Synopsis (Goodreads):
Even the mysterious world of Harmony has people who don't quite fit in. They're drawn to places like Rainshadow Island, a beautiful sanctuary where anyone can feel safe—and where secrets are closely guarded.

Schooled in an exotic form of martial arts, and with the ability to detect auras of dangerous psychic criminals, Rachel Blake and her dust bunny companion have found peace and quiet on Rainshadow Island, operating a bookstore and café.

But her tranquil new life is thrown into chaos when Harry Sebastian, the descendant of a notorious pirate, arrives to investigate strange developments in the privately owned woods know as the Preserve.

Immediately drawn to the amber-eyes woman, Harry must tread carefully. While Rachel's special talents can help him track down dangerous rogues who have violated the Preserve, they can also sense the heart of darkness within him. But desire can weaken the toughest of defenses—and leave even the strongest man wanting more.
Thoughts on The Lost Night: Soooo. We're heading away from the cities and into the wilds of Harmony. Since I'm digging this return to Harmony HARDCORE, this is super fantastic. For me, at least. It's not so fantastic for Rachel after losing 12 hours of her life and being stuck with a nagging uncertainty that things are far more complicated than they appear to be on the surface.

And by "things", I mean Mr. Harry Sebastian. Okay, fine. And the 12 hour amnesia thing. That's a tiny bit complicated.

But Harry! He's all sorts of complicated for Rachel. He's there to help police the Preserve and her missing time leads right into that. He's also broody and hunky and kind of has a noble streak. Oh, and a unexpected ability. Seeing as how Rachel's ability isn't completely in the mainstream, they fit together nicely.

A dangerous swath of wilderness, some hidden treasure, a group of morally derelict dudes, and two people who keep getting stuck together during storms. No lie, it wasn't just the lightning generating heat when things got going, if you know what I mean. *thumbs up*
