Master of the Opera coverBLURB:

In the first tantalizing installment of Jeffe Kennedy’s ravishing serial novel Master of the Opera, an innocent young woman is initiated into a sensual world of music, mystery, passion–and one man’s private obsession. . .

Fresh out of college, Christine Davis is thrilled to begin a summer internship at the prestigious Santé Fe Opera House. But on her first day, she discovers that her dream job has a dark side. Beneath the theater, a sprawling maze of passageways are rumored to be haunted. Ghostly music echoes through the halls at night. And Christy’s predecessor has mysteriously disappeared. Luckily, Christy finds a friend and admirer in Roman Sanclaro, the theater’s wealthy and handsome patron. He convinces her there’s nothing to fear–until she hears the phantom’s voice for herself. Echoing in the labyrinths. Singing of a lost love. Whispering her name: Christine.

At first, Christy thinks she’s hearing things. But when a tall masked man steps out of the shadows–and into her arms–she knows he’s not a phantom of her imagination. He is the master of her desire. . .

I’ve had the opportunity to read several other books from Jeffe Kennedy before and was excited to hear about this latest one.  This is one author that knows how to build up romantic suspense.  For Act 1 of Master of the Opera it doesn’t get too steamy, but it does set the stage (so to speak).

The main character, Christine, is young an innocent just starting out in the world with her first job after finishing school.  She comes off a bit flighty and niave, but that’s what makes this story work.  She’s doing her best to prove she can handle being on her own away from her rich family, and if she has to ignore some odd occurrences while cataloging inventory in the basement levels of the opera house, so be it.  Except, it gets a whole lot more complicated than that.

There’s one man, Roman, who she’s known for much of her life and had a crush on since she was a teenager.  This is her chance to finally get to know him on a romantic level and he definitely seems interested.  But there’s also a strange man who is haunting her down in the basement where she works.  She just can’t be sure if he’s real.  Something about him intrigues her, though, even if he is scaring her every time they meet.  Especially when the body of the woman Christine replaced is found very close to where she’d been working.  Could it have been the strange man or is something even more sinister going on?

After reading Act 1, I’m definitely curious to see where all this leads.  It has a similar feel to a scary movie and you just know not everything is as it seems.  I’ll definitely be picking up the next acts because the suspense has certainly got to me.  Four whips for this first segment in Master of the Opera!

  1. This looks like a great read! I’ve read two of Kennedy’s books and loved them both. A Phantom of the Opera themed erotica sounds glorious.
