Rouge By Leigh Talbert Moore
Release Date: Late November 2012
(Mature YA/light historical/theater romance)
Summary from Goodreads:
Trapped in the underground theater world of 1890s New Orleans, Hale Ferrer has only one goal: escape. But not without Teeny, the orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect.
Freddie Lovel, Hale's wealthy Parisian suitor, seems to be the easy solution. If only his touch could arouse her interest like Beau's, the penniless stagehand who captures her heart.
Denying her fears, Hale is poised to choose love until an evil lurking in their cabaret-home launches a chain of events that could cost her everything.
Naj's Comment: I loved the book! It was a lot different than TTAF and more for the mature Young Adults. It was beautiful to see Leigh experimenting with other genres and styles.
