Even the mysterious world of Harmony has people who don't quite fit in. They're drawn to places like Rainshadow Island, a beautiful sanctuary where anyone can feel safe--and where secrets are closely guarded... Schooled in an exotic form of martial arts, and with the ability to detect the auras of dangerous psychic criminals, Rachel Bonner and her dust bunny companion have found peace and quiet on Rainshadow Island, operating a bookstore and cafe. But her tranquil new life is thrown into chaos when Harry Sebastian, the descendant of a notorious pirate, arrives to investigate strange developments in the privately owned woods known as the Preserve. Immediately drawn to the amber-eyed woman, Harry must tread carefully. While Rachel's special talents can help him track down dangerous rogues who have violated the Preserve, they can also sense the heart of darkness within him. But desire can weaken the strongest of defenses--and leave even the strongest man wanting more...

FYI - This review is written by a huge Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz) fan. I have been reading her books for over 15 years now and I have no plans on stopping!
Rachel Blake has an unusual psychic talent as an aura healer, and an unusual childhood. After trying to fit in with the mainstream community and finding that it isn't working for her, she moves to Rainshadow Island. There she reopen's her Aunts bookstore and sells not only books she also sells her very own specially blended just for you teas. Soon she meets Harry Sebastian who has been to Rainshadow Island to check on the unusual paranormal activity happening in the Preserve, his family's private woods.
Harry is drawn to Rachel and thinks she might be the key in helping find out what is going on at the Preserve. After all, she is the only person who has ever gone missing in the Preserve and lived even though she doesn't remember it.
Big surprise - I loved The Lost Night. I always feel like Jayne Castle's characters are people I wish I knew in real life. They have such personalities and interesting psychic abilities. Then we have the dust bunnies. I want one so bad!! Darwina always seem to steal the show in whatever scene she was in. The plot didn't have any big surprises in it but it was a nice mystery/romance. All in all it is a book I can see myself rereading and enjoying again.
The Lost Night is the first book the Rainshadow series, a spinoff of the Harmony series. It can be read as a standalone. This is an adult paranormal romance with a suspenseful mystery set in a futuristic world.
"No matter who she's writing as, whether it's as Castle, Jayne Ann Krentz or Amanda Quick, this is one author who never, ever disappoints."--"Fresh Fiction" "Jayne Castle, one of the pioneers of the futuristic subgenre, continues to set the standard against which all other such books are judged."--"Affaire de Coeur" "Writing under Jayne Castle, Jayne Ann Krentz takes her trademark combination of witty, upbeat action, lively sensuality, and appealing characters to [a] unique, synergistic world."--"Library Journal"
