|Summary, etc.:||"A man's quest to find answers for those who are haunted by the past leads him deeper into the shadows in this electrifying novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Promise Not to Tell. Quinton Zane is back. Jack Lancaster, consultant to the FBI, has always been drawn to the coldest of cold cases, the kind that law enforcement either considers unsolvable or else has chalked up to accidents or suicides. As a survivor of a fire, he finds himself uniquely compelled by arson cases. His almost preternatural ability to get inside the killer's head has garnered him a reputation in some circles--and complicated his personal life. The more cases Jack solves, the closer he slips into the darkness. His only solace is Winter Meadows, a meditation therapist. After particularly grisly cases, Winter can lead Jack back to peace. But as long as Quinton Zane is alive, Jack will not be at peace for long. Having solidified his position as the power behind the throne of his biological family's hedge fund, Zane sets out to get rid of Anson Salinas's foster sons, starting with Jack" --|

*Starred Review* Winter Meadows has a firm policy about dating clients. Fortunately, Jack Lancaster no longer seems to need her professional services. Winter has done everything she can as a meditation instructor to help Jack gain control of the fire-maze dream that has haunted him for years and to develop the lucid dreaming skills he uses to solve cold cases involving arson. All of which means Winter is now free to go out with Jack, who seems to be more than open to the idea. Just as things are heating up personally between Winter and Jack, however, a cold case with strong personal connections to Jack suddenly becomes deadly hot for the both of them. Krentz (Promise Not to Tell, 2018) expertly infuses the tautly constructed plot of her latest addictively readable novel with just the right ratio of riveting suspense and sleekly sexy romance. Wrap all this up in writing that is spiked with a generous dash of wry humor, and you have another delectable literary concoction from the leading mixologist of romantic suspense.

Romance: January 2019
Brace for adventure when reading Amanda Bouchet’s Nightchaser, the first in a new sci-fi romance series. Captain Tess Bailey is on the run, having stolen a valuable, dangerous serum from a conformist galactic government that brutally insists on order and restraint. Finding temporary refuge after a particularly close call, the captain meets cocky and charming Shade Ganavan, who says he can provide much-needed repairs to her ship and perhaps some personal diversion, as Tess is weary of always watching over her shoulder. But danger is headed their way—will Shade prove to be ally or foe? This is pure, engrossing entertainment as Bouchet deftly builds a galactic world that desperately needs rebel champions like Tess and her crew. Characters’ backgrounds and motivations are slowly revealed throughout what is otherwise a fast-paced, action-packed story. There’s mystery, tension and more than enough romance to grab the heart.
Jayne Ann Krentz offers a smooth blend of romance and suspense in Untouchable. Cold case investigator Jack Lancaster is making strides in overcoming his horrifying nightmares with the help of Winter Meadows, a hypnotist and meditation guide. He might not know exactly what lies beneath her positive attitude and bright smile, but he’s intrigued enough to take their business relationship in a different direction. But when Winter’s life is threatened, Jack becomes worried that someone from his past might have tried to hurt him through her. In order to protect Winter, he must hunt down the man who tried to burn him alive many years ago. Some satisfyingly creepy villains, the atmospheric Pacific Northwest setting and a splash of potent sexual chemistry between the two leads let the reader know they’re in the hands of a master storyteller.
First loves find another chance in The Duke I Once Knew by Olivia Drake. The youngest daughter of landed gentry, Abigail Linton devoted her early life to caring for her invalid mother. Now her parents are gone, and at nearly 30, Abby opts to take a governess position on a neighboring estate. Caring for the absent duke’s younger sister will give her a new and independent life, so she ignores her worries that she’ll encounter the lord of the manor, Maxwell Bryce. Max was Abby’s first love, but she hasn’t seen him in 15 years. Then, unexpectedly, the duke returns and is astonished when he meets the newest member of his household. Learning to trust one another is the essence of all good romances, and that’s what Abby and Max must do, or else lose out on an opportunity for lasting love in this sweet and tender tale.

When Jack Lancaster's mortal enemy goes after his neighbor Winter Meadows, hoping to frame him for her murder, the cold-case specialist takes the opportunity to follow the scant clues and, with his family's and Winter's help, force a confrontation. Jack Lancaster's mother was killed in the cult fire set by Quinton Zane when Jack was 12, and since then he's become a professor, writer, and consultant on the criminal mind, with an expertise in solving cold cases. When he rents a cottage in Eclipse Bay on the Oregon coast, he meets his neighbor Winter, a hypnotist who's started her own business as a meditation instructor. Jack finds her skills beneficial in helping him control the lucid dreams that he uses in his investigations, dreams that have recently become more unruly, a situation that he thinks may be connected to Quinton Zane. When he saves Winter from an attack by a "former-client-turned-stalker," he is convinced that Zane is somehow behind the event and takes the matter to his family: two other victims of the cult fire and the man who saved and then fostered them. At first skeptical, they begin to believe they might actually bring Zane down if they stay under the radar and let him weave a web meant to catch them. Meanwhile, keeping Winter safe and by his side manifests a relationship Jack had hoped for, but if Zane has his way, no one Jack cares about will survive. Luckily Jack and his brothers are a few steps ahead and ready to bring Zane down for good. Krentz rounds out her Quinton Zane series with a couple to root for, a tiny hint of the supernatural, a page-burning plot, a vanquished villain (of course!), a sexy, heart-warming romance, and a quick series check-in and wrap-up. Krentz never disappoints, and this one hits the sweet spot. Copyright Kirkus 2018 Kirkus/BPI Communications. All rights reserved.

As Winter helps Jack sort out the fiery mazes of his visionsâand nightmaresâtheir relationship turns romantic. Then things turn deadly as Winter is accosted by a client-turned-stalker who ends up dead, and Jack realizes this is connected to his decades-long search for the madman responsible for his mother's death.Copyright 2018 Library Journal.
VERDICTIncorporating emotional electricity, smart dialog, and her trademark soupÃ§on of paranormal glamour, Krentz pens a twisted tale of insane greed and obsession that brings an uncommonly wicked villain to justice and deftly concludes the story begun in When All the Girls Have Gone( LJ12/16) and Promise Not To Tell( LJ12/17). Krentz also writes historical romantic suspense as Amanda Quick and futuristic/paranormal romantic suspense as Jayne Castle; she lives in Seattle.

Krentz's formulaic and lackluster third Cutler, Sutter, and Salinas romantic thriller (afterCopyright 2018 Publishers Weekly.
Promise Not to Tell) follows hypnotist Winter Meadows as she gets sucked into cold-case investigator Jack Lancaster's quest to find Quinton Zane, the pyromaniac con artist who murdered Jack's mother. Jack has the unique ability to use extended lucid dreams to sort through clues on his investigations. When he turns to Winter for help controlling this ability, the pair of former foster kids develop an unexpected bond, a connection that escalates when Jack saves Winter from a former client who has stalked her to remote Eclipse Bay, Ore. Jack's conviction that the stalker was manipulated by Zane proves correct, as Zane, deep in his latest and most personal con, attempts to eliminate all possible threats against him. Jack and Winter's ensuing investigation is a game of cat and mouse between a criminal who always assumes he is the smartest in the room, and a budding couple with new-age tricks up their sleeves. Though there is little to set this romantic thriller apart, Krentz's fans will enjoy the familiar elements and callbacks to previous installments. Agent: Steven Axelrod, the Axelrod Agency. (Jan.)
