Reader Review: I really enjoyed Haunted. The hero was unusual and vulnerable in a way that I really appreciated, and the heroine was spunky enough to be fun without being too stupid to live. The writing flowed well, and I was interested in the story. Side note: I read this book (the first in the trilogy) after I read Raintree: Sanctuary (the last); Haunted blows the final book away.
Their name is Raintree.
It's more than a last name; more than a notation on a family tree. It's a mark of destiny. Each family member has a special gift, an otherworldly talent.
Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, can harness electricity and talk to ghosts. He will need to wield gifts he's kept hidden to solve his newest case--a relentless serial killer unleashed by the dark Ansara wizards. But first he must deal with his reaction to Hope Malory, his alluring new partner. He'd never planned on love in the midst of battle. With evil lurking at every turn, Gideon and Hope are in a race against time to save their love, their family...and their newly conceived child.
"A love story, a mystery, an adventure-- Haunted has it all, and the plot moves at a lightning pace. Linda Winstead Jones has a magic touch with paranormal, and, yes, the pun is intended!"-- New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard

When Gideon's phone rang in the middle of the night, it meant someone was dead. "Raintree," he answered, his voice rumbling with the edges of sleep.
"Sorry to wake you."
Surprised to hear his brother Dante's voice, Gideon came instantly awake. "What's wrong?"
"There's a fire at the casino. Could be worse," Dante added before Gideon could ask, "but it's bad enough. I didn't want you to see it on the morning news without some warning. Call Mercy in a couple of hours and tell her I'm all right. I'd call her myself, but I'm going to have my hands full for the next few days."
Gideon sat up, wide awake. "If you need me, I'm there." "No, thanks. You've got no business getting on an airplane this week, and everything here is fine. I just wanted to call you before I got so tied up in red tape I couldn't get to a phone."
Gideon ran his fingers through his hair. Outside his window, the waves of the Atlantic crashed and rolled. He offered again to go to Reno and help. He could drive, if necessary. But once again Dante told him everything was fine, and they ended the call. Gideon reset his alarm for five–thirty. He would call Mercy before she started her day. The fire must have been a bad one for Dante to be so certain it would make the national news.
Alarm reset, Gideon fell back onto the bed. Maybe he'd sleep, maybe not. He listened to the ocean waves and let his mind wander. With the solstice coming in less than a week, his normal electric abnormalities were really out of whack. The surges usually spiraled out of control only when a ghost was nearby, but for the past few days, and for the week to come, it didn't take the addition of an electric...

Reviewer: A reader from Santa Fe, NM US
Gideon Raintree is not only the head of his magical family but also a homicide detective who can communicate with the dead victims to whose cases he's been assigned. Although a highly decorated officer, Gideon is roundly considered somewhat eccentric; he prefers to do his job alone because of the complications that inevitably arise when his special gifts are finally noticed by colleagues. He is similarly gunshy when it comes to his personal life. His new partner, Det. Hope Mallory, refuses to back off, however, and her determination and spirit appeal to Gideon on a professional as well as a personal level. Could she be the one woman to accept him for who and what he truly is? When the Ansaras, a rival magical family with whom the Raintrees have for centuries feuded, strike out at Gideon, he is forced to rely on Hope and she, in turn, is compelled to open up her mind and heart to Gideon. Although this second installment in the trilogy has a different author from the first installment, the two match each other very nicely in style and tone. A fun read!
