Weekend Book Club--Deception Cove by Jayne Castle and For the Love of Magic by Janet Chapman

Jayne Ann Krentz is an automatic buy for me. I don't care which pen name she's writing under--Jayne Ann Krentz, Stephanie James, Amanda Glass, Jayne Bentley, Jayne Taylor, Jayne Castle or Amanda Quick. She was the first major romance author I ever read and I've read almost all of her books. The only exceptions  are some of her early books, which are almost impossible to find.

DECEPTION COVE by Jayne Castle is her latest Rainshadow novel. This is a face-paced love story with a fascinating mystery at the heart of it. I really enjoy this author's futuristic books and love the dust bunnies. You might want to read The Lost Night first if you haven't been following the series.


As a light-talent, Alice North has the rare ability to make things disappear, including herself—a gift that comes in handy during her magic act with her dust bunny Houdini.

Business mogul Drake Sebastian is day-blind, since his sight was nearly destroyed in a lab accident. But he’s the one man who can see Alice when she disappears—and he needs her.

On Rainshadow Island, two dangerous Old World crystals are missing, igniting a paranormal storm. Drake thinks Alice is the key to finding them, and proposes they head there, but only after a Marriage of Convenience.

Alice’s honeymoon on Rainshadow is guaranteed to be memorable, as the island—and the passion between her and Drake—is about to explode…

The other book I read this week is FOR THE LOVE OF MAGIC by Janet Chapman. This is part of her Spellbound Falls series. Chapman's books are heartwarming romances with a touch of magic. This book gives readers a whole new take on the idea of gods and goddesses. It's fun, romantic and well worth reading, but I would suggest you read the books in order or you might not enjoy it as much as you should.

While I enjoy her Spellbound Falls series, I really love her Highlander series. I mean how can you not love a man in a kilt, especially one who has come from the past to modern times.


After forty years of marriage, Rana Oceanus has done the unthinkable and run away from her mighty, magical husband. Not that she ran very far, having purchased a house in Spellbound Falls right on the shore of the Bottomless Sea, where she intends to prepare for the scariest battle of her life. The only flaw in her plan, however, is that she is still very much in love with Titus…

Shocked and deeply shaken that his wife really has left him—though he still can’t fathom why—Titus sets out to win her back. But when grand gestures of his esteem don’t seem to further his cause, he conjures up some of his original courtship magic.

But his plan backfires when Titus discovers that dealing with demons is far less threatening than the little secret his very mortal wife has been keeping from him...

Thank you the recommends. I am currently between books for fun, namely the new title from Evangeline Anderson Purity and books for work by Kevin Mitnick.
