With the inevitable wisdom of hindsight, she would feel the lazy menace in him as clearly as she now felt her own deeply intrigued response, and Leya Brandon would wonder bitterly why her normally astute mind and intuition had betrayed her. It was to be only the second time in all her twenty-seven years that she had allowed herself to be misled by a man, but Leya would take little comfort from that fact. She rarely needed a second lesson in anything. But for the moment, on the dance floor of the secluded inn on the wild Oregon coast, Leya wasn't thinking of the future.

From the Publisher
Love has a dangerous side in these compelling classics from New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz
Leya Brandon doesn''t know what—if anything—to believe about Court Tremayne. He already lied about his name. And while she thinks her heart isn''t at risk, she clearly underestimates his all-consuming desire to win her for his own. Little does she know that Court has no intention of stopping his pursuit…not until he leaves her hungering for the fulfillment only he can give.
With his carefully groomed Southern manners, Yale Ransom might have stepped straight out of Gone with the Wind. But stockbroker Dara Bancroft senses a passion beneath the glossy surface of her prospective client, and recklessly, she offers him an unspoken challenge, never expecting that their conversation could explode into desire she''s never felt before. But she pushes him too far, and now Yale wants to make her pay…straight from the heart.
