A Month of Romance Reads - Final Week!

I began this month long foray into romance with Nora Roberts, one of my all time favorites and a queen of the industry.  So I'll book-end it with my other absolute favorite, equal queen of romance, Jayne Ann Krentz.
Grand Passion  is classic Krentz - witty, sexy, fast-paced and dolloped with a generous hint of mystery.  She's always got a quirky heroine and a dark, brooding and intensely sexy hero that has to be brought out of his shell.  This time the heroine is an innkeeper and the hero is searching for five valuable paintings.  The secondary characters bring the inn to life, and the sex brings this book to red hot levels.

The beauty of discovering Ms. Krentz is that she not only delivers solid contemporaries, but also wonderful historicals and paranormals.  Start plowing through the backlist in whichever genre you prefer.  However, do keep an eye out for the throughline series.  In historicals, she has two trilogies under the Arcane Society written as Amanda Quick.  As Jayne Castle she has the Harmony series, and her new contemporary paranormal series as Jayne Ann Krentz.  Take the time to read them all.  You will love her!
