Jayne Ann Krentz is the author of more than fifty New York Times bestsellers. She has written contemporary romantic suspense novels under that name, as well as futuristic and historical romance novels under the pseudonyms Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick, respectively. There are more than 35 million copies of her books in print.
Handsome, rich Gabe Madison is a client for beautiful, rich Lillian Harte's successful computer matchmaking service. Early in the story, it becomes evident that Gabe is after the matchmaker herself, in spite of a three-generation family feud. Both Gabe and Lillian end up moving from the big city back to Eclipse Bay, a small town on the Oregon coast. Woven into the development of their romance are encounters with their crusty grandfathers, a kinky sex therapist, and a group of people convinced a local think tank is the home of frozen alien life forms. Joyce Bean's reading is clear and well paced; she gives individual voices to the locals (who are far more interesting than the romantic couple). The production is supported by appropriate music, which makes for a smooth, polished presentation. Recommended for public libraries with an audience for light, romantic fiction.
