Daniel Mackenzie is all rascal — until he encounters famed spiritual medium Violet Bastien. Violet’s mother is the true talent, but even if she can’t really talk to spirits she knows people and she recognizes Daniel as a threat to her reputation. Daniel is intrigued by Violet and the devices she’s created to make the spirit world “real.” When old fears surface, Violet reacts violently and flees England. She prays she is safe going by a new name, but Daniel is determined to locate her and uncover her secret. Daniel knows Violet must be won over with gentleness, and each time her fear of intimacy returns he is there to soothe away the pain and slowly open her heart. When the man who destroyed Violet’s life returns, she must trust in Daniel and the Mackenzies in order to survive. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Oct., 384 pp., $7.99)
