her she must go—and go now—to see to her grandmother.

Max LeBlanc spies the lovely red-head across the street and knows in a heartbeat she is the one. A rougarou always knows when he’s met his mate. Some may call him a lycanthrope, a werewolf if you will, but in Cajun bayou lands he’s known simply as The Rougarou. He’d waited several hundred years for this moment, and for her. There is nothing left for him to do, but mark her and claim her as his mate. Soon.

Red: A Seduction Tale, is available in ebook formats at Fictionwise and at the Resplendence Publishing Web site.
