In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton thought her stay at the remote, ramshackle Arcane House, far from society's prying eyes, would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment. She was there to photograph the relics and artifacts collected by a highly secretive organization, founded two centuries earlier by an eccentric alchemist. And the alchemist's descendant-her employer, Mr. Gabriel Jones - had the eyes of a sorcerer….

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 papers. 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, where her unique ability to "see" beyond her subjects and capture that quality in her photography makes her photographs highly prized.

But her romantic whim causes unexpected trouble. For one thing, Mr. Jones is about to stride, living and breathing, back into her life. And the bonds that tie them together include more than just the memory of passion; Venetia's special "double vision" has caught the attention of someone Mr. Jones is tracking-someone who 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.

Now, as she introduces Gabriel about town as her miraculously back-from-the-dead "husband," Venetia must join him in a perilous quest to track down a dangerous opponent who manages to stay one step ahead. As they explore the darker, wilder underbelly of the modern, scientific Victorian world, they must see through society's illusions-or this time, Gabriel Jones may not be coming from the dead, and neither may Mrs. Jones.

    Great story but terrible performance!
    This narrator could not do male voices which made connecting with lead impossible…she does female okay but not male.

    love a romance mixed with mystery
    Amanda Quick does it right. I get very tried of the straight romance novels. But Quick adds spunk to her ladies and writes a good mystery in with her romance. (I forward thru the top vivid sex scenes that occasionally appear. They just aren’t for me.)

    Not very memorable
    This is the first book I’ve read by this author. The story line looked interesting and I’m always looking for a new series. For me, the characters were too predictable, a little shallow and the whole story was pretty cliche through out. I wanted to fast forward a number of times whenever I lost patience with the writing style.

    Romance and intrigue and science and alchemy
    heroes and heroine all combined to make a lovely light enjoyable read on a cold winter weekend.

    Anne Flosnik is always great
    This is a great beginning of a new series. This is my second through the series so I am looking forward the rest of the story.

    YUCK
    MY FIRST TIME WITH THIS AUTHOR, I DIDN’T LAST MORE THEN A 1/2 HR. PROBABLY IS JUST ME, BUT IT WAS THE LEVEL OF A TRITE HIGH SCHOOL ROMANCE NOVEL. NOT MY CUP OF TEA. CAN I GET A REFUND?

    Formula Romance
    As someone who enjoys science fiction and the supernatural, this book sounded promising. However, I found it to be just another predictable romance novel. The supernatural elements of the storyline were secondary and a weak attempt at putting a unique twist on a formula storyline. I was disappointed and will not invest anymore time or money into this series.
