Who is the Louisiana Lady? Can you decide? Does she know herself?

Cadie Devoe was raised in a brothel and put to work by the madam, her mother, at a very young age. Denied schooling, she ran off to the library at every opportunity. If caught, dire consequences would followed … Yet she was often seen climbing the sturdy old oak tree that graced the unattended yard, one of its large branches served as her reading haven, and — the precarious entrance to her second story bedroom window.

Andrea Devoe, a name picked by her benefactor, fit the young cultured woman who was educated in Europe, sought after by every male in sight, and hated by her society girlfriends for just that reason. Becoming a recluse, she turned out to be a bright, quick, intuitive young woman, always thirsty for knowledge, yet sadly hungry for true human contact and simple loving kindness.

Andie Devoe, a Louisiana detective, uses the knowledge she learned in her youth, against men who now commit the very crimes she was once deeply involved in. Andie’s always been perfectly capable and comfortable of walking in both worlds. It’s only after meeting a devilishly handsome, caring, and extremely perceptive man, that she believes she has known in past lives, that she begins to have doubts about her own life, her morals … and her method, as a detective, of apprehending her man!

Read about Andie Devoe, a tough New Orleans detective, originally trained in Quantico and schooled by one of the best martial arts teachers in the world, who has decided to become an undercover cop in the city of her birth. Choosing to dedicated herself to the cause of abused, or abducted women, and the hideous, yet very profitable sex slave trade, she uses every trick in the book. Once you read her story, you can decide who the Louisiana Lady really is!
