Blythe Townsend has had it with men – the ones who are up to their Mardi Gras beads in debt, booze and other women. If her heart is broken again, it’s going to take more than her best friend, Tricia, waving a beignet like smelling salts to bring Blythe back to life again.
She knows it will be a shame to hide for the rest of her life, turning her French Quarter apartment into her own personal nunnery. Enter Robert. She deems him as her last great hope; he’s solid, hardworking, attractive and has no time to be a party boy. Tricia deems him as the last great dope, a dullard who manages to make even New Orleans boring. But a little boredom never hurt a belle, and Blythe is just fine with it… lack of romance and all. That is until she spots a smoldering stranger who has the unnerving potential to ring any belle’s chimes. Her sister christens him Mr. Tall, Dark and Eye Candy; and while a beignet may bring Blythe back to life… a little eye candy might bring her libido back. But he’s just too sexy not to be dangerous. The choice seems a simple one if Blythe wants a nice, calm life. But nothing is as it seems when things heat up along the Mississippi Delta.
With her track record, an overbearing father and her dog’s utter disdain for Robert, Blythe’s life becomes a ball of confusion. She loves the take-charge 1940’s broads in old movies, but does she have an inner Bette Davis when the going gets tough?
From Memphis to New Orleans, these sassy women and sexy men get caught up in deceit, wild dancing in old blues bars and the romance of southern nights. So, come on down and join the party.
