Mass Market Paperback: 480 pages
Publisher: Jove; Reprint edition (December 29, 2009)
A heroine who can see dark energy flashes in a villain's aura and a hero who can squelch villainous thoughts before they're put into action go to paradise to find a murderer, but find love, sex and a nest of drug-enhanced evildoers instead in Krentz's latest Arcane Society novel. Librarian Grace Renquist and ex-cop-turned-bartender Luther Malone, both members of the centuries-old Arcane Society, join forces when the psychic investigative agency Jones & Jones hires Grace, with Luther as her bodyguard, to find a killer in Hawaii. Luther quickly realizes Grace is not your normal paranormal, but their hot romance is put (briefly) on hold as they learn that Nightshade, drug-fueled supernatural baddies, are after the same murderer - as is the lethal psychic hunter La Sirene, an opera diva with a killer voice. The plot is fast, steamy and wildly entertaining even if it defies credulity.
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.
