Holt Sinclair thought everything had its price - until he met a woman who couldn't be bought. Adena West had come to him on a matter of business, but suddenly it was a different affair.

Enjoyed this quite a bit, since the heroine seemed to be led in this book most of the time. When the book starts she has had a tough day, she discovered in her job as an accountant that her company was bribing a rival employee and when she reported it she found out that the man she was dating was fine with it, so she broke up her relationship and resigned and decided to warn the rival which doesn't turn out as she expected, first off he knew about the bribe and second off all he thinks she expec ...more

I really enjoyed this book a lot !! You'd think the plot is predictable but that was not the case at all as the characters managed to make a few surprises that transformed the entire book into one hell of a fun unpredictable read.

I really liked Adena , she has integrity , intelligence , humor , a lot of pride and kindness which Holt made good use of in a very hilarious way. She doesn't run away from confrontations and gives her all in her relationship with Holt.

Holt was a hero I fell in love
Another early Jayne Ann Krentz (1983), this book comes closer to her later style than other books written around this time. It has a bit more plot and better characterization but is still basically about the sturm und drang of a single relationship. As do most of the Stephanie James books, this one lacks the humor of her later books but still makes an interesting re-read.

It was nice. Not laugh out funny but a subtle humor was present in the conversations. The dog proved to be a nice secondary character. The issues that plagued the hero also seemed real and his reactions to the situations was innovative.

Not usually a big fan of "forceful" "i know what's good for you / what you want and need" kind of heroes, but this one actually redeemed himself, in a very short amount of time (since it was a rather short story).
verdict: short and sweet.

I really enjoyed this book. Her characters are always different than expected. I enjoyed all of her 80's books and took them for the era they were in and what was selling. I do wish they were all in Kindle Format!

On of the first books that Jayne Ann Krentz wrote. Nothing special and yet it still has her distinctive style.
