May 16, Barbara Rogers rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Mad Morelands 1 Publication Date: I have a feeling I am going to run out of superlatives before I am through reading this entire series.
I read the sixth book in the series first — because I received a review copy. I was so in awe of the writing, the story and the Moreland family in that book that I just had to go back and read all of the first books.
Boy am I glad I did. I also now have the rest of the books in cqmp reading queue so I can get them read before the next one comes out.
Leger is the second son of an Earl. Stephen met her and fell in love at least he thought it was love and then when he proudly introduced her to his family, she promptly went after his brother because he had the wealth and title. Stephen and Roderick had harsh, hurtful words and Stephen left for America. Upon his return to England, he spends several months at their country estate — Blackhope — in order to familiarize himself with the running camo the estate and its tenants.
At the end of the season, he heads to London to pick up his mother, sister, and his brother’s widow and return them home. What he finds when he arrives is chaos.
While there, he grabs onto a woman who he is sure is an accomplice to the charlatan medium. Candave whole body jolts when his hand wraps around her wrist. Olivia Moreland is the daughter of a duke. Theirs is a very large, loving, and unconventional family.
She sets him in his place quite thoroughly, but she hands him one of her business cards. You see — she is an investigator whose mission is to expose all of those fake mediums who have invaded London in the last few years. They both leave and she never expects to see or hear from him again.
Just imagine her shock when he turns up at her office the next day and asks to hire her. She travels to Mesmeriaed the following week and the strange events begin immediately. She has a vision upon arrival all of the Morelands seem to have some special ability and she is shocked. Nothing like that has ever happened to her before. The strange occurrences just continue and they keep you riveted — turning the pages as fast as you can read them.
Is the villain a real live person or a ghost? Or — is it both? I cannot recommend this book highly enough! Please check out my reviews at: Mesmerized is the story of a paranormal skeptic, Olivia Moreland, who has made it her mission to debunk fraudulent mediums and psychics but who finds herself faced with truly inexplicable phenomena.
The story was good, but I’m afraid cndace fell short of great or even very good. The biggest problem with all of the various subplots, I felt, was pacing. Most of the last half of the book dragged on as the characters rehashed the same ideas and conversations over and over again.
Mesmerized : Candace Camp :
And even after they’d gotten together, Olivia kept thinking nonsense about how Stephen didn’t really love her that I’m afraid I cmap even follow, let alone believe. There really wasn’t anything, IMO, that kept these two apart — a critical part of cam formula that separates romance from situational coupling. Nov 29, Melanie rated it liked it Shelves: Mesmerized was an intriguing blend of paranormal with historical romance and I enjoyed it quite a bit!

After his brother passed away leaving him to inherit the family title as well as the ancestral home, Stephen has returned home to discover his mother has become intertwined with a woman who claims to be able to communicate with spirits. However, things are not as they appear at Blackhope Hall and soon Olivia and Stephen are swept up in a centuries old mystery while battling their growing feelings in the present. The only person Olivia thinks the nickname applies to is her grandmother who has always told Olivia she has the sight which she claims Olivia inherited as well.
Olivia was naturally skeptical and in part started her business to discover if there was any truth to the claims.
Now, Olivia mainly uses her resources to expose fakes for what they are as she has become quite knowledgeable in their tricks. Stephen has spent czndace last ten years in America seeking his fortune abroad as a second son as well as because the woman he was in love with married his brother instead.
I admired that he tried to find the best way to expose the medium without hurting his mother. Olivia and Stephen felt a connection to each other right away although they were initially hesitant to act on it.
Stephen was immediately intrigued by the work Olivia did and quickly became enamored with her. Throughout the course of their investigation, Olivia and Stephen spent a great deal of time alone together which allowed them a chance to speak freely and get to know one another in a more intimate setting.

When their relationship takes a turn for the physical, it develops quickly and is quite steamy which I enjoyed. For me, the only downside to their relationship was the character Pamela who I felt added an unnecessary jealousy plotline. Both of these plots were interesting and I enjoyed watching things unfold, however I did get confused at times about what was real and what was fake.
Overall though, the paranormal aspects of candacce book were very well done. Candace Camp’s books are published in Turkey too and I had good time while reading them.
What I expected was a good historical romance. What Mesmefized found was a good historical romance AND good paranormal mesmerlzed. I love that part, because ghosts, evil spirits are always good for me. In some parts I spooked too, Olivia is a member of “Mad Morelands” and her job is uncloack the mediums’ tricks. This is how she met Stephan.
Stephan’s mother is in pain and finds peace with mediums, but she doesn’t accept that they are frauds. To prove that Stephan hires Olivia. And capm they got together they started to dream strange things, strange like people lived years ago in that house.
And they had to defeat that evil spirit. If there was only historical parts, I may get bored. But with paranormal parts it got better.
Much to my surprise, I greatly enjoyed this book! Historical fiction is not my favorite, but the characters in this story were very easy to relate to.
I am definitely going to continue with this series.

Review: Mesmerized by Candace Camp
The story started perfectly. Actually, the whole idea of a man and a woman who is skeptical when it comes to paranormal stuffs joined forces to expose a fraud, and ended mesmedized exposing more than they bargained for. How Olivia and Stephen met was amazingly done. Actually, most of the scenes should’ve been great but I found that the writing isn’t for me.
