"Who would have thought there was so much soft excitement under that sophisticated veneer?" he whispered. "What other secrets are you hiding, sweet witch?"

Secrets? The word clicked in Lacey Holbrook's mind and reason flooded back. Yes, she had secrets. Why else had she conjured Jed Merlin back from the all-but-forgotten past? Why else had she insisted on turning the bohem

I always think it's going to be fun to read romance novels from the early 80s. Then I read one and it's painful and I come away happy that romance novels have evolved and are no longer word versions of soap operas. Fair warning, there are spoilers, but was published in the 1980s.

Lacey wants her boyfriend to break up with her so she calls in Jed to both act as a love interest and to take her to his father's estate to keep her safe. She hopes to accomplish this by making Jed shave

The plot is a little unbelievable but the characters are basically good. Ms. Krentz's hero, Jed Merlin, is not autocratic (until the end) like previous heroes while the heroine, Lacey Holbrook, is getting to that stage. Published in 1982 and a Candlelight Ecstasy Romance, it is pretty typical of this genre.
