Goodreads Summary:
An unconventional woman and a man shrouded in mystery walk a tightrope of desire as they race against a killer to find a machine that could change the world.

Former trapeze artist Amalie Vaughn moved to Burning Cove to reinvent herself, but things are not going well. After spending her entire inheritance on a mansion with the intention of turning it into a bed-and-breakfast, she learns too late that the villa is said to be cursed. When the first guest, Dr. Norman Pickwell, is murdered by his robot invention during a sold-out demonstration, rumors circulate that the curse is real.

In the chaotic aftermath of the spectacle, Amalie watches as a stranger from the audience disappears behind the curtain. When Matthias Jones reappears, he is slipping a gun into a concealed holster. It looks like the gossip that is swirling around him is true—Matthias evidently does have connections to the criminal underworld.

Matthias is on the trail of a groundbreaking prototype cipher machine. He suspects that Pickwell stole the device and planned to sell it. But now Pickwell is dead and the machine has vanished. When Matthias’s investigation leads him to Amalie’s front door, the attraction between them is intense, but she knows it is also dangerous. Amalie and Matthias must decide if they can trust each other and the passion that binds them, because time is running out.

The second book in this series came as a pleasant surprise and now I'm just as excited to see this third book! Love this historical mystery thriller series <3

What are you guys waiting on this week?


  1. This sounds super fun! I hardly step out of YA but I might check this one out, it sounds right up my alley (I love historical thrillers!) ♥

    1. Ahh that makes me so happy! It's definitely no YA but I super highly recommend this series for historical thriller fans <3

  2. That's new to me! I don't think I've heard of this series! How is that?! Lol! Hope you enjoy this installment once you get a hold of it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. It's adult and historical so I don't think the usual YA crowd would like it. I personally really enjoyed the first two books in this series ;)

  3. why is it that I never gave this series a second look until now? I'm kind of intrigued now. (did I read any spoilers by reading that synopsis? lol). I'll keep my eyes out on book 1 :)

    1. No spoilers! Except for the setting the stories are all unrelated with a tiny bit of crossover. Nothing major ;) Definitely let me know if you pick up this series!
