Release Date: January send 2018
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Nicolas Deschanel spent thirty-two years holding court as the princeling of New Orleans and heir to his family’s dynasty, with no obligations beyond his own pleasures. Following a storm of events, his rock bottom leads him back to his family, where he finds redemption in contrite service. Paired with the pragmatic Lauren-who is deeply skeptical of his reformation-the two spend their days in seclusion, cultivating the lofty research goals of the Deschanel Magi Collective.
Charlotte Fontenot is calculated and driven in her approach to her mission in Paris. With help from her cousin Julian, they follow Gabrielle and Lawrence Henry, siblings whose unusual behavior has caught the attention of witches in Paris. The cousins quickly realize neither sibling is what they seem, and Charlotte’s fearlessness leads her closer and closer to mysterious philanthropist Lawrence.
With Charlotte and Julian settled in Paris, Nicolas and Lauren shift their focus to a special, secret project: quietly and carefully investigating the women of the powerful LaViolette family, distant cousins of the Deschanels. This assignment quickly leads them down a dangerous path, one where turning back is no longer an option. Events in both New Orleans and Paris begin to spin wildly beyond the control of all involved, and when the dust settles, nothing will ever be the same.
From USA Today bestselling paranormal author Sarah M. Cradit comes a thrilling new series, Midnight Dynasty.
New Orleans is a vibe.
From the culture to the city, everything has that mystery and charm only New Orleans can offer.
Right from the beginning, I was pulled into the world of Deschanels. Nicolas is brooding and struggling with his own demons. That only made him more appealing to me. There is a sense of unseen danger. I can’t properly describe it but you can feel that something monumental is building. That made it impossible to put the book down! I needed to know what would happen next! The characters were interesting in their own way. Intertwined by family yet so very different. The story picks up and I am rapidly turning pages and then Miss Cradit hits me with that ending. BAM! What just happened? Yes my mouth is open. Well done Miss Cradit, well done.
If you’re a fan of stories taking place in New Orleans and love magic, this book and series is for you. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed. Add it to your TBR today! I give it 5 stars.
