The widow Madeline Deveridge is both admired and feared by high society. Devastatingly beautiful, she is rumored to have killed her wealthy husband. Artemis Hunt is a handsome gentleman who is also a master of secret arts. His concentration on his own affairs is shattered, however, when Madeline demands his help one fog-shrouded night. Brought together by a mutual bargain - and a ghost - their bond sparks an attraction that will be far more dangerous than either suspects. Noted for her spirited performances of Amanda Quick’s novels, narrator Barbara Rosenblat captures each nuance of the two heroes’ intelligence and passion.

This story did not disappoint in any regard. The heroine, Madeline Devridge, is rumored to have killed her husband. Instead of retreating from society and it's gossip, she sets out to hire a man who can help her find out who is threatening her. Her relationship with Artemis Hunt and her eccentric aunt Bernice are modern in their approach to life and each other. The mysterious Vanzagarian Society, which permeates the story, lends enough of a sense of the paranormal to the story to satisfy this lover of everything Jayne Ann Krentz writes.
Met all my expectations and allowed me to spend many enjoyable hours.
Madeline Deveridge is known as the Wicked Widow. They say she killed her husband. The gentlemen of society have placed wagers for the man who can spend the night with her and live to tell about it. Madeline is being haunted by her late husband. She enlists the aid of Artemis Hunt to help her find him. Artemis, like her late husband, is involved in Vanza, a philosphy featured in past novels by Ms. Quick. Artemis doesn't know how Madeline has learned so many of his secrets, but he is determined to find out. Sparks fly between them and the story takes off.
This is one of the best books by Ms. Quick in a long time. If you love drama, great dialogue, the characters that capture your interest, you will want to read this book!
If you like victim heroines, this may not be the book for you, but if you like intelligent heroines, do read this story. You will enjoy it.
