Summary

From a New York Times–bestselling author: In New Orleans, a young woman uncovers a family conspiracy only to find solace in a man with a dangerous past.   In nineteenth-century New England, flame-haired Skye Cameron was proud to be named for the misty island in the Scottish Hebrides where her father had been born—but it was the Creole heritage of her seductive mother, Louise, that would determine her destiny.   In the wake of her father’s death, with finances dwindling, Louise has accepted an invitation to return to her family home in New Orleans and start fresh. But as soon as Skye sets foot in her Uncle Robert’s dark, latticed mansion in the French Quarter—one ruled by a suspicious quadroon housekeeper—she begins to fear her homecoming is not what it seems. Feeling more outsider than family, Skye finally finds love, comfort, and trust in a man who both provokes and excites her. Justin Law’s scandalous reputation doesn’t stop her from developing feelings for the intense and determined stranger.   Now, from the Vieux Carré to the Garden District, Skye must navigate the darkest corners of New Orleans—a pawn in a dangerous game designed to destroy her.   With this novel, Edgar Award–winning author Phyllis A. Whitney once again proves why she is “the Queen of the American gothics” (The New York Times).  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author’s estate.

    Mom caught me mind controlling sis. She didn’t know why her precious daughter was behaving in such a slutty manner. She blamed me. Ha, if only she knew.
    
    Distraught, mom drank the wine that I had laced.
    
    Now she was also my cum slut and would do whatever I told her to. Including fuck the dog.
    
    Excerpt:
    
    "Mom, come down and let me explain." Randy said as he pulled his cock from his sister's warm mouth.
    
    "My sweet little angel would never do this!" Ruth screamed at him as her eyes blazed with fury.
    
    "I was just sitting in my room and she called me and then she started stripping." He said, knowing she wouldn't buy that. Monica never could do anything wrong.
    
    Hell, if his sister had a been caught in the front room fucking twenty guys, mom would have shrugged her shoulders and allowed her to do it.
    
    The opposite was true if he even glanced at a stacked girl. His mother would've whacked him over the head and told him the mind his own business.
    
    "Do you expect me to believe that garbage?" Ruth strode over to him and slapped him on the cheek.
    
    With great reluctance, Randy pulled from his sister's warm mouth and when his mother struck him again, he blocked it.
    
    "Take care of Fido, sis." He glanced back at Monica as she bucked her hips, groaning with pleasure.
    
    "How dare you! I'm your mother and I can do whatever I want with you." She snarled.
    
    "Mom, if you ever want me to free sis from this, then you'll do what I want. Or she'll stay like this forever." He stated as he looked in her eyes.
    
    She recognized that he was dead serious and nodded her head.
    
    "Now come over here and sit down." He commanded as he pointed to the sofa.
    
    She dragged her feet to the couch and sat down as he instructed. Her eyes were like an angry cat's, ready to strike out.
    
    "You're going to drive me to drink, boy." She stated as she waited for him to explain himself.
    
    "Oh yes!" Monica groaned as Bruno spilled his dominant dog seed in her fertile womb. "That's it! I want all that dog cum deep in me."
    
    His mother gasped at the words spoken by her precious little angel. Then she turned her attention to him.
    
    "What have you done to her?" She demanded to know. "My baby would never do such nasty acts with a filthy animal!"
