Summary: (from goodreads) The New York Times bestselling author delivers an all-new novel set on the mysterious Rainshadow Island.
With the ability to detect the auras of dangerous psychic criminals, Rachel Bonner has found peace and quiet on Rainshadow Island with her dust bunny companion. Then Harry Sebastian, the descendant of a notorious pirate, arrives to investigate strange developments in the privately owned woods known as the Preserve. Rachel can sense the heart of darkness within him— and the stirrings of desire within her own soul...
Rachel Blake has an unusual psychic talent as an aura healer, and an unusual childhood living in a commune. 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 reopens her Aunt’s bookstore where she sells not only books but also her very own specially blended just for you teas. Soon she meets Harry Sebastian who has come 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 second book the Rainshadow series, a spin off 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.
