Genre: Romance with a paranormal twist
Do you believe in the power of dreams?
Way down south on Marigny Street in the heart of New Orleans, the land of Catholic intercessions, purgatory, and supernatural superstitions, young Evangeline Chenier dreams of a radiant boy who saves her from a storm. She takes the dream seriously – in her family, dreams are sometimes more than dreams. Sometimes they foretell the future. Sometimes they create it.
Years later, Eva is no longer the same wistful girl but a hardened woman who no longer believes in dreams. Losing faith in her gift, she becomes lost in a nightmare of emotion, mourning her son, separating from her husband, and stewing in a dead-end job. And then fate brings her an unlikely surprise: one of the most famous movie stars in the world, Gabriel Roberts.
Caught by something in his eyes, Eva agrees to show him the real Big Easy on his last night in New Orleans—an evening that turns into four dreamy days spent recapturing lost faith and discovering a love neither expected. Realizing Gabriel is the boy from her childhood dream, Eva must leave everything behind—her husband, her family, her history, and the beautiful city she calls home—and gamble it all for the dream that has saved her on MARIGNY STREET.
He hummed the melody of the song, pulling me even closer, and we moved in perfect rotation, just as those two stars would, revolving around one another.
I melted and inhaled. He smelled of sweet musk, and it was more intoxicating than the drinks. I was floating from the release his presence offered. No expectations, no past between the two of us, just the promise of a brand-new future. I hadn’t felt this way in such a long time—happy.
The warmth that radiated from deep within him ignited a small ember inside of me that had been lost. I didn’t know if it would burn or fizzle, or even how hot it could actually get, but this I did know: I was willing to find out.
