When the handsome, wealthy Max Fortune, art collector extraordinaire, inherits five paintings at the death of his long-time friend and benefactor, he expects to receive them. Instead, his benefactor leaves only a clue to their whereabouts in a cryptic note which reads, "The most precious things I leave you, you'll find at the Robbins' Nest Inn."

   

Cleopatra Robbins, the beautiful owner of the Inn, always believed when the man of her dreams came along, she would know. When Max's fierce treasure hunt brings him to her doorstep she realizes he is the embodiment of her fantasies -- except he's all wrong!

Could this hard-edged man make her risk trusting and loving again? Cleo decides to help Max break down his defenses, while keeping her own intact. Max knows she's hiding something -- and by the time he realizes it's not the paintings, it's almost too late to save her from her dangerous past.

    " This is one of her more simpler romances, and I enjoyed it immensely and breezed through it in one day. As usual, her characters are funny, interesting and likable. It's a fun, easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 12/10/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lindsey Jackson | 12/3/2013

    " My apologies to any fans out there, but I found this read to be predictable, recycled and exasperating. There are far too many fantastic books out there- don't waste your time with this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hermelinda | 6/5/2012

    " This was the first Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick book I read many years ago. It's still by far, my favorite! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathy | 6/23/2011

    " Abridged Pulp Romance/Mystery from my pile of free audio books. Fans of Krentz's say this is one of her best. One of the mysteries was way too obvious and the romantic encounters were too detailed so I wouldn't recommend this to anyone and won't waste my time reading anything else by her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 5/1/2011

    " I was really in the mood to buy a book at BN and I decided to get a nice romantic suspense book. I picked this one up and it sounded really interesting. It had a touch of paranormalcy in it and also had great sexual tension and action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 4/6/2011

    " Still good after the first read back in 1994. I really like Krentz's secondary characters. However, the suspense/mystery elements were rather weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane ~Firefly~ | 1/7/2011

    " Standard JAK. Cleo has made a new family for herself at her inn and when Max shows up looking for his inheritance from his mentor, he finds something better than paintings, once he lets himself feel. The subplot with the Curzon hotel chain had some rocky points, but otherwise it was all good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olga Godim | 12/21/2010

    " A romantic suspense novel by a master. Nothing original, but reads easily and fast. One of those books that I reread occasionally when I hit a reading rut. It lifted my mood, granted me a few hours of oblivion, and prepared me to try a new novel again. "
