When stripped of your soul, bleed out your heart.


Marly Michaels has it all, popularity, good looks, a promising future, and the perfect relationship or so it seems. In reality, that perfect relationship is a living nightmare. With a methodical stripping away of her confidence, her volatile ex-fiancé nearly succeeds in destroying her. She has tried to escape numerous times, but in the end, he always finds her.


In one last desperate attempt at freedom, Marly turns to her long lost childhood friend Carla for help. She and her eccentric friends welcome Marly into their circle with open arms. In the company of Goths, a segment of society shrouded in mystery and speculation, Marly finally finds sanctuary and Gray Forrester.


Gray is the mesmerizing singer for the local band, These Bones. He is a man of many talents, including the ability to heal a wounded spirit. Inexplicably drawn to the sadness in Marly’s eyes, he is compelled to help restore her soul. To do so, he must remain emotionally detached. Not an easy task for the gregarious Goth.

You will meet struggling artist and bass player Falquen Forrester, his fraternal twin the gregarious singer Gray Forrester, the impossibly handsome lead guitar player Darien River, and last but definitely not least the soft-spoken drummer Jesse Rain.

What if you had one last chance to say hello?


Imagine, for weeks you’ve been exchanging secret glances with a handsome, mysterious stranger on the subway. He’s so very different from you, in every way. Everything about him screams danger in that, oh, so sexy manner. Chances are your paths would never meet. Yet, no matter how your work day went, you could always count on him being on the very same train, in the very same seat across from you, making you feel like the most desired woman in the world.


What would you do if suddenly all that was about to change? What if a dramatic switch in your daily commute would alter your route in such a way you might never see each other again? Would you simply let it happen? Would you let all those late night fantasies go to waste or would you be brave enough to do something about it?


Jesse Rain, the drummer for the Toronto-based Goth band, These Bones, and Beverly Sparrow, legal secretary, couldn’t be more different, yet their attraction to each other is undeniable. Casting seductive glances at each other is their only form of communication. That’s good enough for Beverly because anything more would be too scary to contemplate. But when she’s faced with the prospect of never seeing him again, Beverly forces her fears aside and does the unimaginable. She asks him out on a date!
