Overview

There was no passion to break her heart, no love to risk and lose. Marrying her boss, prominent businessman Cormick Grayson, was a very reasonable proposition for a woman who?d been hurt in love before. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement.

At first. But something wasn?t right. The heat in Gray?s eyes told her there was more to this than a polite, passionless marriage. But Gray?s cool, impersonal distance left Amber wondering about the man ...

Overview

There was no passion to break her heart, no love to risk and lose. Marrying her boss, prominent businessman Cormick Grayson, was a very reasonable proposition for a woman who’d been hurt in love before. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement.

At first. But something wasn’t right. The heat in Gray’s eyes told her there was more to this than a polite, passionless marriage. But Gray’s cool, impersonal distance left Amber wondering about the man she’d married.

Amber never imagined she’d be the one demanding more, yearning to feel things she vowed she would never risk again.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
As a marriage proposal, it was lacking, but as a business proposition, it was definitely worth considering. When Cormick first suggested that he and Amber get married, Amber thought her boss was joking. They had the perfect working relationship, but there was definitely no passion between them. But the more Amber thought about the idea, the more it made sense. After all, she had had enough of passion—her last relationship with a sexy race car driver had crashed and burned in a most spectacular manner—so why not marry someone she trusted and respected? What Amber doesn't realize is that Cormick wants the real deal; he isn't about to settle for a polite marriage of convenience. This is vintage Krentz, both in that it was first published in 1993, and in that it showcases the elements that have made her so popular, her sharp wit and flair for sexy romance and wonderfully entertaining subplots, such as the one in this tale involving the collected works of a long-lost poet.
Library Journal
Done with passion, Amber Langley agrees to a comfortable marriage of convenience to her calm, even-keeled boss and good friend, Cormick Grayson, only to discover that there's a lot more to Gray than meets the eye, and a platonic relationship is definitely not on his agenda. Witty, hilarious, racy, and well plotted, this is classic, rereadable Krentz; fans will rejoice that this 1986 Harlequin Temptation title is back in print and in hardcover.

Meet the Author

Jayne Ann Krentz
Jayne Ann Krentz is the author of fifty New York Times bestsellers. She has written contemporary romantic suspense novels under that name, as well as futuristic and historical romance novels under the pseudonyms Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick, respectively. She lives in Seattle.

Biography

A successful corporate and academic librarian-turned-author, Jayne Ann Krentz wrote serial romances for several publishers (including industry powerhouse Harlequin) before breaking out in the '90s as a writer of romantic novels. To say that she has been successful is an understatement: A New York Times- bestselling author with more than 23 million copies of her books in print, she writes three sub-genres of romantic suspense under three different pen names: contemporary romances as Jayne Ann Krentz, historicals as Amanda Quick, and futuristic/paranormal romances as Jayne Castle. (In her early career, she employed at least three additional pseudonyms!) In 2006, the prolific Krentz launched The Arcane Society series -- crossover thrillers written under all three noms de plume that feature members of a secret organization devoted to the study of the paranormal.

It would be hard to find a more passionate advocate for romantic fiction than Krentz. In 1992, she edited and contributed to Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance Writers on the Appeal of the Romance, an award-winning nonfiction essay collection that serves an eloquent apologia for the genre. She has also received the Jane Austen Commemorative Medal from Romantic Times magazine for her work educating readers about Romance. "The Romance genre is the only genre where readers are guaranteed novels that place the heroine at the heart of the story," she says on her website. "These are books that celebrate women's heroic virtues and values: courage, honor, determination and a belief in the healing power of love." Clearly, her legions of loyal fans agree!

Good To Know

I have finally reached the point in my career where I have some say over cover art. Unfortunately, it turns out that I have absolutely no talent for cover art design. Thank heavens I'm with a publisher (Putnam/Berkley) that maintains a terrific art department.

I love green tea and red wine and was absolutely thrilled when it turned out that both are now considered health foods.

I love all animals except for squirrels which, I strongly suspect, are aliens from outer space who are here to take over the planet. You have been warned.

    This is a reprint of her 1986 Harlequin

    This book was originally written for Harlequin in 1986. I own it. It is not my favorite by any means. A typical book of that era. Definitely not up to her standards of what she writes now. Definitely not worth buying as a new hardcover. Used paperbacks are available for very low prices.

    I wish when something is published a line would be noted when it is a reprint.

    I will not be buying this book since I already have the 1986 version. Whether anything has been added I don't know but feel it won't improve the original.

    I am an avid fan of Krentz in all her aka's. Thoroughly enjoy her Harmony and other scifi as well as her Arcane, and historical. Have most if not all of her books so know of which I speak.

    Good Read

    Although not one of jayne Ann Krentz' best, it is an enjoyable read. The characters are funny & the conflict intriguing. I've actually been drawn back to it a couple of time & have enjoyed the revisit.

    Another Krentz bestseller

    I love all of Jayne's work, whether it be in her real name or her other many names; it's still the same person. I have a whole shelf in my room just for her works. I still have a lot of collecting to do. She's one of the best!
