Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener:

Welcome back to my other world - the rules are a little different here.

Life is complicated for Lydia Smith. She's working at that tacky, third-rate museum, Shrimpton's House of Ancient Horrors, trying to salvage her career in para-archaeology - and dating the most dangerous man in town. Just when she thinks she might be getting things under control, she stumbles over a dead body and discovers that her lover has a secret past that could get him killed. Just to top it off, there's trouble brewing underground in the eerie, glowing green passageways of the Dead City.

Of course, all of these problems pale in comparison to the most pressing issue: Lydia has been invited to the Restoration Ball and she hasn't got a thing to wear.

If, like me, you sometimes relish your romantic suspense with a paranormal twist, join me for After Glow.

Sincerely,

Jayne Ann Krentz, writing as Jayne Castle

great followup to After Dark

After Glow was like part 2 of After Dark. It finished up some story lines and started some new ones. I love the Harmony series.

Why destroy a good book?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This would have been a great book it the sex had been left up to the imagination. I would have to fast forward thru those parts. So I did not like it.

LOL

I have read the all of the Harmony series and I was a moron when I started listening to this one. I accidently started with part 2 on this one and I kept think boy they are moving fast and missing lots of stuff. By the time I realised my mistake I was almost done with it. I know that I would have enjoyed it better if I had started with the right part first. So a warning double check which part you start with on all audios.

Another dead body for Lydia and Emmett

Would you consider the audio edition of After Glow to be better than the print version?

They are equally enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of After Glow?

When Lydia informs Emmett they're getting married that afternoon.

What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joyce Bean has clearly defined characterizations and an enjoyable interpretation of the material. Her men sound like men and her women sound like women.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a lot in this book and fell in love with Fuzz all over again.

Any additional comments?

I want a dustbunny.

Strong characters, Original story

Would you listen to After Glow again? Why?

I have read this book several times already. I love Jayne Castle's world of Harmony. Her books typically have a happy ending, but I love that. The story is unique, the characters likable and entertaining.

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed the dust bunny secret, psychic connection.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorites scenes are usually when the girl and boy finally get together. After all, it is a romance book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love the connection between the hero/heroine and the dust bunny.

One of her best

This is one of Jayne's best. Because this is the second book centered around Lydia and Emmett, there's much more character development. And, they face problems that use both normal and paranormal skills to solve. Great romance, some lovely dialogue, andorra of fun.

I can count one this author for a good light read

I enjoy this author because the relationships in her books are clean and simple, the dialog is fun and there is some mystery and suspense. As Amanda Quick/ Jayne Anne Krentz/ Jayne Castle she does have a pattern to all of her books but I find this a welcome change after I read, say, Sandra Brown who keeps you on your toes.

Couldn't finish it

I couldn't even get past the second chapter. Don't waste your time. The story line is nonexistant. And the narrator is flat.

excellent narration makes for entertaining listen

This builds on the previous book in the series. It has a decent mix of romance and adventure . It throws a few new insights into the characters and of course has a great dust bunny character. It's fun to listen to if you like these books but kudos to the narrator for her handling of the different characters
