Everyone wears a mask. But the deadliest secrets hide in plain sight.
Marie St. Jean’s acting talent comes with a price. When she reluctantly steps into a role abandoned by the leading lady, she encounters a ghostly spirit who promises to fix her affliction.
Violinist Johann Bledsoe thought he’s left disgrace and his gambling debt behind in England, but a murder makes him fear he’s been exposed. Though his heart resonates for the ravishing Marie, he knows that once the siege is over, he’ll have to keep running.
Under the baleful eye of steam-powered ravens, more murders drive Marie and Johann closer to the truth of what lurks below the stage and what dangers hang over their heads. Their only hope could lie in exposing their darkest secrets—and surrendering to the Eros Element in a way that could push them irretrievably close to madness.
