Rainbow Awards finalist. Also nominated for Lambda and Golden Crown Awards 2015. ” . . . a beautiful page turner that is also . . . an extended poem. And a love poem at that. Vividly written, suspenseful, darkly humorous” (Jeff York, The Examiner)

When Carly Rosen is jilted on the eve of her wedding, she embarks on a startling journey of self-discovery. This gender-bending risqué retelling of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, set in sizzling West Hollywood, echoes the ancient story of the lovers in the Underworld.

What do you do when your lover has eloped with another woman on the eve of your wedding? The other woman is a famous beauty named Anna Garibaldi, and you die inside. To add insult to injury, the one who has abandoned you dies unexpectedly. Where do you go from there for solace, for justice? If you are Carly Rosen, a portrait artist with huge imagination, you use your art to charm your way into the life and inner circle of the alluring Anna Garibaldi, whose seductive and secretive underworld is nothing you could have expected! You are doomed and you are blessed, and you don’t know which you prefer.
