Thrilling and emotionally-chargedUnder the Lights is book one in the suspenseful Bright Lights Duet.

Under the Lights takes you on the daunting and courageous journey of a young woman fighting for not only herself, but for another helpless girl, to overcome and escape a world filled with danger, exploitation, and peril. But as time ticks by, her hopes of freedom begin to diminish. But even in the darkest of times, a light can be found. And her light comes from only one man. But is he enough to save her from a world of corruption and terror?

Reading this book was an eye-opening experience for me. The realness the storyline projects is one that is rarely displayed in books. It touches controversial topics within the story, not only with the subject matter but with the actions and dialogue of the entire cast of characters. This book isn’t for all readers. I, myself, found it hard at times to continue reading because of the raw, vile, and malicious behavior exhibited. But it was the underlying emotional bonds that really showcased the true magnificence of the book. The experiences and unthinkable situations endured brought forth an unwavering compassion that will leave you connected to the characters and to the final outcome that’s still unknown.

Under the Lights is a dark and intensely deep romance that captures the essence of an even darker and terrifying world hidden in the shadows. Book two is sure to bring all the lingering questions and unresolved situations to a conclusion. And I, for one, cannot wait to find out what happens next!

A thrilling, white-hot second-chance romance duet from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise… 

Heroes don’t last long around here…

Fall in love with the sexiest girl in New Orleans?

Prepare to die for her?

Larissa is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.
She’s the rising star of the Pussycat Angels, the hottest burlesque show in the French Quarter.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw her.
The curve of her breast outlined by sparkling rhinestones.
Slim hips wrapped in black fishnets.
Long, dark hair…

She’s the Dark Angel who stole my heart.
Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.

Cat eyes and blood red lips.
Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.
I couldn’t keep my hands off her…

But her fame had a dark side,
A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.

I would do anything to save her…
He would do anything to see me dead.
