Summary

Edie Brown has gone through life as if she were almost invisible, barely remembered.  Even after becoming a doctor, her own patients and colleagues have a hard time recalling who she is. 
So when she is invited to interview for a position at the prestigious medical center, the Aurel Foundation, Edie can't begin to understand how or why.  And once there, she can't shake the impression that something is terribly wrong about the Foundation and the resort-like mountain community where it's situated. 
Beginning with the Foundation's disturbing, enigmatic chauffeur, James, puzzling events quickly add up, and Edie starts piecing together the startling real reason she has been brought there, one that goes beyond ordinary science and medicine, and one that is tied to her own mysterious past. 
She finds herself being inexorably drawn into a world of myth, magic, and monsters, a world that leads to chaos, imprisonment, and violence. 
An Amber Stone, Set in Silver is the second in the Exiles of Aur series.  Like all the books, it can be read as a stand-alone, though the books chronologically follow each other, and often characters from earlier books make subsequent appearances. It scores in the mild range for sensuality and language, with a couple of scenes containing mild to moderate violence.

    #1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey’s wonderfully delightful sequel to Say You Love Me. 
    What was to be a grand adventure for Melissa MacGregor—an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the whirl of the London social scene—seems to pale before the promise in the passionate gaze of Lincoln Ross Burnett. Though they exchange but a few words before parting after a chance encounter on her grandfather's lands, Melissa instantly knows this bold stranger is her destiny, while Lincoln realizes his heart has been claimed forever and he will never be complete until Melissa MacGregor is his bride. 
    But there are serious obstacles impeding the well-smitten Viscount Cambury's pursuit of glorious romance: sixteen of them—all big and brawny, six named Ian and all named MacFearson. The bane of Lincoln's youth, Melissa's stifling, disapproving uncles are now determined to rob him of his newfound happiness. Yet he is equally resolved to confront the peril—and to pursue his exquisite obsession all the way to London...and to the ends of the earth, if necessary.
