Family Man by Jayne Ann Krentz

A decade of working for the high-powered Gilchrist family empire has made sassy Katy Wade determined to open her own business. But there's one last problem she must solve before she can 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."

Meanwhile, 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 strategy sure to make this red-haired angel madder than hell, but she's the only one who can turn this devilish rogue into a family man. Now he must trust Katy with his secrets -- and she must believe in his love.

This is one of the books I just picked up at the library book sale and boy was it worth the $.50! Jayne Ann Krentz does a tremendous job of writing good romance - there is no really higher compliment I can pay her. Her heroes are classic, tough but not too tough, and her heroines know how to love and how to take care themselves when necessary. She writes a variety of books under other names, some historical and some paranormal, but when you pick up a Jayne Ann Krentz be sure that you're going to be experiencing a smooth ride. Krentz always writes engaging, interesting romances and no matter what the cover description, it's always one that's worth a second look!

Overall Feeling - Thumbs up! A great classic romance and Luke is the perfect example of a tough, but not without emotions, alpha male.

Series - None.
