When world-famous author Darien Port invites budding writer Roan Gage for drinks at his elegant New England mansion, he has an ulterior motive. Suffering from writer's block, what he really wants is for Roan to ghost his new manuscript. Though the offer is tempting, Roan is determined to spend the summer in a secluded cabin working on his own fledgling novel. But that's before he meets the enigmatic Leisha, a seductive beauty who shares Darien's mansion. Roan soon finds that getting entangled with Darien Port and his mistress is the mistake of a lifetime, and that the stakes involved may be a familiar muse--his eternal soul. A short story.
