Overview

A Jayne Ann Krentz Classic. First time in eBook.

Shannon Raine's Mendocino cottage offers a peaceful view of the Pacific ocean and the inspiration she needs to create her silkscreened artistic treasures. The only problem with her quiet, creative existence is the neighbors. Last year, the rental next door was occupied by two visiting mothers and their noisy brood. This year, however, seems much more promising. The new neighbor is a very interesting -- very sexy -- mystery man.

Garth Sheridan rented the cottage in Mendocino as an escape. The last thing he expected was a very curious neighbor who threatens to disrupt his carefully planned life. Still, an invitation to dinner seems harmless enough. And a weekend affair ought to be manageable... But Shannon Raine is about to turn his world upside down...

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 kicked 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 second book, DREAM EYES 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 second book, THE MYSTERY WOMAN 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 latest novel in this series, DECEPTION COVE, will be available in August 2013..

    Originally published in 1986, reissued in the 1990s. Suggest you read sample before purchasing as it quite different from the majority of her work!

    This story is an early work of Jayne Ann Krentz originally published in 1986. JAK is one of my favorite authors. I love her Arcane Society series, Harmony series, as well as her Amanda Quick historicals, so I was looking forward to this Classic JAK to be made available as an ebook as I had not read this when it was published originally.
    Unfortunately, I prepurchased this ebook and did not wait and read the sample first, which has never been a problem in the past with any of her books under any of her Krentz, Castle, or Quick pen names. I was not really able to get into this story, I finally stopped reading around chapter 3. I found the lead male character to be quite unlikable and could not understand the lead female character's continued interest in him.
    I recommend that potential readers read the sample prior to deciding whether or not to purchase this ebook.
    I highly recommend Krentz-Castle-Quick's Arcane Society books, the Amanda Quick historicals, and the Jayne Castle futuristic books!

    Obvious

    This is obviously an early book of JAK, or it was written by a ghost writer. It is not good, the storyline is stupid, and the characters are unlikable. But, do not let this keep you from reading her later books( except the paranormal ones) She has some great ones written later on. Flash and Soft Focus being two of them.
