The Keepers of the Faubourg-Marigny is a paranormal romance set in a neighborhood of New Orleans just outside the French Quarter. When Alene decides to spend her summer break in New Orleans working at a busy bar to overcome her broken heart, she never expects to meet a handsome, charming gentleman like Perrin Boudreaux. Everything about Perrin is a mystery, from his old-fashioned clothes to the priceless coins he leaves as tip at the bar, but Alene’s never fallen in love like this before. Even though the further she digs into Perrin’s past, the more terrified she becomes, she can’t help but feel an undeniable connection to him and want to know more. Evidence suggests that Perrin was a Civil War soldier who tried to stow away aboard a pirate ship that sank over a century ago, and neighborhood legend has it that souls lost in that historic shipwreck roam the Faubourg-Marigny District in search of young maidens to lure down to their watery graves. Could it be possible that Perrin’s a supernatural being, or is Alene losing her mind?
In Part 2 of The Keepers of Faubourg-Marigny series, Alene researches shipwrecks in the Bywater neighborhood in the hope of finding out more about the coins that Perrin has given her. Her professor has provided her with reason to believe that the coins may have been excavated from a sunken ship, and he tells her they’re valuable enough to put her through college… and pay for luxuries she can barely imagine. But Alene’s not interested in selling the coins for a small fortune just yet; she has to find out Perrin’s real identity and what his connection to her is. She’s beginning to remember why her family moved away from the Faubourg-Marigny District when she was a child, and has a terrifying feeling that it had everything to do with her childhood imaginary friend named Perrin. When Alene is confronted by the shopkeeper of a voodoo store in the French Quarter, she becomes convinced that something is happening to her, and it’s related to Perrin. Even though she’s acutely aware of danger, she suspects he has some kind of a hold on her that she can’t resist.
