Synopsis

Olivia Chantry may keep her desk in disarray, but she's a dynamo when it comes to business: her Seattle-based company, Light Fantastic, organizes dazzling events that create the flash her clients need to promote their products or their causes. Her marvelous success has almost made up for a marriage that ended in disaster and left her wedded to a career instead of a mate.She certainly has enough on her well-sculpted shoulders when she inherits a portion -- 49 percent, to be precise -- of Glow, Inc., her uncle's high-tech lighting firm. But it's the interloper who bagged the other 51 percent with whom Olivia has butted heads: Jasper Sloan, a venture capitalist and dealmaker known as a man with all his ducks in a row, and his neat, orderly life under control. From the start of their feisty business dealings, the so-called partners nearly crash and burn: they are suspicious of each other's motives. But the snap, crackle and pop of their sexual energy can not be denied. Now, their steamy joint venture is headed unmistakably in one direction: trouble.Sparkling with Jayne Ann Krentz's irresistible blend of sassy wit and sheer suspense, Flash explodes into passionate pyrotechnics as a beautifully mismatched pair finds the bottom line isn't making it in the marketplace -- it's the merger of hearts.

Author Bio

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.
