Being called creepy can be hard on your self-esteem - even for an attractive, independent woman like Raine Tallentyre. That’s what happened when she made the mistake of revealing her paranormal abilities, bringing her most recent romantic relationship to a hasty end. Her aunt Vella, a gifted but troubled soul, told her years ago to keep her talents a secret. And now that poor Aunt Vella - her last blood relative - has died, Raine has resigned herself to a lonely life. But when she journeys to Shelbyville, Washington, to clear out her aunt’s house - trying to ignore the locals’ comments about the “witch” and the “crazy lady” - Raine’s highly developed sensitivity leads her to a horrifying discovery: a young woman, bound and terrified, in a basement storage locker. The victim has survived, and the culprit is on the loose. Without warning, a new man enters Raine’s life - investigator Zack Jones. Surprisingly, Zack isn’t repelled by her powers: in fact, he has his own. While Raine hears voices, Zack sees visions, and within hours of their meeting, Raine experiences an intense, thrilling intimacy - mental, emotional, and physical - that she never dared to expect. There’s one complication, however: Zack Jones is working for the Arcane Society. This secret organization, dedicated to the study of paranormal phenomena, shattered Raine’s family with an act of betrayal long ago, and she’s not about to trust them now. As a killer makes her his target, and a cabal of psychic criminals known as Nightshade operates in the shadows surrounding them, Raine and Zack must rely not only on their powerful abilities but on each other as well.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey | 2/15/2014

    " This was a pretty good story not a favorite but riveting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/15/2014

    " Woman with paranormal abilities helps solve cold case crimes "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ms bookjunkie | 2/14/2014

    " I enjoyed the story while hating the paperback format. (The make-my-hands-cramp stupid venti mmpb.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly Morey | 2/12/2014

    " This is a cute summer read. Raine has psychic powers but is not a member of the Arcane Society because her father was thrown out years before. She meets up with Zach Jones a member of the Society assigned to watch her. They become mixed up in murder and mayhem, while trying to figure out what happened to Raine's Aunt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 2/4/2014

    " As I said before whatever name she writes under - be it Jayne Ann Krentz, Amanda Quick, Stephanie James, or Jane Bently - she always hits a home run with me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Noell | 2/1/2014

    " I loved this story, the mystery part had me guessing until the very end and the romance was hot. But I must admit that I'm a die hard Jayne Ann Krentz fan I love everything she writes under all her different names. I think I must have every book she has every written or close to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 1/23/2014

    " This is an interesting series - though the writing is not great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cam | 1/22/2014

    " Love it! My favorite along with White Lies, it definitely sizzles and burns! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 1/20/2014

    " Raine's family have steered clear of the Arcane Society because the society destroyed Raine's childhood. Now someone is killing "witches," and Raine needs the help of Zack Jones from the Arcane Society. SIZZLE AND BURN is more unpredictable than most of Krentz's popular novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/20/2014

    " I really liked this book. I have read other books by Jayne Ann Krentz but I had not read previous Arcane Society books. Now that I read this, I would like to read the others. I have recommended it to others I know would appreciate the content. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley | 12/9/2013

    " another compelling story in the Arcane Society series. I loved Raine and Zack. The villain is terrifyingly portrayed. Expect a few chills when getting into his head! I am fascinated by all the different kinds of psychic talents explored in these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Minde Briscoe | 11/24/2013

    " Enjoyable. I'll keep reading this series, but there's nothing to rave about like in some books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephy | 11/16/2013

    " Intrigue and romance work well together. Good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat | 10/5/2013

    " This book didnt work as a mystery or romance. Kinda tired of the Arcance Society theme too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie Bongiorno | 11/29/2012

    " I was scared when right in the beginning an aura camera was mentioned, I thought it was going to be like the first one again... It wasn't there were different gifts in this one, but it still felt very much the same. Wish we would hear about the previous couples. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/8/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 7/7/2012

    " I enjoyed reading more about the Arcane Society, and all its members with paranormal talents. The talents are real ones that people have, they are not made up. The plot is kind of predictable, but it's a fast paced and fun read. Something good for when you are in the mood for something light. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth (Liz) | 5/23/2012

    " I enjoyed this light read, it did have a plot and interesting characters, if at bit of the wall premise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mollie *scoutrmom* | 2/25/2012

    " I'm in love with the Arcane series. The paranormal element is minor in the scheme of an excellent contemporary romance. The only thing I did not like was how quickly the heroine ended up in bed with the hero. "
