Read full description of the books Second Sight:I am not exactly an historical romance lover and you probably thinking…if so, why did I even pick this book up and what made me like it so much………….. ?
Having read and liked 5 of the books in Jayne Ann Krentz’s Arcane Society Series, I have wanted to read the rest of the series and discovered that Second Sight was Book 1 and it would give me the back-story on the series and how the secretive Arcane Society was started and what it represents. Men and women with paranormal abilities!!!!
The book blurb:
According to the blurb, Second Sight is set in Victorian England. The characters include Gabriel Jones, one of the infamous Jones men of the secret paranormal organization, the Arcane Society and Venetia Milton, a photographer with a special way of "seeing" beyond her subjects. The other two high ranking Jones men, Thaddeus Ware and Caleb Jones, are also involved in the mystery. Gabriel and Venetia must pose as husband and wife as they work to track down a dangerous opponent of the Joneses.
This was a quick-paced, well-thought out and intriguing story set in the late Victorian era, filled with romantic suspense, likeable and endearing characters, paranormal forces, twists and unexpected turns, witty dialogue and some sizzling and sexy moments between the two main characters. Nothing I was expecting from an historical novel…..
Just some of the things I liked about this book:
The heroine – She was a woman before her time!!!!! I loved how she was comfortable with who she was and did exactly what she wanted to do with her life!!!!
The hero - I liked that, whilst he had this over protectiveness towards Venetia, he still admired her independence and her adventurous spirit. And he was a hell of a hot guy!!!!!
I so enjoyed the historical detail in the story and the vivid writing almost made me feel I was living in the Victorian time in London…
A really good read.
What baffles me about this series is why it’s not written under one name but two!!!! Jayne Ann Krentz and one of her pseudonyms Amanda Quick!!!
