Siren's Call by Jayne Castle
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 knows the perfect one, but she probably doesn't want anything to 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...
I love the Rainshadow series and this is another amazing entry. Ella and Rafe are a fantastic couple and Lorelei is a super dust bunny! Just when I worry that the books are going to begin feeling formulaic, Jayne Castle switches things up and adds tension. This book felt more tightly focused than the last entry or two in the series. I also really enjoyed that while I guessed one of the baddies another came out of left field and surprised me. I also enjoyed reading about the various weddings that Ella was a part of, especially the last one!
All of the entities that make this series, and all of the Harmony books, so great are here: a strong heroine whose skills perfectly compliment the rakish, sexy hero; a fantastic dust bunny; friends from previous books, ties to books written as Jayne Ann Krentz, and hints as to where future stories might leave. BUT, this book is more than just that...it is also a fast-paced puzzle with pieces both obvious and not parceled out at the perfect rate. Without getting into the specifics of the plot, which is best discovered on your own, just know that this is the perfect way to spend a few hours!
