Overview

Tabloid reporter Sierra McIntyre wants a scoop 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 intuition—and her dust bunny companion—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’s nothing pure about the attraction that sizzles between them.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In a futuristic world fretted with alien tunnels, reporter Sierra McIntyre finds herself in a marriage of convenience with explorer John Fontana, head of the Ghost Hunters Guild, and a hot romance ensues. New York Times best-selling author Castle (author/librarian Jayne Ann Krentz) links this fifth title in the "Ghost Hunters" series with her "Arcane Society" series. Audie Award winner Joyce Bean's lightly dramatized interpretation and intuitive pacing move the story along, enhancing an otherwise merely competent book that is nonetheless sure to be popular with Castle/Krentz fans. Recommended for fiction collections where romance circulates well. [Audio clip available through library.brillianceaudio.com.-Ed.]

Jayne Castle's Dark Light is another tale of her imaginary land of Harmony and along with a wonderful hero and heroine she gives us a dust bunny named Elvis complete with cape and guitar. It's a great story with memorable characters and spooky evil doers, but have no fear the good guy always prevails.

Like each book, we get more development, twists, action, humor, romance and a wonderful supporting cast of characters. I love that the dust bunny in this one, a caffeine junkie who likes action. I'm starting to think all DB's are adrenaline addicts. In this one we meet Fontana the tough yet sensitive and vulnerable guild boss and Sierra, the independent and determined news reporter - who's more than a little untrusting of the man. As she digs deeper into a dangerous story, he offers his protection and a startling proposal. Bound together to uncover the scoop and the bad guys, they develop stronger feelings. If there is such a thing is psy triggering psy, the literal love at first sight, I think these two do it. Not to mention the oddity of both their gifts, and their different backgrounds. Him estranged from his family and wanting one of his own, her close to hers and raised in upper society. I think it was terribly sweet in spots because this causes no little self-esteem issue in Fontana. It makes him wonderfully dimensional. As it goes on we find out that Sierra has even bigger secrets than he does (loved that twist). And they stumbled on new tech while Fontana and his second go on an intense tag team rescue op. Just when it looks like the case is closed, there's yet another turn I didn't see coming. Finally we see Fontana build a connection with his family and attain his dream on two levels. Even while they continue to argue guild secrets with freedom of the press. Haha. If you love the series, you'll fall into this one rapidly and if not, this will make you a fan.

Earth has colonized the world of Harmony but they were not the final sentient species to do so. A mysterious alien race built underground catacombs filled with psi energy that over time manifested among the earthy colonists with each generation growing is psi skill. The mysterious aliens are gone leaving only their infrastructure.--- Tabloid reporter Sierra McIntyre is interviewing new Ghost Hunter Guild Chief John Fontana, who can manipulate psi energy so that it doesn¿t hurt anyone. Sierra is worried about former and homeless Guild member addicted to ghost juice and believes Fontana should tale care of the problem. She is also concerned that former impoverished hunters have disappeared without a trace and demands John investigate. Less than an hour after they meet, John proposes a marriage of convenience so they can combine their resources to investigate the issues that he feels generate from within the guild and to protect Sierra who is in danger from those shadows behind the disappearances. On their first night as husband and wife, someone using an alien artifact breaks into John¿s property with nasty intent. They escape into the catacombs for now, but traps and danger await them on every turn as the conspirators need to kill Mr. and Ms. Fontana to avoid discovery and disclosure. --- It is always great to visit Harmony where Jayne Castle escorts readers through great romance and compelling mystery in an alien combo sci-fi fantasy world. The latest thriller is exciting and fast-paced as the alien objects are used by avaricious people to gain more power. The pairing of Sierra and John enhances their inquiry into what is going on inside the Guild as fans of the saga will relish this strong paranormal romantic whodunit. --- Harriet Klausner

This part starts to draw me away from the story. It has potential, but your not using it. Draw your story out. Expand upon thoughts, feelings, sights, smells, tastes. All six sences. Yes six. The reader should be able to get whats inside Lostpaws mind, they should be able to here what he thinks of everything. Maye not in a rediculas way, but just enough to give us understanding of whats going on. Draw it out and your story should be okay.<p> ~&#167&#1108&#1026 &#25282
