I love the Jayne Castle Harmony series. Light reading, fun stories, and a good balance between hero and heroine. Fun reads.

Jayne Castle, Jayne Anne Krentz Amanda Quick..all the same. But I used to love reading them and still do reread them all. But now the new books are sadly sad. No joy nothing to make you grin. Boring sad people in boring sad stories. Who is writing these...I think a computer is setting up the plots and the publishers printing it just for money. I may buy the next one, may being the important word.
My advise...get it from the library or second hand from the thrift store.

HASH(0xaa3d521c) out of 5 stars Pleasant enough, but something bugs me Sept. 11 2012
By Joy-read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I had to re-enter my review, cuz Amazon couldn't seem to "take" my edits. I lost the comments, but mention them in this review.

Just barely four stars. It was good, but not her best. As always with Castle (aka Krentz, Quick, etc), two likable but lonely misfits fall in love, forever sharing a tight bond. This reliable author delivers mild suspense on a stormy island setting.

The cover art is misleading. Rachel wears a leather jacket, but not the batgirl outfit.

The romance: I sympathized with the hero, Harry Sebastian, who felt he could never have a loving relationship due to his extreme psychic talent, and had been hastily dumped when his wife learned about it. In fact, Harry Sebastian is somewhat reminiscent of Harry Trevalyn in Absolutely, Positively in terms of how they both got dumped because they lose control after psychic burnout. The relationship building between Harry and Rachel was okay, but it fell a bit flat. It needed more development. Not to be snide, but Harry and Rachel's relationships with the dust bunny got almost as much air time, or so it seemed. Also, there was not enough tension, sexual or romantic -- the HEA came too easily. The sex came too soon. There are two sex scenes. The first one was okay, but they both seemed somewhat mechanical, not passionate. Krentz can deliver better passion.

The suspense: I felt no strong sense of suspense. I was never worried about Rachel, even though a nutcase was after her. This is mainly due to the fact that I understand how romances must end, with the requisite HEA, but also because I have read enough novels by Castle / Krentz / Quick / Glass / James / Taylor to be able to predict how her scenes will play out.

However, I WAS curious about what happened to Rachel during her "lost night" in the dangerous Preserve. Things got more interesting when Rachel, Harry, and the dust bunny went into the Preserve. I especially liked the scene when the monstrous octopus thing attacked.

I heart the adorable yet ferociously protective dust bunnies, like Darwina. They inhabit the entire series, and the Harmony series, each bunny having a quirky but similar character. What's odd, though, is how they carry things all day. In the prior book, Rex carried a purse. In this book, Darwina carries a doll. They have six feet, but still...how awkward for the animals. How do they run, climb, hunt, etc?

This book is part of the author's paranormal line, something I enjoy occasionally. No vampires -- except for psychic vampires who steal your psychic energy. No monsters, only psychic monsters. No shape shifters or werewolves, etc. Castle's paranormals are light reading. For a darker story, try her early works, originally written in the guise of Amanda Glass. For example, see Shield's Lady.

Something that bugs me a little: In nearly every single book -- and I've read dozens and dozens -- Krentz inserts a same sex couple ( as with this book) or a gay individual, but here's the kicker: They are NEVER flawed. Always urbane, gentle, talented, protective, loving, wise, compassionate, heroic. What are the chances? In fact, the chances are high that-- if her cumulative cast of characters represented real life -- I would have come across at least one character who was gay and ALSO hypersensitive or super-possessive, ultra-ambitious, criminally minded, or at least just plain selfish, slobbish, or stupid. After all, we're all human. I'd be just as irritated if an author was constantly pushing the benefits of wheat grass, or extolling virginity, or pumping religious propaganda.

Note: in the deleted review, a reader commented that there IS a criminally minded gay character in Copper Beach (Dark Legacy Novel). He's not the villain, but he IS crooked. My mistake. Any others? Another reader asked if there are gay villains in ANY romances. Yes, in Outlander, by Gabaldon, and in Golden Girl, by Joan Wolf, etc.

Having said that, it was a fun read, even if it was similar to other books. This author writes well, with flowing dialogue and no distracting grammos or typos. I have read just about everything by Jayne Ann Krentz, under all her pseudonyms. I tend to prefer her stand-alone titles, books that are not part of a series, with some exceptions. Some of my favorite books by this author: Wildest Hearts, Joy, Grand Passion, and in historical romance, Ravished .

(I also liked the Eclipse Bay series, Absolutely Positively, All Night Long, Witchcraft, Family Man, Sweet Starfire, etc. It's impossible to go wrong with Krentz, but some books are better than others.)

HASH(0xaa3e1318) out of 5 stars I'm so confused, please help! Oct. 14 2012
By tiredofpc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've been a huge fan of Jayne Castle, Jayne Anne Krentz, Amanda Quick, and I'm sure, other pseudonyms yet to be born, for many, many years. Love her books! That said, I've just finished reading Lost Night, which bears the note on the bottom of the front cover, "First Time in Print." The book is set on Rainshadow Island. Ok, book read, not one of her best (see other 3 star reviews), and I concur that there seems to be a lot missing. Late in the book there is mention of Harry's brother Jake Sebastian having to track down the Whitcomb widow, as she is the great granddaughter of North, who may know where the other two stones are on the island, and bring her to Rainshadow. Logically, the book about Drake and the Widow Whitcomb would be number two in the series, right? So now I'm picking up Canyons of the Night, "Book Three of the Looking Glass Series" and it's a book I read previously, before what would appear to be book one, and what ever happened to book 2, Drake and the Widow Whitcomb?
Frankly, I'm really tired of the confusing, out of sequence, back and forth stuff going on. Book 3 of the trilogy is published, but where is book 2 and why in the world does it have to be this difficult? Book two of the series isn't even listed on Amazon, so we know it doesn't exist! I've been reading this author since the 80's, and it didn't used to be this difficult. Please, can we go back to the prior excellent character and story development, continue the humor and the romance but have some sense of direction and logical development?

HASH(0xaa3e1390) out of 5 stars It's fascinating how differently a book reads for different people. Sept. 6 2012
By Anne Ivy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I liked "Canyons of the Night" and was eagerly awaiting the second installment of the series. Unlike the previous six reviewers, I found this book nowhere near as entertaining as its predecessor. First, there is a noticeable lack of interesting secondary characters, which has been a strength of Castle/Krentz/Quick. Charlotte and Slade appear at the beginning, and again at the end, but in between it's pretty much just Rachel and Harry. And they talk. They talk a LOT. There would be several pages of discussion, generally explaining the backstory for anyone who hadn't read the previous Harmony books, or explaining the history of the Sebastian family, or explaining how the Preserve is the way it is and what's happening to it and what can be done about it. If the two of them aren't having a conversation, there are large chunks of descriptive passages.

The "romance" angle is so muted as to make the book not technically a "romance" at all. There are many mysteries published with as much of a love interest as in "The Lost Night," although admittedly mysteries don't go in for actual sex scenes (which I tend to skip over anyway, and as there are only the two, if I recall correctly, I didn't miss much).

For sure Ms. C/K/Q has done a first-rate job inventing an imaginary world and making it truly attractive for the reader. I wish I could live on Harmony! And have a dust bunny, naturally. Big, fat, lazy cats are not at all the same thing. >;^>

HASH(0xaa3e1084) out of 5 stars Another disappointing JAK book Oct. 20 2012
By PamelaJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been a JAK fan since she wrote for Harlequin. I'll read anything she writes. Unfortunately, that's the only reason I continue to read her books. Well, I guess another reason is that I keep hoping she'll produce something exciting, new and interesting as she did in books she wrote in the 90s. She was one of the first to write paranormal romance. Now, she seems to be more interested in being mainstream. I didn't feel the romance between Harry and Rachel. Harmony was a cool, original concept at least when she first started writing her Ghosthunter books and the precursor books Amaryllis, Orchid and Zinnia. In this last installment, there was nothing original or fresh going on. In fact, she even had one of the characters drive an SUV! I mean, what's that all about? In previous books, they drove Sliders and Floats! If you're a fan, you'll read this book. If you aren't...well, don't bother.

HASH(0xaa3e1420) out of 5 stars Losing me... Nov. 20 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This one was okay. It had all the staples of a Jayne Castle novel. Intelligent heroine. Alpha male. But it is getting old. These books are all very similar. And well, the earlier ones were much better!
