Flint Cottrell had been driven all his life by a restlessness that didn't allow any peace. He chased legends and treasures, wrote about them, sold his stories to magazines when he could, did odd jobs when he couldn't. But the night Rani Garroway opened her door, he knew he'd found that elusive "something" he'd been searching for.

Rani stared at the handsome, thoroughly rai

Solid trashy romance, but a bit of a silly story line. Ok, more so than the usual trashy romance. But an engaging read all the same!

First published: 1986
Length: 171 pages
Setting: Contemporary.
Sex: Explicit. Reasonably frequent.
Hero: Jack-of-all-trades come myth debunker

I kept thinking this is a cross between a Criminal Minds episode and an Old West Romance.

Old West: Disreputable hero appears on heroine's doorstep to do odd jobs for his keep. He has a a secret agenda and a deep desire to get in her bed.

Criminal Minds: Mysterious man appears on her doorstep a
Rani is a librarian on vacation in a cabin by a lake. Flint is a journalist and vagabond who shows up at Rani's door at night. In exchange for free lodging, he is the new handyman for Rani's cabin, hired by the owners. Flint was creepy and strange. He skulked outside Rani's window at night, climbed in through her window uninvited, moved in to her bedroom after one night of sex. Rani was waspish and argumentative, judgmental about his lifestyle. One look at Rani and Flint was ready to give up his ...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. I do wish they were all in Kindle Format!
2.5 stars

The heroine is a very controlled reference librarian at a public library who's on vacation with her cat. (Say what you will, but she's self aware and a grown up, which is more than I can say for the heroine in the last UF novel I read.)

The hero is an ex-drifter who alternates between stalwart protector and crazy stalker dude. He mostly made me laugh, but sometime his alpha-douchecanoe tendencies got a bit tiresome.

In other words, fairly standard early JAK. Kind of reads like a test run

It was a nice book but I've read much better by the author , the plot was interesting enough and the characters were pleasant but they seemed to lack in the chemistry department , the usual sparks I see in Jayne's books wasn't present in this one , Flint was a very fun character I actually liked him a lot but he didn't quite fit in with Rani , they just didn't click.

Published in 1986, I expected this book to be a little closer to Jayne Ann Krentz's later work, but it was a bit disappointing in that respect. The plot, dialogue, and characters were more developed than in some of her previous books, but somehow they did not work as well for me.

Flint Cottrell is an amazing antihero. He shows up uninvited, and like a strat cat, makes himself at home. After managing to help the heroine defeat the villian, he shows that it was love at first sight for him.

One of the best books by Ms. Krentz published by harlequin. The hero was pushy, but not too pushy and the heroine didn't behave as if she were a naive virgin. Very nice read.
