Bayou Born

“Edwards [creates] amazing fantasy worlds that the reader becomes completely engrossed in.” Goodreads

Her beginning may be our end . . .


Deep in the humid Mississippi bayou, a half-wild child is dragged from the murky waters. She has no memories, no family and is covered in mysterious markings. Adopted by the policeman who rescued her, Luce Boudreau follows him onto the force, determined to prove herself in the eyes of those who are still suspicious.
However, there’s more of a battle ahead than Luce could possibly imagine. She may be an orphan without a past, but no one – including Luce herself – could ever be prepared for the truth of her dark, powerful destiny . .

The author spins an action-packed story of intrigue and betrayal, with an endearing romance at it's heart. I adore a good marriage of convenience tale that ultimately turns into much more - and this one is exceptional.

Edwards [creates] amazing fantasy worlds that the reader becomes completely engrossed in.
Goodreads
Edwards is a strong voice in the Adult Paranormal Romance genre.
Goodreads
"One aspect of her writing I enjoy is her ability to take the mundane and with a few changes, turn it into something unique and unexpected. She builds dynamic character bases, using common mythology but takes it one step further using previously unseen species or imbibing currently known species with skills and know how that offers readers something new in the paranormal world.

RT Book Reviews
Hailey has taken several elements of paranormal storytelling and created a whole new dimension for her characters to thrive in their muddied, twisted merriment. Some things aren't as they seem, ensnaring readers to follow along.
