Author Lily Reynolds had rarely traveled from her home state, but the opportunity to visit one of America’s “most haunted cities” was not something she could pass up. Despite anxiety issues that plagued her life, Lily and her friend Kylie set off on what they thought would be a two-week vacation, but turn into an adventure beyond her wildest dreams. Jared Claverack has lived in New Orleans from the time he was born. She was his to protect at all cost, it was a duty he did ferociously. He was content to walk the streets at night, until his blue eyes connected with a pale-skinned woman from the north, and the occupants of the City of the Dead began to creep from out from the shadows. Was he strong enough to save her, to keep her from the grasp of the evil he knew lurked in the darkness, or would she become just another one of the city’s haunting stories?
