I had purchased a copy of this book before the opportunity to review was presented by the author. As always, I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

First in the “Gun Totin’ Hottie” series, and it starts off the series with every element checked off with panache. Elizabeth is a character with a skewed sense of humor that very much reminded me of Evonovich’s Stephanie Plum. The book proceeds with rapid fire dialogue, with funny nearly slapstick, portrayal of the scene around her.

At the heart of the story is the curse around the hidden treasure of Jean Lafitte, and just why Elizabeth has a coin from the treasure. Just how much she remembers beyond the drowning of her lover Juan, and just why he is in her living room.

Combining action, humour, some really sexy scenes and the myriad of beliefs that are common in the bayou country of Louisiana; the story rolls from one highlight to the next. Characters are well developed and their interactions are believable. There are a few nice twists that fit well into a serialized story – while this section is neatly wrapped and tied with a bow; there are no complete ends to any of the intermingled stories. A great start off for a series that hopefully, will center on Elizabeth and her new Louisiana roots.
