The Arcane Society was born in turmoil, when the friendship of its two founders evolved into a fierce rivalry. Nicholas Winters’s efforts led to the creation of a device of unknown powers called the Burning Lamp. Each generation, the Winters man who inherits it is destined to develop multiple talents ― and the curse of madness. Plagued by hallucinations and nightmares, the notorious crime lord Griffin Winters is convinced he has been struck with the Winters Curse. But even as he arranges a meeting with the mysterious Adelaide Pyne, he has no idea how closely their fates are bound, for she holds the missing lamp in her possession. Their dangerous psychical experiment makes them the target of forces both inside and outside the Arcane Society. And though desire strengthens their power, their different lives will keep them apart ― if death doesn’t take them together.

This one is also after Perfect Poison, and does have appearances by the founders of the Jones Agency. As we see in the publisher's blurb, the crime boss meets a social reformer who is able to assist him with an apparent genetic issue. There is much interweaving with previous Arcane Society books, and the Sweetwater family is introduced at the end. I like it and reread it every couple of years.

Burning Lamp takes a step back in time and revisits the story of another of Nicholas Winters' descendants in search of the 'lamp' and the woman with the Dreamlight power to 'work it' in order to save him from madness as the Winter curse kicks in. A big bonus of course is, although Griffin Winters has inherited the curse, he hasn't inherited his insane ancestor's luck with women.

Up front I have to say that I am not a huge fan of historicals, and although I love Quick's Harmony series and the contemporary Arcane Society books written under her Krentz and Castle nom-de-plumes, I just didn't love this one as much. I am guessing the reason is that the constraints of behavior, in keeping with the historical rendering of the tale, also constrain the sensual intensity of the pairing in this one - I normally love the 'burn'ing physicality of Krentz/Castle's heroes.

For that reason, I didn't loveBurning Lamp, however, I still liked it and thought it a worthwhile read as the second book in the Dreamlight trilogy. And there were parts that I very much enjoyed. I thought that, even though reserved, the heroine, Adelaide Pyne, was wonderful - smart and in control and I loved her back story in the American Old West. I also loved the Joneses, the Harpers and the reference to the Sweetwaters.

So now I am looking forward (way forward) to another trip to Castle's futuristic Harmony and the conclusion of the trilogy with the final Winters' male (and mate) in Midnight Crystal (Ghost Hunters, Book 7) in August 2010.

While I am still enjoying these novels, they are becoming a little repetitive. Enjoyable if you want something easy to read. 2.75 stars

Arcane Society series is one of the best written and enjoyable series that JAK/Quick/Castle has put together.I understand why she's put a hold on doing more with 3 names and only continued with the stories using the Castle name, but it's still like losing your family. She has no plans at this time to continue, other than under Castle. (PSYCHIC SERIES)

I love the Arcane series and how Krentz has broken it up into trilogies using her own name and her pseudonyms of Castle and Quick. Each new trilogy has a connecting thread through the 19th century by Quick, 21st century by Krentz and on Harmony by Castle. The whole series is connected by the Arcane Society.

As usual, she writes a fast paced, well put together story that keeps the reader glued to the page. I have a hard time putting the book down until I have zipped through it the first time. I always read her books a second time to pick up the details.

Burning Lamp is a great read. Go for it!

I already own this book in print form. I could not resist the special price for the ebook. It was nice to reread it again. Love the arcane series.
I enjoyed this writer's style of writing, the book had plenty of interesting concepts and twists and turns. Kept me curious to the end.
