This book was a great deal of fun to read. Venetia is a professional photographer; Gabriel is a member of the Arcane Society. They both have psychic abilities, although they don't let each other know that until well into the book. The Society hires Venetia to photograph their artifacts, and she and Gabriel have a short-lived affair. Afterwards, she reads in the newspaper that he died, and she, thinking he is dead, takes his last name and pretends to be a widow for professional reasons. Then he shows up...

These are wonderful characters, vivid and well-drawn with a sense of humor. An excellent read!

The plot flow was all off. The story had no build-up of character development, just plopped you down in the middle of what felt like walking into a joke where you only catch the punch line. Then the author seems to try and write a secondary story after what should have been the main story, but was succinctly said in 2 paragraphs. No real character development after that first chapter really, nothing to gain my like for the characters. The love scenes stunk, and the main man was lame and had no depth; conversationally or otherwise. It just felt unfinished, disjointed, and boring. On a good note, there was little if any grammatical errors, so at least the editor did their job. Very poor book indeed. I love Amanda Quick, and was expecting something a lot different then this book delivered. It felt like someone else was writing under her name. ~Kirst

I really enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful, sexy, and it was an easy read. Even though the story takes place in the 1700's the women are strong characters. Both families have lots of secrets in their past that make for page turning fun.

There was not a lot of romance but what is there is wonderfully written. The scenes are romantic and very private, almost like a throw back to when people were more modest.

I can not wait to read the next book in the series.

First book I read by Amanda Quick, I'm adding her books to my favorite list. A refreshing combination of historial, romance and paranormal. Several times I found myself laughing.... Looking forward to reading more of Amanda Quick books...

I am pleasantly surprised with this book. I have never read Amanda Quick before and thought this may be another romance novel. A little mystery and a little paranormal. The story moves along at a very good clip. Characters are engaging. If it didn't say in the begining the time period I am not sure I would have figured it out. I will definately read another of her books.

Ms. Quick delivers her usual twisty plot, interesting characters and believable romance. A fun read and I look forward to the next book in the series.
