Readers who like their tales romantic, suspenseful and spiced with ""a paranormal twist"" will welcome Harmony, which includes the 2000 novel After Dark and the 1999 novella ""Bridal Jitters"" by bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz writing as Jayne Castle. Both take place on Harmony, a future world of psychics and ghost hunters: a para-archeologist and a studly dissonance-energy para-resonator team up to solve a murder and uncover mutual passion in the former; in the latter, a woman considers calling off the upcoming wedding that will cap her two-year marriage of convenience to a business partner (""a tough, sleek male"") because she loves him but he, too, has hidden desires.
