Illusionist Midas Coghlin continues to hunt the next challenge, something he’s done from the time he took off at a run on his one-year-old feet. A daredevil in his youth, a gifted manipulator, and a master of puzzles as an adult, he relishes upping the ante, something that’s become increasingly difficult to accomplish. So naturally, he’s turning his focus to getting a rise out of the single most unflappable professional in showbiz, Ashling Milligan.
When Ashling and Midas discover the ultimate puzzle woven into the tapestries of the generations that came before them, they dive headlong into the ultimate quest with the highest stakes. Their lives. With one foot in their comfortable pasts and the other in the life their ancestries call on them to live, they dally in their mutual attraction, each denying the powerful connection growing between them. That is, until the villain lying-in-wait forces them to bring that connection to light and test how it stands in the most epic of battles.
About the author
USA Today Bestselling author Casey Hagen pens her snarky, passionate stories from the salty air of Kennebunk, Maine. She’s a born and raised Vermont native, a New England girl to the core, with Ben & Jerry’s in her heart and real Vermont maple syrup pumping through her veins.
She’s the proud mother of three girls and a new, first-time grandma with an insatiable addiction to Fall Out Boy, and a new, rather concerning obsession with tattoos and piercings. Can you say “cool grandma?”
The inked and pierced grandma spends her time tucked away in her office, coated in cat hair, alternating between tearing her hair out trying to find the perfect words and being one step ahead of her three scheming fur babies she is positive are plotting her demise with every swirl around her ankles at the top of her office stairs.
She loves writing stories about real people, with complicated histories, relatable everyday problems, and giving them the hard-won happily-ever-afters they deserve.
And she thanks every last one of you who picks up one of her stories.
Casey is done talking about herself in the third person.
