Publisher's Summary

In the world of Harmony, Rainshadow Island is home to a mysterious preserve, secrets that have been kept for centuries, and a treasure worth killing for.…

As a light-talent, Alice North has the rare ability to make things disappear, including herself - a gift that comes in handy during her magic act with her dust bunny Houdini. Business mogul Drake Sebastian is day-blind, since his sight was nearly destroyed in a lab accident. But he’s the one man who can see Alice when she disappears - and he needs her. On Rainshadow Island, two dangerous Old World crystals are missing, igniting a paranormal storm. Drake thinks Alice is the key to finding them, and proposes they head there, but only after a marriage of convenience.

Alice’s honeymoon on Rainshadow is guaranteed to be memorable, as the island - and the passion between her and Drake - is about to explode.…

Have you found yourself quoting with the book?

This is a trivial complaint that reflects on all of Jayne Castles works and does not reflect on Deception Cove as it was a very entertaining, fun paced, action and mystery set in the future behind the implacable curtain. But do you find yourself almost able to repeat verbatim the rules and refs of marriages, child rearing, and the original colonists intent? Good. I was hoping I wasn't the only one. But! In Deception Cove these descriptions aren't the cut and paste normally done. The rules and explanations are actually incorporated in the action and character motives. So not only one of the better books of the series, it's also a change of explaining the old marriage rules! Definately worth a credit or as I was able to do, Buy it on Sale!

Jayne Castle produces another winner

With an excellent Author and narrator how can you go wrong.

All of books in the Arcane. Ladies of Lantern Street, Dark Legacy and Harmony series are an auto buy for me. Not that some of Jayne Ann Krentz's other series and books are not worth reading or buying for example the Lost Colony series (early Harmony clone) Lavinia Lake / Tobias March series and Eclipse Bay series/books to name but a few

I hope we hear more about Rainshadow and the world of Harmony for a long time to come.

Spoiler Alert

As there are 3 Sebastian siblings and 3 missing crystals as noted in The Lost Night, I had hoped that meant the third crystal will be tackled in the third book along with inducing the third sibling a sister. But with all crystals now accounted for . . . who knows . . I guess we will have to wait for the next installment to find out.

As for meeting the next Dust Bunny it.s going to be a hard wait to meet the next successor to bunnies like Elvis and Houdini. each one in the past has had him or her own unique personality and contribution to each story

Is it worth buying - YES

If you like a touch of Paranormal or books set in alternate worlds you will find it hard to find a better author than Jayne Ann Krentz

Jayne Ann Krentz also writes under Jayne Bentley, Jayne Castle, Amanda Glass, Stephanie James, Amanda Quick, Jayne Taylor. The most famous being Jayne Ann Krentz contempory, Amanda Quick past and Jayne Castle future themed books.

Now you SEE her ...now you DON'T....Paranormal FUN

PLOT: THE ISLAND HOLDS TREASURES~~~

Paranormal romance~ Alice North can "bend light" and so she can "disappear" before your eyes. She has a magic act with her PET...a "dust bunny" ...a dust bunny is not a rabbit but a 6 legged cat like creature with 4 baby blues eyes that is part of the act. Alice is being "stalked by her ex mother in law". HUNK Drake Sebastian is "day blind" and was blinded by his jealous ex lover Zara.....wearing dark glasses to avoid the glare of light ...he is drawn to Alice who he takes in a "marriage of convenience" to pair up to solve the mystery of the ISLAND covered in fog that is rumored to have mystery and "treasure'.....using the "talents" of Alice and even Drake help this move along well. ONE of the BETTER paranormal romances in a long time. Dust Bunny is adorable and fun and has you laughing at his antics. Lots of death and drama and mystery here but the romance between Alice and Drake is solid and interesting. I GIVE THIS ONE 4 OUT OF 5 for romance, mystery and a pet that is "naughty" as he is fun. Holds the interest. VERY Good.

Rain dance

Brilliantly done. Jayne Castles Harmony stories have just the right amount of character and world building. Loved the Sabastian brothers and the heroines that come into their lives.

Loving Castle’s series

Even though these books don’t follow as far as numbers in which series I’m loving them. There’s ghost hunters, rain shadow and one more. They meld together well! This series is so creative! Hats off to you Jayne!!

Dust bunnies to the rescue.

Got this on sale. A typical Harmony book, good thing I like Jayne Castle because a lot of her books are very similar, and this book is no exception. The characters are all basically the same too. The woman is a strong misunderstood person with a bleeding heart and the man is always a dangerous extremely rich and powerful type. Best animal creation though, I love the dust bunnies and totally want one. If you have not read a Jayne Castle books don't start with this one, too many references to other books. There also seemed to be holes in the explaining of the events and often times I was wondering how I got from point A to point B. The one thing that annoys me about Jayne Castle/Krentz/Quick is that all the books interlink somehow and if you don't read them in order then you are stuck wondering what happened in the other books. All of her series/books (different names of author) somehow link together, and it drives me crazy because I'm the type who has to read things in order. This is basically a spin off story of the Harmony series. Narrator does a good job.
