Tuesday Ebook Spotlight: Mardi Gras stories

Happy Mardi Gras everyone. Here’s a book by New Orleans native Colleen Mooney to get you in the spirit and "Rescued by a Kiss" is only $1.99 to download! Mooney is a parade aficionado, growing up in a city where parades are as common as poboys. According to her bio, Mooney moved around working for ATT but returned home every year for the world’s largest free party, Mardi Gras.

Here’s the book description, book one in the New Orleans Go Cup Chronicles:

Brandy Alexander’s the real deal — yes, that’s her real name and she’s not even a stripper, although her best friend Julia is. Brandy still lives with her parents in the Irish Channel and she’s sort of semi kind of engaged to the boy next door. Then a suave Svengali in one of the gentlemen’s walking clubs mesmerizes her into a big fat Mardi Gras smooch. “The kiss was long, slow, hot—unlike any kiss I’d ever had in my life.” 

She decides to meet Mr. Good Kiss after the parade, but — horrors — arrives just in time to see him shot. Although fortunately not shot dead. Before he passes out, he pulls her close and whispers, “Save Isabella.” And then, in case you aren't yet in the carnival spirit, the fun begins. 

The Svengali kisser, (aka Mr. Possibly Right), has enemies, of course, and, oh, by the way, he and Brandy get kidnapped, but the real adventure here is swanning around town with Brandy and her crazy krewe—much of it canine and seriously cute.
