Danny Rothstein, a handsome young casino owner, leaves his home in Las Vegas for the noir splendor of 1950s’ New Orleans. Danny, a product of the button-down fifties, assumes he knows everything about women. Little does he know that he will soon enter a world of strip bars and clandestine sex clubs. His life comes apart when he meets Yvette Delacroix, a nineteen-year-old cigarette girl who has sampled life on the wild side. After a scorching encounter in a sex club, the two embark on a torrid romance that challenges everything Danny believes about female sexuality and love. At the end of Danny’s passionate journey, he learns bad girls can be very good indeed.
The New Orleans Hothouse is an explicit glimpse at the carnal underworld of New Orleans told in the first person from a male point of view. The clash between a powerful protagonist and liberated heroine are some of the provocative elements in this erotic romance set in the New Orleans and the fictional universe of the Rue de St. Marc.
About the Author
I’m Lee Rene, the jazz-loving, romance-writing alter ego of Francesca Miller. Under the nom de plume, Lee Rene, I write erotic romances and New Adult novels. I had the good fortune of being born in one the most diverse cities in the world, sun-kissed Los Angeles. The City of the Angels is more than just palm trees, toned bodies and beaches, it’s a fusion of people, languages and cultures.
In my past literary life, I worked a lifestyle writer for magazines in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Vancouver as well as entertainment journalist and movie reviewer in print, on-line, and on radio in the Los Angeles area. I’m a student of American history and my works are usually set in the past. When I’m not writing away, I spend my time watching movies from the golden era on TCM, delving into history, enjoying classical music and jazz and reading gothic literature.
My first published novel is an erotic romance written under my nom de plume, Lee Rene. My interest in writing erotic romance started percolating when I read Sylvia Day’s provocative novel, Bared to You. Although I’ve attempted to write romance novels in the past, I found my voice in the world of erotic literature. The New Orleans Hothouse is the first of many stories. It’s my sincere wish that lovers of dark romances join me on my journey
