Nine years ago, Christiane Lawrence surrendered her innocence to the mysterious young Daniel Moreau. Even after he left her without warning, the memory of his lovemaking haunted her. And as the child he left in her womb grew, she wondered who he'd really been—and why she felt an uneasy presence always by her side….
Daniel had been working for the devil—a madman with an evil obsession for Christiane. He'd left Christi to keep her safe, but he had only intensified the devil's desire. Now Daniel's redemption was at hand. But he'd have to convince Christi he loved her before midnight of Mardi Gras, for there was only a week to go before the devil exacted his bloody price.
