As I was browsing throught the aisles of books it got me thinking that it has been a while since I picked up Jayne Ann Krentz. I love her style and the simple to complex characters which are developed. I have read many of her books but I wanted to start and revisit them.
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 Cruzon. With one long look at Cleo Robbins, Max knows he’s gazing at a masterpiece…and 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.
Krentz delivers a sense of passion in each book that she writes but what draws me to all her books are the characters. In some way or the other they are real. They have a sense of being real and not just fiction. Within Grand Passion you could relate to the characters problems they were facing which is a powerful abiltiy to do with books.
The plot is a cute romance. A man looking for his inhertience but finds much more. The characters of the book are delightful. They are a little wacky and quirky but all together real and lovable. They are the type of characters you would imagine working in a small inn.
There are secrets and sabotage moving throughout the book which gives a little mystery to keep you reading.
Grand Passion is a fun book to read, just to loose yourself in for a few hours.
