New Orleans nightclub owner Mia LeMay’s protected Creole world shatters when she witnesses a murder and she’s forced to put her life in the hands of a man she’s never met. A man whose golden eyes hide as many dark, dangerous secrets as the killer who wants her dead.

Guilt twists like a knife in Agent Rick Ryder’s gut. He has a personal stake in keeping the black-haired beauty safe, and once his superiors figure out the stunt he pulled to make sure he’s the one protecting her, his life will be worth about as much as hers if he fails.

Deep in the Louisiana mangroves, the steamy bayou has nothing on the heat of desire surrounding them. But danger lurks in the shadows. Things that slither. Things that bite. And an evil determined to make sure Mia doesn’t live to see the light of another dawn…

"Wow, this book was so much better than I ever dreamed it could be!!! I don't normally read books like this but I was hooked the second I started reading it! I really felt like I was sitting on the edge of my seat as I read it. I was taken by the story, the characters and the detailed descriptions of everything as I read. You really start to feel like you are in Louisiana with Rick and Mia! Seriously, what a great book!!!" --Melissa Mendoza, Goodreads

However, I felt that the book could also have been published as a harleq ...more

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from Black Rose. As the description states, this is a previously published book and honestly, those can be hit or miss. I obviously didn’t pick it up the first time around, but when it was offered for review, it caught my attention. I love books with a touch of bla ...more

About the author

Jenna Ryan

Jenna Ryan was born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, but spent her childhood in several different areas of the country. She began creating stories before she could read. Growing up, romance alone had a strong appeal, but as it turned out, romantic suspense was the perfect fit. After all, what could be better than adding the darker elements of a mystery to a romantic relationship? And, oh, the fun of those secondary characters. Over the years, she has worked in several different industries, including modeling, interior design and travel, however, writing has always been her passion - even if she didn't go about it in the usual way. She earned a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Victoria in British Columbia and currently lives in a semi-rural setting fifteen minutes from that city.
