I enjoyed a quick read this week that was set before Harmony series, Bridal Jitters by Jayne Castle.
A short story that acts as an introduction to the series without actually giving much intro information.
Virginia and Sam are entering into a marriage of convenience to boost their business and help to build their careers. When Virginia begins to have second thoughts about the wedding and is determined to back out, before she is able to bring it up with Sam a job come up that could put their company on the map. Determined to be successful the two of them instead get caught in a web of deceit and thievery. Between fighting for their lives and figuring out their relationship the reader learns very little about the world beyond the curtain and of its former inhabitants.
As a short story and one that precedes the main bulk of the series, I had expected a bit more history on the universe and its peoples than I got. The two forms of marriage were outlined more clearly and the two main types of para manipulators as well. I still would have been happier with more though.
