Relationships are challenging enough for most single over-thirty women. For level ten parasensitive Clare Lancaster, they’re a minefield. The elite few who know her secret call her a human lie detector, and any falsehood, no matter how subtle or well hidden, sets her blood racing. Over the years, Clare has come to accept that someone with her extraordinary talents is unlikely to find a suitable mate. And she’s even resigned herself to the fact that everyone, to one degree or another, hides behind a façade. Including her recently deceased brother-in-law. When Clare finds the body of Brad McAllister, the golden child of Stone Canyon, Arizona, the posh residents turn a suspicious eye in her direction. As Archer Glazebrook’s daughter, Clare is shielded from the law, but not the gossip. It seems that meeting the half sister and family whom she did not know until seven months ago was a mistake. Now her father summons her from California to play a role in his business empire, and Clare doesn’t intend on making the same mistake twice. But after meeting Jake Salter, Archer’s “business consultant,” she is convinced that things aren’t what they seem. Salter’s careful conversation walks a delicate line between truth and deception, revealing and resisting. Something sparks and sizzles between them - something more than the usual electricity between a man and a woman. Caught in a dizzying storm of secrets, lies, and half-truths, Jake and Clare will plunge into an investigation that demands every bit of their special gifts. Together, they must overcome their mutual distrust in order to unravel a web of conspiracy and murder.

WHITE LIES is the second book in the Arcane series. It is a contemporary romantic suspense book. Clare Landcaster is a high level parasensitive who is a human lie detector. Because of her abilities, she has a difficult time trusting people. She has come to Arizona to meet with her father and half siblings. At her father's home, she meets Jake Salter an Arcane business consultant, who she can tell has secrets. The two hit it off (reluctantly on Clare's part). Soon, Jake's undercover investigation crosses with attempts on Clare's life. As the two investigate, they also end up learning each others secrets and falling in love.

I really like the relationship between Clare and Jake. Clare is a strong woman who has been wounded by her desire to protect her family. The book is filled with misunderstandings and mistrust between all the characters. This is not a romance where the conflict is dominated by misunderstandings, rather it is the other characters who don't trust one another. As Clare states, everyone lies and this book is filled with people who are lying for various reasons. I have a great fondness for Jake who is determined but funny and considerate. The relationship between Clare and Jake remains the focus of the book even as the suspense story progresses.

The book also introduces one of my favorite characters in the series: Fallon Jones. HIs book is simply amazing but there are several books before that one.

The writing in the book is clean and straightforward and thus the suspense is sustained throughout the book. Although this is the second book in the series, this book can be read independent of that book. The Arcane books can be read independently, however, there is a continuing story that a dedicated reader will find satisfying as the plot unfolds in this and the subsequent books.
Jayne Anne Krentz has taken her alter egos Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle and mixed the styles into a new Contemporary novel. The Arcane Society first presented in the Amanda Quick series has been brought to the present. The powers of the sensitives is remenisent of the powers in her St Helens Trilogy. They work very well togather and give us an interesting read.

Clare Lancaster is the illigetimate daughter of a real estate magnate. She became intimate with her biological relatives about 8 months ago. An e-mail from her sister brought her to Arizona to help Elizabeth escape an abusive husband. It seems the Glazebrooke family are members of the Arcane Society which measures the psychic power of the members. Clare and her mother are also members. Clare is a 10 on the psychic scale and can tell if you are telling a lie she is considered an exotic because of her power and abilities.
She is a human lie detector.

Jake Salter is an undercover agent for J&J (Jones & Jones)Detective agency. The Agency works to protect sensitives and root out any evil cabels that might form. He is working for Clare's dad. When Elizabeth's husband was shot and killed 6 months ago the clairvoyants at the Society found no connection to the Cabel that Jake is hunting. Jake is a 10 on the psychic scale an exotic with hunter powers.

Now Jake realizes he has been deliberately led down the wrong paths. Clare and Jake are very attracted to each other and the term running hot really means their powers mesh and open each other up to more sensitive revelations. Since Clare can tell if he is lying Jake decides to ask for her help on the investigation.

Almost immediately Clare has two close calls. She finally admits to Jake that she thinks Brad, Elizabeth's husband intended to murder her the night he was killed. Clare has thought this ever since she was the one to find him. Coming back to Arizona has just opened up the bag again. Now both Jake and Clare know there is someone who knows the truth and they have to find them first.

I enjoyed the book, it reminded me very much of an Amanda Quick book. I did like it and I would want to read it but I'm not sure I would pay $25 for it.
