The New York Times-bestselling author of Sizzle and Burn has a brand-new Arcane Society novel.
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 r�sum� 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 like 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 para-hunters 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 as Grace knows all too well, if you don't control your powers, your powers will control you. . . .
A heroine who can see dark energy flashes in a villain's aura and a hero who can squelch villainous thoughts before they're put into action go to paradise to find a murderer, but find love, sex and a nest of drug-enhanced evildoers instead in Krentz's latest Arcane Society novel. Librarian Grace Renquist and ex-cop-turned-bartender Luther Malone, both members of the centuries-old Arcane Society, join forces when the psychic investigative agency Jones & Jones hires Grace, with Luther as her bodyguard, to find a killer in Hawaii. Luther quickly realizes Grace is not your normal paranormal, but their hot romance is put (briefly) on hold as they learn that Nightshade, drug-fueled supernatural baddies, are after the same murderer--as is the lethal psychic hunter La Sir�ne, an opera diva with a killer voice. The plot is fast, steamy and wildly entertaining even if it defies credulity. Krentzs fans will enjoy this outing and appreciate the teaser that readers have not seen the last of this power couple.

1 . Good beach read
Posted February 28, 2011 by Lizabeth S. Tucker , Port St. LucieRomance, mystery, and paranormal talents combined with a wicked sense of humor. It hardly gets better than this. Running Hot is a great fast read, perfect for the beach (if we ever see warm weather again) or that pampering spa day. Although each book stands on its own, it is always more enjoyable to read the series in order to get a feel of the history of the Arcane Society. And, as always, the supporting characters are as interesting as the hero and heroine.
2 . Another great paranormal mystery!
Posted May 09, 2009 by LakeMartinGal , Dadeville, ALThis is a nice mix of interesting paranormal talents and traits with the romantic suspense we expect from a Krentz book -- no matter what name she writes it under! While the ending may be assumed, the path is full of twists, emotions and excitement!
