Why this book?:

Huge fan of this author and I read all her new releases sooner or later.


As usual I enjoyed this book.  The characters follow a similar  type to all Jayne Ann Krentz's characters, and that's part of what I love.  I do have to say, while Evangeline connects with Lucas right away based on, apparently, instinct, the reader isn't given the background to connect so well until later in the book.  And there might have been too many things going on at once.  But like I said, still enjoyable.

I look forward to reading the next in the Ladies of Lantern Street novels, The Mystery Woman (I already have it checked out and ready to go).


  1. Wow, another Arcane series. I got behind on the first set and haven't caught up. *sigh* I can't remember where I left off either.

    1. This one wasn't really Arcane. At least, Arcane wasn't mentioned. But you know Arcane is in that "world." I've never had any problem re-reading JAK's books. If you don't remember there's no harm in trying that. ;p
