Publisher's Summary

Reporter Sierra McIntyre is determined to find out who is kidnapping homeless retired Ghost Hunters off the streets of Crystal City, and more importantly, why. When her search for answers leads her to interview the new Guild Boss, John Fontana, she's ready with her questions.

Despite her paper's ridiculous tabloid headlines, Fontana has kept an eye on Sierra's reporting and knows she's on to something. To uncover the conspiracy within his own organization, Fontana proposes....marriage.

Realizing they need to work together to get what they each need, the pair marries to keep up appearances. She's a psychic and can tell he's a trustworthy fellow. His psychic power to radiate a rare dark light saves her from trouble. But this marriage of convenience might turn into something more.

Writing great Reader dissapointing

The book was well written and enjoyable DESPITE the reader. She read males just fine; however she read the main female charachter as if she were a sterotypical blond - vapid. Her reading was really quite disappointing. All in all I'll be reading other books by Jayne Castle but I'll be avoiding this reader.

Dark Light

I love every book Jayne Castle writes. So much so, that I read them all every year or two. I wish Audible would sell all of her books (especially Amaryllis). Jayne Ann Krentz is one of my all time favorite writers.

Predictable

Gave me something to listen to while I did other things.

Narrator voice not too bad, but for some reason every character in the book had adult voices except for the lead. The narrator assigned her a slightly young precocious 5 year old voice. Very annoying. Had I realized this was a romance novel I would not have purchased it. Have to check closer next time

Another adventure on Harmony!

I love the dust bunnies! She continues her adventures/romance on planet Harmony. Well written, easy to follow, hard to stop listening when it's time to get out of the car.

Good story but narrator just so-so.

I had already read the paper version of this book and I truly enjoy all the Ghost Hunter books. They are light reading, no Pulitzers here, but that's OK. My biggest complaint was with the reader's voice for the heroine. She made her sound like a prissy 10 year old, not a woman. The voice she used for the heroine's friend, Kay, was just right. Sounded like a real woman. Her voice for the various men was adequate and did not bother me, though there was not much range between the various characters. It was clear enough whom you were hearing. But, at times, I did not think I could listen to the baby voice of the heroine much longer. Thank goodness, it wasn't one of those 20 hour books!

So-so

Narration not to bad. Storyline is okay. But why is female lead nagging husband to help step family that has never communicated him in his life, Except now that they need his financial help. Blood connections do not make a family. This really annoys me.

The dust bunnies always win my heart

I have a hard time struggling with trilogies. They always seem to follow the same pattern over and over again. From book one to the present they have consistently been the same stories just changing the names and city. It's becoming monotonous. But I do love the dust bunnies!!!

Repetitive but the dust bunny saves the day!

I've read and listened to all of Jayne Krenz's works, all of Amanda Quick's works, and all of Jayne Castles works, and I've got to say that Dark Light, the 3 previous books, and the one that follows Dark Light are all cut from the same bolt of cloth. But, I'm sure Jayne's spark, talent with the repartee, and strong men dealing with spunky women, will resurrect soon. But let me be clear on one thing: An author who can create a delightful creature as the dust bunny has my following because these clever critters always brighten your day!
