Brenna is not interested in a relationship, and very much concerned over her future after one of the professors she works with stole her ethics research and she has been advised to ignore it so not to jeopardise her career.

A 1983 Jayne Ann Krentz, this book flowed smoothly, although the dialogue was strained in a few places. Not enough to cause a pause in the reading. One of the things I like best about Ms. Krentz's writing is that it reads so well; never a jarring moment. I did have trouble identifying with Brenna Llewellyn (Who ever heard of a woman getting slapped by a man and not minding?), but Ryder Sterne was her usual no-nonsense, wonderfully direct male. The plot was a little thin, but, hey, it's her early ...more

The book grabbed me from the first line , Ryder and Brenna's meeting was humorous and their exchange was witty , the relationship between them developed nicely and was convincing though the timeline was pretty short the development of Ryder and Brenna's relationship made it seem longer.

The book had the usual 80's touch with the heroine and hero's character but they were still very fun to read until the scene with Brenna and Damon came and I found myself very pissed off from Brenna's reaction t

The one thing that drove me crazy reading this novel is that the hero constantly called the heroine 'lady'. To me that is something you get called by a big city cab driver - it is not a term of endearment! I suppose it's better than 'little idiot' though!!! Also, to go from complete strangers to happily ever after in only 3 days is not really my idea of romance. I need a little more build up and character development to feel the love. I suppose I shouldn't expect more from an 80's Silhouette but ...more

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.
