And now, JAK News!

The latest edition of the JAK newsletter arrived in my inbox prior to lunch and it included the news an Arcane Society novel featuring more of those Jones men, Sizzle and Burn, is due out in January (Amazon says 1/15/08 ).

More from the Jayne Ann Krentz site:

More about Sizzle and Burn:

"When Raine Tallentyre made the mistake of revealing her paranormal abilities, her most recent romantic relationship came to a hasty end. Her Aunt Vella, a gifted but troubled soul, had told her years ago to keep her talents a secret. And now that poor Aunt Vella—her last blood relative—has died, Raine has resigned herself to a lonely life.

But when she journeys to Shelbyville, Washington, to clear out Aunt Vella's house, Raine's highly developed sensitivity leads her to a horrifying discovery: a young woman bound and terrified in a basement storage locker. The victim has survived, but the culprit is still on the loose. Without warning, a new man enters Raine's life—investigator Zack Jones. Surprisingly, Zack isn't repelled by her powers: in fact, he has them himself. While Raine hears voices, Zack sees visions and within hours of their meeting, Raine experiences an intense, thrilling intimacy—mental, emotional, and physical—she never dared to expect.

There's one complication, however: Zack Jones is working for the Arcane Society. This secret organization, dedicated to the study of paranormal phenomena, shattered Raine's family with an act of betrayal long ago, and she's not about to trust them now. But as a killer makes her his target, and a cabal of psychic criminals known as Nightshade operates in the shadows surrounding them, Raine and Zack must rely not only on their powerful abilities but on each other. . ." ( JAK website, upcoming releases)

Hmmmm, wonder how "Dumb Ass" Fallon Jones is doing these days? Though January will indeed be here soon, it seems so very far away when waiting for a great read.

Good thing I have a collection of JAK titles (Jayne Castle, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Amanda Quick) to tide me over; I am currently re-reading Falling Awake for the fourth of fifth time (who counts?).
