In the alien catacombs of Rainshadow, there are creatures whose compelling songs lure the unwary to their death. That’s why Rafe Coppersmith, hired to clear out the catacombs for exploration, needs a music talent. He’s knows the perfect one, but she probably doesn’t want anything do with him...
Ella Morgan had once fallen hard and fast for Rafe, but then he disappeared for months…and he’s not about to tell her why. Ella, too, has secrets that only her dust bunny knows. She’s not just a music talent, she’s a Siren: a paranormal singer capable of singing men to sleep—or to their deaths.
But once on Rainshadow, Rafe and Ella will learn that surrendering to passion doesn’t come without risks—and fighting fire with fire only adds to the flame…
What I liked: Ms Castle's (AKA Jayne Ann Krentz) writing is like coming home to a great cup of coffee. I know exactly what to expect and she never lets me down with the Harmony world. Siren's Call is not exactly a spin-off but a series within a series maybe. It still takes place in the Harmony world but all the action happens on Rainshadow Island.
If you think the Harmony series is "different" then wait until you meet the characters populating Rainshadow Island. I get the impression that Rainshadow was a research center of sorts for the aliens. It certainly has it's fair share of weird creatures and places. The Preserve (on Rainshadow Island) is not a place for people to take a relaxing walk. The island and the Preserve are not only mysterious but can be deadly.
Ms Castle just keeps upping the ante with her characters and mysteries surrounding the Harmony world. Ella is a Siren, a fact she and her family are keeping secret but a chance meeting with Rafe Coppersmith opens up all kinds of possibilities for her and for him.
The romance is quick but appealing. Their respective "talents" are off the charts and together they are even stronger. Within minutes of their second meeting and projected business deal, Ella and Rafe find themselves the target of a kidnapping. Is it their partnership or their talents the kidnappers are interested in?
What I didn't like: How many ways can you say NOTHING. I loved this book because no matter what mood I'm in, when I read a Jayne Castle book, I end up with a smile on my face!!
Lastly, all I can say is....dust bunnies!!! I would love to have one someday!
Highly Recommended BUT you need to start with the Harmony series and work your way forward. You'll be in for a real treat and have a smile on your face!
