Violence is swirling around the Royale Theater Troupe as they prepare to open Harlequin on Broadway. After confronting the ultimate treachery when d’Orléans dragged her back in time, Catherine has learned two brutal truths. First, the Duc d’Orléans has figured out a way to cheat death. And second, the Harlequin has an agenda quite different from her old enemy’s…a very personal agenda.

While Dominic and Alistair desperately search for a way to protect the company from these dual threats, Catherine is slowly becoming convinced that’s impossible. As the Harlequin pushes from these dual threats, Catherine is slowly becoming convinced that’s impossible. As the Harlequin pushes ever harder to force her to submit, her old fears begin to swallow her once more. But if there’s one thing Cat does well, it’s stubbornness. Her quest for answers takes her to the famed Hellfire Caves, and an unexpected betrayal puts everything she loves on the line. The theater of cruelty takes no prisoners, and Cat must find a way to fight the powerful entities ranged against her.

If she can bear the cost.

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

 "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."

Harlequinade 2:
Theater of Deception
Amazon -Kindle/Print

​​Six months after Catherine
Brighton’s theatrical troupe
finishes its Broadway run of the
Carnival trilogy, the company
mounts a new play: Harlequin.
The character fits perfectly into
the theater of seduction—a
magical power that compels an
audience’s emotional responses.

However, rehearsals are tense.
Her husband, Dominic, distrusts
the actor playing the lead role.
Cat and Alistair, Dominic’s brother,
struggle to keep the peace. Soon something inimical is dancing around the company, spinning strands of danger that entangle Cat in a shockingly familiar web. She fears that Phillip has somehow returned from the dead—not that Dominic believes her.

Whoever her unknown enemy is, he’s masquerading as the title character from Harlequin—a character both sinister and seductive—which terrifies her. But when she unexpectedly finds herself trapped two centuries in the past, Cat learns that there are far worse things to fear.

Like Time.

"Celina Summers, what can I say, but thank you for offering your book as an ARC. I loved the cover, so this and the blurb, may have drawn me in, but I have so many books in my library to read, I may not have picked it up... I will be watching out for new, and adding TBRs to my list. Fantastic book!"

"I never expected something this good. This is a unique storyline to me. So many surprises. I was almost part of the sudience. I definitely felt, but I also remembered. I will not give up the story. This is a book that has to be experienced. I loved the characters, they drew me in quickly and never let go. I felt it all."

I am hooked and can’t wait for what’s next. Based off of this piece of work, I will gladly read anything Celina Summers cares to write. She is just that good."
