For while Trula knows well the delights of lust, she avoids love at all costs…

Investigating the killer was one thing, but Zeke can’t help but be enchanted by the gorgeous mystery woman who runs an exclusive brothel. Caught between his duty to protect the city and his clear-as-day desire for Trula, Zeke sets about capturing Trula’s heart-or at least a place in her bed. But with every moment Trula resists, Zeke falls into greater danger.

For his investigation into the haunted city and madam doesn’t just risk his heart but both their lives.

A very, very nice mystery/romance with a touch of paranormal!

I really enjoyed the ambience and the demi-monde surrounding! Also the glimpse of the crude world of brothels.

Sensational book that transported me to historical New Orleans--the sultry, exotic atmosphere as well as the back alley horror.

I absolutely loved this book, the setting, the time period, the legends/mythology, all of it. I think that residents/natives/fans of New Orleans will enjoy it as well.

An usual Historical Romance/Mystery with Paranormal element. a Gothic type read, to me, but very enjoyable. Fast paced, action filled, but not for the faint of heart.

"Trula opened an eye, judged the afternoon, and found it lacking. Her lid fluttered shut." This is Julie Mulhern's writing right here. She just nails it--and makes you smile. Her book plunged me into a wholly unfamiliar and fascinating world. Her writing style is highly evocative, steeped in mood... ...more

I had so much fun reading this novel. I was intrigued as soon as I saw the tour announcement from Me, My Shelf and I, and knew I wanted to take part. When I was growing up, in my teen years (which were quite some time ago, I’ll admit), I DEVOURED historical romance. I believe I’ve read every book... ...more

By Melody September 29, 2015

My first Julie Mulhern novel, I love a twisted mystery along with some romance. Ms. Mulhern brings it. I will admit that I got a bit confused with the terminology she used - very period driven, southern gothic confused me and jumbled the beginning around for me, but please give it a chance. It is... ...more

About the author

Julie Mulhern

Julie Mulhern is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean--and she's got an active imagination. Truth is--she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions. Her first romance was a finalist in the 2014 Golden Heart contest. That book, A Haunting Desire releases July 28, 2015. Julie also writes mysteries. The Deep End (available now) is her first mystery and is the winner of The Sheila Award. Look for book two, Guaranteed to Bleed, in October, 2015.
