What happens when Mr. Right is all wrong? 


Cleopatra Robbins has imagined the moment when she’ll meet the man of her dreams. But when Max Fortune strides into the Robbins’ Nest Inn, a devastating sensation sweeps through her. She knows it’s him. And he’s all wrong!

Head of the giant Curzon Hotel chain, a cynical man with a passion for rare works of art, Max is looking for five priceless paintings left to him by his mentor, Jason Curzon. With one long look at Cleo Robbins, Max knows he’s gazing on a masterpiece Šand for the first time in his life, the solitary and powerful executive is overcome with the strangest desire for that wonderful institution called home. But despite their mutual attraction, Max suspects Cleo of hiding something—and by the time he realizes her secrets have nothing to do with the lost treasures, it may be too late to save her from the danger rising out of her past.

    " This is one of my favorite Jayne Ann Krentz books. I love the unexpected lover. The character development is very fun. The little boy and his lucky ducky, the lover and his cain, the young lovers who teach a lesson. It's just a fun book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/15/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olga | 12/12/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Desiree | 9/26/2013

    " well i love the book and was good to read and could not put it down "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hermelinda | 5/20/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 5/19/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 5/5/2013

    " 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 Ellen | 4/13/2013

    " One of my favorite guilty pleasures to re-read again and again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathy | 2/5/2013

    " 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 Vanessa | 1/24/2013

    " 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 Erika | 12/15/2012

    " Could not put this book down. The characters are real and engaging. I know this is a book that I will re-read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 9/5/2012

    " 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. "
