Trusting a psychic flash might solve a mystery…and lead to love. Inspector Robert Court should have felt a sense of justice when a rag-and-bones man went to the gallows for murdering his cousin. Yet something has never felt right about the investigation. Robert’s relentless quest for the truth has annoyed his superintendent, landing him lowly assignments such as foiling a false medium who’s fleecing the wives of the elite. Oliver Marsh plays the confidence game of spiritualism, though his flashes of insight often offer his clients some comfort. Despite the presence of an attractive, if sneering, non-believer at a séance, he carries on—and experiences a horrifying psychic episode in which he experiences a murder as the victim. There’s only one way for Court to learn if the young, dangerously attractive Marsh is his cousin’s killer or a real psychic: spend as much time with him as possible. Despite his resolve to focus on his job, Marsh somehow manages to weave a seductive spell around the inspector’s straight-laced heart. Gradually, undeniable attraction overcomes caution. The two men are on the case, and on each other, as they race to stop a murderer before he kills again. Warning: Graphic language and hot male/male sex with light BDSM themes. Despite “Descriptions of Murderous Acts” perpetrated by an unhinged killer, resist the temptation to cover your eyes—you’ll miss the good parts!

3.5 starsOh, if only this book didn’t go that way when it came to the sexual intercourse and I would have gladly given this one a solid 4-stars...I absolutely enjoyed this book for the most part. When it comes to murder mystery, I love when there is a paranormal element that comes to play. So when O...
This book is why my "theory good, practice not" rating-slash-shelf exists. I can see the brilliance of the set up, the momentary genius in the writing, the detail that make others love the story, and yet it all falls short of my expectations. The first twenty-five pages or so were a struggle and it ...
4,5 stars.A very enjoyable read. There was a part in the middle were it dragged a bit for my taste, but I found both main characters were likable and interesting enough to carry the story.Some humor, some romance, a more or less solid crime plot and some para normal plot that doesn't interfere with ...
It's like that one Lanyon book, except I actually liked all of the characters (I seem to have that issue with Lanyon books sometimes, wherein I can't seem to like one of the MCs/LIs). Perhaps, though, that merely betrays either something about me as a reader or that I'm a female reader reading about...
