Lana Chanteuse seduces her audience every night at Mitch’s bar. But she’s an ice queen. She sings two sets and leaves the audience panting for more. The men all want her and the women want to be her.
Jon Mitchell, bar owner, listens to Lana sing and hears the lonely behind the love songs. Lana never speaks but two words to Jon, as all she wants to do is drink her glass of whiskey neat, before she takes her chosen lover home. However, someone from her past, Ezio Diviola, pays her a visit with only the intention of engaging in their sordid ritual before he leaves a message for her regarding Jon.
After a few hours, Lana learns Jon’s secrets which paint a different picture of him than she’d imagined. Will his secrets drive her away or will Jon learn her secret, which could be his undoing?
Dr. Lauryne Michel had everything going for her. After years of hard work, she landed her first job as an OB/Gyn doctor at a medical center in Seattle. When driving home to celebrate with her fiance, Trey Benton, the roads leading home were icy and the visibility hindered with thick fog. With the inclimate weather and a small animal in the road, her fate was decided and her perfect life ended.
While under the guidance of archangel, Daniel, she learns she’ll remain in limbo as she still has unfinished business on Earth. This boggles her but there is hope in sight when Daniel informs her to contact a detective from the underworld, Ezio Diavolo, by saying his name three times.
Will Ezio successfully get her out of limbo? Or will their findings be too traumatic to make Lauryne not want to continue and stay in limbo forever?
