Mini Me: The Lost Night by Jayne Castle

Even the mysterious world of Harmony has people who don’t quite fit in. They’re drawn to places like Rainshadow Island, a beautiful sanctuary where anyone can feel safe—and where secrets are closely guarded...

Schooled in an exotic form of martial arts, and with the ability to detect the auras of dangerous psychic criminals, Rachel Bonner and her dust bunny companion have found peace and quiet on Rainshadow Island, operating a bookstore and café.

But her tranquil new life is thrown into chaos when Harry Sebastian, the descendant of a notorious pirate, arrives to investigate strange developments in the privately owned woods known as the Preserve.

Immediately drawn to the amber-eyed woman, Harry must tread carefully. While Rachel’s special talents can help him track down dangerous rogues who have violated the Preserve, they can also sense the heart of darkness within him. But desire can weaken the strongest of defenses—and leave even the strongest man wanting more…

Can I just put a mini-me right here? I promise I'm not trying to phone it in but writing a long review just seems unnecessary. I like Jayne Castle, I like her Harmony series, and this book was no exception. Kick ass hero, kick ass heroine, neither of them jump each others' bones in the first five pages. Instead we get a nice romance, some sexy times, and a struggle to uncover the msytery of Rachel's forgotten night in the Preserve. Who the bad guys are isn't exactly 'OOH AMAZING' but hey, that's not why I read these.

And to finish up - I can't wait for the next one!
