    With the ability to detect the auras of dangerous psychic criminals, Rachel Bonner has found peace and quiet on Rainshadow Island with her dust bunny companion. Then Harry Sebastian, the descendant of a notorious pirate, arrives to investigate strange developments in the privately owned woods known as the Preserve. Rachel can sense the heart of darkness within him – and the stirrings of desire within her own soul....

    Story

    I must say that I love, adore many of the Jayne Anne Krentz Books, but I found myself cringing while listening to this story or falling asleep to "The Lost Night". I typically adore the paranormal in Jayne's stories. I also enjoy the plot replayed over and over again -- that of two powerful talents finding each other. I have not managed to finish listening to this title though I've managed to fly solo to the USA and back to Sweden and take a 11 hour train trip within Sweden... again, solo (meaning no children to watch at the time). I simply must not be a Harmony fan. It is a pity. This was my first audible listen, and a treat to myself. But it one that I could not manage.

    I don't know how to be fair to Joyce Bean in this review. After-all, she portrays the messenger in this dynamic. I had a super difficult time enjoying her voice when listening about Harry Sebastian. I cannot distinguish if this is because Harry's lines were simply not pleasing for me to hear or if it were the portrayal of the lines.

    Story

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    Story

    I found this title by Elizabeth Peters because I was looking for another novel read by Barbara Rosenblat. I enjoyed Barbara's portrayal of all the characters in the Amelia Peabody book that I think I find myself quoting the book. If you love a gentle mystery, snatch this right up. Thank you to both Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Rosenblat for a lively story.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    What is there not to love about this story? I truly enjoy the performance by Jennifer Ikeda. I sometimes get lost in the flowery descriptions by Deborah Harkness... but thankfully audible has a 30s back space so to speak. I used it so often with this story, because I had to hear it again. I finished the story today and I will buy the 2nd book immediately! Thank you Deborah Harkness & Jennifer Ikeda!! Thank you audible. Love it!
