The second book in Raintree series by Linda Winstead Jones was more than I had expected.

Everything seemed to be in its right place.
Well-written story, interesting plot, likable hero and heroine, and fast-paced and easy to read. But there was something missing from the story. I felt no sparks, no fireworks. I wanted to feel more charming chemistry between a hero and heroine.

So I ended up giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Gideon'u Dante'den daha çok sevdim, belki bilemiyorum Emma yüzündendir. Artık temmuz gelse de finali okusak.

*spoiler free review*

This was my first book by Linda Winstead Jones and my favorite story of the trilogy.

The story happens at the same time as book 1. Gideon is Dante little bro. Where Dante can master fire, Gideon masters electricity and as a side effect of that gift he can see and talk to ghosts. Which come handy when it comes to solve crimes.

Even though Gideon doesn't have the jerkish tendencies of Linda Howard's heroes, he's HOT and sneaky. Lorna is a strong and warm woman who isn't afraid

İlk olarak Harlequin yayınlarına teşekkür ediyorum bizleri bu seriyle buluşturdukları için... Çok hoşuma gitti :) İlk kitapta ateşi yöneten Dante'yi burada da elektriği kontrol eden Gideon'u okuduk... Dante'nin hikayesi öyle bir yerde bitmişti ki bu ayı sabırsızlıkla bekledim ama gel gör ki Gideon'un ki de farklı olmadı... Asıl olaylar son kitaba kaldı anlaşılan... Dante ve Gideon kardeşler hazır sığınaktaki Mercy'e yardıma koşuyorlar... İki haftacık daha sabredip neler olduğunu okuyacağım :D Ki ...more

This was barely an okay story. Dual Narration= the male narrator was good the female narrator was AWFUL (audible review)

Okay so the story was just okay nothing great. Could have been written better. I liked Gideon Raintree, he was sexy and had some electrical powers. Hope was just MEH. No character development at all with her character. The chemistry and romance seemed forced.

The story line and plot lacked a lot of elements, like why was this crazy lady trying to kill them? Don't know, I never

Bayıldım harika bir macera idi.Bence ilk kitap Cehennemden her bakımdan daha iyi idi..Üzgünüm ama bu sefer Linda Howard gölgede kaldı Lİnda Winstead Jones'ın yanında..Hikayede hiç bir kopma kafa karışıklığı yoktu..İlk kitapda da yoktu ama sanki bu hikayede aşk,macera romantizm müthiş idi..Vee Dante'den Gideon karakterini daha çok beğendim..
İlk kitaptaki Lorna karakteri kadar Adalet'teki Hope karakteri de beni sinir etti zaman zaman..Fakat bu macerada kurgu karakterler çok daha iyi harmanlanmıştı

Harlequin yayınlarının bizlerle buluşturduğu Raintree serisinin 2. kitabını 3 çıkmaya çok yakınken okudum. Tüm serinin tamamlanmasını beklemediğime hafif bir pişmalığım da yok değil. Bazı detaylar ister istemez unutuluyor.

Cehennem'in sonunda 2 ve 3'ün ilk bölümlerini okumuştum. Özellikle Gideon ilgimi çekmişti. Kızını görmesi falan çok merak uyandırıcıydı.

It wasn't quite a one-night stand but damned close. If my Kindle hadn't run out of power, I would have finished this exciting, sexy story before I went to bed. Book Two in the Raintree series is definitely a page turner. Our hero, Gideon, harnesses the powers of lightning and electricity. Oh yeah, and he sees and talks to ghosts. This is a very handy ability to have since he is the only homicide detective in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. That is, until his new partner, Hope, shows up and s ...more

A tad better than the first book, inferno, but still rich of romance. Gideon personality is different than Dante, but then they're both are example of dominant male, complete with their perfect physical attribute (hahaha). The story this time is about a murder and Gideon as a homicide detective investigate it until the new partner came. A beautiful sexy smart police woman. Add that to Gideon ability to talk to dead people And could also work as personal charger (very neat right?). But for me, Ho ...more

This was a very good paranormal romantic suspense set in present day Wilmington, NC. Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, comes from a family gifted with supernatural abilities. Gideon's gift is the power to harness electricity and talk to ghosts, which comes in handy when he's investigating a crime scene and can speak directly to the dead victim's ghost, enabling him to identify the killer in a much quicker time frame than would normally be possible. Gideon prefers to work alone (it's much ea ...more

(sex, adult situations) I was not overly impressed with this book. This book is the second book in the series and rounds out what happens to the third Raintree sibling during the same period of time as the rest of the trilogy. While many others like this book, I didn't. Why? Well, even though it was written by another author, I wanted series continuity. This author put way more sex into this book than what you will find in the others. There was also an entire "I definitely believe in reincarnati ...more

Raintree adalah sebuah klan dari sebuah keluarga yang mempunyai keahlian khusus. Buku kedua dari trilogy Raintree ini berkisah tentang Gideon Raintree, seorang polisi, atau tepatnya detektif polisi yang condong bekerja tanpa ada rasa keinginan untuk memiliki partner, karena merasa partner hanya mengganggu pekerjaannya saja. Keahlian khusus dari Gideon seperti judul dari buku ini ialah sebagai Pengendali Badai. Badai selalu berasosiasi dengan petir, sedangkan petir dengan listrik, ya, itulah keah ...more

Their name is Raintree. It’s more than a last name; more than a notation on a family tree. It’s a mark of destiny. Each family member has a special gift, an otherworldly talent. Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, can harness electricity and talk to ghosts. He will need to wield gifts he’s kept hidden to solve his newest case — a relentless serial killer unleashed by the dark Ansara wizards. But first he must deal with his

Mungkin karena plotnya jelas, ga keburu - buru, suspensenya dapet, dan ada adegan di kamar mandi (waaaaa)

Gideon selalu didatengin sama hantu. Hanya saja, ini bukan sembarang hantu, tapi anaknya Gideon yang dateng dari masa depan! Weleh, kalo jadi Gideon, udah pipis di tempat tidur kali ya, wekekek. Hanya saja Gideon ini sebenarnya bisa liat hantu, selain itu dia adalah penguasa badai (atau petir, lupa ane). Suatu saat ada kasus pembun

A série Raintree conta com três livros cada um escrito por uma escritora diferente. No entanto contam a história dos três irmãos Raintree.
Sendo o primeiro o de Dante Raintree, escrito pela Linda Howard.
Dante, tal como os irmãos, possui o dom orientando então o fogo, o seu elemento. Dono de um Casino muito conhecido chamado Inferno, e de onde ele gere os negócios da pequena família Raintree. Mas, alguém anda a ganhar demasiado dinh

İlk kitap Cehennem Linda Howard kaleminden yazılmıştı ve Adale'te adaşı Linda Winstead Jones tarafından yazılmış ve 3. kitap Sığınak ise Beverly Barton tarafından yazıldı.

Mungkin buku ini akan lebih bagus kalau saya baca sebelum Raintree Sanctuary, karena dibaca sesudah Raintree Sanctuary, jadi yah rada turun klimax-nya hehehe

Seri kedua Raintree ini bercerita mengenai Gideon si anak tengah. Tapi pendapat saya, cerita tentang Gideon ini sangat standar Harlequin, banyak adegan ML dan ceritanya lebih menyingkap kasus pembunuhan berantai yang terjadi karena pekerjaan tokoh2 utama sendiri adalah polisi. Untuk bagian suspense-nya juga kurang karena sejak awal kita mema

Pleasantly surprised--better than the first book

I liked the characters and mystery/suspense storyline. The paranormal elements were also really original--the hero's ability to talk to ghosts (helpful in his job as a homicide cop) and control electricity. I've read a lot of PNR, and haven't come across many with ghosts. I loved the apparition of Emma, his daughter to be, and how it freaked him out--cute, original and humorous. I liked the hero better in this book than the fellow from the first bo

akhirnya bertemu muka dengan anak kedua, Gideon Raintree yang digambarkan iseng dan semaunya.
kemampuannya standart, bisa melihat roh. yang luar biasa itu kemampuan mengendalikan listriknya, walaupun menimbulkan kerusakan sana-sini.

kemampuannya mengingatkan pembaca pada film terkenal X men. tapi hanya sampai situ batas kemiripannya. Buku Gideon ini lebih menyenangkan ketika dibaca. ringan dan mengalir begitu saja.

A mediocre read at best, Raintree: Haunted seemed to lack a lot of the elements that I like to see in a book. The plot was thin, the characters didn’t grab me, and I fought the urge to skim through the novel for at least 80% of it. The main male character, Gideon, was more likable than the main male in the first novel of this trilogy, but he still irritated me with his stubborn, chauvinistic attitude and cliché sex appeal.

I wouldn’t recommend this novel because it was deficient in excitement an
