Arcane Society
  • Second Sight (2006) (Writing as Amanda Quick)
    There is nothing like having a dead husband return from the grave to ruin a fine spring morning….

    In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton is a Victorian-era photographer who possesses the uncanny ability to see other peoples’ auras. When she is hired to photograph the strange artifacts in the private collection of the Arcane Society she seizes on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment.

    Her new employer -- Gabriel Jones – is just as mysterious as the relics in the Society’s museum. Not only does he have the eyes of a sorcerer, he is endowed with some unique psychic talents.

    After a night to remember Venetia is prepared to cherish the memories of her romantic encounter and move on, but she is shattered when, shortly after their night together, she reads of Jones’s death in the paper. As a private tribute to her one-time lover, she adopts the name “Mrs. Jones” and the guise of a respectable widow, and embarks on a new career as a fashionable photographer in London.

    But her romantic whim lands her in a world of trouble. For one thing, Mr. Jones is about to stride, living and breathing, back into her life, threatening to ruin the carefully constructed illusion of respectability that is all that stands between her and financial disaster.

    What does one do with an inconvenient husband? Venetia consigns hers to the attic. Keeping him there, however, is a problem.

    Matters deteriorate further when Venetia witnesses a murder and sees the killer’s aura. It soon becomes apparent that she is the only one who can identify the truly scary individual who is after the Arcane Society’s most closely held secret.

    Mr. And Mrs. Jones have no alternative but to join forces in a perilous quest to track down a ruthless opponent.

  • White Lies (2007) (Writing as Jayne Ann Krentz)
    Think you can’t get a decent date? Imagine how depressing things are when you know for sure that the guy is lying when he says he’ll call…

    Clare Lancaster is a Level Ten para-sensitive – and a “human lie detector”. She is also a member of the modern day Arcane Society. Over the years she has come to accept that someone with her extraordinary talent is doomed to have relationship issues.

    Clare has even been rejected as “unmatchable” by the Society’s matchmaking agency, arcanematch.com

    In a way, Clare’s whole life has been a lie. Now, however, she has just met the half sister and family whom she never knew until seven months ago. Her father summons her from California to play a role in his business empire. Clare rejects the offer. But after meeting Jake Salter, Archer Lancaster’s “financial consultant”, she is convinced that things aren’t what they seem. Salter’s careful conversation seems to walk a delicate line between truth and deception. Something sparks and sizzles between them – something more than the usual electricity between a man and a woman.

    Jake Salter is also a Level Ten para-sensitive with some dangerous psychic talents of his own. He, too, has been declared “unmatchable” by the Society’s matchmakers.

    Each knows that the other is keeping secrets.

    Caught in a dizzying storm of lies and half-truths, Jake and Clare plunge into an investigation that demands every bit of their special gifts. Together they must overcome their mutual distrust in order to unravel a web of conspiracy and murder with tentacles that go deep into the very heart of the Arcane Society.

  • The River Knows (2007)
    The first kiss occurred in a dimly lit hallway on the upper floor of Elwin Hastings's grand house. Louisa never saw it coming....
    Of course, Anthony Stalbridge couldn't possibly have had romantic intentions. The kiss was an act of desperation meant to distract the armed guard from catching the pair in a place they did not belong. After all, Louisa Bryce, in her dull maroon gown and gold-rimmed spectacles, was no man's idea of an alluring female. The only thing the two interlopers have in common is a passionate interest in the private affairs of Mr. Hastings—a prominent member of Society whom they both suspect of hiding terrible secrets. Now, brought together by their ruse, Anthony and Louisa are united in their efforts to find the truth.

    Each has a reason for the quest. Anthony's fiancée was said to have thrown herself into the Thames—but Anthony has his own suspicions. Louisa—whose own identity is shrouded in layers of mystery—is convinced that Hastings has a connection to a notorious brothel. When Anthony successfully cracks Hastings's hidden safe—and discovers incriminating evidence—it appears that both their instincts were correct.

    Yet Hastings is hiding far more than jewels and ledger books. Bringing him to justice will be more perilous than they anticipate—and their partnership will be more heated than either one expects. For it is not only Anthony's curiosity that Louisa arouses, and the two share something else: a thrilling attraction to danger. . . .
