New York Times bestselling author JAYNE CASTLE Acclaimed for her novels of “delectably entertaining paranormal romantic suspense” (Booklist), the wildly popular alter ego of bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz takes off on a star-dusted excursion to a rich civilization where danger and passion are just a heartbeat away. . . . Amaryllis Lark is one of the best psychic detectives on St. Helen’s, the earth colony recently cut off from the mother planet, yet not so very different from home. . . . Lucas Trent, the rugged head of Lodestar Exploration, isn’t keen on the prim type—and from her crisp business suit to her cool evaluation of his request to bust a corporate thief, beautiful Amaryllis is excruciatingly proper. But when a bold hunch heats up into a twisting murder investigation, by-the-book Amaryllis must let her guard down and break some rules—and a red-hot love affair ignites. Now, as they race to solve a puzzle of deadly intrigue, no power—otherworldly or otherwise—can keep them apart!

I had a really hard time pushing through this. I skimmed a lot. Because Amaryllis was such a naive, prissy little sprig. Their words, not mine. It was annoying.What I did enjoy was Lucas (yum!) and Amaryllis's's's (whatevs) coworkers. And I liked the twist, because I already felt like I had solved t...
I always re-read Jayne Ann Krentz's books when my mood is down. This one is a classical Krentz (Jayne Castle is one of her pseudonyms). Fast pace, squeaky clean structure, and nice, utterly unrealistic protagonists. A typical romantic caper. Delicious. My mood is up again, so I can tackle more compl...
4*s because even a Jayne Castle that I don't love is still an entertaining book. This one didn't hold my attention as much as the Harmony books (I think I missed the dust bunnies!) but I really liked Lucas and Amaryllis and am intrigued by the set ups for the books.
This one disappointed me big-time. I've come to the realization that Jayne Castle/Krentz/Quick's voice/style just doesn't work for me because this is the 6th book of hers that I've read that I found very dull. I should note that I do not like mysteries as a rule so maybe that's my problem because th...
2.75. Fun and clearly a precursor to the Harmony books. What makes the St. Helen's world different seemed really forced (coff-tea/straw-peach, etc.) It felt like practice for the latter books (which it was). And of course, there were no dust bunnies. Nevertheless I will read Zinnia and Orchid.
