Overview

Even the mysterious world of Harmony has people who don’t quite fit in. They’re drawn to places like Rainshadow Island, a beautiful sanctuary where anyone can feel safe—and where secrets are closely guarded...

Schooled in an exotic form of martial arts, and with the ability to detect the auras of dangerous psychic criminals, Rachel Bonner and her dust bunny companion have found peace and quiet on Rainshadow Island, operating a bookstore and café.

But her tranquil new life is thrown into chaos when Harry Sebastian, the descendant of a notorious pirate, arrives to investigate strange developments in the privately owned woods known as the Preserve.

Immediately drawn to the amber-eyed woman, Harry must tread carefully. While Rachel’s special talents can help him track down dangerous rogues who have violated the Preserve, they can also sense the heart of darkness within him. But desire can weaken the strongest of defenses—and leave even the strongest man wanting more…

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Realizing she fits into neither the Harmonic Enlightenment community in which she was raised nor Harmony's mainstream parapsychology world, aura healer Rachel Blake heads for sanctuary on Rainshadow Island to reopen her bookstore and café and regain her balance. Then shadow-aura Harry Sebastian barges into her life. Namesake of his legendary pirate great-grandfather and scion of the family who owns most of the island, Harry is on a mission to see what's wrong in the island's mysterious, dangerous Preserve. Rachel's senses go on high alert, and she knows without a doubt that her life is about to change. Harry knows it, too, because Rachel holds the key to the mystery. Unfortunately, he's not the only one who knows. VERDICT Overflowing with sassy dialog, psychically charged sex, and unexpected plot twists, this story of missing memories, hidden identities, shadowy monsters, and psychic vampires takes fans on a spirited, surreal journey, skillfully wrapping up one story while setting the stage for future adventures. Another irresistible futuristic sparkler. Castle (Canyons of Night) lives in the Seattle area.

    Right now, I am fixated on reading all the books of Jane Castle

    Right now, I am fixated on reading all the books of Jane Castle (Jayne Ann Krentz Amanda Quick) about the Arcane Society or people with paranormal powers. This book fits right in with that goal. The character development was good because I actually cared what happened to the people in the story. The story line held my attention. This is a book I would pick up and read again later.

    Another Harmony World hit!

    I love the hero and heroine (Harry Sebastian and Rachel Bonner)with their quirky ways. But then again, whether she writes as Amanda Quick, Jayne Ann Krentz, or Jayne Castle, her characters always possess a certain quirkness that's unique to them. It was also nice to see cameo appearances or mention of characters and couples from previous novels. It gives the reader a stronger bond and sense of community on the world of Harmony. Usually, in this author's novels, there is one arch villain that's so twisted, horrific, and evil that the reader can't wait to see his demise, but that wasn't the case with this novel ... at least it didn't feel that way, and why I gave this novel four stars instead of five.

    suspenseful paranormal mystery with a healthy side dish of romance

    This novel was an absolute pre-order for me. I love the Harmony and Arcane series. All of the books are designed to be read as a standalone, but I have read them in order since book one. The Lost Night offers up a suspenseful paranormal mystery with a healthy side dish of romance. Every time I open a Castle novel I find a delicious escape. The novel centers on Rachel Blake an aura healer who was raised in a Harmonic Enlightenment community. Rachel doesn’t quite fit in and after trying life in the big city; she chooses to reopen her Aunt’s bookstore and café on Rainshadow Island. There has been a lot of unexplained paranormal activity near the Preserves and Harry Sebastian is sent in to take a look. The Preserves is a dangerous sanctuary filled with psi-energy. Despite safeguards and warnings, would be treasure hunters and explorers enter and never return. When Harry shows up on the island and asks for Rachel’s help, she had no idea how much her life is about to change. The tale that unfolds is filled with suspense, monsters, romance and enough twists to keep me turning the pages. Castle always provides delightful characters that I can connected with. Rachel is sweet, caring and trying to find her way. She is confident in who she is, but very unsure how others perceive her. She has a remarkable gift, and a unique outlook based on her upbringing. Harry is of course completely swoon-worthy and an all out hero. He is however flawed. He is a powerful para-hunter and his skill level is off the chart. He sees himself as a monster, and tries to keep control of his abilities. The chemistry between Harry and Rachel was intense. They were both leery and the dance they performed was delicious. Castle gave us a creepy villain, a para-vampire who gave me the chills. I loved going back to Rainshadow Island and seeing some of the characters from the previous novels. The world-building Castle has created in this futuristic world is fascinating. Harmony is actual another planet that Earth colonized. After a tragic event, it became shut off from Earth. Filled with alien artifacts it’s always a cool place to visit. Despite the strange landscapes, it has been colonized much like Earth, and the cities and towns are all unique. The Preserves on Rainshadow Island is fascinating and scary. I loved learning more about it and the owners who claim responsibility for it. In this tale, we have thieves trying to enter the preserves, and they are willing to use whatever means necessary. Something they are doing is affecting the weather. I quickly became swept up in the story and consumed this in a single evening. I recommend The Lost Night and the Harmony series to fans of paranormal suspense and romance. Jayne Castle is a Pseudonym for author Jayne Anne Krentz. She is one of my favorite authors, and I have read almost everything she has published. I credit Krentz for introducing me to the world of paranormal woo-woo, with her novel Second Sight, the first book in the Arcane Society published under the pseudonym Amanda Quick.

    I usually buy Krentz writing as Jayne Castle. However, this book had been published before and it appeared new as the publish date was for the nook edition.

    A Classic Castle

    The Rainshadow series faithfully continues Jayne Castle/Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick's classic romance style with a paranomoral twist. Castle's characters have just the right amount of flaws to make them likeable - some shadows in their pasts and enough quirks in their characters to make them slightly outcast and all the more likeable for it. Its always interesting to discover the next slight twist Castle puts on her other earth - its like visiting a foreign country where the locals all speak English with a delightful accent and still like Americans.

    A truly great book, highly recommended!

    This continues the Rainshadow story, but in such a way that if this is your first JAK novel, you'll still love it. Interesting characters and a fun storyline, this is just a very enjoyable book to read. Thank you!

    Jayne Castle/Quick/Krentz will remain on my KEEPER shelf. A vis

    Jayne Castle/Quick/Krentz will remain on my KEEPER shelf. A visit back to Harmony is like taking a vacation without the jetlag. Rainshadow Island isn't described as a tropical paradise - sounds more like San Juan Islands, but There be monsters here... not to mention rain, storms and romance. Yup, Back to Harmony and all the psi- Jayne Castle can throw your way.

    Great

    This was another super story from the author. I loved all the images I get in my head with her writing of these very future towns and people who live there. The Dust bunnies are still my favorite part of the books.
