On 11-29-12, I entered a contest at Goodreads called Mystery Cover. The moderator there, Christina, disguised the cover of a book and each day revealed a part of the cover. The prize was a copy of Rogue by Leigh Talbert Moore. To make a long story short, I made two guesses. The second time I guessed, it was only because a very small portion of the lower left hand cover of the book had writing, and I remembered seeing a copy of a book in the side bar that had writing in the lower left corner. So I guessed, The Paris Wife. There were two correct guesses that day, and by random chance my name was drawn. Anyway, the book arrived in my mailbox on Friday. I am really anxious to read it.
Trapped in the underground theater world of 1890's New Orleans, Hale Ferrer has only one goal: escape. But not without Teeny, the orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect. Freddie Lovel, Hale's wealthy Parisian suitor, seems to be the easy solution. If only his touch could arouse her interest like Beau's, the penniless stagehand who captures her heart. Denying her hears, Hale is poised to choose love until an evil lurking in their cabaret-home launches a chain of events that could cost her everything.
