Synopsis

Historical romance novelist Kate Inskip needs a break. Divorced, overworked, and completely stressed out, her writing buddies decide to surprise her with exactly what she needs—a vacation on a remote island that boasts a rich history and a crumbling castle built by an 18th century pirate. It's the kind of story Kate can't possibly pass up and it will allow her to turn her thoughts from the reality of today to the romance of the past. But things don't go according to plan. A long flight, lost luggage, and a missed connection leave Kate wishing she'd stayed home. A knife-wielding mugger is the last straw. Too late to help, but just in time to enjoy the show, Jared Hawthorne catches a harried woman in the act of kicking the local thief into submission. As far as Jared is concerned, Kate is the most interesting tourist to arrive on Amethyst Island in a very long time. Kate, however, has already concluded that a month-long vacation on the island is about thirty days too long. Still, Jared Hawthorne is starting to look very familiar . . .

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.
