Obsidian Prey by Jayne Castle

Amber tuner and independent prospector Lyra Dore lost her heart-and her discovery of a rare amethyst ruin-to cutthroat businessman Cruz Sweetwater. At least she had her artistically talented dust-bunny to comfort her...

But the ruin's mysterious power has put everyone involved with the project in danger. And only by trusting their psychic instincts will Cruz and Lyra survive- and surrender to the desire that binds them.

Jayne Ann Krentz is another one of those authors I'd term an 'Old Faithful'. No matter the description on the back, I always end up enjoying them- and the books that she writes as Jayne Castle are no exception. Romance with a hint of the paranormal is always fun and the ones that take place on Harmony are that great mix of a little bit of the unknown with the familiarity of romance. I think it's the same type of thing that draws us to books with werewolves or shapeshifters - the idea that you could be destined for someone and that no one can tear that can of connection apart. The characters in this book were just as unique as in Krentz's other novels and I think like me you'll get a chuckle at all the references to the heroine having 'broken the heart' of the hero.

Overall Feeling - Thumbs up. A great light read, one that I will happily add to my collection.
