Honor Mayfield was about to walk into a trap. She thought that her chance meeting with Conn Landry was a fornunate stroke of luck. In fact, he had cleverly set up up a long time ago.

As a member of the Thoroughbred horse-racing set in CA, Conn was well respected. But Honor was about to sidcover the real man beneath the controlled exterior. Too late, she realized she was falling for someone who was seeking to avenge a lecay of murder and betrayal. A peice of her past was mysteriously linked to Conn, and now they were tangled together in a web of deception..and desire.

I have read most of Jayne Ann Krentz's books, I find her a good author.

That being said, I hated this book. The relationship between the hero and heroine came off as being extremely abusive, not sexy. There is a point in the story where the heroine is actually afraid the hero is going physically abuse her, and then when he doesn't she takes that as a sign that he's not that bad. In my opinion a relationship where you think you might actually have to worry about your physical well-being is not a healthy relationship to be in.

Also, I felt the "love" between the hero and heroine to be very forced. In the beginning the heroine is wary and uncertain of the hero, and then in the next chapter she is in love with him. The author spent no time building their relationship for the reader, she just stated that it had happened. Not really what I'm looking for in a love story.

All in all, it was not worth reading. Try reading any other book by this author, but don't bother with this one.
