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 fa├žade - 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.


What the Critics Say

"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.

I wish I could rate this higher

I love Nora Roberts and I read this book about a year ago and really liked it. Unfortunately the female narrator ruined this audiobook for me. She "reads" the story, in fact it sounds like an automated machine. There is no feeling in her voice, no show of emotion, so you never feel a connection between the two characters. I got to the point where I didn't care. It has been very difficult for me to finish this one. I'll be sure to note her name so that I never use a credit on her again.
