It´s about seducing an audience and inviting and drawing someone inside a story or a play. Playing a piece of music so seductively that the listeners forget all else. Watching a film with someone or admiring beautiful work of art in a museum? Being seduced by beauty and letting it draw you in.
This could possibly also hint to lying and cheating?
Indeed, and the card can also fit the standard interpretation:

"This card implies that the foundation is finished and ready to be developed. It signifies the successful completion of a first stage or a first draft, first full rehearsal, first election to a
small but significant post. It also predicts that the querent will (or has) enjoyed this moment of completion, celebrated it.

Often this card is read as indicating marriage, this because marriage is seen as the “completion” of the first stage of a relationship. The couple cement the foundation they’ve laid down with a commitment ceremony.

There is a danger when this card comes up, however, of the querent feeling like they’ve finished the project when, in truth, they’ve only finished that first part. Many see marriage as the goal of a relationship rather than the completion of a stage. A reader might do well to remind the querent that while a celebration for having completed this first stage is well deserved, they need to also think of ways to re-energize themselves. There is more to do."

Next, onto the LWB:

Desire is fuelled by the unknown, not what is in full view.

I fully agree on the seduction comments, further, that this is done with subtlety. By maintaining an element of mystery, all things become more intoxicating! Maybe advice as to how to keep the initial excitement alive?

It could also refer, in the context of the standard meaning above, a pull towards to something mysterious, when the querent should be focusing on the work to be done in their core situation. In other words, this card shows the temptation that can lead us from the long-term path we have been traveling.
