The Queen of Dauphine Street 

The Queen of Dauphine Street (NOLA Nights #2) by Thea De Salle 


When one of the world’s wildest socialites is paired with a handsome Texan, neither has any idea that their lives are about to change forever in this sexy, sultry romance in the NOLA Night series from New York Times bestselling author Thea de Salle.

Madeline Roussoux has it all: money, a dozen houses, a private jet, a cruise ship, even a tiger. Everyone knows her name. Her every move is watched, absorbed, adored, and abhorred by the public. She’s a dazzling spectacle on the society scene—a beautiful, flamboyant poster child for American privilege and Hollywood celebrity.

And she’s broken.

All the wealth in the world can’t make up for Maddy’s losses. Her father’s suicide and her mother’s ensuing breakdown left her orphaned as a teenager. She survived, but barely. From stints in rehab to a string of failed marriages, her dazzling smile hides deep scars. Finally, losing Sol DuMont, the one person she ever truly loved, has her wondering what is the point of being surrounded by people when you’re perpetually alone?

Enter Darren Sanders. He’s a beautiful Texas boy with a big heart and a bigger smile; the type of man women go crazy for. Literally. When Darren’s ex stalks him and then makes an attempt on his life, circumstances find him off to New Orleans with none other than Maddy Roussoux. He thought he knew everything there was to know about her, but there’s more to the woman whose image graces the covers of magazines worldwide, and Darren finds himself drawn into a world of excess he never imagined possible.


4.5 out of 5 stars

I was in the mood for some hot, filthy fun and this definitely did it for me! Besides the heat, it was so much more. It was a really fantastic story about two people coming together and I loved how it all played out.

Maddy is quite the character. She is bold as brass and not apologetic about who she is. I love that she's this boisterous character that's full of life. I mean, she owns a tiger for goodness sake! But she was so much more than the person that she seemed to show to the world. I enjoyed learning her background and watching her open up to Darren. I loved seeing the real her with her insecurities and flaws and how she just owned who she was. Darren, the hunk-a-licious Texan. Oh my! I liked him a lot. He's got some drama going on which brings the two of them together. He’s so in over his head with Maddy but is up for the challenge. I loved watching their relationship grow as he got to know her. Darren and Maddy had great chemistry with a light, fun vibe and I adored the bad jokes and silliness.

There is a whole heck of a lot of heat happening in this. Maddy is a sexual creature and I love how she owns that too. What she liked and is willing to do and try. Darren is right along for the ride. Fantastic passion and hot scenes were happening between these two for sure.

Great story, nice descriptions and build. It ended a bit abruptly for me but there was decent closure. I went in thinking it was going to be all naughty fun but I got so much more from it because these characters, even though over the top, are real in their own way and have vulnerabilities and I really just enjoyed them coming together. Also, I loved the humor, it was just really entertaining. It was full of bad dad jokes that were just hilariously endearing to me.

This was a winner for me. Crazy yes but pure fun, sweet and super freaking hot!
