Everyone wears a mask. But the deadliest secrets hide in plain sight.


Marie St. Jean’s supreme acting talent comes with a price: Every spellbinding performance extracts a piece of her soul. When she reluctantly steps into a role abandoned by another leading lady, she encounters the ghostly spirit that caused the other woman to flee in terror. And who promises to fix Marie’s affliction – for a price.


Marie’s other problem – her attraction to alluring violinist, Johann Bledsoe, a temptation she dares not explore. However, with the Prussians surrounding Paris, she is well and truly trapped.


Johann left disgrace and his gambling debt behind in England, but a murder outside the Théâtre Bohème makes him fear he’s been exposed. He’d love nothing more than to claim Marie as his own, but after the siege is over, his past will catch up to him again.


Under the baleful eye of steam-powered ravens, more murders drive Marie and Johann closer to the truth of what really 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 the edge of madness.


Clockwork Phantom is the second book in the Aether Psychics, a thrilling steampunk series with puzzling mysteries and hints of magic. If you like historical mysteries with a scientific – or is it supernatural? – twist, then you'll love Cecilia Dominic's Aether Psychics series.


Note: Clockwork Phantom can be read on its own or as part of the Aether Psychics series. It was originally titled Light Fantastique.

Forgetting her is impossible. Remembering him could kill her.


Left with partial amnesia after a steamcart accident, Claire McPhee tried lengthy treatment for the mental and emotional trauma. Now armed with her own training and medical degree, she helps others with combat-related neuroses hoping, she’ll someday—somehow—fill in her own blanks. Particularly the elusive memory of a man she once loved.


Something about the new medical chief triggers her painful, hypnosis-induced blocks, but he keeps pushing her away before she can shove through the barriers to determine why.


Chadwick Radcliffe has faced many challenges since assuming the position of medical chief at Fort Daniels, but facing his former love—and the knowledge that her memory of him could be deadly—pains him the most. While he’s had some preliminary success using the Eros Element, he’s all too aware its unintended effects could harm as much as heal.


With the Union on the cusp of caving in to the Confederacy’s demands, time becomes a precious commodity. Ghosts rise. The Element takes on a new, unpredictable aspect. And resurrected love could give Claire and Chadwick unexpected strength—if they have the courage to break the chains welded around them to seize it.


Aether Spirit is the third book in the Aether Psychics, a thrilling steampunk series with puzzling mysteries and elements of romance, and can be read as a standalone novel. If you like historical mysteries, sweet romance, and clever heroines, then you'll love Cecilia Dominic's Aether Psychics series.

In present-day Iraq, John Hart discovers the message hidden in his ancestor's testament. Accompanied only by his beautiful Kurdish translator, Hart sets out to find the Copper Scroll.

John Hart must travel in his forefather's footsteps to Iran and the hollow mountain known as Solomon's Prison... but will he share the Templar's fate?

She is determined to track down the man known as the Captain: a war criminal, and her father.

The rooftop reception on the skyscraper in
lower Manhattan is an elegant affair right up until the moment the murders
occur. With the lives of sixty-three of his friends and business associates
snuffed out in one horrifying blink of an eye, the wealthy and enigmatic
Jonathan Strickland boards a dangerous roller coaster ride of a lifetime in
this clever, nail biting who-done-it.



Following the nebulous clues left behind at
the scene of the crime, Strickland finds himself kidnapped and taken to a
clandestine meeting in the middle of the Syrian dessert beneath the ancient
ruins of one of the oldest civilizations known to man. The lines between good
and evil blur as the suspect list narrows. Strickland races against time to
find the invisible killers who have even more carnage in mind; they call their
sinister plan the Joshua Effect.



Strickland also struggles with the essence of
a life thrown into question by the gnawing epiphany that he is losing the one
thing which actually gives his existence meaning. All of his fantastic
achievements pale when compared with the desire to possess the love of the one
woman who can understand him - but who can never be with the man he is.



As the clock ticks relentlessly forward to a
catastrophe of truly Biblical proportions, the hunt for those responsible nears
its climax. From a brazen gun battle among the rich and famous in the exotic
streets of glamorous Miami Beach to the discovery of the secretive Catskills
hideaway of a reclusive scientist in upstate New York, the thrilling ride never
lets up.



All the while the personal war inside
Strickland rages on. Who is he? More importantly, who will he end up becoming?
For a man who thought he had everything, why does he suddenly find his life so
empty?



For Jonathan, the revelation that a life with
nothing in it worth dying for isn't much worth living shakes the very core of
his being. Then why does it feel so right? The Joshua Effect is a taut,
suspense filled page turner with a stunner around every corner.
