New York Times bestselling author JAYNE CASTLE

The wildly popular alter ego of bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz creates “delectably entertaining paranormal romantic suspense” (Booklist) in the “unique, synergistic world of St. Helen’s” (Library Journal ), the not-so-distant space colony where hearts and minds are gloriously in sync!

Atop psychic for exclusive Psynergy Inc., Orchid Adams has her hands full with a baffling murder—which doesn’t exactly allow time for husband hunting. Is it even possible there’s a man on St. Helen’s who measures up to her dreams of wedded bliss? Take her new client, Rafe Stonebraker: primitive and elemental, an unlicensed P.I. with some serious secrets, Rafe is hardly marriage material. So why does his powerful presence have Orchid imagining the most outrageous affair? Rafe is embroiled in solving a strange theft while thwarting a hostile takeover of Stonebraker Shipping; he needs a wife—and fast—to salvage his credibility. Orchid Adams doesn’t fit the profile he had in mind, but she fits in his arms. Will their electrifying connection end up getting them burned?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Determined to rescue his family's company from impending ruin by becoming CEO, Rafe Stonebreakerwho's gifted with psychic strategizing abilitieshas everything in place to make it happen, except the one thing he desperately needs to win over the boarda wife! But it isn't easy for such an exotic talent as Rafe to find a wife through a recognized matchmaking agency. Then he encounters the icy writer of psychic vampire romance novels, Orchid Adams. With her typical offbeat humor and flair, Castle once again takes a pair of powerful, "unmatchable" protagonists, sets them down in her innovative, synergistic world of St. Helens, and gives them a mystery to solve, villains to outwit, and a passion to explore. Readers will be waiting for this terrifically sexy romance, the third in the series. Castle (Zinnia, LJ 8/97) also writes as Amanda Quick and under her own name, Jayne Ann Krentz; she lives in the Seattle area.

The Whole Trilogy (Zinnia, Orchid, and Amarylis) is the best out of all of Castle's books. I wish, wish, wish she would go back to THESE stories!! I've tapered off reading her most recent ones over the last couple of years because they just don't keep me as enthralled as this World does. I LOVE the relationship of the Talent and Focus. Haven't found anything like it anywhere else, and I've read a lot of books in this genre. MUST READ

I have read all three books in this series and this is my favorite. The characters and storyline are very well written. Orchid who is a psychic prism is hired by Stonebraker to channel his psychic energy for his detective agency. But he is really auditioning for a psychically compatible wife. There is action, intrigue, romance, okay and some hot sex too so that you don't get bore. I just wish the series would keep going and going and going. Loved IT.

Read all St. Helen's series, enjoyed all. I read for pleasure so even though you know the main characters will not willingly admit attraction to eash other, they will end together. Jayne Castle just fills in the middle. The mixture of sci-fi, a vivid imagination by the author and some steamy romance is good travel reading.
