New Orleans Vampires: History and Legend (Haunted America) by Marita Woywod Crandle
Publisher: The History Press
New Orleans has a reputation as a home for creatures of the night. Popular books, movies and television shows have cemented the city's connection to vampires in public imagination. In the early days of Louisiana's colonization, rumors swirled about the fate of the Casket Girls, a group of mysterious maidens traveling to the New World from France with peculiar casket-shaped boxes. A charismatic man who moved to the French Quarter in the early 1900s eerily resembled a European aristocrat of one hundred years prior bearing the same name. A pair of brothers terrorized the town with their desire to feed on living human blood during the Great Depression. Marita Woywod Crandle investigates the origins of these legends so intricately woven through New Orleans's rich history.

So, she arranges for Grace to disappear, ordering she be taken to a slave auction in another part of the world—never to be heard from again. When her abductor takes pity on her and asks his estranged brother to give her a job, Grace is offered the position of chatelaine at Hightower House, working for the handsome, wealthy, and enigmatic Gabriel Ross, who runs a salon frequented by influential male patrons. There’s only one catch to her new position. Don’t enter the salon during its operating hours. Simple enough. But, as Grace’s chemistry with her new boss grows, she soon learns there’s more to Gabriel Ross and his business than what lies on the surface. And there’s a reason the salon is only open at night.
