Charlotte and Slade are very interesting characters and truly made for each other. I actually liked how their intimate life played out and how it had some serious back and forth.
There are as many mysteries aboveground on the world of Harmony as there are underground. They met several years ago when they were in their teens spending the summer on the island. In nighy course of the investigation, the two begin an affair and must deal with their fears about their psychic abilities while putting off a few busybody neighbors. Rex looks cute and fluffy most of the time but he is a dangerous predator is there is a threat.
Canyons Of Night
Without conflict, the conversations seems so mundane. She’s missed Cookie and Garrett and Uncle Bob. Hero meets heroine, they argue, then realise their talents dovetail perfectly together, and have a HEA after getting rid of the nigyt guys. I would have like to have seen a bit more chemistry between Charlotte and Slade but they were still likeable and very engaging.
Canyons of Night
That is soooo frustrating! Good writing and paranormal abilities and dust bunnies with a bit of romance.
The way I see it, this author plus all the people who got this book ready for the market put in a lot of time, effort, and hard work. Their only chance rests with a colonel of engineers – a despised outsider, a genius, a master of military and political strategy with the wrong colour skin. Let me again state how absolutely crappy the sex scenes are in this series.
Man, that series was funny! On my fourth reading of this book, I have decided that it is just right. The White Drake’s army has cut a bloody swathe across the world, leaving nothing but ash in its wake. Both of the pair are likeable for the most part, although during the reunion that serves as our intro to our now grown up leads, Charlotte comes across a bit naggy with Slade whose dust bunny pal is on the loose around her precious antiques.
But for some reason I do enjoy Jayne Castle’s books based on the Harmony world. In the Name of the Family by Sarah Dunant. Canyons of Night is no different. It took nearly three-quarters of the book to find out what they can do with their respective talents and it seemed like there were three different plots going on at once until the end when the reader discovers there is really only one plot with a preview of another.
Canyons of Night by Jayne Castle
Jayne Ann Krentz and her various pseudonyms used to be an autobuy for me – however, the only books of hers I regularly read nowadays are the Jayne Castle ones.
If you haven’t read the others, I don’t think you should start here as some of it could be confusing if you didn’t know the world.
This one has all the elements of the most successful of Jayne Castle’s books. This story takes place entirely on a quaint, exotic island. First let me say that I’m not normally a fan of the “futuristic” genre.
Micro-Resilience by Bonnie St. I’m going to spoiler this quote because it is very explicit, so watch your virgin eyes and don’t open it if you don’t understand the phrase wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am. Besides, Rex’s purse is European, so it’s okay. They meet, they have a near sexual encounter, a few issues come up that are easily eliminated, they get involved in a mystery, and then we have resolution.
Time remaining — day s — hour s — minute s — second s. From the author of A Secret History of Witches comes a new standalone novel set in the same world: I love the dust bunny’s in her stories and Rex was definitely no exception, he was such a character and a lot more feral than the other dust bunnies we’ve seen.
A very good read with enjoyable characters. I liked how well she puts up with that and how she takes true joy in bringing the perfect gifts to the people in her life.
