About The Book
A HAUNTING DESIRE
By: Julie Mulhern
Release Date: July 28th, 2015
The demi-monde of turn of the century New Orleans ignores the ghosts who crowd their streets. The dangers of voodoo mean little to them. That is until something dark and evil begins eviscerating men and leaving them in the gutters.
For Trula Boudreaux, madam of the city’s most exclusive brothel, murder is bad for business. Trula needs help but she's not prepared for Zeke Barnes, the charming would-be savior who awakens forbidden yearnings. Trula knows well the delights of lust, she avoids love at all costs...
Finding killers who lurk in the shadows is something Zeke understands. But, for the first time ever, he’s caught between his duty to stop a murderer and his clear-as-day desire for Trula. Zeke sets about capturing Trula's heart-or at least a place in her bed. But with every moment Trula resists, Zeke falls into greater danger.
For his investigation into the haunted city doesn't just risk his heart but both their lives.

The absolute first thing I have to talk about is this cover. THIS. COVER. Unf! I can't stop looking at it. I want to pull the designer off to the side and just hug them and buy them puppies and cookies and tell them all the things I love about it. This is the kind of cover that I bee-line for when I'm at the bookstore or scrolling through my Kindle eStore.
Alright, enough gushing on that. Let's talk about what's beneath the cover. 2015 has been the year of historical fiction for me. A genre I normally would pass up with out a second thought in previous years, has quickly become one that I want before anything else and it's books like A HAUNTING DESIRE that have forced this change in me. The beautifully constructed ambiance of 1902 New Orleans is mesmerizing, and Mulhern excels at putting you right there.
A HAUNTING DESIRE rolls all my favorite things into one book. Romance, murder, mystery, paranormal touches, a man with a "whisky voice" (swoon), and a main character who embraces all that she is and all that is around her.
A HAUNTING DESIRE is dark and twisty with a coating of blood that will have your flipping pages faster and faster as the book goes on. Be ready to sit the whole book through, stopping will not be an option once you dive in. And if you must set it aside, be ready to think of nothing else until you can get back. I can't recommend this book enough, it needs to be on your holiday wish lists and shopping lists for the reader in your life!
