Two Romance novels, please help!, Name that Book (lokakuuta 2016)
Help finding a three in one romance novel, Name that Book (maaliskuu 2013)


Any visit to Harmony and the dust bunnies is a welcome one but I felt like this installment didn’t quite get off the ground. I kept waiting for the heart of the story...the danger, the romance, the adventure and it never happened. The main characters, Molly and Joshua, quickly achieved their objective, rescue the lost expedition and then the rest was mostly filler with a side of dust bunnies. While it set up the next book in the series I wish there had just been a little more...Jayne Ann in this one.… (lisätietoja)

Working as a profiler for the Federal Bureau of Psi Investigation proves to be a little more dangerous than Ravenna Chastain had anticipated. After being kidnapped by a cult that wanted to burn her as a witch, she decided to make a career change.

Now a matchmaker in Illusion Town, she only has to deal with finding matches for covenant marriages for her clients. But Ethan Sweetwater isn't the sort of client the business is looking for. He is a member of one of the premier families on Harmony with talents that reach back to the old world of Earth, but his strong talents and inclination to secrecy makes it hard to find a perfect match for him.

Ravenna wants to fire him, but Ethan demands his final contracted date, and he wants it to be with her. This has some positives for Ravenna too since she needs to find a date to her grandparents' anniversary party. Agreeing to "fake" date him to give him some pointers on his dating techniques should be a simple exercise. However, his ulterior motives put both of them in the crosshairs of a man who wants Sweetwater dead before he can expose his connection with Vortex.

And Ravenna has an enemy of her own who wants her dead. Both Ethan and Ravenna find themselves beset by a variety of enemies. But Ethan's biggest problem is convincing Ravenna that their "fake" dates should lead to a real covenant marriage.

Narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, the story moves along at a quick pace. The banter between the two takes on a new life when the story is heard rather than read. And there is a lot of banter...

Fans of Harmony and dust bunnies will also like getting to know Harriet who has a penchant for collecting pens.

This book was so much fun, as Amanda Quick's books always are. I read it all in one night.
Evangeline is strong, intelligent, and resourceful, and Lucas is her match. I really like how he takes her seriously as an intellectual equal even though he teases her about her writing.
The story has elements from Quick's earlier paranormals, including her system of psychic powers and the use of crystals, and the garden was a character in itself. At one point I was reminded of Maleficent's forest of thorns - plants that are aware and inimical.
Evangeline's friends were lovely, and I am definitely looking forward to their stories. I hope Beth and Tony show up again too!
