Product Description

Review

"In this ambitious and action-packed novel, Tananarive Due blurs genre boundaries as adroitly as her ghost walks through walls. Part love story, part ghost story, part historical fiction, part contemporary adult drama, this book is difficult to categorize -- and impossible to put down."-- Valerie Boyd, author of "Wrapped in Rainbows: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I LOVE these characters! This is JAK at her best. She just does not get any better. Molly Abberwick owns a tea and spice shop, enjoying her life in Seattle until her father dies and leaves her in charge of his Foundation to help budding inventors. She is now facing a problem. The problem is Dr. Harry Stratton Trevelyn, who is the 'debunker' of fake inventions. He vets the applicants before Molly passes out the money grants. Molly gets very enthusiastic about all sorts of inventions, only to have Harry shoot them down time after time. So far, he has not approved one single invention.
Harry has his own problems. He is caught between the two sides of his family - the very rich socialite Stratton side and his carnival side Trevelyns. Harry is very rich, so the carnival family is always asking him for this and that, with both sides keeping a constant tug of war on Harry. This emotional battlefield has caused Harry to be very self contained, maybe too controlled. The one place his control is let loose is in the bedroom. Also around to cause him headaches is his ex-fiancé, a psychiatrist who thinks Harry might be slightly insane and is trying to warn Molly from to not get involved with him. The final mix to Harry's problem is his is psychic and does not want to admit it. Having been raised in a carnival part-time, he has seen this used as a game, so he does not like to let people know about it.
As Molly slowly gets involved with Harry and the whole cast of his family, someone starts to play dangerous pranks on her, and it is quickly evident someone wants her dead.
The characters are so warm, so loving and with that JAK razzle-dazzle that she has polished to a beautiful diamond finished.
Lets hope she soon gets back to this level of writing.

If you've read any Krentz before, then all you need to know is that this is the author at her usual standard - brilliant.
For those less familiar with her, then passionate romance spiced with intrigue and a little danger, at a breathless pace, will keep you turning pages when you really should be doing something else..
Do not read this book if you want sterotyped characters, or a spineless heroine, because this is not an old-fashioned damsel-in-distress novel.
Harry and Molly are individuals, sometimes a little eccentric, but they both realise one thing - when you are absolutely positive you have found your perfect partner, love is about saving each other for yourselves.

I'm a J.A>Krentz fan of long standing, and I also love all her pen-names, so I know what I'm talking about when I say this is her best ever! This is the most tender, sexy, exiting and funny book I've ever bought, by any author, and I've read it three times in the month since I bought it. If you like J.A.Krentz, then you'll think this is as great as I do, but even if you're a first time reader, you'll be sucked right in by the gutsy heroine and loving hero. The storyline is brilliantly thought out, incorporating all the best element s of previous J.A.K books and improving on them, including the tough yet vulnerable hero with a tortured past and unusual abilities, and the female lead who is not only clever and beautiful, but always has the right come-back to any nasty comment. Trust me when I say it people- this book is the best of the best, so go and buy it, NOW!!!

Not the best Jayne Ann Krentz I've ever read!
Damn I'm disappointed with this novel. It was too wordy, with not enough heat or chemistry between the leads. It lost my attention.
I'm annoyed about wasting money on this😕
