Michelene Tyner has her finger on the pulse of the Louisiana elite, from the local sheriff, art dealers and restaurateurs, to the mayor. As a personal shopper, with an eye for the exquisite and an ear willing to listen, Michelene knows all of their dark fantasies and secret liaisons. Everyone falls equally under her charms. That includes criminal defense attorney Chase Alexander. In no time, their motto of not mixing business with pleasure melts away beneath the sultry New Orleans nights. But when Michelene's childhood friend is brutally murdered, and Chase is called in to defend the accused, Michelene is torn between her love for Chase and her loyalty to her friend's memory, especially when she discovers that she holds the piece of evidence that will not only bring down a murderer, but dismantle Chase's career.
