Typical romance by Krentz, although this was written early in her careet under the name of Stephanie James.
When a shady business deal goes awry, Honor Knight is desperate to flee the U.S. with her life -- even if it means taking refuge deep in rural Mexico. Her captor has other ideas. Judd Raven has been hired -- by two men claiming to be her father and brother -- to hunt Honor down.
Honor knows that delivery into their hands will mean certain death. Judd's been led to believe she's a compulsive liar. How can she prove to her kidnapper that these men are seasoned, murderous criminals? Judd's just a cold-blooded mercenary with money on his mind. Or could there still be a beating heart underneath that rugged exterior?
Mercenary Judd tracks down Honor in a small Mexican village where she is hiding from her former business partners who want her dead. Convincing Judd not to take her back to be murdered is a tough task and she'll do anything to make him see her point of view. Hot sex, strong language...typical Kentz read. Great way to spend a winter evening reading!
This is an early Krentz written in 1983 and reissued.
Interesting storyline. worth the read.
If you love the 'tough guy' hero...you will love Raven's Prey. Krentz is a master romance novelist. You can't go wrong with this book.
It was a nice little romance, mystery novel. Light hearted. I enjoyed it.
Always interesting to read early works by favorite authors.
From the back...
"Honor Knight had to convince Judd RAven to let her go. Her life depended onit! But he refused to believe that the two men who had hired him to find her were anything but what they claimed to be: her father and brother."
