♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
For once in a long time I really enjoyed the romantic chemistry between the hero and the heroine in one of Jayne Castle (Jayne Ann Krentz) novels. The novel begins with an event that happens 15 years earlier when the lead characters first meet. Now the two have returned to the island where they first met. The hero, Slade, is now the chief of police and the heroine Charlotte is taking over her aunt's antique shop.
Canyon of Night is the third in the Arcane series the Looking Glass. The series ends with this book in the future on Harmony where the Bridwell devises have made their way through the curtain and being used against the Arcane members once again. Unwittingly Charlotte comes upon a group of criminals trying to get their hands on a seemingly innocent snowball antique.
At the same time, the island of Rainshadow is introduced where their is a preserve on the island that holds many secrets. Those that enter the persevere have been known to never come out. The island is due to come up in future Harmony books.
Several action scenes keep the story interesting and the description of the inside of the preserve includes some creative delights.
The island of Rainshadow is home to the mysterious, privately-owned woods known only as the Preserve. Now, after fifteen years away, both Charlotte Enright and her teen crush, Slade Attridge, have returned. But will their psi talents and Slade’s dust bunny companion be enough to keep them from getting drawn into the darkness at the heart of the Preserve?
