* REVIEW * Creole Moon (A Novel of New Orleans) by Genevieve Stuart

Reviewer : Reanna
Rating : 4.5 Stars

Lucie was born into a time where women were supposed to marry, get pregnant and look pretty, well she wants more.  When her husband turns out to be far less than she hoped for and unfortunate circumstances force her to be the man he should have been she finds one man to help.

Stephen Arroyo is on a mission, a mission for revenge that may cost him more than he bargains for. The treasure he's found is nothing compared to what he might lose in the process.

I really liked the characters in this book, set in late 1840's New Orleans during the war between Mexico and the US times were hard, and in New Orleans the population was diverse. Women were trophies, mistresses were common and happiness for some seemed like just a dream. Lucie is young but forced to grow up quickly and she learns in the process that success is not just measured by your husband and sometimes you must learn to do for yourself and your family.

This story pulled me in and kept me turning the pages, it had a little romance and a lot of heart. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.

New Orleans is no place for an independent woman. Amid the intrigue and glamour of the delta city, Lucie must find her own way as she struggles to recover from devastating loss and what she fears is the end of love. The last thing she wants is to be beholden to a man – especially a man as infuriating and intriguing as the mysterious newcomer from Spain. 

Stephen Arroyo is known in New Orleans as a cool-headed gambler with a shadowy past. Robbed of what was most precious to him, Stephen is caught in a fierce battle for revenge and redemption. 

Lucie and Stephen need each other, in ways they can only begin to understand. But can they overcome the demons that entrap their hearts and give in to the powerful force that pulls them together? 

This meticulously researched and wildly romantic historical novel takes readers from the jungles of Mexico to the glittering elegance of 1840’s New Orleans. Creole Moon is the first Kindle ebook release from historical romance author Genevieve Stuart.
