We gave it a B

Anyone with a nose can tell you that pheromones are dangerous. But in this Louisiana-based novel, Scent of Darkness, Evangeline learns that lesson the hard way. When her grandmother dies, she leaves behind a perfume, created from Evangeline’s own scent, that makes this plain girl so irresistible that strangers bury their faces in her hair. Soon she’s torn between Gabriel, a quiet student, and Michael, a fiery artist. Berwin captures New Orleans’ mystical juju perfectly, but the love triangle borders on melodrama. Do these guys love her, or merely her DNA? Boys! You give them your heart, and they just want to sniff your blood. B
