Summary

The wildly popular alter ego of best-selling author Jayne Ann Krentz creates "delectably entertaining paranormal romantic suspense" (Booklist) in the "unique, synergistic world of St. Helen's" (Library Journal), the not-so-distant space colony where hearts and minds are gloriously in sync.

A top psychic for exclusive Psynergy Inc., Orchid Adams has her hands full with a baffling murder - which doesn't exactly allow time for husband hunting. Is it even possible there's a man on St. Helen's who measures up to her dreams of wedded bliss? Take her new client, Rafe Stonebraker: Primitive and elemental, an unlicensed PI with some serious secrets, Rafe is hardly marriage material. So why does his powerful presence have Orchid imagining the most outrageous affair? 

Rafe is embroiled in solving a strange theft while thwarting a hostile takeover of Stonebraker Shipping; he needs a wife - and fast - to salvage his credibility. Orchid Adams doesn't fit the profile he had in mind, but she fits in his arms. Will their electrifying connection end up getting them burned?

light romantic suspense on St Helens Colony

Book 3/3 in the St Helens Colony books has Rafe Stonebraker needing a wife to take over as CEO for his family’s business. Of course, he uses marriage counselor Mr Hobart Batt to launch his search, since his friends Lucas Trent and Nick Chastain had such good luck using him. See books 1&2 for their stories. This is pretty much a stand alone story, so reading them is not required.
There’s the usual romantic suspense with a murder and theft thrown in, in a well written fluffy time out. And the fun made up foods and animals thrown in the mix - the colonists used amusingly similar Earth names like: cofftea, pearberry, caketart; jagpards, catdogs with 6 legs, spiderfrog silk quilts, stubborn as an oxmule.
Eby does a decent job of narration.

final in series

I have had the paperback version of zinnia, amaryllis, and orchid for years, so glad they finally did the audio version. even though they are 20 yrs old, since they are futuristic they are still fun, like the arcane society and rainshadow series. I love all Jaynes book though so I'm easily pleased.

PERFECT END TO ST. HELEN'S TRILOGY

Loved this story when it first came out.

Although they are both off the charts talents, they keep that information hidden because it makes them unmarriageable. This story closes the St. Helen's trilogy with Rafe Stonebreaker and Orchid Adams's story.

With a theft to be solved and other mysteries in the mix, this makes for an entertaining story, where sparks fly between Rafe and Orchid who are not convinced if they are a good match.

It is entertaining to see how these two come together and find out that they are indeed perfect for each other.

I recommend this story, as well as the rest of the trilogy.

Another trilogy well done!

No matter which name Jayne's using in this book, she's completed another of her trilogies in best form. The characters snap with energy and purpose. The plot sends out the beginning feelers to a good era-specific mystery early on in the book. There's just enough hot romance to keep the listener happy and it's not expressed in language usually found misspelled on a service station wall. Best of all, its three books that are entwined with each other but each volume is still capable of being a good stand alone book. I wished I had another twenty authors with Jayne's talents and I'd never have to go spending credits uselessly trying to find a listen up series.
