Cory, a female psychic, hears a ghost in the beautiful, but run-down mansion, Love Alley.  In the 1800's, Love Alley was used as a brothel. It belonged to an ancestor of Cory's, a madam, who mysteriously disappeared. Cory is fascinated, not only by the house, but also by its new owner, Louis.

Louis loves the house and plans to restore it.  When he realizes it is haunted, he contacts Cory for help.  Upon meeting her, Louis wants her so desperately, he even gets a little romantic help from the house ghost.  

Soon Cory and Louis are discovering the house's secrets, and their own connection to the past.  They might not understand what the ghosts want, but know they need each other. They decide to investigate together.

Haunting Love Alley is a hot, sexy read entwined in a wonderfully romantic mystery. Watching the suspense develop proved almost as great as the love story unfolding. In addition, the sex is smoking.  Parts of the book generated a wow response as I turned pages back to read them again.  I love how the authors do not use exaggerated and stereotypical accents and characters.  While the plot is outstanding, it is the characters who make this book perfect.  Open and funny, they are not only entertaining, but very likeable.  I enjoy Louisiana stories and the descriptions here, especially of the house, are lovely.  This writing team is one I look forward to reading again because Haunting Love Alley is an extraordinary book and has a well deserved place in my keeper file.
