Pre-Order Now!

In New Orleans, a world where souls walk free and dreams become portals to the past, an ancient curse threatens one woman’s future.


Lucy Aimes can’t remember a time when she didn’t have terrible dreams of drowning and death. But when those nightmares send her running from her old life in Chicago, she ends up in the one place she swore she’d never go—the very plantation that has haunted her sleep for so long.


Accepting the job at Le Ciel Doux might have been an act of desperation, but when Lucy meets Silas LaRoux, the head of the Foundation that owns the estate, she begins to wonder if maybe she can start over. With his easy confidence, quiet charm, and devastating good looks, Silas is too tempting to resist—even if he is her boss. 


But in New Orleans, her nightmares transform into vivid visions of the past that feature someone from the very real present. As it becomes clear that the events she’s dreaming about really did happen more than a century ago, a killer strikes. Torn between a past love and a future with Silas, she’ll have to unravel the mystery of her dreams before they destroy her.
