The most expensive woman in Galveston’s infamous red light district wants to meet you. And now there’s yet another way in which you can get acquainted with Aimée Bonnard – a talented courtesan hiding a dark secret. You can now listen to the audiobook version of the novel, brilliantly narrated by Stacey Lind. If you download the audiobook, please make sure to let me know. I get very excited about readers joining me on this adventure!
Here’s what the story is about:
Fleeing New Orleans after a deadly night in which a rival prostitute lost her life, Aimée Bonnard reinvents herself as the most expensive woman in Galveston. But her secrets haunt her, as do the stirrings of her own heart, defying the discipline she’s imposed on herself throughout her career. Can a well paid courtesan afford to fall in love? Perfect for fans of Edith Wharton, this novel will seduce you.
Bonus feature: There are English Pointers in this story. Also horses, art, candy, and beautiful Island scenery. Not to mention a surprising and satisfying tale of self-discovery and self-actualization.
I’ve posted a few teasers on TikTok if you’re curious. The music is something I added to stimulate the algorithm (though I frankly don’t understand how it works, but oh well…). The actual audiobook is free of such distractions. It’s the voice acting that will take you into the story and keep you hooked!
