Leonie Saint-Andre, the granddaughter of an old Creole gentleman, thinks Morgan Slade is a scoundrel. Morgan, the son of a wealthy Natchez plantation family, thinks Leonie is a clever liar. Leonie claims Morgan married her, and fathered her five-year-old son. All she wants is her dowry returned to pay her dead grandfather's gambling debts and save their home. Morgan knows that he accepted neither dowry, nor Leonie's hand in marriage. But the woman before him awakens emotions he never thought he'd feel again. But that doesn't give reason for the imposter who signed his name to the marriage papers Leonie holds or why her son bears such a striking resemblance to Morgan himself.

Rapacious defined – aggressively greedy, ravenous, plundering, taking by force, subsisting on live prey.New Orleans, 1947It starts as a wandering daughter case when a sexy widow hires New Orleans Private Eye Lucien Caye to find her twenty-two year old daughter. The date is April 10, 1947, and Helen Croix walks into Caye's office with a picture of her missing daughter, a note her daughter left saying she plans to kill a man and then herself, along with a list of fifty-six names of her daughter's lovers.Helen and Lucien go through the list, eliminating names. The hours after that are spent on the over-sized sofa in his office as they give in to their mutual lust. After, Helen warns Lucien about her daughter, knowing he'll be tempted when he finds the alluring, strawberry-blond, temptress. Madelyn Croix will most likely seduce him. Helen describes her daughter as rapacious. Lucien has to look up the word to discover it means avaricious, greedy, ravenous – subsisting on live prey.On the list of names, Lucien comes across a love-sick lawyer, a photographer specializing in nude pictures of women, a suspicious psychiatrist, a jealous husband. Included in the story is the worst private eye in New Orleans, a mischievous black kitten and a bevy of pretty women more than willing to bed Lucien. Shortly after the love-sick lawyer is murdered, Madelyn Croix comes to Lucien one night with that curvaceous body and Prussian-blue eyes that blinks ever so slowly, precisely, like a falcon and he realizes – rapacious, like a raptor, a bird of prey. Madelyn hires Lucien to protect her. Someone is trying to kill her.This first novel in the Lucien Caye Series precedes ENAMORED (2012), which was nominated for the SHAMUS AWARD by the Private Eye Writers of America for BEST INDIE PRIVATE EYE NOVEL.
