Mini Me: Legacy by Jayne Ann Krentz

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

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

You always take a risk reading a romance from the year you were born and this one turned out to be about a 50% hit. Honor and Conn's whole relationship had that 'Harlequin' feel in that he was a bit of jerk and for some reason she continued to put up with it. Because she 'loved him'. Go figure right?

I thought the mystery of their past was well done in the whodunnit sense but didn't weave as seamlessly with Conn and Honor's HEA. It's definitely an old fashioned romance and if that's your thing go for it; I'm glad I picked this up for $.50 because as much as I love Jayne Ann Krentz this is just not gonna go down in the annals of time as one of my favorites.
