Charmian longs to be viewed as an equal partner who put her own career on hold to support her husband. But Jack doesn’t see it that way… until, Charmian is pulled from the audience at a magic show of the beguiling escape artist, Harry Houdini, a man enmeshed in his own troubled marriage. And suddenly, charmed by the attention Houdini pays her, and entranced by his sexual magnetism, Charmian’s eyes open to a world of possibilities that could be her escape.
