A Corde Noire Novel
by Alexandrea Weis
Release Date: February 22, 2016
Born with a gift, Melinda Harris can see visions of the future.
Nathan Cole is the man who wants to possess her and her power.
A member of the elite Corde Noire Society, Nathan introduces Melinda to his dark world of pleasure and pain. At first, Melinda likes what Nathan teaches her, but then her visions begin warning her to the terrible secret her handsome Dom is hiding.
Visions of the future, not your future but the future of others. That is how the "gift" works. For Maddie, this "gift" was a way to make ends meet as well as a curse. She is an intriguing character, complex in her own way, and full of visceral emotions that come with just scraping by with little income. She craves the independence and security that comes with having enough to cover expenses and actually wear new clothes. She is not a fortune hunter, but she is hungry for more than what she has been able to scrape by.
I loved Jack! Always available to help her and loyal to the love he feels for her. Isn't it always the nice guy who is just there, the one who does not get the girl? You will have to read this story to find out. Just know that all that glitters is not gold... fool's gold attracts but it is not real. The desire to be loved and cared by someone is a real human need. What happens when that turns sour?
No place in the world could possibly be the backdrop for this story other than New Orleans. The mysterious, balmy and laid back way of the Big Easy is the perfect backdrop for this story full of greed, passion, and revenge.
