From Leigh: A cool fall breeze and a love of musical theater inspired me to write this dark tale of two orphans struggling to survive a dangerous situation.
Rouge is a love story, a story of loyalty, and a lush trip back to old New Orleans. Even better, it’s only 99 cents for the holiday! (link)
Trapped in the underground theater world of 1890s New Orleans, Hale Ferrer has only one goal: escape. But not without Teeny, the orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect.
Freddie Lovel, Hale’s wealthy Parisian suitor, seems to be the easy solution. If only his touch could arouse her interest like Beau’s, the penniless stagehand who captures her heart.
Denying her fears, Hale is poised to choose love until an evil lurking in their cabaret-home launches a chain of events that could cost her everything.
With his thumb, Beau wiped my tear away then without a word, he leaned forward and kissed me gently. I reached forward to catch the front of his shirt, the fabric rough against my fingertips.
He lifted his head and looked into my eyes. “I hate to see you sad,” he whispered.
“There’s not much to do about it.” I tried to laugh, but it wasn’t convincing.
“I never expected to meet someone like you. And then when I did, I never dreamed you’d consider me worth your time.”
“I shouldn’t consider you,” I said, longing pulsing through me with every heartbeat. “But I guess I can’t help it.”
