Overview

White Lies (Arcane Society Series #2) by Jayne Ann Krentz

Relationships are challenging enough for most single over-thirty women. For level ten parasensitive Clare Lancaster, they're a minefield. The elite few who know her secret call her a human lie detector, and any falsehood, no matter how subtle or well hidden, sets her blood racing. Over the years, Clare has come to accept that someone with her extraordinary talents is unlikely to find a suitable mate. And she's even resigned herself to the fact that everyone, to one degree or another, hides behind a façade.

Including her recently deceased brother-in-law. When Clare finds the body of Brad McAllister, the golden child of Stone Canyon, Arizona, the posh residents turn a suspicious eye in her direction. As Archer Glazebrook's daughter, Clare is shielded from the law, but not the gossip. It seems that meeting the half sister and family whom she did not know until seven months ago was a mistake. Now her father summons her from California to play a role in his business empire, and Clare doesn't intend on making the same mistake twice. But after meeting Jake Salter, Archer's "business consultant," she is convinced that things aren't what they seem. Salter's careful conversation walks a delicate line between truth and deception, revealing and resisting. Something sparks and sizzles between them - something more than the usual electricity between a man and a woman.

Caught in a dizzying storm of secrets, lies, and half-truths, Jake and Clare will 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.

This is my second read for the Arcane Society Series. I'm afraid I started backwards with the Ghost Hunter Series and then Midnight Crystal. But it's great to see how it all started and meet the ancestors of major players throughout both series. We meet Clare, who's a tough and skilled woman that loves her family. We also learn there's a heck of a past attached to her. I adored the first time Jake saw her and the crack about 'something wicked this way comes' haha. We fast find that he's a very intelligent and in control man, and that he's also not quite who he seems. Both have abilities and secrets which leads to a wild ride of murder, mystery, danger, conspiracies, romance, family and humor. I adored both Jake and Clare's families and am glad they were just as developed as the leads. Clare's dad is gruff yet loving, and a very sweet papa bear. Her loving and loyal sister and Myra, who ends up being a surprise. Jake's cousin, who's going to have to work hard to win Clare over *grin*, is also very interesting. Have a feeling we'll be seeing him again. I also feel this series will only get better. As always, Krentz's work is exceptional and I highly recommend this amazing series.

Jayne Ann Krentz (aka Amanda Quick) is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I recently read "Second Sight," the first Arcane Society novel set in the Victorian era. I am very glad that Krentz decided to extend the Arcane society stories over a wider time range; it gives lots of scope for interesting 'back-and-forth'-ing through time. This novel is smart, funny, passionate, and mysterious with sizzling sexual tension. I loved the relationship between the protagonists, Jake and Clare. They talked and listened to each other; they had disagreements and difficulties, but they were willing to communicate and deal with their problems. Start reading this series...I promise you won't regret it!!

I really enjoyed this book. I have read many books by Amanda Quick and loved them. I really enjoy historical books and was a little skeptical about the present time frame but I wanted to try one of her books written under Jayne Ann Krentz. I was pleasantly suprised. Now I have a new series to read!

I love all of Jayne Ann Krentz's books no matter what name she writes under. This book was exceptionally good. Krentz has a way of blending the perfect amoounts of supsense, romance, mystery and sci-fi to make a smooth, "can't put the book down" read.

Five stars all the way. The Arcane Society is a amazing and detailed looked into the (not so unrealistic) side of human nature. Well written and fantastic. I have read all her books on the Arcane Society, cannot wait for the next one.

This one was awesome! And I really did like the readers, especially how the male and female readers worked together. Great story, and romance, and the characters really came together.

The suspense was there for the whole book. It wasn't until the near end that I was aware who the murderer might be. It was a very enjoyable book in a enjoyable series so far.

This is a great read that although selves into the supernatural, it is still very believable. The plot is good and with the main characters delving into murders and mayhem, they are not so meddlesome that the reader becomes annoyed with them. This is a great book to curl up on a rainy afternoon and escape. It is a good length but also does not drag anywhere. Great plot development and although these books are a series, there is enough reader information as to not feel left out.

I love Jayne. I have pretty much read every book she has written. I liked this book. It wasn't her best but it was still good. I am really not a fan of having to jump form one centry to the next when reading a series of books though. I can't wait to read Sizzle and Burn.

Well folks, she did it again. Jayne Ann Krentz has you up all night with book in hand. From the first line to the end of the Novel, you just can¿t put it down. So be prepared to give up on sleeping. I¿ve read Thousands of Novels, and when I run across something that has me turning pages with no concept of time, its Appreciated. The passion between Clare and Jake is steamy¿ You fall in Love with Jake and Clare. Clare with a Love of family and wanting to belong, but don¿t get me wrong, Clare can be pretty stubborn and will stand on her own and Jake is a powerful man with a protective streak that makes you just want to wrap yourself around him or him wrap himself around you. With both having extraordinary talents that may have you thinking about what the future could hold. So grab yourself a blanket, wrap up and read how the events unfold.
