Family Man, by Jayne Ann Krentz

>> Tuesday, December 10, 2002

Next up.. a reread. I need to read something that won't have me turning the pages to see what happens, neglecting everything else, because I have to finish writing the plan for my thesis by the 19th (and have to finish a first draft for my tutor by next Thursday). Hence, a reread. I chose my perennial favourite, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Family Man.

Plot summary:

Almost a decade of working for the high-powered Gilchrist family empire has made Katy Wade sassy, spunky -- and secretly determined to open her own business. There's one last problem she has to solve before she feels free to leave. The Gilchrists need an heir apparent to save their mysteriously floundering fortunes, and there's only one man for the job: Luke Gilchrist. All his life the Gilchrists have made Luke pay for his father's scandal, and now he's a renegade who's sworn he'll never go home -- except to get even. Katy must persuade Luke to use his business expertise to rescue his family, but one look in his sexy green eyes, and she knows why they affectionately call him "the Bastard."

What she doesn't know is that Luke's decided he wants her even more than he wants revenge. He agrees to play savior, but only with Katy at his side. It's a high-handed tactic sure to make this saucy red haired angel madder than hell, but she's the only one who can turn this devilish rogue into a family man. Luke may be an SOB of a CEO, but he knows the bottom line is heartbreak...unless he can trust Katy with his secrets and she can believe in his love.

Posted later...

Finished Family Man. What can I say? Beautiful, vintage Krentz, an A-. Actually, nothing I haven't said before in my comments about other Krentz books: smart heroines, smart, vulnerable heros, very light suspense, lots of emphasis on relationships and the love story....

The only thing that bothered me here was how noone thought it was really stupid that Justine was so insistent on accepting only family as heads of the company. I'm just not a big believer of the "blood is thicker that water" idea.
