amazon barnes & noble Goodreads
Evangeline Ames is running from a killer.

She left her job and the streets of London for a slower place of life in hopes that the ordeal was behind her but the hired thug that frightened her from her sanctuary proves it hasn’t yet ended.

When Lucas Sebastian sees Evangeline running for his dangerous crystal gardens in the middle of the night. Few make it out of there alive during the day. Yet he knows she’s not only going to prevail but also thrive on his grounds.

Well, as soon as he finds his uncle’s murderer.

Then he can get around to convincing Evie of where she belongs.

Hott Review:

Crystal Gardens is a great change of pace!
What I liked: I’m not a frequent reader of para – and I don’t enjoy vampires, zombies, etc. – but, I do enjoy a good Amanda Quick novel. While there is a paranormal element, generally dealing with auras or senses, her books are just really great novels.
I really enjoyed Lucas and Evangeline (and Lucas’s siblings). Their personalities are likeable and they make the mystery so much more fun!
What I didn’t like: There were times that the story moved too quickly for me and I needed to re-read a section.
