Rae Lambers is over the moon when she inherits half a house from her mentor, Thomas Gregory. The property is a gorgeous Victorian on an island in San Francisco Bay. But the house comes with a snag. The other half has been bequeathed to Thomas Gregory's son, Michael, a man Rae carried a torch for during high school.
The last thing Rae needs is a brooding old flame who refuses to play nice. But she and Michael must put aside old wounds when they discover Thomas Gregory might have been murdered - and the souvenir deck of cards from her Egyptian vacation could be the reason the old man is dead.
Rae believes she has unleashed the dark lord of the forbidden tarot. And if she doesn't figure how to stop the beast, she could lose everything...including the man her heart has never forgotten.
