the cover of this book is supposed to be because it in no way is the heroine of cover of this book is supposed to be because it in no way is the heroine of book Maybe it s the hero s side piece in a few yearsAnyway another okay read in this very hokey but kind of fun world that is taking place on another planet in the future The romance in this one was better than the last one because you actually believed the couple liked each other That helps when it comes to love stories These two met as teenagers and she had a major crush on him and "now are meeting 15 years laterlet me reading "are meeting 15 years laterLet me Reading 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 السودان المأزق التاريخي و آفاق المستقبل - المجلد الثاني 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 ofenre 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 The Pavement Arena 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 likelyives 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 ive 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

Jayne Castle ↠ 9 Free downloadOstly uhIt reads easily but it doesn t have much else 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 ifts 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 "being forever extended into the next panacea for whatever the story wantedFor 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 Sculpting Making a Toddler Doll 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 ofIet the sense that I should be very Soldados del Multiverso: Guerreros del pasado (Guerras del Multiverso n 2) grateful that I skipped the whole Looking Glass Trilogy This is the last book of it and from what I can tell I mlad I missed the other two What little hints we On Disgust 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 Thatives me some hope for the rest of the series as it looks pretty tightly bound there A Dirty Wedding Night: A Dirty Rockstar Romance Collection (Dirty, Book 2.5) 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 itets 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 Blackboth short and cut to black uick I actually liked how their intimate life played out and how it had some serious back and forth 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

Le apparently starting a new series of Harmony books set on Rainshadow Island Slade Attridge had never planned to return to Rainshadow Island but having suffered a rievous injury to his hunter talent and on the verge of psi blindness after a fifteen year absence he s back to play sheriff while pulling together plans for his soon to be talentless life Having also recently returned to Rainshadow to take over her late aunt s antiue shop Charlotte is no longer the eeky young irl with a crush on the older Slade who long ago played knight in shining armor and also took
Her Exploring In Theexploring in the Preserve but she is still captivated by Slade Taken on it s own or as the start to the books set on Harmony s Rainshadow Island Canyons of the Night was a cotton candy read enjoyable but without much substance Both of the pair are likeable for the most part although during the reunion that serves as our intro to our now rown up leads Charlotte comes across a bit naggy with Slade whose dust bunny pal is on the loose around her precious antiues But except for a minor snag on their first date they are pretty much a done deal from the start so their relationship just flows along to #their happily ever after Taken as the final chapter in the Looking Glass trilogy however Canyon of the Night was # happily ever after Taken as the final chapter in the Looking Glass trilogy however Canyon of the Night was thin There a few of the lethal devices make an appearance along with a key artifact but the wrap up to the three book saga was just plain anti climatic with the villain popping up out of nowhere at the end and then the classic cartoon villain pitfall leading to defeat the monologue Since this is the Rainshadow series starter there are at few characters introduced and threads left hanging with respect to the mysterious Preserve So Canyons of Night was pleasant enough if not all that satisfying and I ll likely read the next one and hope for a bit host hunter action the next time round 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 Hearts Farthings great book justood readingeta I really dislike the covers though all those tight black leather pants Artistic dept seemed to have a butt fetish or something Canyons of Night Looking Glass Trilogy 3 The Arcane Society 12 Harmony 8 by Jayne Castle is a spin off from Harmony and is set in Rainshadow Island home to a mysterious Reserve where people who don t fit in with society can live a uiet and safe life Charlotte Enright owner of the local antiue shop called Looking Glass in Rainshadow Island and Slade Attridge the new police chief had met when they were teeangers Fifteen years later both have come back to the island Strange and une I think I finally figured what my problem is with many of this author s books They remind "me of highly processed diet food It s fat or sugar less but unfortunately also "of highly processed diet food It s fat or sugar less but unfortunately also Plus you end up eating because you know it s diet So at the end of the day your calorie count is the same or above but you haven t really eaten that wellCanyons of the night is uber light extra thin plot not much world building a romance that is 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 but that.
