Book Description

New York Times and multiple USA Today Best Selling author Nina Bruhns presents for your reading pleasure... Book 1 in her New Orleans Trilogy, a sexy contemporary romantic suspense novel with a hot Southern hero to fall in love with!


Kit Colfax is a sassy insurance investigator who is out to catch herself a suave Southern jewel thief...any way she can. Her career depends on it. But she’s in for the surprise of her life when her sting operation instead mistakenly snares handsome chief of police Simon “Beau” Beaulieux.

Lord have mercy, the man's deep, sexy voice evokes fantasies of smooth satin sheets on hot afternoons, dripping with the sweet scent of honeysuckle and the taste of icy mint juleps. Kit does her best to resist the tempting Louisiana aristocrat. But a series of disasters—certainly not his heated kisses!—have her chasing Beau from Las Vegas to San Diego to the bayous of his stately antebellum plantation. There, wrapped in the embrace of sultry Southern nights, she finds herself hopelessly caught in the sensual web of his passion. But will the demands of their jobs and the conflicting bonds of old family loyalties spell disaster for the future of their blossoming love?

This book was the winner of the:
Daphne du Maurier Award for Best Mystery/Suspense Novel of 2000
National Readers’ Choice Award for Best Category Romance of 2000
Golden Chalice Grand Prize for 2000
Golden Heart Award

A sexy contemporary romantic suspense mainly set on the suave, aristocratic chief of police's antebellum plantation. The page-turning adventure starts with a hot poker game in Las Vegas, moves to the luxury marinas of San Diego, and ends in bayou country, Louisiana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nina Bruhns: CATCH ME IF YOU CAN January 29, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story is, as with all Nina Bruhns's books, essentially simple. This writer does not need exotic locales, unusual circumstances, unlikely coincidences, famous brand-names and all that, to sustain our interest. She is far too good a writer for that.
Here, the story is that of an insurance investigator (Katherine (Kit) Colfax), who plans a sting to catch a man (Remi Beaulieux) whom she believes to be guilty of jewellery robberies. When she succeeds in interesting him in a no-dealer, invitation-only backroom game in a Las Vegas hotel (c'm on! Vegas isn't exotic!) - and loses a sapphire necklace in the process, to make the sting possible - it turns out that the man to whom she lost the necklace was not Remi, but his look-fairly-alike cousin, Simon ("Beau") Beaulieux, who is Chief of Police in his home-town of Verdigris, LA. It is a great pleasure meeting the Louisiana aristocrat; Ms. Bruhns's French is impeccable, and she has hit upon a most charming manner to translate the French for us without appearing to do so. A man such as Beau is obviously fluently bilingual, therefore it is entirely natural for him to think in a mixture of the French of his ancestors, and English. Ah, Nina Bruhns - you're one helluva writer!
It is a joy to watch Kit and Beau get together, and it is a measure of this gifted writer's art that she sweeps us, with effortless grace, into scenes of such emotional depth that it is impossible not to feel a frisson or two. In the first great love-scene, Ms. Bruhns keeps this going, with deceptive ease, for some ten pages!
Using seemingly simple language, never overwriting, she succeeds in building an emotional tension that is tangible, and one feels that perhaps one has trespassed upon an intensely private moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Southern Sizzle March 20, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed everything about this book. From the attractive cover and title to the very last page. I don't read every SIM but after reading the reviews for this book, I decided to buy it. I'm sure glad I did. The characters were well developed, the love scenes between Beau and Kit are HOT and their teasing sexual banter is erotic and refreshing. Add to that a truly good story, a beautiful Southern plantation and an old Civil War family legend. Don't miss this one. I look forward to more books from Ms. Bruhns and hope she will consider writing cousin Remi's story soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Catch Me If You Can February 8, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This debut book by Nina Bruhns is not a book to be missed. This book had so many sizzling scenes I thought it would catch fire.
Kit Colfax works for an insurance company. She almost always gets her man even if she does have some risque ways of going about it. Her boss has given her one more chance to redeem herself or she's to be shown the door. Now she's on the trail of a jewel thief. She's tracked him down to Las Vegas and has only one more chance to nab him. She has jewels and a sexy expensive dress.
Simon "Beau" Beaulieux is in Las Vegas too. He's there to track down his elusive black sheep cousin Remi. Remi, it seems, has made off with the family jewels. Beau has to catch him before his dying grandmother finds out about the theft.
Now, picture, if you will, Kit and Beau meeting over a poker table. Kit mistakenly thinks that Beau is the jewel thief she's after. They are down to just Beau and Kit at the table and Kit makes a reckless bet. She bets her expensive dress. Whoops, she loses!
Before it's all said and done, Kit has followed Beau down to San Deigo looking for Remi. She's shot in the arm and now Beau has decided that he has to protect her. Then there's the story of the legend......
This was one of the hottest, sexiest books I've ever read. The sparks between Kit and Beau fairly burn holes in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading many more books from Nina.

By suupee
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Silhouette Intimate Moments is the best in series romance, & now they have another "star" to add to their stable of authors who produce the best in this sub-genre. I like the fact that a series romance is pushing the edge of the newest trend towards erotica. Reading pre-fab romances is boring. Nina Bruhns, a.k.a., Nikita Black, doesn't do boring.
This book is a page turner. Well written, plotted, & jazzed with imagination by an author who shows outstanding ability telling fun stories. Too bad we have to wait so long before SIM puts out her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hot Cajun Lovin" June 24, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have never been a big fan of romance novels and can't honestly say what drew me to this book other than hoping for a good book to read a took a chance. Well can you say "One of the best choices I've ever made!". Could not put it down it was fire from the very beginning, my goodness if only a man could love me like Beau Beaulieux loves Kit Colfax! Nina Bruhns is the ultimate in romance storytelling, just keeps you on the edge every single page turn wanting more. If you're a huge lover of the south and Louisiana in particular than you'll absolutely love her references to bayou country and add to that Beau's southern drawl and sometimes french declarations of love for Kit then you'll love this book. Can't wait to read the next one!!!
