The Arcane Society Series – Background:
Founded in the 1600s by Sylvester Jones, The Arcane Society is a secret society for those who possess paranormal talents. Member talents include the ability to view and manipulate auras, parahunters with supernaturally quick reflexes, human lie detectors, dream influencers, sirens, and many more. Unfortunately, with these special abilities comes the temptation to use them for evil. Fortunately for the rest of us, the Jones Family forms a private investigation agency to fight the villains and to regulate and register everyone with paranormal abilities.
The Society hides their powers from outsiders, as well as tries to protect their own dark secrets. From museums and collections full of strange artifacts and relics to a research facility founded to study and document psychic phenomena in a scientific manner, the Society is always up to something exciting. Both men and women are members of the Society, which leads to some natural conflicts, as well as some steamy partnerships.

Most of the books in The Arcane Society Series can be read as stand-alones or in any order that you prefer. Many of the main characters reappear in other books as supporting characters, but they are introduced in such a way that readers who are unfamiliar with them can still enjoy the story.
