Throwback Thursday:The Ties that Bind by Jayne Ann Krentz

Author: Jayne Ann Krentz
First published in 1986 by Harlequin

Shannon Raine lives in the artistic community of Mendocino, where she designs silk-screened fabrics that look like medieval illuminations. When Garth Sheridan appears on the beach outside her home, she is immediately drawn to him, convinced that the dark stranger must be a writer or an artist. But when the two meet, she realizes that nothing could be further from the truth. She has nothing in common with the San Diego businessman whose corporate world has taught him not to trust anyone. With an undeniable attraction between them, can they find a common ground in their very different lives?

love you, JAK, but this one was a DNF for me.  I couldn't keep listening to this train wreck of a book. I am all for a cheesy romance, but this one was just over the top. It's never a good thing when a love scene makes you laugh out loud.  I don't think that is the effect the author is ever go for.  It's definitely an early romance by this author.  The hero and the heroine are unlikable.  Garth is a jerk and Shannon is naive beyond words.  I say do yourself a favor and skip this one!
