Villere House is one of the most intriguing, roller coaster-like, voodoo performing, and absolutely poetic books of 2013.
Written by C. D. Hussey and Leslie Fear
I was given an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Well, here is my 5 star review!
While on spring break in New Orleans with her friends Lottie is plagued by strange dreams, talking water, and even stranger actions that land her in the hospital. While out one day, Lottie feels a strong pull to visit a Voodoo shop, while there she meets the handsome Xavier Villere, Creole owner of the Voodoo shop. They feel a very strong connection to each other, but why? Will he be able to help Lottie figure out these dreams and strange happenings or will she die trying to find answers?
I am from Louisiana and I love reading books based on cities in the state. I found this book to be unique and very captivating. I was up late into the night flipping pages and having a hard time putting it down! I think this book captured the beauty and mystery of the city. It was very well written with a great dose of mystery, suspense, and romance. I am looking forward to the next installment in the series Bayou Grise.
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.
Xavier is oh, so, delicious "He immediately pulled her closer, his arm wrapping around the small of her back. His moan of approval was so delicate, so subdued, she couldn't hear it, only feel it as it vibrated her lips."
Excerpt #2 ( about the couple, Laurent and Elise)
"His dark eyes shifted to her and he took her in from head to toe before seeming to remember his manners and bowing..."
