Reporter Sierra McIntyre's stories on Crystal City's ghost hunters—and their mysterious guild—have earned her tabloid a bit of respect. It helps that she has her incredible intuition to fall back on. Especially when she interviews Ghost Hunter Guild Boss John Fontana about the disappearances of retired, homeless hunters.
Sierra doesn't want to trust the physically and psychically powerful man, but her senses—and her pet dust bunny, Elvis—give her the green light. To uncover the conspiracy within his own organisation, Fontana proposes . . . marriage. And though it's purely a business arrangement, there is nothing pure about the attraction that sizzles between them.
I haven’t read one of these in a long time. I was cleaning out my desk and found a couple of these Jayne Castle/Jayne Ann Krentz books and after flipping through a few pages I was hooked.
If you haven’t read one before, this author has 3 pen names, and 3 interconnecting series. The cool thing is all 3 series take place in different eras. The Jayne Castle books take place in the future on a world called Harmony that has been cut off from Earth for centuries. The alien world is full of psi energy and the previous inhabitants have left behind their cities and ruins. Many of the people in Harmony can manipulate the psi energy.
The “Ghost Hunters” aren’t hunting actual ghosts, it’s floating mass and they have to “de-rez” it to make things safe. So Fontana is the new guild boss for the ghost hunters and Sierra is a tabloid journalist who wants to expose the guild for the corrupt industry she is sure it is, but Fontana isn’t like that. And her intuition tells her that instantly. But her articles have put her on the radar of some very bad people…and Fontana realizes this so he offers her marriage. He can use his position as the guild boss to protect her.
But what happens if it isn’t enough?
Sierra and Fontana are a fun couple and I enjoyed their romance. I like that he appreciates Sierra’s intuition and ambition. He never once made fun of her or her tabloid job. He took her seriously and I appreciated that. And for her part, she never let him get away with anything. They were good together.
This series is nice for when you want a low-angst Romantic Suspense. It’s warm and easy and of course I can’t forget about Elvis. Sierra’s little dust bunny sidekick. He stole the show in every scene.
You don’t really have to read all three series to enjoy this one, so what are you waiting for? Enjoy!
