Books by Jayne Castle

Illusion Town

Illusion Town is the latest in Ms. Castle’s Harmony series featuring the ancestors of earth residents who became trapped on the parallel world of Harmony. It has all the features I’ve come to expect from the series including an intelligent hero and heroine who respect each other, as well as a fu ...

The Hot Zone

I have read most of the books written by Amanda Quick and a few by Jayne Ann Krentz, but this is my first by Jayne Castle (even though they're all the same author). This book bleeds over from Krentz’s Arcane Novels series to a futuristic society cut off from earth on the planet of Harmony. This i ...

Deception Cove

I have long been a fan of Jayne Ann Krentz, especially her science fiction romance novels written as Jayne Castle. They are consistently fun and entertaining, and how can you not enjoy books with darling animals like the dust bunnies? If you haven’t read any of them, imagine a dust ball that purrs ...

The Lost Night

The author’s latest futuristic romance set on the world of Harmony contains many of the features I’ve come to expect, including a hero and heroine who respect each other and share witty, intelligent dialog. While I enjoyed much of this story, the beginning dragged as the heroine’s backstory wa ...

Midnight Crystal

It’s been a while since I read Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick). And, while I didn’t expect her to have changed, I wondered if her formula still works. Just because a book is derivative doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable, right? Well, if you’ve read AAR before, then ...

Obsidian Prey

Obsidian Prey is the latest entry in Jayne Castle’s futuristic romance series set on Harmony. By way of disclosure, the author, in all of her incarnations, is a huge comfort read for me due to her honorable, intelligent heroes and heroines and the humor interspersed with intelligent dialog. Altho ...

Dark Light

Though somewhat predictable, Dark Light is a comfortable read. The sexy, protective, alpha male and a spunky, yet sensible, heroine were just what I needed to get out of a slight reading slump. The fifth installment of the author's Ghost Hunters series takes place in the futuri ...

Silver Master

I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately. Since starting a new job that requires me to drive instead of taking public transit, I’ve lost a solid two hours a day of prime reading time. Now I’m lucky if I squeeze in 15 minutes before bed. It’s also been a really long time since I’ve been caught up ...

Ghost Hunter

I’ve been reading Castle/Krentz/Quick for so many years now that it takes something extraordinary from her to stick in my mind. For those that have been reading the Castle books set on Harmony, there is really nothing new here. It was like settling in with an old friend: comforting, but not truly ...

After Glow

I considered the preceding book in this series, After Dark a return to the Jayne Ann Krentz/Jayne Castle I know and love. After a string of disappointing books for me, she hit her stride with Emmett and Lydia and the world of Harmony a planet discovered after an energy anomalie opened a gate between ...
