SUMMARY
Vodou stole her life. A gay ghost stole her boots. And the man who stole her heart stole her memories. Kena plans to get it all back.

Ex-cop Kena's life is filled with regret, beer, and Cheetos. That is, until her ghostly roomie sends her dumpster diving, leading her to a sexy stranger named Luc and a fate she'd rather not remember. As Kena's memories resurface, so do her feelings for Luc, the man she's secretly been in love with for the last thousand years. And he needs her for more than a stroll down memory lane.

Vodou spirits, known as Loa, have been trapped in human form, and are trying to make their way back to the spirit world. But Luc's brother is possessed by a vengeance demon conjured at the hands of NOLA's crime syndicate kingpin. Saving him means damning herself to a spirit prison in a loveless, arranged union with the very man she's supposed to rescue. But not helping Luc's brother sentences him to death, leaving New Orleans in the hands of black magick, and losing Luc forever.

What's better than a paranormal romance? A paranormal romance with a kick ass heroine, that's what! Oh, and a gay best friend/roommate... and a ghost! What?! I did mention "paranormal".

In the heart of Louisiana, Kena has been in hiding... for many, MANY years. Except, she doesn't know she's in hiding. We meet Kena as a police officer in post Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. She's an officer on suspension under suspicion of misconduct while undercover as the girlfriend of Vinny, the Mafia leader's son.

When Hurricane Katrina came through and leveled the town, Vinny's father lost everything. To get his territory back, Vinny's father decided to dabble a bit with the spirit world, which he doesn't understand...and can't control. Powerful spirits get released and it's time for Kena to come out of hiding. What better way than having Luc, your friendly building supervisor to jog your memory.

I thought the synopsis would be what drew me to the book. While it was interesting, including a beautiful cover, it was the first couple of lines of the story that grabbed me. And kept me glued to the story. It was funny, it was charming, it was EVERYTHING! The characters, whether main or secondary, were well developed which made the story that much more compelling. There were scenes that had me in tears from laughing, but also in tears from sorrow. This story broke me down, built me back up, and broke me down again. I felt like I was on a roller coaster of emotions!

I love a story that has a strong female lead. Kena was strong on her own, but even stronger with Luc. The love scenes between them were stunning. They were sensual and passionate. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a plot to get wrapped up in, characters to fall in love with, and an awesome read.
