Behind Blue Eyes

Hopeless romantic Martin LaRocca has eyes for only one man and faith their paths will continue to meet. He can’t help himself. His masked Adonis, literally a distinguished member of the Knights of Fidelity, arranged the romantic interlude at the masquerade ball. How else would Marty, amongst all those debutantes, ever have received a call-out card if not for some hefty string-pulling. But then again, this isn’t his grandmother’s Mardi Gras Ball now, is it?

Daniel Stroemeyer isn’t looking forward to Mardi Gras’ end, when all the parades and floats and balls and people will vanish, and focus on his life as heir to his uncle’s New Orleans empire will return. Never in his forty-six years did he imagine doing anything other than taking over the family business—until he fell for the son of his uncle’s number one rival. Never in Daniel’s cold-hearted past did he imagine a day he’d consider quitting work for his uncle and his murderous ventures. Never in his wildest dreams did he envision having his blue-eyed cake and eating it, too. But that’s exactly what this decked-in-green arrival to the Annual Knights of Fidelity Ball is to Daniel…faith.

Faith that a man can turn his life around, find redemption, if only in the arms of the man he loves…
