This paranormal romance series includes Jayne’s trademark crystals, auras, and psychic energies, similar to her Arcane and Vanza lore, but it’s thankfully!!! It’s an enjoyable suspense romance, fill 3. It’s an enjoyable suspense romance, filled with warmth and wit, typical of JAK. I liked this more than some of her recent krejtz.
He falls for Abby, an expert in antique books, able to decrypt psychically hot books. Krentz did a decent job developing the relationship, even though they do jump into bed the first night, totally ruining the anticipation, sadly. Sam knows instantly that Abby is “the one” but Abby takes a bit longer.
Like a day or two the whole story takes less than a week. Abby has a dog named Newton. I enjoyed the scenes with her dog — a nice change from dust bunnies. Sam has a powerful ring made of a Phoenix stone that his dad Elias unearthed from a mine 40 years ago. All the Phoenix stones are charged with cpper energy. Lander Knox wants the Phoenix stones, and the notebooks, and the location of the mine the stones came from. He needs Abby to decrypt the lab notebook to learn how to activate and control the stones.
He will kill to get his hands on Abby or the stones. Sam Coppersmith coppr kill to protect Abby and keep the dangerous stones out of enemy hands. That’s the plot, in a cooper. I expect these powerful Phoenix stones will figure in each book in the developing series, along with Sam’s two siblings, Judson and Emma. Their stones are apparently the coppwr legacy” from their father — hence the series title.
But the dark legacy is also the paranormal ability that Sam, Judson, and Emma got when the powerful energy in the mine “zapped” the DNA in the three not-yet-born children’s father, Elias. The story is told in 3rd person, mainly Abby or Sam.
But meanwhile, he did not have to like the fact that he was playing second fiddle to a cat burglar and a psychic who reads auras for a living, to say nothing of a dog. Abby, Nick, and Gwen were best friends since their teens, when all three were incarcerated at the Summerlight Academy.
He’s the token charming gay character ubiquitous to JAK novels. A fun read, slightly better than average and well written, but not a keeper or repeater. Plus, the author lost points because of the lengthy info dumping scene, towards the end. View besch 15 comments. Oct 12, Cristina rated it really liked it. He was a brave dog and made the story funny sometimes.
May 10, Debbie rated it did not like it. This author used to be one of my old favourites, but I honestly have not enjoyed any of her books in years. This book is another example of how her writing has stagnated with the same basic plot bdach has been reused in countless books now. Personality deprived main characters form an alliance for business reasons, instantly realize they are meant to be together for no apparent reason and fall into an intimate relationship within hours of meeting, then a lot of nonsensical paranormal drivel happe This author used to be one of my old favourites, but I honestly have not enjoyed any of her books in years.
Personality deprived main characters form an alliance for business reasons, instantly realize they are meant to be together for no apparent reason and fall into an intimate relationship within hours of meeting, then a lot of nonsensical paranormal drivel happens before a slightly climatic ending in a showdown with a mentially unbalanced villain.
Give the female protagonist a cute pet, and this book is the same as the last dozen and doubtlessly the next dozen. Count me out, I’m done. Jan 10, Jess the Romanceaholic rated it liked it. I didn’t really feel any chemistry between Sam and Abby, but was told over and over and over that they had some mystical connection. I buy every book Ms.
Krentz publishes, but I think it’s simply a matter of she’s written so much and I’ve read them allthat I have trouble differentiating her characters and her plots from her earlier ones. Sam and Abby could have been switched out with any hero and heroine from pretty much any of her books, and I probably wouldn’t have noticed. Add to tha Meh. Add to that the dog. So in the end, well, meh. May 24, Shawna rated it did not like it Shelves: However, as a standalone read, this fell completely flat for me.

I can usually deal with it, though I’m not big on insta-love as a trope. Also, I wish the auth Not one of my favorite Krentz titles, but still enjoyable for the most part. Also, I wish the author would come up with some alternate phrases for one heightening one’s abilities.
She relies on the word ‘jacked’, and it grows a little tiresome after awhile. There was a doggie character, though. I loved the dog! May 09, Laura Kyahgirl rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed the characters and their paranormal talents as well as the mystery and world building.
I both read and listened to this book. Tanya Eby is an excellent narrator. View all 12 comments. This coppfr just so bad. Krfntz I like me some romantic fiction and some Amanda Quick one of the alternate pen name of this author. Maybe this pen name is for her fiction writing – less romance – but I’m thinking she’s not so good at that. All the dialogue was stale and expected and normally she has her characters in fun quirky conversations.
Not to mention the redundancy of all the “para” talk. And auras, mrentz psi, and dreamscapes. Felt like I fell into a hippie store on Haight with no way out. That’s odd, too, as I’m pretty sure I read another book under the Quick name set in Regency time where the lead female as all into alternative realities and her male lover was most definitely not but I felt the author handled that so much better.
I recall there being witty dialogue between the believing female and the skeptic male and that drove the story – it never demanded that you believe the “para” stuff unlike this one that basically sits down in a pile of it and wallows.
Nothing drives this story but tedium. And JAK does it again. If there’s an author that succeeds in blending suspense, romance, and paranormal in an engrossing, believable, rather realistic, and understandable book, it’s her. Though I haven’t seen this book mentioned as part of the Arcane Society series, it’s safe to say it’s a spin-off.
Because you’ll find all the Arcane elements in it. I absolutely loved it and can’t wait to read more about the Coppersmith family, which I suppose will feature prominently in the future books since Sam the hero has a sister, Emma, and a brother, Judson, who are still single.
