Author: Jayne Castle
Published: Jove Books / Penguin Random Houe, 2015
In the mysterious world of Harmony, there are places filled with unexplored marvels. But Rainshadow Island isn’t about to give up its secrets…
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’s knows the perfect one, but she probably doesn’t want anything 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…
“Castle...expertly lures readers in with inventive plotting, wit-infused writing, and flawless characterization.”—Booklist (starred review)

How the protagonists come to accept each other and their unusual abilities is what makes these futuristic tales such genuinely fun and compelling reads. No one does it better than Castle!”—RT Book
