Running Hot: Arcane Society, Book 5 | [Jayne Ann Krentz]

Running Hot: Arcane Society, Book 5

Ex-cop Luther Malone, lifelong member of the secretive paranormal organization known as the Arcane Society, is waiting to meet Grace Renquist. Hired as an aura-reading consultant in the quest for a murder suspect, she's got zero field experience. She's from tiny Eclipse Bay, Oregon. She's a librarian, for heaven's sake.

As for Grace, she's not expecting much either from Malone, who walks with a cane and isn't so good with a gun. Nice resumé for a bodyguard.

Publisher's Summary

Ex-cop Luther Malone, lifelong member of the secretive paranormal organization known as the Arcane Society, is waiting to meet Grace Renquist. Hired as an aura-reading consultant in the quest for a murder suspect, she's got zero field experience. She's from tiny Eclipse Bay, Oregon. She's a librarian, for heaven's sake.

As for Grace, she's not expecting much either from Malone, who walks with a cane and isn't so good with a gun. Nice resumé for a bodyguard...

But even before they reach their hotel in Maui - where they'll be posing as honeymooners - Grace and Luther feel the electric charge between them. Problem is, they need to remain vigilant day and night; because it soon becomes clear there's more going on here. Rogue sensitives - operatives for the underground group Nightshade - are pouring into the luxury resort like there's a convention. Grace recognizes those dark spikes in their auras. She saw the same pattern in someone else in another life - a life she hasn't revealed to Luther or anyone else. And she understands how dangerous these people can be...especially with those para-hunters at their sides.

While the pair's employers at Jones & Jones scramble to get them backup, Luther and Grace have to think on their feet. The criminals in their midst aren't just high-level sensitives: They've enhanced their talents with a potent - and unpredictable - drug. And as Grace knows all too well, if you don't control your powers, your powers will control you...

    "Another Great Arcane Society story."

    This was a great story. I liked the characters, their interaction and the way the author incorporated Eclipse Bay into the story. The reader was terrific. You could really tell which character was speaking. This was one of my favorites. I wish all of Krentz's stories were unabridged.

    "Loved It!"

    I've just started "getting into" the Arcane series. I'm enjoying them all, the past, present and Harmony. Just a pleasant enjoyable escape. Why do we have to "interpret" our reading. Gosh, if you want depth and knowledge, you are in the wrong section. Life is good, enjoy it! Escape is fun too!

    "Meh a bit disappointing"

    I really like her Arcane society books, so I was looking forward to reading this. But unfortunately, I have to say the story felt too pattered and was not as exciting as I expected. I prefer the "Amanda Quick" regency Society books. I might have picked the wrong book for my first present day Society books. I don't want to give up the series, so I think I'll look for something that is more to my taste.

    "Go for it, fantasy romance lovers."

    Great fun, both as a read and a listen. Grace and Luther are sent as operatives to identify a psychic serial killer, and find themselves in the midst of a convention of psychic criminals. To their surprise, it gives them a chance to sort out their ruined lives at the same time. Krentz writes about Grace, Luther and their friends with understanding and humor.

    I loved the performance, especially Sandra Burr's creation of Grace, so much so that I affectionately tolerated her attempt to sound masculine for Luther. She throws herself with contained, wholehearted enjoyment into every sentence.

    "DISAPPOINTED"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. This book has too many things going on; I loose track.


    Would you recommend Running Hot to your friends? Why or why not?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    The female voice sounded like a 13 year old and the male voice, well, was no masculine.


    Did Running Hot inspire you to do anything?

    No

    "Run from this one"

    Ludicrous beyond belief. I rarely don't finish a book or audio. This one is an exception. Your intelligence is insulted with every sentence. Plus, the narration will make you laugh, not intentionally. Same for the sex scenes. I was reminded of one of those made for TV movies from the 1980's with the totally implausible plot lines and the overly dramatic dialogue. The main characters seem lifted out of a romance novel. You won't be able to run away fast enough.
