Jayne Ann Krentz - Flash
Just finished this this evening. Action pack and romance with a touch of mystery. Gotta love it.
Once again, Jayne Ann Krentz brings wit and intelligence to her distinctive, sure-fire recipe for contemporary romantic suspense. Self-made venture capitalist Jasper Sloan is restless for new opportunities when a client's death leaves him with a controlling interest in Glow, Inc. The other 49 percent is owned by sleek, sexy Olivia Chantry, whose sharp mind and shapely body immediately attract Jasper's interest. Before the combative new partners can agree on how to run Glow, they're beset by a more disturbing problem--a blackmailer with access to deeply buried secrets and few qualms about using violence to get what he wants. Olivia's colorful family members, a nosy news hound, and various society types add touches of humor while the protagonists' self-confident, straightforward approach to romance is refreshingly free of angst. As always, Krentz pairs two equally strong people, endowing them with just enough quirks to make them real, and provides plenty of plot twists to keep her story humming. Flash is romantic suspense of a high order. --
