​​​​new to the vault

Coming May 15, 2018

The last thing Catherine Brighton expected when she fought against the Duc d’Orléans was for her family to be thrown back into the turmoil of eighteenth century France.

But when Dominic vanishes, she has no choice. She must follow his trail through time if she wants to bring him home. There’s only one problem with that. Alistair, Dominic’s younger brother, is the only person who can travel through time. The longer they remain back, the less they’ll remember of their modern lives.

Then, too, the sinister Harlequin is always watching, always dancing closer to Catherine. She’s not certain what his ultimate goal is, but it’s becoming clear that she’s the key to some plan. In order to have the future she craves with the man she loves, Catherine is going to have to find the answers somewhere in the maelstrom of Time.

"Beautifully crafted and refreshingly original, Celina Summers is a bold new voice in speculative fiction!"

NYT/USA Today #1 bestselling author Helen Hardt

 "I wasn’t sure what this book would be. Romance? Thriller? Paranormal? Literary? The answer is yes to all. This book really defies category. Catherine is a journalist and former actress. Her boss wants her to audition for a role in this mysterious theater troupe that seems to hypnotize audiences. She’s completely unprepared for what she uncovers: danger, magic, and a love that crosses centuries. I’m completely hooked!"

   "My God! Where do I begin with this masterpiece? It's very, very rare that I come across such a masterful romance novel, but Theater Of Seduction was by far a masterful tale. It's supremely well-crafted, drawing the reader in from our very first introduction to Cat, and refusing to let go until the very last page. "

​"I very seldom give a book 5 stars, but this one earned it and then some. The story line was unique and not easily second guessed, every time I thought I knew where it was going it turned me around and left me guessing again. And the characters were so strong and out there that you could feel like you were right there watching them interact, you could feel their fear, determination, confusion and their affection.. Some places were intense and I had to walk away, but not for long it kept pulling me back in to see what was going to happen next."

"Oh my God, this was even better than the first book. I literally could not put it down. From the very first page I was once again drawn helplessly into the vivid world and conflict that surrounded Cat and the Royale Theatre Company on and off stage. And the Harlequin? Such a fantastically woven character; at times he is malevolent and seductive, at others vulnerable and almost helplessly beholden to a game he does not wish to play. There's a point early on where Cat likens the Harlequin to the Norse god Loki, and the comparison could not be more appropriate.

Brava, Celina, for an excellent second installment to the Harlequinade, and I am simply breathless with anticipation for what's still to come!"
