UNDERNEATH THE INNOCENCE LAY DESIRE...SECRETS...MYSTERY AND THE SENSUOUS TEMPTATIONS OF FRENCH SILK
Claire Laurent was a woman who embodied all of New Orleans' sultry paradoxes: beauty mixed with a mysterious elusiveness, a vibrant zest for living shadowed by secrets and hidden passions. Yet she had fought hard to make her fabulous lingerie mail order business, French Silk, into a worldwide success. Now, the three deadly bullets that killed a TV evangelist could snatch every-thing away from her, even her life.
Was the killer Claire? District Attorney Robert Cassidy knew she was damning herself with lie after lie about the murder, even as he felt powerful emotions drawing him into her world and her very soul. But neither Cassidy's love nor her protests of innocence could save Claire unless she revealed a shocking truth--a revelation of sins and shame she had vowed to take to the grave.
