A new technology called Elusion is sweeping the country. An app, visor and wristband will virtually transport you to an exotic destination where adventure can be pursued without the complications - or consequences - of real life.
Regan is an Elusion insider. Or at least she used to be. Her father invented the progran, and her best friend, Patrick, heir to the tech giant Orexis, is about to release it nationwide. But ever since her father's unexpected death, Regan can't bear to Escape, especially since waking up from the dream means crashing back to her grim reality.
Still, when there are rumors of trouble in Elusion - accusations that it's addictive and dangerous - Regan is determined to defend it. But the critics of Elusion come from surprising sources, including Josh, the handsome skeptic with his own personal stakes. As Regan investigates the claims, she discovers a disturbing web of secrets. She will soon have to choose between love and loyalty . . . a decision that will affect the lives of millions.

Publication Date: April 8, 2014
From Barnes & Noble:
When she catches Edmund Wyatt following her through the streets of London, Abbie Sharp learns that every British monarch for hundreds of years has known about - and financially supported - the Conclave. Furious that the monarchy would cooperate with such a nefarious group, Abbie refuses Wyatt's request for help in catching the person who is blackmailing Queen Victoria with this secret information. But a far greater threat emerges with the Ripper, Max, returns and brings a string of new murders with him. Abbie must choose whether to help the Queen she now despises or stop Max from succeeding at his most diabolical plan yet - the creation of a whole new Conclave aimed at usurping the British throne.
