Author: Amanda Quick (pen name for Jayne Krentz)
Series: Arcane Society (third of the historical part of that series)
Genre: Romantic fantasy
Reason for Reading: Amanda Quick is my favorite romantic writer, and I think the Arcane Society novels are among her best books.
Copyright Date: 2009
Cover: Blooming purple flowers. Ferns in front, with drops of blood on them.
First line: "Lucinda stepped a few feet away from the dead man, trying to ignore the fierce undercurrents of tension that raged through the elegant library."
Best part: I felt the relationship between the heroine and her love interest had some unique qualities.
Worst part: These books are (tragically!) starting to seem just a bit alike.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Teardrop" by Massive Attack
Recommended for: Those who, like me, are a bit addicted to this series.
