Theatres have a certain kind of magic. When the curtain rises, we are all enraptured by the glare of the lights and the smell of the greasepaint but it's when the curtain falls that the real drama begins . . .

In 1952 two young lovers meet, in secret, at the beautiful Southern Cross theatre in the very heart of London's West End. Their relationship is made up of clandestine meetings and stolen moments because there is someone who will make them suffer if he discovers she is no longer 'his'. But life in the theatre doesn't always go according to plan and tragedy and heartache are waiting in the wings for all the players . . .

Almost seventy years later, a new production of When the Curtain Falls arrives at the theatre, bringing with it Oscar Bright and Olive Green and their budding romance. Very soon, though, strange things begin to happen and they learn about the ghost that's haunted the theatre since 1952, a ghost who can only be seen on one night of the year. Except the ghost is appearing more often and seems hell bent on sabotaging Oscar and Olive. The young couple realise they need to right that wrong from years gone by, but can they save themselves before history repeats itself and tragedy strikes once more?


Moulin Rouge meets Phantom of the Opera in this spellbinding and magical story of unrequited love and revenge. When the Curtain Falls is Carrie Hope Fletcher at her romantic best - it will take your breath away. Coming in July 2018!

You are the Key. The lock awaits. Librarian Dana Steele has always considered herself to be an enlightened woman but her recent experiences at Warrior's Peak have required much more of her than just an open-mind. Along with Malory Price and Zoe McCourt she has had to take a huge leap of faith and believe in the ancient mythic story she has been told. It is a tale of a young Celtic god who fell for a human girl and of their three daughters, demi-goddesses all, who were cast into an eternal sleep, their mortal souls placed under lock and key. And in each generation three are chosen who have the power to release them - if they dare accept a challenge that could promise them great riches but also grave danger And now it is Dana's turn. Three women. Three keys to find. If one fails, they all lose. If they all succeed - money, power and a new destiny awaits. It will take more than intellect, more than determination. They will have to open their hearts, their minds, and believe that everything and anything is possible.
