Synopsis

Romance writer Sarah Fleetwood is obsessed with the Fleetwood Flowers, five pairs of gold earrings that constitute a long lost family treasure. According to the legend, shortly before her death, Emelina Fleetwood buried the earrings on her property and drew a map to the location. Now Sarah is determined to embark on a quest to find the flowers. Ex-adventurer Gideon Trace doesn't want anything to do with Sarah and her quest for the Flowers, a fact he has repeatedly made clear ever since she first contacted him. Obviously his discouragement wasn't strong enough because now Sarah is standing at his front door insisting that he is just the man to lead her treasure hunt. A woman who believes in happy endings is about to share a cozy cabin in the mountains with a man who is large, cold-eyed and dangerous. What could possibly go wrong?

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.
