Publisher's Summary

In this second novel of the Dreamlight trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick, psychic power and passion collide when a legendary curse ignites a dangerous desire.

The Arcane Society was born in turmoil when the friendship of its two founders evolved into a fierce rivalry. Nicholas Winters’s efforts led to the creation of a device of unknown powers called the Burning Lamp. Each generation of male descendants who inherits it is destined to develop multiple talents - and the curse of madness.

Plagued by hallucinations and nightmares, notorious crime lord Griffin Winters is convinced he has been struck with the Winters Curse. But even as he arranges a meeting with the mysterious woman Adelaide Pyne, he has no idea how closely their fates are bound, for she holds the missing lamp in her possession.

But their dangerous psychic experiment makes them the target of forces both inside and outside of the Arcane Society. And though desire strengthens their power, their different lives will keep them apart - if death doesn’t take them together.

Dream on: listen to more of the Dreamlight trilogy.

Critic Reviews

"Bestseller Jayne Ann Krentz, writing under her historical fantasy nom de plume, turns in a top-notch performance in the second Dreamlight novel....Fast-paced and cleverly constructed, the tale perfectly balances lively adventure, passionate romance, and the paranormal against an elaborate and refreshingly original background. Arcane Society fans will be thrilled, and new readers will find this stand-alone story very accessible." ( Publishers Weekly)

Can't she write any faster!

The only problem with an Amanda Quick novel is that it ends too soon and she doesn't write them fast enough :)
I love the humor and the delightful exchanges between her female protagonist and the "guy". Fun fun fun

Meh...

Not steamy, not interesting. Usually I enjoy Amanda Quick but this one was boring and I struggled to finish.

WONDERFUL TRILOGY

This second book of 3 goes right along and great with the whole Arcane Series. The Burning Lamp is wonderful along with the first and 3rd book of this series.
