REVIEW

"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 story.

Sorry, I am a sucker for the dust bunnies.

SUMMARY

**2008 PEARL WINNER - BEST FUTURISTIC ROMANCE**

**A PNR Staff Recommended Read**

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...
