"Running Hot" is #5 of #12, in the Jayne Ann Krentz, Arcane Society series. I look forward to reading more of the series. Romance-suspense with a psychic twist.
This author also goes by the name Amanda Quick & Jayne Castle.

Enjoy

Another fabulous Arcane Society book. I am really loving this series. And Running Hot is excellent. Featuring the mismatched pair of librarian Grace and ex-cop Luther, the action is great, the mystery is intriguing, and the romance is steamy. I love it!

The characters in this quintessential Jayne Ann Krentz book are the reason why she's been one of my favorite authors for 20+ years. If you enjoyed the Eclipse Bay series, Arizona Snow makes a return visit in this book, with new background information revealed.

Ex-cop Luther Malone, lifelong member of the secretive paranormal organization known as the Arcane Society, is waiting to meet Grace Renquist. Hired as an aura-reading consultant in the quest for a murder suspect, she's got zero field experience. She's from tiny Eclipse Bay, Oregon. She's a librarian, for heaven's sake.

As for Grace, she's not expecting much, either, from Malone, who walks with a cane and isn't so good with a gun. Nice resume for a bodyguard.

But even before they reach their hotel in Maui-where they'll be posing as honeymooners-Grace and Luther feel the electric charge between them. Problem is, they need to remain vigilant day and night; because it soon becomes clear there's more going on here. Rogue sensitives-operatives for the underground group Nightshade-are pouring into the luxury resort as if there's a convention. Grace recognizes those dark spikes in their auras. She saw the same pattern in someone else in another life-a life she hasn't revealed to Luther or anyone else. And she understands how dangerous these people can be... especially with those parahunters at their sides.

While the pair's employers at Jones & Jones scramble to get them backup, Luther and Grace have to think on their feet. The criminals in their midst aren't just high-level sensitives, they've enhanced their talents with a potent and unpredictable drug.

And Grace knows all too well, if you don't control your powers, your powers will control you.

"Without that talent, all the business insight in the world is useless. Building a financial empire isn't just about the numbers and the bottom line. It's about identifying and exploiting your opponent's strengths and weaknesses."
