Pauline Durant’s neurasthenia has stolen her life for the last two years, and the greatest doctors in Europe have been unable to cure her. Professor Feversham is her father’s last hope for returning her to normalcy. But hers is the most challenging case he has yet seen, and his initial efforts seem fruitless.
“It must be a matter of stimulation. She must have more to break down her barriers and get through to her, allowing her release.”
Will the Professor’s latest invention—the violet ray device—provide the extra stimulation Pauline requires? Will it cure her dreadful neurasthenia and finally grant her the release she so desperately needs?

The owner of the biggest underground casino.
He's the kind of man who gets what he wants. He's got the best poker face in the world.
Now he wants me.
When things become too intense, I hit the brakes and make a run for it.
But one problem...he won't let me go.
Now I belong to Bosco Roth.
When I was a kid, I thought Ryan hung the moon. Most of the time he treated me like a pesky kid sister when I tried to tag along with them, or when I snuck down to his house to watch him working in his garage. At least it seemed as though he used to like me a little, anyway.
Now I needed a favor. My roommate had bailed, and I was desperate to find a place to stay for the rest of the summer so I didn’t have to move back home and listen to my dad and stepmother fighting like rabid wolverines for the next two months. Ryan was my last hope. I thought it would be the perfect chance to catch up and rebuild the relationship we’d had before he graduated from high school and more or less vanished from my life.
But although Ryan let me move into his apartment, now he’s avoiding me whenever possible and seems determined to give me the cold shoulder. I don’t get it. What had I done to make Ryan dislike me so much?
But what if the reason he’s keeping me at arm’s length isn’t because he doesn’t like me? What if it’s because he likes me too much?
