A story of a psychologist Serena Sheridan, who has come back to the small Louisiana town where she'd been raised --- and where her grandfather has suddenly gone missing. Successful, ambitious, beautiful, Serena always found the darker world of the bayous far less predictable --- and far more treacherous --- than the life she'd chosen.
And for help, she must turn to a man as mysterious and dangerous as the backcountry itself: Lucky Doucet. He's a man with a past littered with secrets best left concealed --- the perfect guide to lead Serena into a world of dazzling seduction, sudden violence, and raw natural beauty. From the exotic French Quarter to the most remote bayou, they would follow a trail of corruption and betrayal to a showdown that would require they trust not only their own deepest instincts for survival --- but each other.
