This Victorian paranormal romance was a quick, enjoyable read. I liked the leads, although sometimes I got frustrated by two intelligent people making some of the worst decisions ever. I also found the sex scenes a bit "modern" for my suspension of disbelief. Still, the story kept my interest and kept me turning pages.

The second historical book in this series is better than this one. So keep the faith and read on.

If you enjoy Victorian romances with a healthy dose of sex, this should interest you. If you enjoy paranormal romances, this could also be of interest. If you like both, this should be your cup of tea. ( )

Victorian romantic suspense with a paranormal psychic twist. Mystery, romance and the paranormal. ( )

Synopsis:
Venetia Milton is a Victorian-era photographer with the uncanny ability to see people's auras. Gabriel Jones is a member of the Arcane Society, which has hired Venetia to photographic their mysterious collection of relics. When these two meet, sparks fly in more ways than one and they must ultimately join forces to catch a killer intent on discovering the secret formula to enhance psychic abilities.

Review:
This is a quick and entertaining read (no pun intended). The prose flows and the characters are well developed. The romantic leads have a sweet relationship and there are some interesting details on early photographic techniques.
Nevertheless, I had some minor issues. First, the mystery outweighs the romance, and second, the discovery of the killer's identity and his demise are quite sudden and anti-climactic. ( )

3.5 fun light read. Nicely plotted. ( )

DESCRIPTION, NOT REVIEW: New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick invites you to experience a thrilling adventure filled with the lure of ancient secrets and the simmering passions of the Victorian age in the first Arcane Society novel.

Venetia Milton’s memories of a romantic night with Gabriel Jones—an alchemist’s descendant—are shattered soon thereafter by news of his death. Adopting the guise of his respectable widow, she embarks on a new career as a fashionable photographer in London, where her unique ability to “see” beyond her subjects makes her photographs highly prized.

But Venetia’s romantic whim causes unexpected trouble. For one thing, Mr. Jones is about to stride, living and breathing, back into her life. And someone he is tracking will go to any lengths, even murder, to possess an ancient, extraordinary secret that has been lost for centuries. Someone who believes that as the “wife” of Mr. Jones, Venetia is the key... ( )
