Welcome back to my other world - the rules are a little different here.
Life is complicated for Lydia Smith. She's working at that tacky, third-rate museum, Shrimpton's House of Ancient Horrors, trying to salvage her career in para-archaeology - and dating the most dangerous man in town. Just when she thinks she might be getting things under control, she stumbles over a dead body and discovers that her lover has a secret past that could get him killed. Just to top it off, there's trouble brewing underground in the eerie, glowing green passageways of the Dead City.
Of course, all of these problems pale in comparison to the most pressing issue: Lydia has been invited to the Restoration Ball and she hasn't got a thing to wear.
If, like me, you sometimes relish your romantic suspense with a paranormal twist, join me for After Glow.

This builds on the previous book in the series. It has a decent mix of romance and adventure . It throws a few new insights into the characters and of course has a great dust bunny character. It's fun to listen to if you like these books but kudos to the narrator for her handling of the different characters
"great followup to After Dark"
After Glow was like part 2 of After Dark. It finished up some story lines and started some new ones. I love the Harmony series.
"Why destroy a good book?"
This would have been a great book it the sex had been left up to the imagination. I would have to fast forward thru those parts. So I did not like it.
I have read the all of the Harmony series and I was a moron when I started listening to this one. I accidently started with part 2 on this one and I kept think boy they are moving fast and missing lots of stuff. By the time I realised my mistake I was almost done with it. I know that I would have enjoyed it better if I had started with the right part first. So a warning double check which part you start with on all audios.
"Another dead body for Lydia and Emmett"
They are equally enjoyable.
When Lydia informs Emmett they're getting married that afternoon.
Joyce Bean has clearly defined characterizations and an enjoyable interpretation of the material. Her men sound like men and her women sound like women.
I laughed a lot in this book and fell in love with Fuzz all over again.
I want a dustbunny.
"Strong characters, Original story"
I have read this book several times already. I love Jayne Castle's world of Harmony. Her books typically have a happy ending, but I love that. The story is unique, the characters likable and entertaining.
I really enjoyed the dust bunny secret, psychic connection.
My favorites scenes are usually when the girl and boy finally get together. After all, it is a romance book.
I love the connection between the hero/heroine and the dust bunny.
"One of her best"
This is one of Jayne's best. Because this is the second book centered around Lydia and Emmett, there's much more character development. And, they face problems that use both normal and paranormal skills to solve. Great romance, some lovely dialogue, andorra of fun.
even with all of the tacky sex scenes I adore her harmony books and wish she would write more
"I can count one this author for a good light read"
I enjoy this author because the relationships in her books are clean and simple, the dialog is fun and there is some mystery and suspense. As Amanda Quick/ Jayne Anne Krentz/ Jayne Castle she does have a pattern to all of her books but I find this a welcome change after I read, say, Sandra Brown who keeps you on your toes.
"Couldn't finish it"
I couldn't even get past the second chapter. Don't waste your time. The story line is nonexistant. And the narrator is flat.
