A favorite book returns: Shield's Lady by Jayne Ann Krentz

There are so many moth-eaten books I loved and wished I had ebook copies of, that whenever I see mention of one coming out in ebook format, I literally cheer. Honest. I pumped my fist in the air and yipped when I saw that Shield's Lady by Jayne Ann Krentz was now available in ebook! Woot! Thank you so much Jayne for making this happen. I had two copies of Shield's Lady by Amanda Glass in paperback. Two because the first one fell in the bathtub the night after I bought it, and then had to get a second copy to replace the first. That second copy has been read and reread about a hundred times over the years. I love the story premise, the plot is incredible and the characters reach out and grab you and once you start, you can't stop reading until the end. The story is fast-paced, oozing with sensuality, a full on paranormal/SFR which was hot (back before we had erotic romance), and still holds up well, imo.My Nook is soo happy to add this ebook to it's library! :-)

A Jayne Ann Krentz Classic. Now available in ebook.
Legends can be dangerous, just ask Sariana Dayne. She sets out to hire one and wakes up married to him. It’s a marriage of infuriating inconvenience as far as Sariana is concerned.
Gryph Chassyn stirs all her senses but he’s one of the mysterious mercenaries known as Shields. Sensible women do not marry such men. But for Gryph, marrying Sariana is a matter of honor, passion and survival. He needs her in ways she cannot even imagine.
Before Sariana can find a way to escape the bond that has been forged between them, she and Gryph are caught up in a desperate quest to save their world. The future looks a little different but some things, like love and passion, and murder never change.
Originally published June 1989 by Popular Library w/a Amanda Glass and reissued January 1996 by Warner Books w/a Jayne Ann Krentz.

I love her books, have read so many of them and they are all good.

Ditto. I've always loved her writing and when she started branching out and writing SFR, I was first in line with my credit card. lol.
