5.0 out of 5 stars Vengeance, redemption and lust...Cajun style August 31, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All her life Grace has been the quiet, responsible twin, while Muse was the daring one. That fact only served to make the bond between them closer than most. When Muse goes missing, Grace takes a leave of absence from her counseling job and comes to New Orleans. She decides to assume her sister's identity in a desperate bid to uncover the truth. At first nothing seems to work until one hot night when she realizes someone is watching her from the balcony across from her own...

New Orleans Police Detective Auri "Creole" Levalois is a renegade with one goal on his mind: find the people responsible for his foster brother Luke's murder. When his investigation leads him to a small time hood named Gary Fox, Creole decides to set up surveillance on Fox's girlfriend. According to his files, the sultry Muse Summerville dresses like a femme fatale and has a penchant for dangerous men. However, the woman Creole is spying on doesn't even like to wear sexy lingerie and jumps whenever he's near. Something isn't right and Creole is determined to get to the bottom of it, even if he has to jump the four feet between their respective balconies.

Like the city the story takes place in, SWEET REVENGE is a steamy, passionate tale of vengeance, redemption and love -- with a nice big serving of good, old-fashioned lust. While Grace is a beautiful and strong heroine, it is Creole who will take the reader's breath away. Tortured by his childhood memories and haunted by the death of his brother, Creole is determined to be alone. He can't even bear the touch of another person, which makes for some interesting scenes in this story. Grace's acceptance of his dark side slowly erodes the demons plaguing Creole, but will it be enough?

5.0 out of 5 stars ~sighs~ Spectacular! July 28, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hard, SEXY, complicated Detective "Creole" Auri Levalois thought no woman would ever earn his trust until he met Psychologist Grace Summerville. A woman whom he must aid in her search for her missing sister, and whom must help him get his "sweet revenge." Throughout their search, the two become entanlged in a passionate, sensual love like never before. This love "cured" Creole of his "problem" and lowered his defences (just a bit) around Grace.

Grace is compassionate, loving, and understanding. Creole is strong, (oh sooo sexy) caring, and loyal. Together these two make a spectacular, emotionally and sensually charged couple, in a devastatingly romantic story that should NOT be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT SPIN-OFF TO CATCH ME IF YOU CAN! June 4, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Grace Summerville is a counselor for troubled teens and her sister Muse seems to be a great free for-all. Life style and men.
And now she is missing [pay attention to this aspect].
Auri "Creole" Levalois is on the private prowl trying to find Muse's last boy friend, he is sure Muse will lead him to the guy. He feels an unwanted, instant attraction as he watches her from across their respective balconies on a hot, dark night.
He was salivating as he watched her run that darn ice cube where he would love to run his tongue.
Revenge, that was what Creole was after for the torture and murder of his foster brother, Luke.
My question is, he couldn't have been too good a detective is she knows he is following her or did he do it deliberately?
Why the devil did she dress to intice if she wouldn't put out. I guess the hot kiss told it all. Ah well, it was only a matter of time.
Their trip around Bourbon Street was a bit hilarious and then the FBI has to stop their fun. But danger was lurking near by.
The characters were great and their problems made the story even better - there was the thrill of the chase - the build up to the eventual seduction [as usual] and a great twist to Muse being in the protection of FBI Special agent Remi Beaulieux [cousin of Simon Beaulieux from "Catch Me If You Can"].
It's not fair Ms. Bruhns -- who did Muse marry? Was it Remi? Or did she meet someone else? For all of his secretiveness, Remi deserves a book of his own. He should go back and see Simon and his family.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED --M Loved that tatoo!

First Thought when Finished: It has been to long since I have been to NOLA!

What I Loved: Nina Bruhns did a fantastic job of getting you into that Louisiana mood through the setting, dialogue, and fantastic characters. I was pretty much sucked into the richness of the area and it was perfect for a romantic suspense novel. I loved Nina's usage of Cajun sayings and just about died at Creole's name: Auri!

What I Liked: The romance between Creole and Grace was a nice balance of sweet and spicy. You really cared about them getting together and wanted Grace to heal the hurt from Creole's past. The suspense story was a fantastic way to bring these two together! Plus, kudos for not dragging out the "mistaken" twin plot. I really enjoyed that they were getting to know each other for who they really were!

Things that made me go hmmm: Nothing really but I started reading the epilogue and decided to wait until I read book 3 since it talks about Muse and Remi!

Final Thought: This was a fantastic read that I am glad I picked up. It was also another free read that lead me to buy more in the series so it did it's job LOL
