New York Times bestselling author JAYNE CASTLE
Acclaimed for her novels of “delectably entertaining paranormal romantic suspense” (Booklist), the wildly popular alter ego of bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz takes off on a star-dusted excursion to a rich civilization where danger and passion are just a heartbeat away. . . .
Amaryllis Lark is one of the best psychic detectives on St. Helen’s, the earth colony recently cut off from the mother planet, yet not so very different from home. . . . Lucas Trent, the rugged head of Lodestar Exploration, isn’t keen on the prim type—and from her crisp business suit to her cool evaluation of his request to bust a corporate thief, beautiful Amaryllis is excruciatingly proper. But when a bold hunch heats up into a twisting murder investigation, by-the-book Amaryllis must let her guard down and break some rules—and a red-hot love affair ignites. Now, as they race to solve a puzzle of deadly intrigue, no power—otherworldly or otherwise—can keep them apart!

The author of a string of New York Times bestsellers, JAYNE ANN KRENTZ uses three different pen names for each of her three "worlds". As JAYNE ANN KRENTZ (her married name) she writes contemporary romantic-suspense. She uses AMANDA QUICK for her novels of historical romantic-suspense. JAYNE CASTLE (her birth name) is reserved these days for her stories of futuristic/paranormal romantic-suspense.
She is married and lives with her husband, Frank, in Seattle, Washington.
In the futuristic city of New Seattle on the Earth colony of St. Helen's, love and passion bring together two very unlikely people. Amaryllis Lark is a prism, able to focus the power of a psychic talent. She's also one of the best psychic detectives working for Psynergy, Inc. She's cool, proper and completely professional-- until Lucas Trent gets past her defenses. Lucas is head of Lodestar Exploration and wants Amaryllis to help him track down a corporate thief. This should be just another job to Amaryllis, but it turns into something much more as the rugged adventurer touches her heart and mind. Someone is betraying Lucas and he intends to find out why. Used to living life on the edge, Lucas has no interest in the prissy Miss Lark, even if her prism ability is a match for his off-the-chart talent. What starts out as a simple corporate security situation turns into a murder investigation that puts both Lucas and Amaryllis right in the middle of the danger. Lucas doesn't count on being attracted to Amaryllis, but when their minds touch, passion takes over. The unlikely duo discover that there's more to appearances than meets the eye! The incomparable Jayne Ann Krentz returns, writing as Jayne Castle in this delightful and delicious romance. Part fantasy, part paranormal, part futuristic, Amaryllis is a thoroughly entertaining love story. Lucas is the to-sigh-for hero of every woman's dreams. Rugged and handsome, he is the perfect match for Amaryllis. Their adventures together keep the reader on the edge of her seat! The genre of futuristics is still growing, but readers have already seen certain themes being repeated and redone with too much emphasis on technology and Star Wars-like intergalactic battles. Thankfully, Ms. Krentz (Castle) does an incredible job of creating a unique, realistic world in the not-too-distant future and filling it up with real characters. Readers will be looking forward to the next passionate story from Jayne Castle and Psynergy, Inc. A stunning tale from the amazing Jayne Castle! This is the future of futuristics! Ms. Castle creates a believable future with characters we care about! Readers have come to expect only the best from Jayne Ann Krentz... and she never disappoints!Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
