"JAK delivers a wonderful story"
A long time (nearly two decades) fan of Jayne Ann Krentz
and her various names she writes under, I have found her
paranormal romances to be the best work she is doing of
late. Her historicals and contemporary romances have
become a little too pat, too polished; she seems to lack
that fire of love for her story. But in the Ghost Hunter
series, book #5, she is back and as good as ever. She
really rocks! Yes, JAK has her formula, but it's one that
works and it's like coming home to an old friend. I
thought Orchid, Amaryllis and Zinnia were some of her top
works, and the Harmony series matches that.
Harmony, the distant earth colony planet sees people very
much like us, same needs and desires. Only, they have
evolved with psychic senses, though in some it's a raging
power that needs control; in the Prisms, it's the control
that allows the others to focus their abilities. The
teaming is what makes a pair strong, not only does it
produce a more concentrated refining of their powers, it
can really lead to sizzling sex in the after burn!
Sierra McIntyre's hot on a story about the disappearances
of retired or homeless "hunters". This brings her into a
clash with Guild boss, John Fontana. In order to get to
the bottom of the dangerous game going on within his own
Guild, he must marry Sierra, and combine their powers to
solve the dark mystery. It's purely business, yeah,
right. Okay, the story is been there done that, typical
JAK, but it's good to know she still delivers a wonderful
Sorry, I am a sucker for the dust bunnies.

Everything is different underground. Just ask the residents of Harmony, a futuristic world where alien catacombs can lead you astray - and where psychic senses spark out-of-this-world passion...
Reporter Sierra McIntyre's stories on Crystal City's ghost hunters - and their mysterious guild - have earned her tabloid a bit of respect. And they've allowed her to clothe her dust bunny companion Elvis in rock-and-roll style. It helps that she has mega-rez intuition to fall back on...
Especially when she interviews Ghost Hunter Guild Boss John Fontana about the disappearances of retired, homeless hunters. She doesn't want to trust the physically and psychically powerful man, but her senses - and Elvis - give her the green light. To uncover the conspiracy within his own organization, Fontana proposes...marriage. And though it's purely a business arrangement, there is nothing pure about the attraction that sizzles between them...
