Book 2 of the Rainshadow Series
Book description for Deception Cove (A Rainshadow Novel)
In the world of Harmony, Rainshadow Island is home to a mysterious preserve, secrets that have been kept for centuries, and a treasure worth killing for…
As a light-talent, Alice North has the rare ability to make things disappear, including herself—a gift that comes in handy during her magic act with her dust bunny Houdini.
Business mogul Drake Sebastian is day-blind, since his sight was nearly destroyed in a lab accident. But he’s the one man who can see Alice when she disappears—and he needs her.
On Rainshadow Island, two dangerous Old World crystals are missing, igniting a paranormal storm. Drake thinks Alice is the key to finding them, and proposes they head there, but only after a Marriage of Convenience.
Alice’s honeymoon on Rainshadow is guaranteed to be memorable, as the island—and the passion between her and Drake—is about to explode…
So, sounds entertaining enough, huh? I’m actually in the middle of this book right now. I started it a while ago, and I’m not really sure why, but I let other stuff take precedence and haven’t finished the book yet! I’ve read plenty of other stuff in the meantime, but thinking back on it, I think it was because I’d just finished Crystal Gardens (by Jayne Castle’s pseudonymous alter-ego Amanda Quick). I enjoyed that book a lot, and although Deception Cove was good, it wasn’t historical and I was in the mood for historical.
Now that it’s come back to my attention, I think I’m going to spend a few hours and finish the book. :)
