Ex-cop Luther Malone, lifelong member of the secretive paranormal organization known as the Arcane Society, is waiting to meet Grace Renquist. Hired as an aura-reading consultant in the quest for a murder suspect, she’s got zero field experience. She’s from tiny Eclipse Bay, Oregon. She’s a librarian, for heaven’s sake. As for Grace, she’s not expecting much, either, from Malone, who walks with a cane and isn’t so good with a gun. Nice résumé for a bodyguard. But even before they reach their hotel in Maui – where they’ll be posing as honeymooners – Grace and Luther feel the electric charge between them. Problem is, they need to remain vigilant day and night; because it soon becomes clear there’s more going on here. Rogue sensitives – operatives for the underground group Nightshade – are pouring into the luxury resort as if there’s a convention. Grace recognizes those dark spikes in their auras. And she understands how dangerous these people can be...especially with those para-hunters at their sides. As Grace knows all too well, if you don’t control your powers, your powers will control you.

About the Author:

Jayne Ann Krentz is the author of fifty New York Times bestsellers. She has written contemporary romantic suspense novels under that name, as well as futuristic and historical romance novels under the pseudonyms Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick, respectively. She lives in Seattle.

From Booklist:

Luther Malone should have known that even an “easy” assignment from Fallon Jones would have a few unexpected twists. Not only did Jones expect him to work with a complete novice with no field experience, but also Malone’s new “partner,” Grace Renquist, is a librarian! It’s true, she works in the Bureau of Genealogy at the Arcane Society, but Grace knows her talents at aura-reading are every bit as good as Malone’s paranormal gift, and she is determined to prove her professional worth while on assignment with this ex-cop with a limp, a fear of guns, and attitude. Of course, the one thing Jones fails to tell either Malone or Grace is that while they conduct a secret investigation in Maui to search for a possible murderer, they are going to have to pretend to be married. Combining a superbly matched pair of protagonists, wonderfully original secondary characters (including a deliciously self-absorbed diva villainess with a “killer” voice), and a cleverly constructed plot, best-selling Krentz works her usual literary alchemy and creates another irresistible, paranormal-flavored novel of sexy romantic suspense to add to her much-loved Arcane Society series (Sizzle and Burn, 2008). --John Charles
