SECOND SIGHT AND SEDUCTION…
 
Daniel Mackenzie lives up to the reputation of the scandalous Mackenzie family—he has wealth, looks, and talent, and women love him. When he meets Violet Bastien—one of the most famous spiritual mediums in England—he immediately knows two things: that Miss Bastien is a fraud, and that he’s wildly attracted to her.

Violet knows she can’t really contact the other side, but she’s excellent at reading people. She discerns quickly that Daniel is intelligent and dangerous to her reputation, but she also finds him generous, handsome, and outrageously wicked. But spectres from Violet’s past threaten to destroy her, and she flees England, adopting yet another identity.

Daniel is determined to find the elusive Violet and pursue the passion he feels for her. And though Violet knows that her scandalous past will keep her from proper marriage, her attraction to Daniel is irresistible. It’s not until Daniel is the only one she can turn to that he proves he believes in something more than cold facts. He believes in love.

After Daniel Mackenzie meets Violet, a charlatan clairvoyant who first intrigues and then nearly kills him, he can't shake the memory of her beauty, her intelligence or her visible fear, so of course he has to track her down and get to the bottom of his inexplicable attraction and protectiveness. As the eldest child of the next generation of infamous Mackenzies, Daniel has garnered his own reputation as a devil-may-care rake, but with his good looks, talent and affability, women love him, and most reasonable gentlemen don't mind his company. And, of course, he has the staunch support and affection of his uncles, some of the most powerful, resourceful and impressive men in England. When Daniel bests a pompous lout in a game of poker and the man tries to pay some of his debt with a late-night visit to a tenant with extraordinary skills, Daniel is surprised when the woman is not a prostitute but a celebrated psychic. Daniel sees through "Violet" right away but is impressed by her ability to read people and her ingenuity in setting up the props that accompany the impromptu séance. He is also conscious of a blazing awareness between them, one that unnerves the beauty and ultimately leads her to push him away violently, accidentally injuring him in the process. When he wakes up the next day, she has disappeared, and he is even more captivated and attracted, a compelling array of feelings that will lead him to find her in Europe and discover her precarious lifestyle as a spiritualist, not to mention a score of other issues. Ultimately, it will convince Daniel he has found the woman he can't live without, which leads to even more challenges the two must face in order to gain their happily-ever-after. Historical romance favorite Ashley is known for her Mackenzie wounded alpha heroes, but fans have watched Daniel grow up through the series, and the author touchingly establishes him as a favored-son hero who takes on the role of knight in shining armor for his beautifully rendered damsel in distress. Another sexy, tender Mackenzie love story that romance fans won't want to miss.
