    Castle returns to Rainshadow Island, which she introduced in her last book. Rachel Bonner has come back to Rainshadow after trying to work in mainstream society. Harry Sebastian arrives on island to investigate the increasing storms and power within the ancient alien preserve. Together, along with dust bunny Darwina, they investigate and fall in love. Very enjoyable.

    FYI – This review is written by a huge Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz) fan. I have been reading her books for over 15 years now and I have no plans on stopping!Rachel Blake has an unusual psychic talent as an aura healer, and an unusual childhood. After trying to fit in with the mainstream community and finding that it isn’t working for her, she moves to Rainshadow Island. There she reopen’s her Aunts bookstore and sells not only books she also sells her very own specially blended just for you teas. Soon she meets Harry Sebastian who has been to Rainshadow Island to check on the unusual paranormal activity happening in the Preserve, his family’s private woods.Harry is drawn to Rachel and thinks she might be the key in helping find out what is going on at the Preserve. After all, she is the only person who has ever gone missing in the Preserve and lived even though she doesn’t remember it.Big surprise – I loved The Lost Night. I always feel like Jayne Castle’s characters are people I wish I knew in real life. They have such personalities and interesting psychic abilities. Then we have the dust bunnies. I want one so bad!! Darwina always seem to steal the show in whatever scene she was in. The plot didn’t have any big surprises in it but it was a nice mystery/romance. All in all it is a book I can see myself rereading and enjoying again.The Lost Night is the first book the Rainshadow series, a spinoff of the Harmony series. It can be read as a standalone. This is an adult paranormal romance with a suspenseful mystery set in a futuristic world.

    I am a huge fan of Jayne Ann Krentz no matter what name she uses when she writes. I love her characters and the crisp dialog. This book was no exception. Rachel Blake is a young woman with a strong and unusual psychic talent who was raised in the Harmony equivalent of a hippie commune. She never fit in and leaves to find her place in the world. After an unsuccessful attempt to live in the larger world which leaves her facing the unwanted attentions of a psychic vampire, she travels to Rainshadow Island which is a the sort of place that welcomes those who don't fit in elsewhere.Rainshadow Island is the property of the Sebastian family and is also the site of a large Preserve that was set up by the aliens who first settled Harmony but who have disappeared leaving behind various ruins and gadgets. Not many humans can get through the psychic barrier that guards the Preserve and those who can often get lost inside forever. Rachel is one of the few who got in and managed to get out again. Unfortunately, she lost her memory about how she did it and what she did inside. Harry Sebastain comes to Rainshadow Island because the Preserve seems to be sending out something that is disturbing the psychic balance of the island. He is also coming to check on a treasure that was hidden in the Preserve by his great-grandfather. Harry also has an unusual psychic talent. His talent managed to scare away his wife and cause them to divorce. Divorce is a major social stigma on Harmony which values a strong, stable family unit above almost everything else. Rachel and Harry meet and fall in love. She isn't the least bit afraid of him. In fact, her psychic ability meshes with his perfectly. But before they can live happily ever after, she and Harry have to find his great-grandfather's treasure, find out what is destabilizing the Preserve, and protect her from the psychic stalker who is obsessed with her. One of the fun parts of the Harmony series is the inclusion of a special kind of pet - dust bunnies. Rachel's dust bunny Darwina is a fine example of the species. Dust bunnies are cute and fluffy until there is danger. Once there is a dangerous situation they develop into very dangerous creatures. Darwina is obsessed with Rachel's childhood toy Amberella which is the Harmony equivalent of the Barbie doll. She is also a big fan of Rachel's cookies. I like the way Rachel talks to her as if she could understand every word. And, who knows, maybe dust bunnies can. They certainly form psychic connections with their chosen people. This was a fun romance in a nicely drawn world.

    The mysterious Preserve on Rainshadow Island is heating up; the Foundation sends Harry Sebastian to investigate. His chief suspect is aura reader Rachel, who walked out of the Preserve a few months ago missing 24 hours of her life. Complications, naturally, ensue.As always, the dust bunny steals the show. Darwina is not only charming and cute, but a natural predator--which comes in very handy when facing down fire-bombers and tentacled monsters.

    She has no memory of what happened behind the seething energy fence that guards the perimeter of the Preserve, but Rainshadow Island resident Rachel Blake knows something happened on the other side - it's haunting her dreams. Harry Sebastian, whose job it is to investigate odd goings on in the Preserve, is immediately intrigued. He's pretty sure Rachel isn't the one responsible for the Preserve's surging energy, but he's not too sorry he'll have to investigate closely to make sure.Lost night, lost weekend... amnesia is a plot device Krentz/Castle is getting a bit to cozy with for my taste. Thin on plot, although the dust bunny is, as always, a scene stealer, this is an okay, but not stellar, read.
