“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...more
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...more

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...more

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 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...more
Lovely! I just love romantic books with elements of the paranormal.
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,...more
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.

The story involves Celinda, a disgraced matchmaker trying to start over in a new city, and Davis, a...more

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.

Silver Master - Harmony, Bk 4 by Jayne Castle

Davis Oakes a security specialist is searching for a stolen "Alien" relic, the trail leads to Celinda and Arminta who got it for $5.00 at a pawn shop.

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...more

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!

I adored the action - I thought it was greatly played out. To me, both Celinda and Davis felt like they were outcasts ... freaks, even. And I'm glad they found each other - and proved those words wrong. Each character strong in their own minds, belie...more
Celinda Ingram has moved to a new city in order to avoid a scandal. But now there's a police detective and a private investigator sitting at her desk. Is she going to have to move again?
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...more
Curse of the Bibliophile
A matchmaker and a scarred Ghost Hunter find that love comes at the most unlikely of times.
Celinda is used to others uneasiness about her gift so she mostly keeps it a secret, but when she meets David who has an unusual power of his own they find an attraction to each other hard to resist.
Celinda is beautiful woman both inside and out and I was so happy that she found someone like David who understands and cares for her just as she does for him. Both of these characters keep their gifts a secret...more
An Odd1
** "Silver Master" is a hero with the unique power to manipulate silver light crystal energy into an invisibility shield. Jayne Castle aka Krentz follows Ghost Hunter with similar explicit passionate interplay on planet Harmony of ubiquitous amber, between Guild supporter, troubled investigator Davis, and persuasive matchmaker antagonist Celinda, both with pet funnny dust-bunnies. Again, a mad doctor-scientist and crazed ex (sort-of) double villain power. Despite the end being marriage of the co...more
I liked it more than Ghost Hunter, less scifi babble, or maybe I got used to it. Whatever the case may be, I didn't feel exasperated while reading it. And the dust bunnies are still cute.
Re-read this one; it held up so-so. The suspense story is fine and the romance is enjoyable. The "dust bunnies" pets got a little too cloying after a while.
The fourth in the Harmony series, this one again has a semi-ghost hunter (Davis Oakes is a security specialist) that can do something others can't, in this case pull silver to go invisible or get rid of other ghosts. Celinda Ingram also does something rare in the world of Harmony. She can recognize psi waves and to some extent manipulate them. Both keep their secrets as long as they can while hunting down murderers and solving mysteries. Davis has his dust bunny Max and Celinda hers, Araminta. S...more
This Title was an excellent Sci-Fi/Future/Romance. This title will be on either my bookshelf or in my hands being reread
This story was okay. It is a very easy quick read. The characters are likable and the storyline is so so. I have the next in the series so will read that one next.
Once you get past all of the terminology that sounds a bit hokey the books are actually very good.

Silver Master is set on Harmony, a world colonized by "old Earth" and then mysteriously isolated. Psi talents, linked with old alien artifacts abound
on Harmony and PI Davis Oates and matchmaker Celinda Ingram find romance, danger and matching dust bunnies as they link up in pursuit of a powerful lost artifact. Castle has written several books set on Harmony, all
variations of this basic storyline - nice fluffly brain candy.

Genre : Paranormal Romance
Publication : 2007
Rating : 7.5
So been working my way through this series and I got to say that I liked this book second best. It wasn't anything overly dramatic or original but Celinda was a strong character, Davis was a great hero and I absolutely love the dust bunnies. This was a great fun story, with hot moments, and a little action on the side. Well written and really one of the best so far.
The best of Castle's Harmony series, in my opinion. Celinda and Davis are in possession of a new kind of artifact which enhances the unique psi power Celinda has. Davis has a rare and interesting talent as well. Both also have a dust bunny who helps them keep the artifact out of the hands of a crazy para-psychiatrist.
Castle has cut down on the annoying device of tacking -rez to every other word in her paranormal series, and the narrative is much better for it.
I still love the world of Harmony but thats all that did it for me. There was nothing particularly wrong with the story it was a decent story. it just didn't really do it for me. I really liked Davis but wasn't a fan of Celinda which is surprising, i don't dislike heroines often. I was really excited that Lydia and Emmett London made an appearance in this story. Other than that and dust bunny love this book was kinda a waste.
Lady Lioness
The only reason that this got three stars instead of four from me is because I felt the relationship did not receive much screen-time. Silver Master focuses mainly on the case that brings Celinda and Davis in contact and an incident that happened to Celinda in her past. As a result, everything else fell by the wayside. That makes this a decent introduction to the Harmony series, but it's not a well-rounded read.
