She lives in the Pacific Northwest.
Plagued by nightmares after exploring a strange psi-disorienting mirror maze in the ancient underground ruins and fearing its instability could destroy Harmony's infrastructure, Adam Winters, new boss of the local Ghost Hunter Guild, senses the ancient Burning Lamp is the key, but he needs help finding it. He just doesn't expect aid to come from Marlowe Jones, the new head of the shadowy Jones & Jones agency and dreamlight reader par excellence. But someone else is after the lamp, too, and will stop at nothing, even murder, to get what he wants. A pair of well-matched protagonists, an evil para-sociopathic killer, and a deadly curse add up to an intriguing mystery, a steamy, psychically enhanced romance, and another imaginative foray into the haunts of Harmony. Verdict With her classic, sassy flair, Castle brings this engrossing trilogy (Fired Up by Jayne Ann Krentz; Running Hot by Amanda Quick) to a satisfying and thoroughly delightful conclusion, putting the old Winters/Jones feud to rest in a most romantic way. Castle (Obsidian Prey) lives in the Seattle area. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
