Jayne Castle

Having been a fan of Jayne Castle from the very first book I love her Ghost Hunter books and her Harmony books so when I saw a new book by her I had to grab, as the world that she has created is one of the best FF&P worlds that I have read, what I didn’t realize was that this book is the third in a series that crosses all her pen names and times. The first book Fired Up is written under the name Jayne Ann Krentz, and is set in 21st century Seattle and Las Vegas, the second book The Burning Lamp was written under the name Amanda Quick and is set in Late Victorian England. All three books are about the descendants of Nicholas Winter and a curse. The nice thing about this series is that you don’t need to read the other books to understand what is going on.

Adam Winters has enough responsibility as the new head of the local Ghost Hunter Guild without being saddled with the family curse. He’s convinced his recent nightmares and hallucinations will lead to him becoming a psychic rogue—unless he can find a stolen relicand a woman who can read dreamlight.

Marlowe Jones rides into his life on a motorcycle and with a dust bunny at her side. Though a descendant of the rival Arcane family, she’s just what Adam needs: a psychic private investigator and dreamlight reader extraordinaire.

Together, amid the glowing catacombs and steamy underground jungles of Harmony, Adam and Marlowe must break the curse, save the entire underworld—and fight a passion that could destroy them both…

Adam and Marlowe are a pairing that from the minute they meet you know are going to be awesome together and a great read. Adam is the new head of the local Guild that is one of the most corrupt and enemies that would gladly see him dead, as they want his job, on top of that he has this nasty thing with his psi senses going on. Marlowe is the new head of Jones & Jones and is looking for a stolen artifact.

With the family history of these two you know that the sparks are going to be amazing and they are. The really isn’t much of a conflict between the two of them as they both instinctually know that they are a perfect match, even if one of them isn’t quite sure about it. They major conflict that is in this book is the mystery of the burning lamp and also who is trying to kill Adam.

I enjoyed reading these two, as it was a simple romance book, with a great mystery. It made for a great lazy Sunday morning read which is when I read it. If you like a light paranormal story with a great romance and story line than you can’t go wrong with this one.

Grade: B+
