Running Hot

Jayne Ann Krentz, Author . Putnam $24.95 (337p) ISBN 978-0-399-15521-5

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 Sirène, an opera diva with a killer voice. The plot is fast, steamy and wildly entertaining even if it defies credulity. Krentz’s fans will enjoy this outing and appreciate the teaser that readers have not seen the last of this power couple.
