Library Journal Review

Determined to rescue his family's company from impending ruin by becoming CEO, Rafe StonebreakerÄwho's gifted with psychic strategizing abilitiesÄhas everything in place to make it happen, except the one thing he desperately needs to win over the boardÄa wife! But it isn't easy for such an exotic talent as Rafe to find a wife through a recognized matchmaking agency. Then he encounters the icy writer of psychic vampire romance novels, Orchid Adams. With her typical offbeat humor and flair, Castle once again takes a pair of powerful, "unmatchable" protagonists, sets them down in her innovative, synergistic world of St. Helens, and gives them a mystery to solve, villains to outwit, and a passion to explore. Readers will be waiting for this terrifically sexy romance, the third in the series. Castle (Zinnia, LJ 8/97) also writes as Amanda Quick and under her own name, Jayne Ann Krentz; she lives in the Seattle area. (c) Copyright 2010.
