More than three centuries ago, Nicholas Winters irrevocably altered his genetic makeup in an obsession-fueled competition with alchemist and Arcane Society founder Sylvester Jones. Both men are driven to control their psychic abilities, and their decisions have reverberated throughout the family line, rewarding some with powers beyond their wildest dreams, and cursing others to a life filled with madness and hallucinations. Jack Winters, descendant of Nicholas, has been experiencing nightmares and blackouts—just the beginning, he believes, of the manifestation of the Winters family curse. The legend says that he must find the Burning Lamp or risk turning into a monster. But he can’t do it alone; he needs the help of a woman with the talent to read the lamp’s dreamlight. Jack is convinced that private investigator Chloe Harper is that woman. Her talent for finding objects and accessing dream energy are what will save him, but a sudden and powerful sexual pull threatens to overwhelm them both. Danger surrounds them, and it doesn’t take long for Chloe to pick up the trail of the missing lamp. And as she and Jack draw closer to it, the raw power that dwells within it threatens to sweep them into a hurricane of psychic power. Download and start listening now!

    " I have always liked Jayne Krentz's books but I found this a little out there for me. It's the first book of a trilogy and I doubt that I will read the next two books. "

    " The modern chapter of the Dreamlight Trilogy, another addition to the Arcane Society tales. Jack Winters is a descendant of the genetically altered paranormal genius Nicholas Winters. Unfortunately, the legacy is accompanied by a curse and destiny to become a monster if he begins manifesting more than one talent unless he finds the Burning Lamp and a woman who can manipulate the dreamlight energy that it can produce. Chloe Harper is an exceptional dreamlight manipulator descended from a long line of paranormal Talents who prefer to operate without attracting the attention of the powerful Jones family. Jack hires Chloe for her investigative talents to find the lamp which has disappeared from his family but he also hopes that her Talent in using dreamlight will be sufficient to save him. Jack is not the only one who wants to find and use the Burning Lamp and he and Chloe must deal with their attraction to each other and survive the challenges from the sinister Nightshade society. There is additional danger from the Jones family who will not hesitate to destroy Jack if he becomes a Cerberus by developing an additional Talent and spiraling downward into insanity. Ultimately, Chloe may be Jack's only hope. "

    " I got tired of Jayne Ann Krentz quickly but I did like this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francine | 1/27/2014

    " A contempory Arcane Society novel, Fired Up combines two special talents to find the Burning Lamp and figure out how to use it to keep the hero sane and the world safe. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 1/19/2014

    " Having never read any books by this author before I knew going in that I was at a disadvantage. Not the problem for me - Too much psychic/paranormal jargon in this book was the problem. Though I like sci-fi/paranormal fiction this was more than I like. Doubt I'll read the rest of the trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 1/13/2014

    " A new series with a supernatural theme. One to start and continue reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 12/18/2013

    " Ok onto the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Katz | 11/30/2013

    " Krentz has brilliant pacing and just the right touch for romance. The characters in the book are wonderful. And, in particular, I like the way she develops secondary characters. More folks to cheer for. I'd definitely recommend this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 11/20/2013

    " a light fun entry in the linked paranormal series. reading out of order, but not really an issue. Sometimes you just need a book to be exactly what you expect. Now to figure out which book is "next" for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 10/26/2013

    " The first of a great trilogy. Can't wait for the next one. Jayne Ann Krentz is back with another great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 3/19/2013

    " I'm not really into magic and tree-hugging hippy stuff, but the Arcane Society novels have a wonderful mix of the exotic and romantic thriller. This story didn't disappoint, although I might have preferred a bit more romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackye | 1/22/2013

    " Paranormal powers of two people who eventually fall in love. Not so much sifi that I hated the book. Interested in reading the next book which seems to be a prequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Swearingen | 12/17/2012

    " I liked it until she got to the wordy conclusion to help explain how everything happened. It feels like a Scooby Doo episode. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelleyrae at Book'd Out | 11/17/2012

    " I found it tough at the beginning as I have not read any previous Arcane Society stories and I think it would have helped to, for background on the various factions and abilities. However once I got a few things figured it was entertaining enough, nothing special but an easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karon Lynema | 3/20/2012

    " need to read the others "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gilly | 2/3/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 5/30/2011

    " Not one of my favorites in the series but I enjoyed the read...brain candy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 4/25/2011

    " It was the first of her books that I read but I found that it was easy to read even though it was part of a longer series. I loved the plot and the pace the book set was good. The characters were cute and interesting. Overall a cute fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 3/23/2011

    " This was one of the better "arcane" novels set in current times. Does seem like psychic powers pay better than four years of college! Jack and Chloe create a believable romance and mystery. I am not as thrilled about the ending with the J&J head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teri | 3/5/2011

    " Good, but predictable and not very deep or well developed. *shrug* Entertaining for in the car, but not likely an author I'll seek out again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 2/19/2011

    " This is the first in a trilogy. FYI - each book is written by a different alias. It was hard to find the 2nd one, it is by Amanda Quick. Still waiting for the paperback version. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 1/26/2011

    " It is an easy and enjoyable read but you must suspend reality.True escapism.It borders on becoming 'comic book fare'. I suppose it is classified as a romance or alternative or para normal romance. If you enjoy her other Arcane novels ,I am sure that you will like this one also. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hbeebti | 1/24/2011

    " I like the book but for me it was kinda boring. Not enough action and not enough romance. I just thought it was ok. I liked the concept and thought that it could have been done a little better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 1/22/2011

    " The first of a great trilogy. Can't wait for the next one. Jayne Ann Krentz is back with another great read. "
