I love her Harmony books!,
This review is from: Ghost Hunter (Ghost Hunters) (Mass Market Paperback)
JAK has been on my pre-order list for two decades - Jayne Ann Krentz, Amanda Quick and her Jayne Castle paranormals. However, I think JAK's best writing of the last decade has been her Castle books. Amaryllis, Zinnia and Orchid, were sexy, funny and dead on target. The type of books that stays in my mind ten years later. After Dark and After Glow are tied to Ghost Hunter, and just JAK as her very best. Okay, it's "formula". JAK has set patterns and she gravitates toward that, but it's a formula I adore. I simply love her males. They are properly male, bossy, arrogant, love to control everything including the woman in their lives. Naturally, you have the female who wants to be loved for herself, not her family connections.
Elly St. Clair is engaged to the Guild Boss of Aurora Spring, Cooper Boone. Her father and brothers were always involved in the Guild, so naturally they were please when Elly became engaged to Cooper. Getting bridal jitters, she wants Cooper to declare his love and passion, not how suitable they are for marriage. When Cooper doesn't give her the reassurance she needs, fearing he wants her for her connections not love, she breaks off the engagement and moves to Cadence. In the six months past, she'd hope Cooper would come after her, like a dashing knight on a charger. Cooper thinks to give Elly time and she would come back. Boy was he mistaken. She's opened a plant shop and enjoys her life in Cadence.
When Elly contacts Cooper and asks him to help her, he believes she wants to reconcile. That is at the very back of her mind, but her current concern is her friend Bertha is missing down in the alien catacombs, and she needs a Ghost Hunter to save her. Cooper is delighted to get the call. Only, once again, he is combining business and romance as he rides to Elly's rescue of Bertha. There is someone, a Guild hunter, summoning legendary Blue Ghosts in connection to the manufacturing of illegal drugs. Cooper is out to put a stop to the drugs, take down the Ghost Hunter who handles Blue Ghosts, and win his ladylove.
Cooper stole my heart. Elly was properly feisty. Their chemistry sparkles.
Highly recommended along with Amaryllis, Zinnia, Orchid, After Dark and After Glow. It's JAK at the top of her game.
