This was a great deal of fun. By now in the series, you should know what to expect. While this series does better than most at keeping each book independent of the others, I'd still recommend at least reading the first two before later volumes. One of the benefits of doing so is that you'll know whether you like these books in general. Castle does a great job maintaining the same tone and general expectations without being predictable or formulaic.

I liked this one much better than the last one.

“Dust bunnies rule!!!!!! Jayne Castle is another pseudonym of Jayne Ann Krentz. Jayne Castle books are more futuristic and paranormal. Dust bunnies are pets of the humans inhabitants of the planet Harmony and have captured the hearts of many fans of this series. Just finished this book and thought it was a superb addition to the other Harmony books. Loved Max and Araminta, the two latest dust bunnies to make our acquaintance. Davis and Celinda, hero and heroine, made a great couple. Well plotted ...more

Ok story but I wouldn't recommend buying it.

It sounded creative: humans and pets with psychic abilities and living on another planet, but it felt like a "made-for-tv movie." The book seemed formulaic. The hero and heroine (Davis and Celinda) met, fought and chased the bad guys and ended up in love. I was hoping for creative or witty dialogue which was not there. Nothing surprised or delighted me. The characters seemed like copies of characters from other books. In one scene, Celinda was too whin
Let's start with something different this time. I don’t understand the adversity of these heroine toward the Guild. I simply don’t. “Hunters [Guild men] are just glorified mobsters, good enough only to provide not-so-much needed protection underground.” Yeah? I didn’t hear any of the heroines so far protest and diss the Guild while the heroes protected them from becoming ghost bait. But as soon as the danger has passed, let’s go back to bitching about the Guild.
I mean, sure, the organization has
Author: Jayne Ann Krentz writing as Jayne Castle
First published: 2007
Length: 441 pages (Large Print)
Setting: Around 200 years in the future on the planet Harmony, cut off from Earth. In Cadence City.
Sex: Very explicit, infrequent
Hero: PI
Heroine: marriage consultant.

Filled with references to Krentz/Castle/Quick's Arcane Society series as well as other Harmony books, Silver Master is yet another enjoyable, quality Krentz/Castle paranormal romance.

Of course, it's much like other books in the series

Great Addition to the Harmony Series

SILVER MASTER is the fourth book in the Harmony series. The Harmony series is a futuristic paranormal romantic suspense series about an earth colony which was cut off from earth and where psychic abilities have been developing in humans. This book is the story of Celinda Ingram, a matchmaker building a new life after a horrendous scandal. She meets security specialist Davis Oakes when he comes in search of a missing relic. She is determined to stay away from h

After the horrible scandal in her old town, matchmaker Celinda Ingram tries to make a new life for herself in Cadence City. She's very good at what she does because of her rare para-resonator abilities. Everyone in Harmony has some ability, but hers is particularly strong. Davis Oakes also has a powerful ability which allows him to go invisible. He's tracking a rare artifact and Celinda just happens to have possession of it. Several devious people want to get their hands on it too. Davis has to ...more

This was another fun book in the Harmony series. Overall, I haven't been disappointed in one of these yet. The two lead characters were fun and had good interaction. It's fun to see all the new discoveries and new talents coming to light in Harmony. A solid, enjoyable read.
Book 4 of the Harmony Series by Jayne Castle (Jayne Ann Krentz)

Celinda Ingram is a matchmaker and para-resonater working in Cadence City. She bought an old relic that looked like drawer knob because her dust bunny Araminta seemed to want it. Returning from lunch one day she finds a police detective and a private investigator in her office.

They want to talk to her about the relic she purchased. It seems that it was stolen from the local Guild Office, who hired Private Detective Davis Oakes to fin

This is another in a fun series that takes place on another world where humans have developed psy abilities. The world has its own dangers that the humans face as they handle common human problems of power hungry sociopaths. Celinda and Davis have to deal with nosey neighbors, loving family members, and the powermad, while protecting an ancient relic of unknown capabilities. Along the way, they have to deal with their own pasts as they look to the future.

A quick read, but very entertaining. I'm

Romantic suspense with a fantasy element. Very entertaining with lots of action and two dust bunnies stealing the scenes. I was fully engaged from page one and read it quickly over two days. Celinda and Davis were great together. Nothing I like better than two characters who are attracted to one another but create numerous excuses for why the relationship would never work. I've become a real fan of this series. Given that I don't always warm to Castle's characters, I'm pleasantly surprised to fi ...more

This is another fun paranormal romantic suspense set on the futuristic planet of Harmony. Unlike Earth, the majority of inhabitants on Harmony have some level of psychic ability, thought to be caused by the prevalent green quartz located all across the planet. Matchmaker Celinda Ingram has recently moved to Cadence City to start over fresh after a scandal forced her to change locations. When Celinda buys a "new" toy for her pet dust bunny at an antiquities shop, she has no idea that several part ...more

I love all Jayne Ann Krentz's books, but the whole "Curtain" series is my favourite. "Silver Master" is the 4th in the Harmony part of the series and is as absorbing as the remaining ones. The basic formula is more or less the same - a handsome, strong man with out-of-scale paranormal power and an independent yet feminine woman with equally developed paranormal talent, working together towards solving a case and saving the woman at the same time. With each book the author manages to make the sto ...more
Paranormal Romance
The heroine is desperate to start over after a scandal in her past resulted in the loss of her business and reputation. Now, a Guild detective is asking questions about an artifact in her possession and her dust bunny has hidden the damn thing so he refuses to leave. But she admits to herself that though he's not someone to be taken lightly, she's drawn to him. At first she imagines him to be the perfect man but the fact that he's associated with the Guide, an organization she believes to be thi ...more

Feel like you need some easy reading time? Then join me on the fascinating future planet of Harmony, discovered through and between Jayne Ann Krentz’s different series and pen names! This famous and best-selling author has been writing since 1979, usually with a paranormal twist to her romances. Around the turn of the millennium she began a new series in a new setting—the distant planet, Harmony. Although she has used up to 7 different pen names, currently she only uses three.

This book was a departure for me. Usually if I'm reading Jayne Ann Krentz aka Jayne Castle, it's under her historical fiction pseudonym, Amanda Quick. But, this was tagged as an upcoming book for her futuristic series that deals with paranormal (read: psyhic) characters. I thought I'd give it a shot.

Harmony, the world where the story takes place, is an alien world that's been colonized by Earth residents. A portal opened between the two worlds, allowing travel between them. Then, 200 years ago,
This installment of Jayne Ann Krentz's (writing as Jayne Castle) series about Harmony, the planet where a generation ago, humans from earth colonizing another planet get stuck there when the curtain that opened to allow them to get there in the first place just closes one day without warning. Those left behind adapt, part of which involves the development of various psychic talents in the populace.

I loved this book! When I read a previous book in this series, I fell in love with the adorable sounding dust bunnies. This book had not 1, but 2 of them that were so cute! I loved the story of Davis and Celinda and how they both kept denying the attraction to one another for one reason or another. I also truly enjoyed Davis's sidekick/partner, Trig. I loved the character development and the story in general. I had trouble putting this book down and finished it in 2 days. Wonderful page turner!

Jayne Castle’s futuristic novels set in Harmony have just the right amount of paranormal, mystery and love to keep you going from one book to the next. There are nine books in the series so far and I am pretty certain there will be more. These books are stand alones, but all relate to each other. As you read more books you come across references to the hero and heroine of another one in the series, somehow they all know each other and soon you start to feel like you know them all, too.

I really enjoy this series (you do not have to read them in order or anything). I think this one might be my favorite, but I probably say that after every one I read! It takes place on the planet Harmony and the two main characters, Celinda and Max, who both have the cutest dust bunnies, are just the greatest two people ever! I really enjoyed spending time with them.

Cadence City matchmaker and para-resonator Celinda Ingram meets her match in security specialist Davis Oakes. On the hunt for the powerful relic that Celinda supposedly bought as a toy for her pet dust bunny, Davis must use all of his unique psychic abilities to try and wrest the ruby red object from the suspicious duo, keep his desire for Celinda in check-and keep them all safe from those who will do anything to possess the relic.

Silver Master by Jayne Castle

Another of the early books by Krentz/Castle, it was way better than Amaryllis. Again by page 60 (and according to the Harlequin/Avon Romance formula) the female meets "the man" and throws all her rules, principles, whatever out the window and says 'what the heck? Let's be exciting today and jump into bed with a stranger because he's "THE ONE".'

It got better and was okay. A decent enough rainy afternoon read.

Recommends it for: mystery/romance/science fiction requests
A futuristic matchmaker buys an alien artifact at her dust bunny's request. Private investigator, Davis Oakes, tracks her down and sparks fly. However, other nefarious interests are also determined to acquire the artifact.

Appreciate the double-edged sword message of technological advances for good and evil.

We return to the planet of Harmony in this Jayne Ann Krentz book, a lovely mixture of romance, science fiction, mystery, and the paranormal.

Celinda Ingram had no great love for the powerful Guilds after running afoul of a particularly psychotic member. It didn't make her happy to find security specialist Davis Oakes and the police in her office on Guild business, the retrieval of a relic bought by Celinda for her dust bunny, Araminta. As the two unusual psi-talents work together, they realize th

And I don't know how this happened, but I think I missed Ghost Hunter. I must have, cause some things that were supposed to strike me as familiar, didn't. I don't know how the hell that happened, but you best believe I'm picking it up ASAP!

It turns out that the PI, Davis Oakes, has been retained by the local Guild (a collection of hunters, thought by some to be similar to the mob) to recover an artifact that Celinda unknowingly bought. She is more than willing to turn it over but her dust bunny has other ideas. Davis doesn't want to let her out of
