Errol Petrie was a hero in the eyes of Celina Payne. He had rescued her from the stuffiness of high society, a domineering mother and put her to work in charge of his company. But one morning when she arrives at his French Quarter mansion, she finds him dead.

Sure that Celina was the woman with Errol the night that he died, Jack Charbonnet takes extra steps to protect Celina, much to her dismay and unwittingly begins to seduce her.

Mixed with high society, manipulating money men and the press, Jack and Celina find themselves thrown into the middle of a mystery where they can trust no one. Not even each other.

Ms. Cameron has here another spell binding story that will keep a reader up all night. Celina is a wonderful heroine who deals with the situation around her smoothly and calmly, even if it is on the surface. The only real problem I have with this story is Jack, who was given to assume what Celina had done, was pigheaded, foul mouthed and at times an all around jerk. However, his character still had me rooting for them from the stands to solve the mystery and save the day.
