Overview

A Jayne Ann Krentz Classic. Now available in ebook.

Legends can be dangerous, just ask Sariana Dayne. She sets out to hire one and wakes up married to him. It’s a marriage of infuriating inconvenience as far as Sariana is concerned.

Gryph Chassyn stirs all her senses but he’s one of the mysterious mercenaries known as Shields. Sensible women do not marry such men. But for Gryph, marrying Sariana is a matter of honor, passion and survival. He needs her in ways she cannot even imagine.

Before Sariana can find a way to escape the bond that has been forged between them, she and Gryph are caught up in a desperate quest to save their world. The future looks a little different but some things, like love and passion, and murder never change.

Meet the Author

The author of over 50 New York Times bestsellers, JAYNE ANN KRENTZ writes romantic-suspense, often with a psychic and paranormal twist, in three different worlds: Contemporary (as Jayne Ann Krentz), historical (as Amanda Quick) and futuristic (as Jayne Castle). There are over 35 million copies of her books in print.

Building on the success of her Arcane Society Series, Jayne is kicking off three new paranormal series in 2012. The Dark Legacy books are set in present day Washington state and delve into the paranormal crystal mining world and the Coppersmith Family. The first book, COPPER BEACH is available now.

The Ladies of Lantern Street novels are set in Victorian England and follow the adventures of the Flint and Marsh Agency employees. These ladies are not your average paid companions. The first book, CRYSTAL GARDENS is available now.

The Rainshadow novels started, unofficially, with the release of CANYONS OF NIGHT. These stories are set on a small island on the planet Harmony in the not so distant future. The second novel in this series, THE LOST NIGHT, will be available in September 2012.

I have the paperback edition in my library and have read it several times. It's like an old friend I return to now and then. It is set on an alternative world and chronicals 2 different cultures. Jayne Ann Krentz is a personal favorite of mine.

This is a good combination of Ms Krentz's three writing styles: Romance, SciFi, and Historical.

This is a re-issue, very good book, I wanted it for my nook library. It's a keeper!

I was so glad when this came out in e-read. This was one of the first paranormal books I had ever read and definitely one of my "desert islands" picks. My only complaint was the editing/proofing was TERRIBLE. At times I had trouble understanding the paragraphs because of all the incorrect line breaks, wrong words that were not picked up during the editing -- and I've read this book dozens of times, literally. I hope they do better on the rest of her older novels.

A 5 star read! Shield's Lady was as much fun re-reading it as it was the first time in paper. I'm so glad JAK's backlist is being reissued in e-book! It has science fiction, adventure, mystery, romance, drama and suspense! What more can you ask for?

I have the original paperback book as well and I purchased the ebook version because print is so fragile.... This is a great book; I can hardly wait to read it again!

read this book under the published name of Amanda Glass, truly enjoyed it, then realized it was Stephanie James/Jayne Anne Krentz, would like to see a sequel. Also would like to see this in audiobooks

This is an older JAK paranormal romance, and I just love this one! The story is really good and it has turned into one of my favorite books. Sometimes older books don't hold up very well, but that doesn't happen here. Please keep releasing classic JAK and out of print books. Thanks.  :)

Anything written by this author is always a good read. I have read EVERYTHING she has written. No matter what name she writes under, it is worth reading. I wait for her books to come out. Now that I have my nook, I reserve the books because I can't wait for the next ones. I usually read them over and over again.

I'm a big fan of Jayne's and have almost all of her books. I bought this originally as a paperback many years ago. I love reading books on my ereader. Just wish that there weren't so many errors in it. Some were easy to figure out like Ken instead of Keri (the little boy at the fair) and rivet instead of river. But some of the errors I could not figure out even though I have read the book before. Are the other reissues like this?
