Trust Me by Jayne Ann Krentz

An incredibly love story that left me smiling.

Desdemona Wainwright thinks Sam Stark looks much too calm for a man who has just been left at the alter.  The males in her theatrical family would be letting their feelings explode.  But she was hired to cater his wedding, not to save it.  Desdemona marches into Stark’s den to demand the much-needed payment for the canceled reception-not to fall in love.  But the self-controlled, steel-willed man behind Stark Security Systems, a multi-million-dollar consulting firm, does have the cold, logical brain of a computer-along with the muscular, sensual body of a medieval knight.  He is Desdemona’s exact opposite.  And don’t opposites attract?

Sam Stark cannot understand what is wrong with treating marriage as a business deal.  He ex-fiancee, stately blond Pamela, and seemed so perfect so reasonable.  This hoyden with wild red hair and huge turquoise eyes, insisting he write a check for hundreds of uneaten miniature asparagus tarts, is a different type: temoermental, volatile, and likely to drive a man crazy with her moods-or with desire.  But Desdemona has the professional catering skills he needs for his business.  It never occurs to him that she might not accept his offer to be his no-strings-attached, stand-in wife.

Desdemona has other plans for herself and Stark.  She thinks involving him with her staff, made up of her relatives and other out-of-work actors, will give him a sense of family.  He thinks he’d rather spend his time with computers, but all too soon his private life and his business affairs are under siege.  Desdemona is breaking down the walls around his heart-and someone is trying to get into his files to steal a top-secret computer program.  Stark’s suspicions soon center on the people Desdemona holds most dear, as intrigue and murder swirl them all.

I loved this book.  It was cute, humorous and enjoyable to read.

I loved how Krentz has a simple beginning but escaltes into a dangerous situation as the pieces begin to drop.

The family dynamics are very real and loving.  Each character is recognized by their abilities and flaws.  And as a plot goes this one was fascinating to read about.

Trust Me is a book you will want to pick up.
