I had wanted to visit New Orleans, though, ever since I read Interview With the Vampire. I fell in love with the town from Anne Rice’s description, and her own passion for the Crescent City.

It was a hell of a long shot….

CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever—in Sinful, Louisiana.

The Road To You



The Road To You by Melissa Toppen


Life is full of choices– of chances– of moments.

Chances we regret not taking. Choices we wish we could change.

And then there are the moments that define us.

Kam was my choice…

The one who stole my heart instantly.

Kane was my chance…

The one who set me ablaze with just one look.

They were my moment…

Two brothers that both owned a part of me.

Two brothers that I loved in different ways for different reasons.

One brother shattered my heart.

The other put it back together.

Both changed me forever.

The Road to You is a standalone contemporary romance.
