Publisher's Summary

Everyone thought Jessie Benedict's impending marriage to Sam Hatchard was a great arrangement - everyone, that is, but Jessie herself. Was she the only one who could see that Hatchard, her powerful father's protege, had a scheming ulterior motive in marrying her? He was more than just a chip off the old workaholic's block - he was positively lusting after Jessie's inheritance to build his own business empire! 

Free-spirited Jessie has plans for her own career as a detective - starting with the rescue of a teenage girl from a dangerous cult. But when a break-in and an intimidating act of vandalism strike close to home, her investigation pairs her with the compellingly masculine entrepreneur. Hatch does make her heart beat deliciously fast, but she's not taking orders from any man. Imagine her surprise when he turns out to be not only a friend and ally but a strong, tender lover who, in the end, knows how to seal a deal - with her resounding "I do!"

Another Krentz Classic!

I loved this book when I read it in the 90's. While it's a little dated now, I still enjoyed the vivid narration of an old favorite.

Boring

Main character doesn't seem to have any common sense and is very irritating.I usually enjoy her books but this one I could not talk myself into finishing.

Just didn't like this one

I am a huge Jayne Ann Krentz fan but some of her earlier work just doesn't hit the mark like her later works, especially from the last 15-20 years. I would return this title if I were allowed to but it appears that we aren't allowed to do so any longer.
