Publisher's Summary

When romance author Elliot Jentry's husband is killed in the line of duty, Elliot decides to leave the painful memories behind and move to Louisiana with her two children. She purchases a derelict plantation home in the hopes of starting a new life. The old home, originally named Sophie but now known as Purgatory, was owned by the family of pirate Louis-Michel Aury for 200 years. The old house, built with the blood money of pirates, is full of legends and ghosts, as Elliot quickly discovers.
Helping Elliot acclimate to the house is Nash Aury, descendent of the great pirate and Sheriff of Ascension Parish. A tall, dark, and handsome drink of water, Nash is immediately attracted to the beautiful blond from California, gently wooing the woman with the fragile heart.
As Elliot and Nash find themselves swept into a deeply passionate romance, old enemies of the Aury's continue to harass the occupants of the house and Elliot finds herself caught up in a centuries-old feud. As she struggles to overcome the adversity and restore the grand old mansion to its former glory, she discovers secrets about the house that are deep and dark.
The ghost of Sophie MacGregor, the home's namesake, is seen walking the grounds on the full moon, looking for her murdered children. As the ghosts of a destroyed family search for each other, it's up to Elliot and Nash to bring peace to the house once known as Purgatory as they find a deep and eternal love for each other in the process.

This was a fast moving ,fabulous book!I loved it from beginning to end!The pace of the love story was a bit unreal,but if you can believe in ghosts,you can believe that.Elle moves her teenaged son and daughter to the Bayou to make a new start.The house they find when they get there is in need of much more TLC than expected.The police chief,feeling bad because he'd been the one to sell the house,starts helping fix things and falls for the new lady in town.With neighbors feuding and pirate booty to be found,there is much going on.
Wayne Page gives voice to all the characters and he does it well.

This hero has the perfect audio performer

Publisher's summary covers most of it, do not look for spoilers here. Louisiana bayou, derelict mansion, ghosts, homicidal crazies, good guys, and romance make for an entertaining read. Story is well thought out, but a little irregular in pace. Characters are well developed and generally all too believable.
That being said, the best part is the audio performer. With deep voice, applied drawl, cadence appropriate to events, ability to vocally differentiate characters as well as portray their emotions/reactions, he truly makes this an audio experience not to be missed.
Many thanks to AudioBook Blast for giving me the opportunity to be gifted with this book.
