Jase Lassiter has lived on remote Saint Clair, a Southern Pacific island for the past decade. There he owns the Serpent bar and offers himself as a ¿souvenir¿ to females........................ . When Amy Shannon shows up at his bar, Jase concludes that she does not belong in a dive like his. Still he figures he can score with her before he sends her on her way. However, he soon realizes how far outside her lane she is when thugs threaten her if she fails to stop her inquiries over what happened to her former brother-in-law. Unable to mind his business, Jase decides to protect Amy, not expecting to fall in love with visiting Miss Innocent......................... This is a reprint of a 1980s tale (written under the name Stephanie James) that will please fans of Jayne Ann Krentz. The story line is vintage Ms. Krentz as the lead male is more an antiheroic rogue until he meets the love of his life; his heart subsequently supersedes his brain forcing him to keep his cherished Amy safe. Though the male lead seems to be overly protective to the point of ordering his beloved around (hey this was the Reagan macho conservative age not the compassionate conservative Bush era ¿ we still had a long way to go baby), fans will enjoy this fine island romantic suspense........................

The town of Stepford reborn. This time with lots and lots of exclamation points. Don't bother wasting your time or money.
