Standalone novel featuring Liz Gavin’s characters you love from Club Desire short-stories: Clara Hervaux and Marcel Revault, and introducing Jeff Sommers.
Long before she became a household name in Hollywood, Clara Hervaux was a struggling young actress fresh out of college in Los Angeles. Fighting her way through the fiercely competitive show business, she learned to trust nobody, developed thick skin and guarded her heart against the inevitable hurt. Her natural beauty and talent landed her the roles that blazed her path to stardom, but she almost lost herself in the process. What saved her from doing so? An exclusive club in her hometown New Orleans, where powerful people indulge in their kinky fantasies.
Jeff Sommers, shrink by day, Master by night, had trained countless subs before Clara turned up at his door. Unable to resist their attraction and eager to show her the beauty of surrendering to one’s dark side, Jeff hesitated to take the next step. Too risky. He could lose the reputation he took years to build as well as his license. Faced with the possibility of losing Clara, he must make a choice.
One Halloween night brought a pleasant surprise to Marcel Revault. After over a century haunting his former home in the French Quarter, the dashing ghost had given up hope of breaking the witch’s spell that had bound him to the house. Finding out that Clara Hervaux was an empath, who could see and hear him as she did mortals, changed everything. Her psychic powers offered him much more than he had hoped for, including a temporary physical body. How could a ghost not fall for a mortal like Clara? How could a ghost win over a mortal like Clara?
Battling career demands, discovering her dark side and unleashing her supernatural powers kept Clara on her toes. The controlling Master with chiseled abs and chocolate skin made her toes curl. The charming ghost with a sharp mind and bright smile made her heart sing. Could the young actress choose between the two men? Or would she put professional goals ahead of personal needs?
