Take one strong-minded lady's companion who has been dismissed from so many posts that she is now reduced to penning her own references, add the volume of dangerous, arcane lore that went missing in With This Ring, and an enigmatic financier with a mysterious past -- and you've got the strange brew for I Thee Wed.

New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz has been gathering loyal readers for years with her unique blend of humor, sex, and romantic suspense. Whether she is romancing the past as Amanda Quick, the present as Jayne Ann Krentz, or the future Jayne Castle, she writes compelling stories of love between strong, intelligent men and women. Her books often explore themes of trust, loyalty and commitment between characters who fit together so well you can almost hear the click as you read.

Krentz began in the late 1970s writing serial romances for MacFadden and Dell Candlelight Ecstasy. She moved on to write for both Silhouette awards and Harlequin before turning exclusively to writing novels in the early 1990s. She now has over 30 million books in print.

Her early works were often ahead of their time. Her heroines were strong and stood toe-to-toe with their lovers at a time when many romance writers were still creating demure, easily-intimidated female characters. While her male characters were initially a bit intensely "macho," perhaps to make up for the independence of the heroines, her heroes have evolved over time into men who are not afraid of a woman's strength. Of course, even today her heroes remain, as always, "alpha males." 

Krentz's serial romances have become highly collectible in recent years. MacFaddens, in particular those written as Jayne Bentley, reportedly sell for as much as $200, when they can be found. However, her Harlequin, Silhouette, and even Dell Candlelights can still be found for between $4 and $10 (often less in thrift shops and used book stores).

You will find book covers for each of the over 100 books she has written, as well as brief synopses and reviews of many of them, with more being added all the time.
