But what she doesn't know is that Cole has been set up, and while she sets out to prove his guilt a real killer is on the loose?a man who now has Charlie in his sights, a man with yet another black silk stocking.

Is a picture worth a thousand words. . .

New York photographer Kelly Santos hides behind her camera and her talent, safe where no one can know about her tragic past...or the visions that haunt her.

. . .when it exposes a deadly truth?

Now, the past is reaching out to her, calling her back to her native New Orleans, to the mystery of her birth, to the hidden danger that waits. Almost from the moment Kelly returns, she is plagued by visions of murder. Only no one believes her—until a man turns up dead and Kelly becomes the prime suspect. Seeking the help of homicide detective Jack Callaghan, she sets out to prove her innocence.

But Kelly's quest for answers is leading them both on a treacherous path to the truth, to the heart of a sinister secret-and a killer who wants the past to stay buried . . . a killer who is prepared to finish a grim and deadly task begun many years ago.

"I'll pay you one million dollars to find my wife and son."

Ex-cop turned bounty hunter Michael Sullivan doesn't think any woman is worth that kind of money, but a job is a job.

All he has to do is make the phone call...

Just drop in the quarter and tell his client he's earned his money. Lily Webster and her son are in New Orleans, where she's working as a waitress. One phone call and he can collect a cool million bucks...and forget the beautiful woman who seems to be hiding something.

Too late, he realizes he's made a mistake...

Only after he's made the call does he begin to realize what he's done. In the blink of an eye Michael Sullivan becomes Lily's only chance for survival. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him. But why would she put her life—and the life of her son—in the hands of the man who


The Princess — New Orleans's most luxurious hotel. Sixty years ago, ownership of the hotel was lost to the powerful Jardine family in a wager that cost its matriarch her greatest love. Now, in a daring bid to keep the hotel, her legacy and her family together, she's made a new wager, betting everything on a granddaughter she's never met.


After her mother's tragic death, Laura Harte learns her life has been a lie. All she has left are questions. Why did her mother hide the truth from her? Why had her powerful father denied her? The answers can only be found in New Orleans — with a grandmother she never knew existed ... and a man she isn't sure she can trust.

Hotel magnate Josh Logan owns some of the world's finest hotels--but not the one he wants most: The Princess. He'll stop at nothing to reclaim his grandfather's legacy. Even if it means winning the heart of the young woman to whom The Princess rightfully belongs.


But as the secrets and sins of the past unravel, Laura and Josh find themselves in a dangerous game where no risk is too great and falling in love is not an option.


It was the ultimate gamble. Laura Spencer had bet herself against tycoon Jackson Hawk's plan to take over her New Orleans hotel. If she failed to raise fifteen million dollars within thirty days, Laura would soon find herself at Jack's mercy. And in his arms.

But had the businessman agreed to the wager because he wanted Laura? Or because if he won, Jack knew no one else would have her?


He hadn't known the name of the woman he danced with at the masquerade ball. Not even after their one night of passion. For millionaire Jack Cartwright never expected to see her again.

Then he received a letter informing him of his "secret" lover's name and threatening to expose the fact that working-class Lilly Miller was expecting Jack's child. He was not going to submit to blackmail. And if that meant marrying Lilly, a virtual stranger...let the wedding bells ring.
