Passion is simple, but there's no logic to love....
When Desdemona Wainwright tries to collect a much-needed payment for catering Sam Stark's canceled wedding reception, she encounters not a heartbroken suitor, but the steel-willed head of a multimillion-dollar consulting firm with th
The mystery was pretty interesting and kept me guessing.
The book had a lot of potential but it felt like it didn't live up to it. Most notable was the weddings and prenuptial agreements, the previous failures of which were played up heavily at the start of the book. With that buildup, I was expecting them to get approp...more

I didn't find Stark to be at all interesting or intriguing. When Desdemona decided she was in love with him, it was so jarring and unbelievable.
The "mystery" was wrapped up neater than a Scooby Doo story.
All in all, just so ineptly done.
I feel cheated out of my time.
trust me was my first book of Jayne ANn Krentz and it was amazing...i loved the way she wrote the story, all the character were alive and warm...
desdemoda was the most warmest and wise heroine ive ever read, shes never judge other, she loved her family sincerely and full of compasion...i guess shes the only one that will become sam stark's angel....eventhough they were the opposite character but desdemoda was so wise and patience for him, shes willing to learn the way stark th...more
Also, it really bothers me when, for the purposes of plot exposition, the female lead is forced to act like a complete idiot so the male lead can explain the most basic elements of the world to her and, by extension, the reader. Find a better way!!

I was actually surprised by how into this book I got, and how much I enjoyed it. I just picked it up because it was something to read and my mom had it on her bookshelf. The mystery aspect to it was nice, but it wasn't overbearing. The romance was nice, and definitely spicy at certain points.
I was sort of annoyed with the lack of empathy people had for Sam, especially the Wainswright's early on. They were rude and crass about him not 'having emotions' and being 'nerdy'. It actually i...more
This one I loved because of the hero also - the android-type/emotionally stunted guys are very interesting. It was a really good book that reminded me of the good old times when I read romance novels during class in high-school :)
Desdemona Wainwright meets Sam Stark because she caters his wedding. The opening scene has her talking to Sam about the bill for his aborted wedding. She knows that he is attracted to him and, as he comes out of his stupor, he realizes that he kind of likes her as well. Desdemona is a little worried that he is still upset over his wedding and invites him to an experimen...more
Very highly recommend. I have read almost all of her books written under Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle and the paranormal series involving all three authors and loved them all. This book was wonderful. I could hardly put it down. The characters are funny and emotional. You feel what they feel. And the mystery is there, also.
There were a lot of good ideas. I enjoyed thinking about several parts of the book for quite awhile afterwards. I enjoyed the ideas about family and family ties through adoption, both formal and informal.
Desdemonia runs a catering business. She was adopted by a family of actors when she was a child. Sam was abandoned as a child and is now a successful computer genius with almost no people skills. How Desdemonia and her emotionally open family...more

“I know,” she whispered. “You don’t have to say the words.”
He smiled slowly. “Trust me, you’re going to hear them every day for the rest of our lives.”
