A HAUNTING DESIRE
By: Julie Mulhern
Publisher: Entangled
Release Date: July 28th, 2015

New Orleans, 1902 

A killer walks the streets of New Orleans, eviscerating men and leaving them in the streets, and for madam Trula Boudreaux, it's bad for business. Trula needs help but she's not prepared for Zeke Barnes, the charming would-be savior who darkens her doorway-or the yearning he awakens. For while Trula knows well the delights of lust, she avoids love at all costs... 

Investigating the killer was one thing, but Zeke can't help but be enchanted by the gorgeous mystery woman who runs an exclusive brothel. Caught between his duty to protect the city and his clear-as-day desire for Trula, Zeke sets about capturing Trula's heart-or at least a place in her bed. But with every moment Trula resists, Zeke falls into greater danger. 

For his investigation into the haunted city and madam doesn't just risk his heart but both their lives.





Julie Mulhern is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean--and she's got an active imagination. Truth is--she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.
Her first romance was a finalist in the 2014 Golden Heart® contest. That book, A Haunting Desire, released July 28, 2015.
Julie also writes mysteries. The Deep End (available now) is her first mystery and is the winner of The Sheila Award. Look for book two, Guaranteed to Bleed, October 13, 2015. http://www.juliemulhern.com/









Murder, a mysterious stranger, and the macabre beauty of New Orleans tradition made A HAUNTING DESIRE delightfully dark and erotic. It's hard to resist the lure of a such a timeless, romantic tale.

Beautifully broken characters both colorful and strange. Haunted by the past, unable to dream.

Trula immediately won my heart and admiration. She was a woman who took the worst of circumstances and made life the best she could, for not just herself, but those that surrounded her. She was smart, strong, tough but compassionate. A woman ahead of her time. She'd suffered a lot of heartache and kept everyone at arm's length. Never allowing anyone into her bed or her heart. She had a wonderful wit and a fierce will.

Zeke... a real man of mystery. The original 'Man In Black'. While he immersed himself in Storyville's current crime wave, he weaved his way into a very stubborn Trula's business and heart. With his own troubled history, he throws himself into the world of the unexplained and unknown. And nearly falls at Trula's feet.

Together, they vow to solve the disturbing and bizarre murders plaguing the small town and threatening its' livelihood. If they can just ignore the pull they feel in each other's presence... And the persistent whispers of pesky ghosts.

If you adore the allure of New Orleans and it's dark magical history, this one's for you.
Beautifully written with lush and vivid  details, A HAUNTING DESIRE will seduce you and keep you on the edge of your seat.
