Budding illusionist Anna Van Housen is on top of the world: after scoring a spot on a prestigious European vaudeville tour, she has moved to London to chase her dream and to join an underground society for people like her with psychic abilities. Along with her handsome beau, Cole Archer, Anna is prepared to take the city by storm.
But when Anna arrives in London, she finds the group in turmoil. Sensitives are disappearing and, without a suspect, the group’s members are turning on one another. Could the kidnapper be someone within the society itself—or has the nefarious Dr. Boyle followed them to London?
As Cole and Anna begin to unravel the case and secrets about the society are revealed, they find themselves at odds, their plans for romance in London having vanished. Her life in danger and her relationship fizzling, can Anna find a way to track down the killer before he makes her his next victim—or will she have to pay the ultimate price for her powers?
Set in Jazz-Age London, this alluring sequel to Born of Illusion comes alive with sparkling romance, deadly intrigue, and daring magic.
My teaser, from 21% in the egalley:
I melt. I have no defenses against someone who is so very handsome and so very sincere and who cares about me so very much. But I can't help but feel that coming to London has somehow changed our relationship, and not necessarily for the better.Happy release day to Born of Deception! Admittedly, I haven't read the first book (I KNOW, shame on meeee), but I'll be reading it later this week and then I'll be on to this one! I love this teaser too, because I started reading the paragraph and thought, "Awww," but then it changed. Awesome. :)
I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! :) Happy Tuesday!
