Alexa Chambers has a flair for style, an eye for art -- and a reputation in tatters. An expert in Art Deco, she blew the whistle on an employer who was selling fakes to wealthy clients. Her payoff? No job and no prospects. Now she runs a shop in her hometown of Avalon, Arizona -- a hot spot for crystal devotees and sunset gazers. But gutsy, energetic Alexa has no intention of sitting still. She's ready to take risks to rebuild her career...and she secretly consults on an exquisite deco collection being installed at the new Avalon Resorts. Her scheme might just work -- if she can steer clear of the resort's owner, the enigmatic and possibly dangerous J. L. Trask.Alexa was a scared teenager the last time she saw Trask, the man who accused her stepfather of murder. Insisting his dad's fatal car crash had been no accident, Trask vowed one day he'd come back to Avalon for revenge. Now, twelve years later, their meeting is inevitable. Their attraction is immediate. And their chances of bliss are infinitesimal.Trask wants to piece together the past with Alexa's help -- and get closer to this dazzling deco diva. Alexa wants to protect her family -- and figure out Trask's real motivations. But when a killer emerges from the shadows, they have no choice but to team up to solve a deadly crime from long ago.

About the Author

Doesn't it sound like fun using several different names while doing something you love as a job? That is exactly what ensued for Jayne Castle, as she grew through her writing career. She used Jayne Ann Krentz (her married name) for her writings about contemporary romantic suspense, as Amanda Quick, for her historical romantic-suspense, and today, she uses her birth name, Jayne Castle, for her stories of futuristic/paranormal romantic-suspense. It seems like great fun to have three personalities and not be considered schizophrenic! She is quoted as saying.......she uses a variety of pen names so that the reader will always know which of her three world's they will be entering when they pick up one of her books.

Jayne earned a BS degree in History from the University of California at Santa Cruz. Fearing that she would not have many opportunities with a history degree, she received a Master's Degree from San Jose State University in Library Science. After she spent a time as an elementary school librarian, she decided to move into higher academia, then into corporate library work. She had met her husband, Frank Krentz, at San Jose State, where he received his engineering degree.

Krentz spends much of her free time writing and speaking about the value to women that the romance genre represents. There are currently over 23 million copies of her books in print worldwide. She firmly advocates that......."romance is among the most enduring, because it addresses the values of family and human emotional bonds". She and her husband Frank live in Seattle, Washington.
