It’s the roaring twenties, and San Francisco is a hotbed of illegal boozing, raw lust, and black magic. The fog-covered Bay Area can be an intoxicating scene, particularly when you specialize in spirits...

Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown’s illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act.

Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who’s more comfortable with guns than ghosts—unfortunately for him, he’s the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida’s supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her...

On the hunt for the curseworker responsible for the hex, Aida and Winter become drunk on passion. And the closer they become, the more they realize they have ghosts of their own to exorcise...

Review:

"An inventive setting, delightfully sharp-tongued characters, white-hot chemistry, and wry, subtle humor make for a truly enjoyable read." --Molly Harper, national bestselling author of the Nice Girls vampire series

"I loved this book! Bennett delivers a sizzling-hot yet swoon-worthy love story with a mystery that keeps you guessing until the end, all set in the fresh and ultra cool world of 1920s Jazz Age San Francisco." --Kristen Callihan, author of the Darkest London series

"Complex and smart romantic leads...Expect historical romance authors and fans to eagerly hop on the Roaring 20s bandwagon, following Bennett's very able lead." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Stupendous." --RT Book Reviews, Top Pick

"Absolutely delightful... Bennett's fast-paced dialogue, often witty and sharp, as well as her charming characters and detailed setting, will truly captivate romance readers." --Booklist, starred review
"The time period and setting are depicted superbly; Winter and Aida are smart yet vulnerable, and the story offers both shivers and steam... There's danger all around, and the couple bump up against it more than once in this action-packed tale." --Bookpage
