Booklist Review

As a marriage proposal, it was lacking, but as a business proposition, it was definitely worth considering. When Cormick first suggested that he and Amber get married, Amber thought her boss was joking. They had the perfect working relationship, but there was definitely no passion between them. But the more Amber thought about the idea, the more it made sense. After all, she had had enough of passion her last relationship with a sexy race car driver had crashed and burned in a most spectacular manner so why not marry someone she trusted and respected? What Amber doesn't realize is that Cormick wants the real deal; he isn't about to settle for a polite marriage of convenience. This is vintage Krentz, both in that it was first published in 1993, and in that it showcases the elements that have made her so popular, her sharp wit and flair for sexy romance and wonderfully entertaining subplots, such the one in this tale involving the collected works of a long-lost poet.--Charles, John Copyright 2009 Booklist

Library Journal Review

Done with passion, Amber Langley agrees to a comfortable marriage of convenience to her calm, even-keeled boss and good friend, Cormick Grayson, only to discover that there's a lot more to Gray than meets the eye, and a platonic relationship is definitely not on his agenda. Witty, hilarious, racy, and well plotted, this is classic, rereadable Krentz; fans will rejoice that this 1986 Harlequin Temptation title is back in print and in hardcover. (c) Copyright 2010.
