Jayne Castle


My current reread! I love this Jayne Castle trilogy so much. If you haven't checked them out, doooooo it! Starts with Amaryllis, then it's Zinnia, and Orchid. All about psychic powers working in partnership - a prism and a talent. Have you read Jayne Castle's books? Which ones are your favorites?

I've read a lot of Jayne Castle books. My favorites are from her Harmony series. Dust bunnies rule! I liked Zinnia and Orchid. Amaryllis not so much.

I have read all of her futuristics as Jayne Castle. My favorites are: Amaryllis and Orchid from her Psynergy Inc trilogy as well as After Glow, After Dark, Canyons of Night, The Lost Night, Deception Cove, The Hot Zone, Siren's Call, and Illusion Town from her World of Harmony/Ghost Hunters/Arcane series. Gotta love those dust bunnies!

I've also enjoyed some of her older category books written as Jayne Castle, though haven't tracked them all down yet and still have a few in my TBR of the ones I have found. My favorites of those are the Guinevere Jones series (The Desperate Game, The Chilling Game, The Sinister Touch, and The Fatal Fortune) which has been reissued in print as well as digital.

Oops, I meant my favorites from Psynergy Inc are Amaryllis and Zinnia. Orchid was the odd one out of the three for me.

Jayne Castle is definitely among my favorites. If you like her futuristic books, then you'll probably also enjoy the "Lost Colony" series she's written as Jayne Ann Krentz: Crystal Flame, Shield's Lady, and Sweet Starfire :)

I'm with Miol, I can never decide if I like the list Lost Colony or St. Helen's series better. Time for a reread.

I just finished the Saint Helen's trilogy and loved them all : Amaryllis Zinnia and Orchid.
I am currently reading After Dark, the first book in the Harmony serie and like it so far. Finally I understand why you are all referring to the dust bunnies !!
Thank you for the recommendation. I still have a lot of books written by JAK to read.

I can't decide on a favorite Jayne Castle, favorite Jayne Ann Krentz is pretty White Lies followed by Copper Beach, favorite Amanda Quick is Perfect Poison.

I love Jayne Krentz in a!l of her incarnations. Shield's Lady is one of my favorite books, but the flower ladies(Amaryllis, Zinnia and Orchid) are my favorite series.

I first found Jayne Castle through an anthology called Charm where she contributed Harmony novella "Bridal Jitters" from there I have bought the whole series. I think my favourites are Ghost Hunter, Silver Master and Obsidian Prey. But really I love them all- Arcane and dust bunnies rule!! (I do also own all her Amanda Quick works and almost all Jayne Anne Krentz works)

All of her Harmony books are awesome. I recommend reading the Arcane Society Books that skip between Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick.

I really love it! Jayne Castle, Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick are her other pen names and I read them all.
