Publisher's Summary

Relationships are challenging enough for most single, over-30 women. For level-10 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 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.
Listen to another Arcane Society novel.

Critic Reviews

"Krentz delivers another evocative romance, complete with engaging dialogue and explicit sex scenes, but the real meat of the plot concerns the sleuthing: that a charismatic alpha male finally meets his mate is icing on another densely plotted Krentz confection." ( Publishers Weekly)

It's on the bottom of my list

I didn't care for this book because the characters lacked depth and I didn't like the narrating/editing on this book. Nothing about the characters dragged me down into the story or made me want to emotionally invest myself into their situations. Still, I wanted to know what happened to the Arcane society so I hung in there to the end. If the next book in the series is like this, I'll give up.

I struggled the most with the narration style and editing of this book. The editing during conversations between characters sounded choppy and far from fluid. It sounded like the parts were read separately and pasted together, instead of being a fluid conversation. There were too many times when both narrators sounded like very bad actors reading a bad play.

One of her best!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What made the experience of listening to White Lies the most enjoyable?

This is a terrific story as usual for JAK. The romance is hot, the characters are interesting, and the story line is fascinating. I have read this novel many times and now I have repeatedly listened to the audio version. Every time I hear/read this I find something new to enjoy. Thanks JAK for a wonderful experience.

What does David Colacci and Kathy Garver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It was fun to hear the sexy flirting between Colacci and Garver.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

White lies and promises.
