Running Hot by Jayne Ann Krentz

I love Krentz's 'Arcane Society' books. Her latest in this series is the contemporary "Running Hot". This series is about a society of individuals with paranormal 'talents'. The series began with historicals, but a few years ago Krentz came out with a contemporary about the descendents of the characters in her historicals. Are you following? Anyway, her books have sizzling attraction, suspense, light action, and mystery. I enjoy getting to know each new player in this series along with their particular 'talent'.

What happens when two off-the-chart aura talents get together? Immediate attraction, for one. Grace and Luther are much more comfortable working alone, so when they're assigned the cover of a married couple, neither is too sold on the idea...until they meet. It doesn't take them long to realize how well they mesh, both psychically and physically! Now if they could just get rid of the bad guys and the wacko opera singer (that's right, wacko opera singer) they could get on with their lives!

Fun and engaging. Onto my keeper shelf it goes.

Running Hot

I was not crazy about this particular book. It was just too "out there" for me to enjoy. But if you like reading about the paranormal and psychic ablities then this one is for you.

    Really Jayne. You can do better.

    I was waiting for our heroine to escape an awkward situation - it didn't happen. I was waiting for interesting character specific dialogue - it wasn't there. I was waiting for a better plot but death by an opera singer is pretty lame. This one was written in her sleep.

    Different location but the same story from the plot to the characterization!

    Having been a long time fan of Ms. Krentz's books (all of them including her writings as Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle), I have have to say the stories are all becoming very predicable. On the one hand, I did enjoy this book but on the other hand, I could have plugged in the characters and the storyline from her one of her previous books and it wouldn't have been any different really.<BR/>I just hope her upcoming books will be a bit different and not so predicable. Perhaps a "nontalent" with a "talent" relationship?
