As a human chameleon, Spencer has had lifelong aspirations to become a master of disguise. However, these dreams are waylaid due to circumstances beyond his control, that is, until the year that changes everything. A bitter shell of a man in his early twenties, Spencer fears that everything good and unique about him has been leeched out of him from years of disappointment. When a homely heiress goes missing under mysterious circumstances, it falls to Spencer to track her down. A secret client contacts the private investigation firm for which he works and he is finally given the opportunity to prove what he can do. What follows is a series of strange locations, colorful characters, and strange mysteries, including, but not limited to, the enigmatic Mr. Scarlett. After an eventful encounter, Mr. Scarlett seems smitten with one of Spencer's alter egos. But who is this man and what exactly is he hiding? Spencer feels invariably drawn to the chiseled, stoic persona of Mr. Scarlett, but fears what might happen if he learned of Spencer's true identity. The pressure is on as the investigation continues even as Spencer is dogged by a determined Mr. Scarlett. Secrets are revealed as Spencer switches his identities from blue collar workers to wealthy retirees to gorgeous club goers. He encounters unusual horse breeders running a Kafkaesque ranch, secret groups from the upper echelons of American royalty, and some incredibly scary people whose true nature is yet to be determined. With all this to contend with, does Spencer even have the mental capacity to consider a potential romance? There's somebody out there who certainly hopes so. Please Note: This book contains adult language & steamy adult activities, it is intended for 18+ Adults Only. Novel, approx. 70,000 words in length. HEA (happy ever after ending). Does not end with a "cliffhanger."

This carefully crafted ebook: “Complete Short Stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne (Illustrated Edition)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Excerpts: “I am afraid this ghost story will bear a very faded aspect when transferred to paper. Whatever effect it had on you, or whatever charm it retains in your memory, is, perhaps, to be attributed to the favorable circumstances under which it was originally told.” (The Ghost of Doctor Harris) American novelist and short story writer Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–1864) published his first work, a novel titled Fanshawe, in 1828; he later tried to suppress it, feeling it was not equal to the standard of his later work. He published several short stories in various periodicals, which he collected in 1837 as Twice-Told Tales. Much of Hawthorne's writing centres on New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered to be part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, Dark romanticism. His themes often centre on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity.
