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.

    highly recommended

    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.

    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?

    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?

    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.  :)

    Great!!!

    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 have this book and have read it several times. I knew when I purchased it it was a Jayne Ann Krenz book and it did not disappoint. It had one of the first atlernate universe stories and was descriptive enough and not to much to detract from the actual story, which has become Jayne, Amanda, and Stephanie's trademark. Have been waiting YEARS for another in that particular universe.
