Christina dreamed of becoming a magician like her father, but real life made her fantasy disappear. Now a twenty-five-year-old waitress in Boston, she passes the local magic store and can only imagine what might have been. One day, compelled to step inside, she captures the attention of a charming street performer, who hires her as his assistant. Christina has no desire to make a career out of holding some guy’s props, but maybe Reynaldo the Magnificent could be her ticket to something bigger. When his dark side threatens everything she’s worked for—including the troubled young doctor who has become one of her fans—she questions if the opportunity for a second chance is worth the price of admission.
