Carmen has a secret, and his name is Dr. Micah Worthy.
Affairs aren’t permitted between staff members at St. Michael’s Asylum, but Carmen and her handsome young psychiatrist find a way to sneak in a kiss or two in empty storerooms when no one’s looking.
It doesn’t take long for her suspicions to rise, however, as she gets to know some of the patients. Why are some kept locked in their rooms, doped to the gills? And where are the two dozen patients whose names appear on the med lists, but whom she’s never met? Moreover, what’s so forbidden about the ancient passages snaking beneath the two-hundred-year old monastery?
Something’s off in the asylum, and when nothing seems to add up, Carmen and Micah unite to uncover the truth.
When staff members learn she’s on to them, the threats begin. Can Carmen report her findings before she ends up in the icy Atlantic?
Set on the rugged Maine coast in the dead of winter, The Asylum is an intriguing story of romance and danger, filled with characters you’ll love and breathless action that’ll keep you up way past your bedtime.
