College senior, Lottie Boyd, expects to drink too much while on spring break in New Orleans. What she doesn’t expect is to be haunted. Or fall in love. But that’s exactly what happens.
It starts with strange, vivid dreams about a 19th century widow so desperate to save her sick little girl, she’s willing to do anything–even if it involves the black magic of Voodoo. It doesn’t end there. Voices, ghost sightings, familiarity with things and places she couldn’t possibly know. All leading her to the Villere House of Voodoo and the young Creole owner, Xavier Villere.
Xavier is compelled to help and is drawn to Lottie in a way he’s never known, but skepticism of his family’s century-old link to Voodoo and the occult keep her at arms length. If he can only come to terms with his heritage, he might be able to help solve the mystery of the widow plaguing Lottie’s dreams. And maybe even find love in the process.
Note: Villere House is an adult romance and not suitable for readers under 18.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Villere House blew me away!!!! Brilliant story and brilliant writing! This book was nothing like I expected…FABULOUS. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for more than a romance. Because Villere House is not your typical romance. I think I need to make a trip to Louisiana soon!
I will admit that I’ve had Villere House on my Kindle for quite sometime. Something always got in the way of me starting it. I’m now kicking myself that I didn’t start it sooner. Romance… The occult… Brilliant attention to detail with great flow that made it hard to not devour this story in one sitting. If only real life didn’t get in the way of reading 😉
I knew almost immediately that this book was going to be amazing because the writing just sucked me in. I can’t even begin to imagine how much time was spent researching for this story. Leslie Fear and C.D. Hussey have written such a unique romance. Packed full of mystery and suspense — jumping between the past and present — not once did Ms. Fear or Ms. Hussey lose my attention. It killed me to have to put this book down when “real life” got in the way.
Villere House has great characters, past and present. Elise, Laurent, Lottie, Xavier, and Julien are characters I won’t soon forget. Some will make you smile, and some will make your pulse race 😉 Some will make you angry, while others will make your skin crawl!
Another thing I really enjoyed about Villere House… That this story had the perfect amount of hot sexy time! If you’re looking for a gratuitous raunchy read, you will not find it here. Lately I feel that many of the new releases are packed full of gratuitous sex and lacking in story. You know the old saying, “Less is more.”
If you are looking for an absolutely amazing suspenseful read to keep you on the edge of your seat, something more than just a romance, but an intriguing mystery… Villere House should not be missed out on! Nic
