Jayne Castle Å 0 summary

To the Preserve until that one fateful night with Slade Attridge a night neither of them would forgetNow fifteen years later both have returned to the island Charlotte to take over her late aunt's antiues shop and Slade to fill the police chief's position Able to read auras Charlotte senses something amiss in Slade b. I don t know if it s relief that the Harmony series isn t degenerating after all or simply a better story but I lost myself to this book and enjoyed every minute It s not a complete win but it was enough of one that I m looking forward to the next one alreadyI liked Charlotte from the start She s diffident in ways that most Krentz heroines aren t and her power is subtler to the point that people dismiss her pretty much outright I liked how well she puts up with that and how she takes true joy in bringing the perfect gifts to the people in her life And yes rainbow auras is every bit as silly as dreamlight but for some reason it didn t bug me nearly as much Maybe because it had clear rules that weren t being forever extended into the next panacea for whatever the story wantedFor his part Slade was a bit damaged than is typical of a Krentz hero He s facing some career ending blowback from a previous job and struggling to find his way to a new path in life As at least one other character notes explicitly however he s got the protective thing written in his DNA so I couldn t help attaching to him early and deeply He was maybe a little stubborn in his self immolation but nothing Charlotte couldn t snap him out ofI get the sense that I should be very grateful that I skipped the whole Looking Glass Trilogy This is the last book of it and from what I can tell I m glad I missed the other two What little hints we get of it sound deeply silly You can dress it up as automatons all you like but in the end it s all killer dolls Creepy sure but not really interesting to meI do like the setup for Rainshadow island That gives me some hope for the rest of the series as it looks pretty tightly bound there going forward I hope that turns out as well as it seems from the setup but we ll see I supposeSo this is a solid three and a half stars throughout and it gets a rounding boost for not having any dreamlight in it I can t wait for the next and hope it keeps up the ualityA note about Steamy Relatively light steam I think Two explicit sex scenes but the second was both short and cut to black pretty uick I actually liked how their intimate life played out and how it had some serious back and forth

summary Canyons of Night

Canyons of Night

There are as many mysteries aboveground on the world of Harmony as there are underground The island of Rainshadow is the setting Canyons of ePUB #10003 for one of the greatest of those secrets the privately owned woods known only as the PreserveGrowing up on Rainshadow Charlotte Enright knew better than to ever go in. Reading KrentzuickCastle is something like buying a one pound assortment of candy and finding that they are all chocolate covered cherries If one happens to like the flavor which I do this is not really a problem but I admit reading a bunch in a row does the author a bit of a disservice The basic flavor of a KC romance plot might be shorthanded as Beauty and the Beast or My Bodyguard the heroines gradually become kick ass over time as the market has permitted or demanded but of course never so than their heroes No Freddies here alasThe SF nal series under the Jayne Castle penname beginning with After Dark 2000 is the successful in terms of genre cross over with SF than the earlier series the eponymous Zinnia Orchid and Amaryllis the later published works are a sort of universe reboot of the earlier Both or less transpose the contemporary Pacific Northwest into SF nalized colony planet settings with psi powers but the series beginning with After Dark adds ancient alien abandoned cities and artifacts to the mix much to its benefit Romantic suspense with psi might be another thumbnail description Of the three latest of this series I picked up from the library this past weekend to treat my reading blahs I found one shelved in the general fiction section one in the Romance section and one in the SF section All the same series mind you KC readers need to be persistent and wide ranging in their shelf searches She s actually done trilogies in her Arcane Series with one volume as historical the second as contemporary and the third as SF which amuses me vastly and likely gives her publisher fits Obsidian Prey takes place in her urban colony world setting with alien maguffins Canyons of Night and The Lost Night move offshore to an island in Puget Sound the Amber Sea Castle does rather a lot of the call a rabbit a smerp style of SF writing but every once in a while she slips in a real smerpThe books are probably not for the rabid sorts of SF purists but they did fix my reading block as I shot through three of them in two days Reassuring and I would read them again sometime when I m in a similar mood so I ll give them a 4 stars ratingGoodreads does not permit joint reviews so I ll stick this all somewhat randomly under Canyons of Night But I d aim readers new to the series or author to the first Harmony novel After Dark for startersTa L

Ut that doesn't stop her from wanting him again That is as long as his dust bunny deputy keeps his paws off her merchandiseHiding a psi injury Slade is afraid of his powerful desire for Charlotte But a series of increasingly violent crimes draws them closer together and into the darkness at the heart of the Preserve.. I love Jayne Ann Krentz and her other aliases Jayne Castle and Amanda uick However I normally think less of the Jayne Castle books However this is an exception as it is an offshoot of the Arcane Society series which I really really likeI m not too fond of the cover though as I don t think it represents the character wellThis story takes place entirely on a uaint exotic island Books that do this appeal to me I like the isolation motif where everything is confined to a limited area like a lonely haunted Victorian manor or as in this case an islandOnce again we have psi weapons and crystals and the odd dust bunny Very fun

    I've come to like best those Harmony stories which are set on Rainshadow Island Particularly I like the characters of Charlotte and Slade along with the dust bunny Rex Not a great book just good readingeta I really dislike the covers though; all those tight black leather pants Artistic dept seemed to have a butt fetish or something
