A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mysterious manuscript he's hunted for over five hundred years. He never expected a young student librarian could be the key to unlock its secrets, nor could he have predicted the danger she would attract.

Now he and Beatrice De Novo follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, though the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation hundreds of years in the making.

History and the paranormal collide in A Hidden Fire, the first book in the bestselling Elemental Mysteries series and semifinalist in the Kindle Book Review's Best Indie Books of 2012.


  • A “best read.”

    Wonderful story with unforgettable characters. One of the best I have read. If you are looking for the usual “paranormal story,” you won’t find it here. I was very happy to have found and read this book.

    What a great story! I cannot wait to read the next in series. Giovanni is a multi-layered piece of chocolate that you keep unwrapping to get to the next yummy part. I have always since I was a little girl had a romantic love story in my head/dreams featuring a handsome vampire....my goodness, so far this story would be it! I am in love...
  • A very good series!

    I read the whole series in about two and a half days. I just couldn't put the books down! One of the things I really enjoyed about these books is that I found B's emotional outbursts to be much, but there are people out there who are emotional and she acts just like them. The characters I found believable and a joy to be around. The only negative thing I can say about Ms Hunters writing style, is some of it is repetitive. But the again, when I speak I do use the same words over and over again!
  • A true keeper!

    This book is one of those treasures that compelled me to immediately purchase the whole series so that I could immerse myself in The Elemental Mysteries universe. Lovable characters, engaging dialog, unique plot lines, intriguing mystery, and more! And to top it off, even my husband fell in love with this series. Elizabeth Hunter's books will remain in our permanent elibrary, that for sure!
  • AMAZING!!!!

    I loved it. It was mysterious with a good plot with many twists to keep you interested and guessing. The romance was good and didn't feel to slow or rushing but, just right for the storyline.
