Gothic Revival: Romance Goes Retro, Bella Street

Olivia Haugen and Kyle Daniels are barely on speaking terms in modern day Nashville—not helped by Kyle’s cranky aunt Constance whose apparent sole purpose in life is to see them walk down the aisle. Olivia and Kyle end up taking a trip down an aisle all right, the one to the magic portal in Constance’s salvage warehouse. They end up in the dark and humid backyard of a place where Gothic secrets are as thick as the Spanish moss draping the live oaks, and bumps in the night give birth to long dormant nightmares.
