These stories have everything: suspense, danger, romance, dust bunnies, and fun. ( )
Celinda Ingram is a matchmaker who was forced out of Frequency after a scandal ruined her business. Now in Cadence, she finds that she might be in the middle of another problem. Her dust bunny Araminta encouraged her to buy a strange item from a local antique store. Celinda can feel its psy vibes but it looks like a red plastic handle from something the original settlers brought to Harmony.
The next thing she knows, she has drawn the attention of the police and also of Investigator Davis Oakes who want to know how the object - now identified as a relic stolen from the Guild museum - came to be in her possession.
Celinda takes one look at Davis and realizes that he is the Mr. Perfect she's been looking for all her life. Only, Davis has just gotten out of a bad relationship and is determined to never again trust a matchmaker with his future. Besides, he is in the middle of rebuilding his career too. He spent two months in hospital after an incident with his own psychic talent.
Both Celinda and Davis have psychic powers that are really strong and really unusual. She is able to read the paranormal energy of others which are as distinct to her as faces or fingerprints. He is able to use silver light and also to use silver light to make himself invisible which has come in useful a time or two in his career as a private investigator. However, if he uses it for too long he risks falling into a permanent coma.
Meanwhile, someone else is after the relic that Celinda bought for Araminta and is willing to leave a strong of bodies behind.
This was a fun story with a really nice romance... and two dust bunnies. Besides Celinda's buddy Araminta, Davis has been adopted by Max.
I really enjoy this series (you do not have to read them in order or anything). I think this one might be my favorite, but I probably say that after every one I read! It takes place on the planet Harmony and the two main characters, Celinda and Max, who both have the cutest dust bunnies, are just the greatest two people ever! I really enjoyed spending time with them.
I don't know why, but I got irritated by constant rezzing and de-rezzing.
The heroine is desperate to start over after a scandal in her past resulted in the loss of her business and reputation. Now, a Guild detective is asking questions about an artifact in her possession and her dust bunny has hidden the damn thing so he refuses to leave. But she admits to herself that though he's not someone to be taken lightly, she's drawn to him. At first she imagines him to be the perfect man but the fact that he's associated with the Guide, an organization she believes to be thieves and mobsters puts a damper on things. In turn the hero is torn between the fact that he's just as drawn to her but is distrustful of marriage matchmakers after the debauchal of his fiancé. I loved the fact that though they always spoke respectful to each other-they argued over everything to do with the Guide and marriage. But at the same time, the were able to argue and still have a comfortable meal afterwards. They were very much in tune with each other and it was almost like they were already an old married couple. I enjoyed this book more than other in the series because I really liked the characters. The heroine wasn't afraid to take a chance on the hero-though he's completely opposite in personality to herself. The hero was almost completely in control of his emotions and powers and kept a tight hold of that control-scared of the possibility that the loss of self control will send him back to the institution. That beings said-he would instantly fight and use those abilities to help the heroine whenever possible. Like I aid- it was an enjoyable read-loved the damn dust bunnies. I wish the author would include a picture of those little guys as I'd be curious to see just how she envisions them to look.

Fleeing a lurid scandal, matchmaker Celinda Ingram arrived in Cadence City desperate for a new start. Known for her strong para-resonator abilities, she is able to match up clients by reading their psi waves.

A formidable psychic himself, Davis is trying to track down a powerful relic that Celinda supposedly bought as a toy for her pet dust bunny. Trying to wrest the ruby red object from the suspicious duo nearly drains Davis of the energy he'll need to keep his growing desire for Celinda in check - and to keep her safe from those who will do anything to possess the relic...
